How to Clean Sheet Vinyl Floors
Your step-by-step guide to great looking sheet vinyl, from the very first cleaning to everyday care.
Routine Floor Cleaning
Sweep or vacuum regularly to remove dirt and grit that can abrade, dull or scratch your floor. Do not use a vacuum with a beater brush, because it may damage the floor’s surface. Wipe up spills promptly with a damp cloth or mop. For a more thorough cleaning, wash your floor with Bright ’N Easy No-Rinse Cleaner or other suitable, non-detergent based resilient floor cleaner.
Cleaning Tips for Newly Installed Floors
Ask your installer about the method used for installation. If “full spread”, keep traffic light during the first 24 hours so adhesive can dry properly. If the floor has been seamed, avoid stepping on the seam sealer for 24 hours so it can dry undisturbed. Avoid scrubbing or washing the floor for at least three days after installation. Spot clean the floor, avoiding all seams. After 24 hours, sweep or vacuum the floor to remove loose dirt. If needed, after installation use lighter fluid applied with a clean cloth to remove scuff marks and adhesive residue. Keep traffic off treated area for 30 minutes. Wash the floor with Bright ’N Easy No-Rinse Cleaner or other suitable resilient floor cleaner.
