If you’ve recently set your sights on vinyl flooring for your home, business, or condo, you are probably well aware of the fact that this type of flooring is relatively low maintenance. Indeed, waterproof flooring doesn’t require periodic refinishing as solid hardwood flooring does, and you don’t need to panic if you spill something on it. Therefore, it renders itself a great choice for the busy, on-the-go household or business that doesn’t have much time or finances to invest in flooring upkeep.


All that being said, your waterproof flooring can still benefit from a bit of TLC every once in a while, just like every other flooring type out there. If you order from E Hardwoods & Flooring, you can trust that you’re getting a quality product, but taking care of your flooring investment is the best way to ensure its longevity.


Vinyl flooring requires comparatively little care, but, again, just like with every flooring type, there’s a right and wrong way to do it. E Hardwoods & Flooring, a vendor of waterproof wood-look flooring, describes how to take care of your vinyl flooring below.

Proper Vinyl Flooring Care

As durable as vinyl flooring is, it still is vulnerable to the occasional stain, scrape, and gouge. While you don’t need to treat this flooring type with kid gloves, being aware that it isn’t invincible, will help to keep your vinyl flooring looking fresh for years.


If you’re a vinyl flooring owner, make sure to:


  • Vacuum or sweep regularly | Vinyl flooring benefits from this just as solid hardwood flooring and engineered hardwood flooring do. Grit, sand, and debris can easily get ground underfoot, gradually wearing down your vinyl flooring over time.
  • Mop up stains as they occur | While, as stated above, a spill is no reason to panic when it comes to vinyl flooring, it still isn’t wise to leave liquid sitting on top of it for an extended period of time. It could cause a stain! Wipe up any spills as they occur, and your flooring will be absolutely fine.
  • Protect your vinyl flooring from your furniture | Many big box and home improvement stores sell products, such as glides, that can be applied to furniture legs and the like to prevent scrapes and scratches.
