Floor Care Tips

Once you have decided on the choice of luxury wood effect vinyl flooring, you may believe the hardest part of the process is over and done with simply selecting the right design for your home.

Once laid successfully in your home by a professional or by yourself, there is always the care that is needed to fully enjoy it for the decades to come. Simply taking your shoes off and swiping up a drip or two is not enough to keep your floor in its finest state.

How do you make the most of your investment moving forward?

Easy Clean

Dust and debris are the easiest parts of your floor to clean and can be done with a quip sweep with a regular brush, steering clear of wire brushes.

Although vinyl flooring is highly scratch resistant, objects like a wire brush can take extra toll on your floor. Your vacuum cleaner could have the same effect if the bristles are too low when cleaning, giving a hard time to your wear layer which over time can lead to scratching.

Microfibre mops are a great useful item as much as a regular mop, as vinyl’s waterproof properties will secure against any moisture seeping through to the underfloor.

Refrain from Specialist Chemicals

When mopping the flooring, be sure that you don’t use any specialist cleaning products (unless they are certified by the flooring product range as safe). 

Any number of mixed chemicals could cause a discoloration if not suitable for use on vinyl or a specific make. Always check into the manufacturer’s recommendations to avoid anything causing unnecessary damage. Regular household ingredients such as vinegar mixed with water have just as good an effect in keeping your floor vibrant for years to come. 

Furniture Amends

Chances are you have been told by a specialist when purchasing your lowest price Amtico flooring that heavy furniture should have felt pads placed on the feet to maximise protection and any scratches or scuffs they could cause. 

Although vinyl is of a higher degree of scratch resistant than other flooring, it can still be vulnerable towards moving heavy furniture that would leave indents or scuffs. Felt pads are a cheap and cheery thing to put on furniture that really saves your home from suffering damage and requiring replacement tiles or planks.

Keeping your cheapest Amtico flooring in the UK in fine form is a small weekly job that pays off with a lasting lifespan that far surpasses real wood or stone flooring. In keeping it tidy and secure by following these simple tasks you can be sure that your return on investment will provide wins for decades to come with Amtico or Amtico Spacia.
