High-traffic areas are often the perfect spots for vinyl flooring, as this durable material tends to take a beating in stride. The best way to clean a vinyl floor depends on the type of vinyl, as well as the type of stain. Try these tips for keeping your vinyl beautiful.


Remove Surface Dirt

Surface dirt has a way of dulling any surface because it gets ground in over time. Daily sweeping is a must to keep a vinyl floor clean. Vacuuming the floor with an attachment brush is another effective way of removing surface dirt and dust. Never wet clean your floor without sweeping it first to get rid of surface dirt.


The Right Cleaner for the Type of Vinyl

No-wax vinyl needs a cleaner made for no-wax flooring. Older vinyl floors will likely need waxing, so you can clean these surfaces with standard detergent and warm water so you don't take off the wax. Never rub too hard on an older vinyl floor, because you'll probably take off wax along with dirt. Rinse the floor well to remove soap residue. When it's time to wax your vinyl, follow the instructions on the container carefully.


Keep It Gentle When Possible

It's always wise to start your cleaning process using the most gentle approach possible. If you can remove dirt with just a warm, damp rag or mop, do so. If you need to resort to a standard cleanser to remove dirt and stains, this should be your next step. Always make sure that the detergent you use is designed for your type of vinyl.

One of the best and most gentle cleansers for vinyl is apple cider or white vinegar. You'll see dirt disappear as you lightly mop with the vinegar, and it will never leave a soapy build-up on the floor. If your floor is really dirty, you could add a couple of drops of dishwashing liquid to the vinegar. Be sure to rinse the floor if you try this option.


Vinyl Cleaning Tips

Always use as little water as possible when cleaning your vinyl flooring. Using too much water will eventually cause the glue bond holding the vinyl in place to fail.

Rinse soap off the floor completely, because the residue left behind will attract dirt and make the floor dirtier in the long run.


Cleaning Stubborn Stains

When scuffs appear on your floor, rub them gently with WD-40 lubricant until they disappear. Use vinegar and water to remove the lubricant from the floor.

Stubborn food stains are easy to remove if you make a paste of equal parts baking soda and water. Rub gently to remove the stains, and rinse well. Tackle ink and lipstick stains with isopropyl alcohol, and use mineral spirits to remove paint and Crayon stains.
