Sweep, dry mop, and vacuum your vinyl flooring frequently (but be sure not to use a beater bar when vacuuming, as this can scuff your flooring). If your flooring ever needs a deeper clean, use a manufacturer-approved cleaning solution. Use entry mats to keep dirt off of your flooring, and consider placing heavy furniture on protective mats.
Dealing with stains and spills
Vinyl is one of the simplest flooring solutions when it comes to dealing with messes. In most cases, all you need to do is mop up any spills or use a cloth. If your floors are sticky, you can follow up with a manufacturer-approved floor cleaner. If you encounter more difficult messes such as nail polish, oil, wax, or market, check with your manufacturer's guidelines for approved stain removal tips.
