How to Keep Your Luxury Vinyl Flooring Looking Good as New


Keep Your LVF Looking Like New!

  

Luxury vinyl flooring (LVF) is the fastest growing flooring segment in the United States right now. Engineered vinyl planks (EVP) and luxury vinyl tiles (LVT) are being installed in record numbers in new condos, apartments, houses and in home renovation projects.

 

We’re not talking about that old role of linoleum sheeting that warped and yellowed after only a few years. This ain’t your grandma’s vinyl flooring! Luxury vinyl tiles and planks are available from major home improvement stores, such as The Home Depot, in a variety of color and texture options.

 

Old linoleum flooring came in large sheets which had to be cut to fit and glued down to the surface. Older vinyl tiles were peel and stick, making them slightly easier to repair as you only had to repair a single tile instead of replacing the entire floor. However; both types of vinyl flooring, sheet and self-adhesive tile, only had about a 5 to 10-year life span.

 

Newer vinyl flooring comes in wide planks and has a durable surface finish that protects against minor scratches and scuffs. Modern vinyl planks simply click into place - the floating floor system installs easily just like laminate wood flooring.

 

Benefits of Installing Engineered Vinyl Plank (EVP) vs Other Flooring Types

 

  • Resilient flooring
  • Stain resistant
  • Easy to clean
  • Won’t chip like ceramic or stone tile
  • Water resistant unlike hardwood or wood laminate planks
  • Engineered to mimic the look of wood or ceramic flooring
  • Available in many color and pattern options
  • Hides minor imperfections – no need to install subfloor
  • Easy to install floating floor system – simple tongue and grove application
  • Low installation cost - no grout or messy adhesive needed
  • Cuts easily using simple hand tools – no need for wet tile saw
  • 20 to 30-year lifespan vs 10 to 15 for laminate wood planks

 

Easily Clean and Maintain Your Luxury Vinyl Flooring

 

Put the wax down! One of the major benefits of using this type of flooring is that luxury vinyl is easy to keep clean. It doesn’t require any heavy-duty cleaning or scrubbing and you also don’t have to worry about waxing. Just a simple sweep, damp mop and you’re good to go!

 

 

Unlike laminate wood floors, which are about 99% wood, luxury vinyl is 100% plastic making it extremely moisture-resistant. It can handle water and spills without you having to worry about it discoloring or warping. Laminate is not recommended in high-humidity or moisture prone areas.

 

Both flooring types have been designed to mimic a variety of more expensive flooring types like hardwood, ceramic, stone and slate. Luxury vinyl flooring lasts almost twice as long as laminate, making it an affordable option for anyone thinking about replacing their old floors.

  

 

Protecting Your Luxury Vinyl Floor 

  • Place a doormat in front of each exterior door to lessen the amount of dirt and debris that gets tracked into your home
  • Clean up small spills as they happen
  • Choose a soft bristle broom when sweeping your floor
  • Stay away from harsh, abrasive cleansers that could potentially scratch the floor
  • Attach a microfiber bonnet applicator over a sponge mop when cleaning
  • Never drag items across the flooring surface. Pick up and move smaller items or place furniture protector feet under larger items
