Maintaining Vinyl Floors

How to Maintain a Vinyl Floor after Installation

Vinyl floors look amazing for their value, it is a popular upgrade for homeowners looking for a low-fuss solution for hard floors.  Installing vinyl floors is relatively easy, but it can be a messy affair, especially for first-timers.  You’ll have plenty of cleaning up to do, and in order to insure the job gets done correctly the first time, you’ll want a plan of attack to save yourself the stress.  We’ve put together an easy-to-follow guide of cleaning and maintaining your vinyl flooring; print it out, email a friend, and remember for future flooring projects.

Getting rid of leftover glue

If your vinyl floors aren’t the adhesive-free locking style, you’ll probably find spots where glue was pushed to the surface.  Even the most professional installations can leave a thin layer of glue at the seams.  The best way to remove glue and not damage the floors is to use a special acetone floor stripper to break the glue down, then use a soft scrapper to push it off.

Scrapping should only be attempted after allowing the acetone solution to set for the recommended time on the product label.  It should take a few minutes, at least.  Then, you’ll want to take your scrapper and slide it into the glue without applying too much force onto the floor itself.  If you find yourself struggling to move the glue, let it sit in the acetone for a few more minutes.

Three-Part Clean-up

Now that you have all visible traces of glue removed, you’re going to want to do a thorough cleaning to have a nice base to start on, making future housecleaning quicker and painless.  

If you ever find yourself overwhelmed with the prospect of cleaning your vinyl flooring and want to lean on a professional, you can find affordable services provided by, including large commercial cleaning jobs, as well as a wide range of other floor types, like Amitco/Karndean stone, porcelain, and hardwood floors for Liverpool and Wirral areas.
