How to Care for Luxury Vinyl Flooring:

  1. To ensure your luxury vinyl is protected, it is recommended to clean your SPC floor with a luxury vinyl floor cleaner and a microfiber mop.
  2. Using a steam cleaner on your SPC floor is not recommended.
  3. When spills occur, remove them from the floor immediately.
  4. It is advisable to use felt pads or coaster protectors to avoid damaging your vinyl floor due to furniture and chair legs. Ensure that chairs with casters have soft neoprene wheels appropriate for vinyl flooring. If the casters are hard or made of plastic, replace them with soft wheels specifically designed for use on vinyl floors. Moreover, consider using a suitable desk mat to provide additional protection.
  5. Never drag heavy items of furniture over the floor; always lift instead. Make sure furniture legs have a large surface area in contact with the floor and are affixed with non-staining floor protectors. The taller and wider the furniture feet are, the greater the disbursement of weight, which helps avoid damage to the floor.
  6. Ensure the interior room temperature is always maintained between 55°F - 85°F (13°-30°C). Three Season Rooms can be maintained between 0°F - 140°F (-17 and 40°C).
