Maintaining LVT Flooring for Longevity

Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) flooring is renowned for its practicality and durability. However, to ensure your investment stands the test of time, proper care and maintenance are crucial. In this article, we'll explore several key strategies to help you get the most out of your LVT flooring.

Invest in Effective Barrier Matting

One of the first lines of defence for your LVT flooring is an effective barrier matting system. Placing high-quality mats at entrances and high traffic areas can significantly reduce the risk of scratches and indentations caused by dirt and grit from shoes. Preventing these particles from entering your home is a proactive way to maintain your flooring's pristine condition.

Regular Cleaning Is Essential

Keeping your LVT flooring clean is paramount to its longevity. Find below cleaning tips we recommend:

Regular Hoovering:

Dust and debris can accumulate over time, leading to wear and tear. A routine hoover / vacuum schedule with a soft brush attachment will help prevent these issues.

Appropriate Cleaning Products:

Always use cleaners specifically designed for LVT flooring. Brands like Invictus and Project Flooring offer dedicated cleaning kits tailored to their products. Avoid abrasive cleaners like flash, as they can create micro scratches that trap dirt.

Beware of Steam Mops:

While steam mops are often a go-to tool for cleaning, they're not recommended for LVT flooring. The steam can penetrate the joints, potentially causing them to lift over time. Stick to safer cleaning methods to ensure your flooring remains in top condition.

Addressing Damage:

While LVT flooring is highly resilient, accidents and damage can happen. If a board becomes damaged and needs replacing, don't worry, it's a relatively straightforward process.
