Cleaning Vinyl Floors

Luxury Vinyl Care & Maintenance

Thanks to its high durability and water resistance, luxury vinyl is exceptionally easy to keep clean and looking like new.

Basic Maintenance

Your luxury vinyl plank or sheet vinyl flooring from Mohawk is not only beautiful, but it is also highly durable and waterproof. It only takes a few simple care and maintenance steps to keep your Mohawk luxury vinyl floor looking beautiful for years to come.

When cleaning vinyl floors, use a soft bristle broom to remove loose dirt. Damp-mop as needed with clean water and a nonabrasive floor cleaner. Harsh cleaning chemicals should not be used on luxury vinyl flooring.

Mohawk luxury vinyl flooring beats the competition at heat, sun, and water resistance, so you can live more and worry less. Use these best practices for regular care and maintenance to extend the life of your floor even further.

Best practices for Preventing Damage

  • Spills should be cleaned up immediately.

  • Wash the floor with nonabrasive floor cleaner.

  • Never push, pull, or drag furniture across vinyl floors. Always lift and carry.

  • Heavy furniture or appliances that are not moved often should be equipped with flat, nonstaining floor protectors.

  • Avoid using a vacuum with a beater bar.

  • For spot stain treatment, use a diluted bleach solution that is 1 part bleach, 10 parts water.

Extra Protection

Invest in high-quality floor mats for an extra layer of protection. Place the mats at entrances and exits to collect and trap corrosive substances that can be tracked in, such as dirt, sand, oil, grit, asphalt, and even driveway sealer.
