Caring For Your LVT


At Glasswells we are flooring experts, which is why we’ve created this care guide to provide you with all the necessary information on how to keep your Luxury Tile Flooring (LVT)  in top condition. Unlike a natural floor, LVT needs relatively little maintenance to keep it looking as good as new.



MAINTENANCE

 

LVT is a low maintenance product however, we would recommend dust mopping or sweeping with a soft brush day-to-day. To damp mop, use suppliers cleaning fluid (dilute as recommended on the instructions), a traditional string mop and standard wringer bucket. Work backwards to the door in an “S Shape” to mop. Rinse and wring the mop frequently.

 

Put protective pads on furniture. Place soft pads on the bottom of table and chair legs and keep an eye that they haven’t fallen off. Don’t use protectors made of metal as they can wear patches and scratch the floor.



 


 


CLEANING & PROTECTING

 

Wipe up any spillages immediately then clean using cleaner as above. Be careful when using furniture or glass polish as an overspray of silicone can make the surface slippery, as well as spillages of fats or grease.

 

New floors can be protected and older floors restored with the use of products from the suppliers you have chosen. This acts as an extra protective layer which is helpful to
make regular cleaning easier. It is designed to be stripped periodically at which time minor marks and scuffs contained within the dressing will also be removed.



 


 


HINTS & TIPS



  • We recommend only using Manufacturer Maintenance products. Other products may lead to inferior results or leave harmful residues

  • Take care to avoid staining. Blot up accidental spillages as soon as possible with a clean absorbent cloth or paper towel using a manufacturer cleaning product

  • Regularly remove dust and dirt using a dust mop

  • Use an entrance mat and an external mat to reduce the chance of dirt, grime and grit being walked onto your floor

  • Remove dry or hardened substances with a blunt scraper or plastic spatula

  • If vacuuming, dust mop first and check that nothing sharp is in contact with the floor which could get stuck under the vacuum and cause scratches

  • Use felt pads or furniture glides to protect the floor and add castor cups to spread loads and prevent indentations. 

  • Avoid contact with non-approved rubber e.g. mats or furniture bases



DO NOT USE STEAM CLEANERS


 

While steam cleaning is usually a great way of loosening up dirt, for LVT flooring it must be avoided. With steam cleaners, your LVT floor layers will become loose resulting in damage to your floor. You’ll notice this happen as the floor will begin to buckle.
