Cleaning Your Luxury Vinyl Tiles

Posted by on Sep 11, 2019 in Flooring In Basingstoke, Latest News | 0 comments

Your Luxury Vinyl Tiles (LVT) are not the same as a normal wood flooring.

They are made to last, so with just a little TLC you’ll enjoy years of beauty beneath your feet.

Fortunately Amtico have created a cleaning guide, which is suitable for most luxury vinyl tiles.

Here is some advice that can be found in a PDF, which you can download here.

To get the best from your new Amtico floor you should care for it properly as soon as it has been fitted.

  • The floor should be clean, free from adhesive residues and left for at least 24 hours to allow the adhesive to dry. During this period do not wash the floor and if possible avoid replacing furniture.
  • Traces of adhesive can often be removed with the use of Amtico Stripper.
  • When replacing your furniture, lift rather than drag, and place back down with care.
  • Apply felt pads to the feet of moveable furniture such as tables and chairs to reduce the risk of scratching.
  • For particularly heavy items use furniture or castor cups to help spread the load to avoid indentation.
  • Don’t forget to protect the floor when moving heavy items such as fridge freezers and washing machines, or if other trades are working in the area, use thin sheets of hardboard or similar.
  • Use Amtico mats or other matting compatible with PVC flooring at entrances to reduce dirt and grit entering the room.
