Commercial vinyl floors come in many styles and designs these days. Vinyl flooring is a great choice for many commercial buildings and businesses. It’s water-resistant, durable, and comes in many stylish looks to provide a professional appearance overall. Plus, when it comes to easy upkeep for flooring, you can’t beat how easy it is to clean vinyl floors. Thankfully, vinyl flooring doesn’t usually require much specialized cleaning to make it look its best or hold up over time, though we do want to talk about some simple steps to clean vinyl flooring.
How to Clean Vinyl Flooring
Like we said, keeping your vinyl flooring clean doesn’t have to be difficult. Tending to this type of flooring should be done on a regular basis like the rest of your floors. Sometimes just a dry mop to dust and pick up debris is all that is needed. If your vinyl floors are extra dirty, a mild soap or cleaning solution will clean up those vinyl floors easily and gently.
When your floors see a lot of traffic or accumulate dirt and moisture during bad weather seasons, more cleaning will be necessary. After dry mop sweeping, a simple solution specifically for vinyl floor cleaning is a good option for cleaning. While you can create your own solution with vinegar and alcohol, we don’t recommend this as the formula needs to be specific in ratios to prevent harm to your flooring. Specialized formulas created for hard and vinyl flooring get it right each time and provide a safe and consistent clean.
How to Deep Clean Vinyl Floors
When it’s time to deep clean your vinyl flooring, simply start with a dry microfiber mop and go over the surface to accumulate dust and dirt left from the workday. From here, you will want to get the mop head a little damp so it glides over the flooring easily. Spray on the vinyl floor cleaner a little at a time and mop up the area well. Continue to do this until you’ve passed over all of the vinyl flooring.
If your floors see a lot of spills and food, or outside dirt tracked in, it’s best to start with cleaning vinyl flooring as noted above. From here, you can use the same cleaning spray to soak the areas that need more attention and rub the flooring with the mop. If necessary, a rag and some elbow grease should aid with cleaning areas that are especially dirty.
How to Make Vinyl Floors Shine All The Time
Taking the time to clean your floors on a regular basis, cleaning up spills, and putting down rugs in areas that see a lot of foot traffic will go a long way to keeping your vinyl floors looking great for a long time. Keeping cleaning supplies nearby is also a good option to aid staff in cleaning up flooring quickly. A mop with floor cleaning spray, rags, and paper towels will encourage your team to address messes that pop up during the day. And finally, a cleaning routine and maintenance schedule is one of the best ways to keep your floors shining nicely and continue to make your work space look professional.
