Which cleaning products are safe to use on luxury vinyl floors?
Manufacturers will recommend cleaning products safe to use on their luxury vinyl floors. In general, do not harsh detergents, abrasive cleaners or “mop and shine” products. Never use paste wax or solvent-based polishes on your luxury vinyl floor.
Can I install luxury vinyl flooring over an existing floor?
No. Any existing resilient flooring must be removed before any new luxury vinyl flooring is installed.
Why is luxury vinyl flooring a good choice?
For one, luxury vinyl flooring offers more options when it comes to styles and patterns. It also provides added durability and longevity, meaning costs for repairs or replacement will be less likely in the future. You should ask yourself how long you plan to live in your current home. If at least 5 years, luxury vinyl will maintain its looks when it’s time to sell, returning value while saving you replacement costs.
Do I need to wax my luxury vinyl floor to keep it glowing?
No, the beauty of luxury vinyl is that it’s virtually maintenance free. Thanks to tough coatings that resisting fading, staining and dulling, your floor can keep its new look for many years with proper care.
How do I determine how much flooring is needed for a room?
Calculating how much vinyl flooring you’ll need for a project is easy. First, determine the total square footage of a room by multiplying the length and width of the floor. Add 5-10% to this number for waste due to additional cuts. Add more if your room has a lot of angles and corners. Next, look at how many square feet are in each box of vinyl flooring. Divide the total square footage of flooring you’ll need by the number of square feet in each box. This will tell you how many boxes you’ll need.
