Maintenance & Care

Cleaning Vinyl Flooring

Vinyl Flooring is tough, but all hardwood flooring is pervious to dents, scratches, discoloration or other natural or man-made damage. Prevention is a big part of the care for Vinyl floors.

General Guidelines

  • Eco Pro Planet recommends you vacuum or sweep the floor on a regular basis or as needed to remove dirt, sand or grit.
  • Soak up spills immediately using a dry towel or dry mop.
  • For general cleaning, use Bona Pro Hardwood Floor Cleaner & Bona Pro Hardwood Floor Mop.
  • Fit furniture legs with felt tips or protective caps. Fix rolling furniture with soft rubber casters. Pick up heavy furniture or appliances; do not slide.
  • Keep pets nails trimmed to avoid excess scratching.
  • Limit direct sunlight on floor by using curtains and blinds in areas that are exposed to high UV rays.
  • Maintain relative humidity between 40%-60%.
  • Never wet-mop a hardwood floor. Standing water may cause permanent damage.
  • Never use any of the following products on your floor: ammonia-based cleaners, mineral spirits, acrylic finishes, wax-based products, detergents, bleach, polishes, oil soap, abrasive cleaning soaps, or acidic materials such as vinegar. Never apply wax treatments to your floor.
  • Use interior and exterior doormats at entrances to prevent dirt and moisture from being tracked onto the floor.
  • Area rugs are also recommended in front of kitchen sinks and in high traffic areas.
  • Do not use rugs with solid rubber or vinyl backings. Rugs must be made of a breathable material to prevent moisture entrapment. We recommend using a breathable rug underlay. Mesh or grid patterns are best.
