How do I care for my LVT flooring?
Luxury Vinyl Plank is emerging as one of today’s most popular flooring options. It offers a water-resistance and durability that cannot be matched. Industry experts and designers have created a broad range of styles ranging from realistic wood grains to modern and elegant shades that capture natural tones and movements. But just like everything that we love in our home, it is important to care for your new LVT properly to maintain the beauty and life of the floor.
Sweep your floor with a soft bristled broom to remove any loose dirt. Flat mop systems are ideal to remove fine dust particles that settle with use. It is important to remove fine dust particles, as they can be abrasive and damaging to the luster of your LVT flooring.
Use a floor stripper to strip vinyl, closely following the manufacturer’s instruction as the product data sheet specifies.
Completely neutralize and rinse the floor stripper using a non-abrasive floor cleaning solution.
Once the floor is completely cleaned and dried, dry buff the floor with a low speed or high speed, single disked buffing machine with a red buffing pad.
Damp mop and rinse the floor to remove any dust particles.
After the floor is completely dry it should be sealed with either a matte or high shine sealer.
What are the best flooring options for pets?
Did You Know that More Than 60% of Households Have Pets? Is your flooring going to be in a high traffic area? If you have children or pets you will probably want to choose a more durable option, such as LVT.
We know better than anyone that we love our animal friends and think of them as members of the family. But they can be tough on some types of floors. The floor in a pet-friendly home must stand up to the needs and problems common to pet-owning households. Pet owners want flooring that is moisture resistant, scratch proof and easy to clean. If it is also stain-resistant, allergen free and resists trapping odors—all the better! Of course, humans share their homes with their animals, and that means the best flooring for pets should be beautiful, stylish, and resist to fading from the sun.
Vinyl flooring is a popular flooring option for families with pets. Luxury Vinyl Planks or Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVP or LVT) is highly durable, long-lasting, and resistant to moisture, scratches and dents. This flooring type is also easy to maintain. Another benefit of vinyl is that it softens the sound of your pet’s nails when they walk across the floor. Whether you share your home with a cat, a dog or any combination of furry, feathered or scaled friends; it’s necessary to have the best pet-friendly flooring. The ENDUROMAX® luxury vinyl collections can withstand the heavy wear and tear that is common in an active, pet-friendly home. Plus, our ENDUROMAX® Collections offer all of the warmth and beauty of hardwood flooring with very low maintenance.
