It has been stated before in other blog posts on this website, but repeating it doesn’t make it any less true: a floor can make or break the aesthetic appeal of your entire room. So it is vital that you take good care of your floor. If your floor is vinyl, it requires a bit of special care that is different to other floor types. Tile and Stone Specialists have written this blog post to outline a few tips.

General Cleaning

This s really obvious for any type of flooring really. Vacuum and clean the floor at least once a week, take care to not leave scratches on the floor.

Mats and Rugs

Use cleverly placed mats and rugs to protect part of, or most of your vinyl from harm’s way. If this is done smartly enough, your floor and thus your entire room will look sophisticated and special.

Cleaning methods

Unlike other floors, vinyl floors are a bit sensitive. You cannot expect to blast away from vinyl floor surfaces. You have to caress it away. Therefore, it will save you a lot of time and labour if you clean the floor weekly. And once a month, gently scrub the floor with a mild cleaner and a soft brush. Be careful not to use too much water because this might damage your vinyl floor. Use “no wax” agents to shine the floor.


Make sure your furniture is fitted with protection around their legs to prevent scratching your floor. Pets with long nails can also cause scratches, so ensure that your pets are well groomed.
