When it comes to tough flooring, you can’t go wrong with vinyl.
Vinyl is a durable, practical flooring that can take a whole lot of punishment while still helping your home look gorgeous!
Having said that, vinyl flooring isn’t invincible, and you need to do your part to make sure you’re keeping it in its best condition.
This article will walk you through the best way to mop your vinyl floor!
Always start your mopping procedure by vacuuming, dusting and sweeping your floor.
Mopping helps take care of the surface of your vinyl floor, but it won’t remove any dust or debris. Instead it will just wetten it and as a result it will stick to your floor. That’s the opposite to what we’re going for!
Don’t leave any spills on the floor until you are next planning to mop! Spot clean messes as they happen and your floor will look much better for longer.
Vinyl is a fairly easy-going floor, and most often just mopping with clean water will do the job.
However, when you really want to give your floors a deep clean, we recommend apple cider vinegar. Mix a gallon of hot water with a cup of apple cider vinegar to create a potent solution that grease won't be able to stand up to!
If you’d like to disinfect your floors while you mop, you can always substitute white vinegar for the apple cider vinegar, or just add a few drops of detergent or dish soap to your mixture.
When it comes to adding that glossy sheen to our floors to make them look new, we recommend baby oil. Just add a few drops to your water and vinegar solution to leave a very attractive sheen in the wake of your cleaning.
Your average mop will have a lot of trouble when it comes to scuffs and stains.
Because mop tops are often very soft, they’re not effective when it comes to removing marks from your floor.
As we mentioned earlier, spot-cleaning is vital when it comes to vinyl floors. Sometimes you will need to get down on your hands and knees with a towel and some WD40!
As you can see, mopping your floors takes a lot of time and a lot of patience. From sweeping to spot-cleaning to the actual mopping, the hours can easily slide away.
