Vinyl is easy to keep clean. It is recommended that it is brushed with a soft broom or vacuumed without a beater brush regularly to remove loose items.

Loose items like grit and gravel can be picked up on footwear and cause damage to the flooring.

Once these items are removed, mop the floor with a damp mop, using either a solution of water and bleach or a store bought cleaner.

Make sure you adhere to the solutions directions for the best results.

Stain Removal

Most everyday spillages shouldn't be a problem and can be easily cleaned.

However it is good practice to mop up spillages straightaway as some, such as oil, tomato and red wine can caused discolouration.

Vinyl flooring can also be stained from beneath, we therefore advise that the sub-floor is prepared properly prior to the installation and that silicone is applied to the egdes, especially in wet areas, to seal the edges and help stop the penetration of liquids seeping underneath.


Although vinyl flooring is durable, hard wearing and easy to clean, it is not indestructible. Some vinyl, especially cushion floor vinyl, have a pliable surface. The vinyl can feel lovely underfoot but grit and small stones brought into the home can end up indented in the vinyl.

A good door mat at the entrance can help eliminate outside dirt entering the home.

Unfortunately, vinyl flooring is not very durable against furniture and dragging heavy furniture across vinyl can scratch the surface and even tear it.

On furniture that is moved regularly, it is good practice to place self-adhesive felt pads to the feet of the furniture to help to prevent tearing.
