SPC vinyl flooring

Sweep and vacuum the floor regularly. Use a vacuum designed for hard surfaces (if vacuum has a beater bar, it should be turned off).

Wipe off any spills with clean water and a damp (not wet) mop. Use a dry mop to remove surplus water and then allow to dry.

Do not use polishes, waxes, abrasive or ammonia-based cleaners. The surface is dense and non-porous which prevents cleaners from penetrating and this can build up a residue on the surface which will collect dirt. Please check any new cleaning agent on a small test patch of the floor in an inconspicuous area.

Avoid exposure to direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time. During peak sunlight hours, use drapes or blinds to minimize the direct sunlight on the vinyl flooring. Most types of flooring will be affected by continuous strong sunlight. In addition, excessive temperatures are not good for resilient floors. Long term continuous inside temperatures over 35C combined with strong direct sunlight can damage the flooring and cause the installation to fail.

If your floor has been exposed to excessive amounts of water due to flooding, do not panic, SPC planks are waterproof. Simply remove the water as quickly as possible. A dehumidifier should be promptly turned on in the room to reduce moisture level back to normal. Do not dry the room below the normal moisture level that existed previously.

If scuff marks cannot be removed using a damp rag, stubborn scuffs can be removed by the use of a tennis ball or pencil eraser. Gently rub in long direction of plank.

Shoes with heels can damage this floor. Use protectors or pads under furniture legs. Place mats at the main access entrances to protect your floor from debris accumulated on the soles of shoes. Pets with long nails can cause damage to your floor.
