Luxury vinyl flooring in Gulf Breeze, FL from Gene's Floor Covering

Tips for cleaning luxury vinyl flooring

Luxury vinyl flooring is popular because little work is involved in maintaining its upscale appearance.

For a great selection of vinyl flooring in Pensacola, FL, and Gulf Breeze, FL, come to Gene's Floor Covering, where you'll find trendy wood-look planks and stone look tiles as well as cleaning products that quickly and easily remove dirt and spills.

Vinyl plank and vinyl tile flooring last 25 years or more, and with proper care, your floor will look new throughout the years.


Over time, dirt and debris can mar any floor surface, so it's best to place a doormat outside and inside doorways to make it easy to wipe your shoes. A superior doormat on your vinyl plank flooring will act as a barrier that keeps dirt and moisture from entering your home.

Coir and jute mats are very functional and attractive, and synthetic fiber mats that have a rubber backing work quite well, too.

Cleaning routine

In high-traffic areas, it's a good idea to sweep the floor daily with a house broom, dust mop, or vacuum cleaner. Then to tackle grime, dirt, or sticky messes, you should damp mop at least weekly with a microfiber or spray mop, warm water, and a vinyl floor cleaner.

You can use any mop on luxury vinyl flooring except a steam mop since the heat can damage planks and tiles, even those that are waterproof.
