Waterproof Luxury Vinyl Care & Maintenance

Waterproof luxury vinyl is the perfect flooring solution for busy families. It is scuff- and dent-resistant as well as waterproof, and it withstands heavy traffic with ease. However, it still requires some basic care! Learn more below.

Daily Care tips

For daily upkeep, we recommend sweeping and vacuuming as often as is needed. You should also place all heavy furniture on protective mats and take care when moving it across your flooring. Consider investing in doormats and place them strategically around your home to keep dirt off of your flooring.

You can also wet mop your luxury vinyl flooring, although you should be sure to dry it immediately afterward.


What to do

(and what not to do)

DO sweep and vacuum frequently. Use your vacuum's attachments to get into edges and crevices.

DON'T use a vacuum with a beater bar, as this can scratch the surface of your vinyl.

DO mop with warm water as needed. DON'T forget to dry your flooring afterward.

DO use a manufacturer-approved cleaning product as needed.

DON'T let spills sit! Always wipe them away as quickly as possible.

“Really pleased with Carpet Mart's service. We put new carpet in 3 rooms in our upstairs. Our house is pretty tight on space and the crew that came in to do the work was so quick and professional. I was thinking they would be working all day, but they were in and out in less than 4 hours and everything looked fantastic. So happy and I would highly recommend their service.”

"We recently had new carpet installed, hardwood flooring in the living and dining room and linoleum flooring put down in the kitchen. My wife and I think the two different crews installing all of this did an outstanding job. We were very pleased with the help we received from our salesman Drue. He helped each time my wife changed her mind on what type of flooring to put down in each room. We strongly recommend Carpet Mart and they also had the lowest prices of all the places we visited."
