Cleaning and maintenance instructions for residential vinyl.
Vinyl Vinyl Care and maintenance
Put felt pads underneath all the furniture to avoid scratches and marks in the vinyl. Be aware that the felt dips are worn on eg chairs.
Rubber wheels and mats with rubber backing can cause stains. Lift when moving heavy furniture. A door mat reduces the risk of dirt and scratches from sand grains etc.
Daily cleaning is done with dry or damp mopping, vacuuming or sweeping. When the housing vinyl is washed, a neutral detergent and hard-wrung cloth or mop that is not too wet are used.
Stains and heavy dirt
Stains are removed immediately, with water or neutral detergent. Be aware that vinyl is damaged by gasoline, toluene, acetone. chlorine, hydrogen peroxide and scouring powder.
