Embark on a journey with John Jarvis Carpets, where we cherish and uphold the integrity of your floors. Vinyl flooring’s attraction lies in its fusion of beauty and strength. To keep it vibrant, here’s our Vinyl Care guide with expert tips and advice.

Vinyl Care Essentials

Your vinyl flooring is a testament to your discerning taste. To maintain its shine and prevent damage, follow these basic rules:

  1. Sweep or vacuum daily: Regular cleaning prevents dirt and grit from scratching your vinyl flooring. We advise using a soft broom or a vacuum cleaner without a beater bar.
  2. Wipe up spills promptly: Vinyl is water-resistant, but spills should still be cleaned up immediately to prevent stains or slip hazards.
  3. Use protective padding: Place felt pads under furniture legs to prevent scratching and denting your vinyl floors.

Advanced Vinyl Care

To keep your vinyl flooring looking its best, it’s necessary to delve a bit deeper:

  1. Deep clean periodically: Use a mild, pH-neutral cleaner specifically designed for vinyl floors. Avoid abrasive scrubbers and cleaners which can damage your flooring.
  2. Protect from direct sunlight: Too much sunlight can cause vinyl floors to fade. Use blinds, curtains, or UV-protective window films to mitigate this.
  3. Be cautious with heavy objects: Avoid dragging heavy furniture or appliances across the floor to prevent scratches or gouges.

Vinyl Care Myths and Facts

In this era of information, it’s easy to be misled. Stay informed and make wise decisions for your vinyl flooring. For instance, never use a steam mop on vinyl floors, it can cause warping and peeling. While wax can add shine to some floors, avoid using it on vinyl as it can build up and create a yellow discolouration.
