Our Luxury Vinyl Plank flooring will provide years of easy care. You will find that it is not only beautiful, but durable. It is also much  easier to maintain than most other flooring products because of the tough protective finish and moisture resistance. It only takes a few simple care and maintenance steps to keep your floor looking new for years to come.

 TO KEEP YOUR FLOOR CLEAN AND BEAUTIFUL:

• Sweep or Vacuum the floor with a soft bristle broom or suitable vacuum attachment to remove loose dirt.

• Wash the floor with a non-abrasive, floor cleaner.

• For everyday maintenance, a damp mop with warm water is sufficient. Do not flood the floor.

• Do not use soap based detergents, abrasive, or “mop-and-shine” products.

• This floor does not require wax.

• Do not use bleaches (except to sanitize septic backup).

• Do not use a vacuum cleaner with a rotating beater bar.

• Ensure furniture legs have large surface, non-staining floor protectors. Replace small, narrow metal or dome-shaped glides with  smooth, flat glides that are in flat contact with the floor.

• Heavy furniture or appliances that are not moved often should be equipped with flat, non-staining composition furniture casters or cups of appropriate size.

Always read the cautionary information on all cleaners prior to use.

WARNING: NEVER push, pull or drag heavy furniture or other items across the floor. When moving furniture or heavy items, always lift and  carry the items, if possible. Otherwise, use furniture sliders available at most hardware, home improvement and discount stores, or place the item on a piece of carpet turned upside down.

WARNING: The use of latex or rubber mats may cause yellowing or discoloration.

WARNING: Some adhesive tapes use plastic migrators that can damage or discolor the surface of our flooring. For this reason, and since we have no control over the manufacturing process, we cannot warranty damage caused by their use.

WARNING: Do not use any resurfacing coating such as polyurethane or acrylics. This will void the warranty and may cause peaking
