In the luxury vinyl flooring line, you will find both plank and tile options, which offer extensive benefits and characteristics. But many homeowners ask lots of questions about cleaning, which is essential information.
If you’re wondering if you can clean these floors with a steam cleaner, the answer is no. Even manufacturers warn against this, so here are some facts to explain.
Luxury vinyl flooring is completely waterproof
One of the things you'll love most about these floors is that they are 100% waterproof. That means you never have to worry about water damage in damp, humid areas when you have vinyl plank flooring.
But it’s not the water you have to worry about when it comes to steam cleaning. These machines function with extensive pressure and heat, and both can damage your luxury vinyl flooring.
Even manufacturers warn against using any steam-cleaning appliance. And damage your floors take on as a result will not be covered by the manufacturer’s warranty.
What can you do instead?
Most floors see great results from a broom and damp mop, especially in light-traffic areas. But if you find yourself with a tougher mess, consider a recommended LVP flooring cleaner with cleaning tools that don’t scratch.
