1. Keep the Dirt Off the Floor

One way to maintain the floor is to stay ahead of the game. Instead of letting dirt build up like most people have the habit of doing, you want to instead try your best to keep the dirt off in general, such as leaving shoes at the door and eating in a separate room. Basically, do anything you can to keep the dirt off!

2. Use the Right Products

Remember when we said that there’s a misconception over how many steps there are in cleaning Vinyl flooring? Well, there’s a little bit of truth to that in the way that you can’t just use any cleaning product. Some will do more harm than good.
