Vinyl plank flooring is affordable, and homeowners with a bit of home improvement and renovation experience can install it. It's durable and withstands many years of traffic. A regular vinyl floor cleaning routine removes dust and dry buildup. Occasionally, you'll also want to deep-clean the floor to get rid of sticky, heavy residue.
Sweep the vinyl planks regularly with a soft broom to remove dust and loose buildup.
Pour 1 gallon water and 2 tbsp. dish soap into a bucket.
Dip your mop in the bucket, squeeze out, and wipe over the vinyl planks following the direction of the planks.
Rinse the mop with clear water, and wipe over the vinyl planks to remove soap buildup. Allow to air-dry.
Discard the soapy water, and if any residue remains on your floors combine 2 tbsp. clear ammonia with 1 gallon warm water.
Dip the mop in the bucket again, squeeze out and wipe across the vinyl planks.
Rinse your mop with hot water again, and wipe over the floor to remove ammonia residue. Let the vinyl air-dry.
