Use highly-abrasive scrubbers
Abrasive sponges, steel wool, and other rough materials can easily scratch — and even eat through — the protective coating atop your vinyl plank flooring. Use a mop or soft bristled brush if you need a deep, scrub-a-licious clean!
Ammonia and vinyl plank flooring’s synthetic coating do not mix well — the ammonia breaks down the finish and causes damage to the flooring. Try one of the easier-going natural cleaning solutions or the gentle tools mentioned previously.
Use paste wax or solvent-based polishes
Because vinyl plank flooring is coated in a special polyurethane coating that protects it, it never needs waxing — and, in fact, waxes and solvent-based polishes you might use on other flooring surfaces can damage the topcoat and leave your floor with dull buildup.
