Mannington Sheet Vinyl Flooring, including Sobella Fiberglass Sheet Vinyl, requires initial and routine maintenance to keep them looking like new. Initial Maintenance includes keeping traffic light during the first 24 hours and avoiding stepping on seams for 24 hours. Wait a minimum of three (3) days following installation before scrubbing or washing floor. During this time, spot clean as needed avoiding all seams. For Routine Maintenance, sweep or vacuum with a soft brush head and no beater bar to remove loose dirt and debris. Promptly wipe up spills. Mop, as needed, with Mannington Award Series® Rinse-Free Cleaner diluted according to instructions. Rinsing is not required but will provide the best results.
Luxury vinyl sheet floors have a low-gloss sheen and do not require polish however if a high-gloss finish is desired, it can be achieved with Mannington Award Series® High-Gloss Polish. Periodic use of Mannington Award Series® Heavy Duty Cleaner and Stripper may be needed for polish removal or severe dirt build-up.
Do not use more than the recommended amount of cleaning solution and do not use soap or detergent products as any of these will leave a dulling film on your floor. Do not use wax. Do not buff. If stripping is required, floor will be slippery during and after the process until finish is reapplied and dry.
Protect floors with masonite or other hard boards when moving heavy furniture or appliances. Use wide-bearing, non-staining floor protectors on furniture. Use non-staining doormats at exterior entrances to prevent loose dirt and debris, as well as asphalt and driveway sealer, from tracking inside.
