Protecting your Vinyl Sheet floors at home will enhance the performance of your floor. Limit dirt and moisture that tracks onto the vinyl sheet floors in your home by placing absorbent doormats
at each exterior entrance. Entry door mats should have a non-staining back. Mannington recommends using latex-based driveway sealer on your driveway to reduce stains caused by asphalt tracking. Close window curtains or blinds to protect the floor from extreme sunlight. Support furniture with wide-bearing, non-staining furniture floor protector pads,
1-inch diameter or larger and non-staining. Castered chairs or equipment should have a .75-inch min width, soft caster material to not stain or dent the floor. Metal chair legs that may rust should be fitted with felt furniture pads
that will not stain the sheet vinyl flooring. Fit narrow furniture legs with wide-bearing glides to minimize floor dents and scrapes. Use plywood or felt-bottom furniture and equipment slides
on the floor when moving heavy furniture or appliances to protect the floor from scrapes and gouges, even when the item has wheels.
Vinyl Sheet floors should be swept
on a frequent basis to remove small bits of dirt that may scratch and dull the floor underfoot. Clean Vinyl Sheet floors routinely or as needed with Mannington Award Series Rinse-Free Cleaner
, proven effective - see product reviews by 1877floorguy.com customers. Dilute concentrated Rinse-Free Cleaner in accordance with label instructions. Use a bucket
and wet mop
for best results. Rinsing is optional. Allow floor to dry before use.
Keep traffic light during the first 24 hours or so, after a new vinyl sheet floor is installed, so adhesive can dry properly. If the floor has seams, avoid stepping on the seams for 24 hours so seam sealer can dry. Avoid scrubbing or washing floor for at least 3 days following floor installation. Spot clean ONLY and avoid all seams during this time.
Wipe up spills as soon as possible to avoid floor stains. Spot clean as needed with Mannington Ultra Clean
spray cleaner and a clean cloth or have ready a spray bottle filled with diluted Award Series Rinse-Free Cleaner. Mannington luxury vinyl sheet and resilient floors have strong resistance to stains. Most spills clean easily. If a stain is left behind by a spill, remove any stuck-on substances with a dull knife, being careful not to scratch the floor, then follow with spot cleaning. Use Mannington Award Series Heavy Duty Cleaner & Stripper
and a white cloth, nylon pad or stiff bristle brush depending on the severity of the stain. This process works for most stains caused by food, beverage, lipstick, tar, oil, asphalt, grease, wax, and oil-based paints. Rinse area thoroughly once stain is removed. If stain persists, use stain removal instructions on Mannington website- Vinyl Sheet Care & Maintenance pages.
