Vinyl is a fairly popular flooring material due to its relative durability and affordability. However, problems can arise at the cleaning stage. Vinyl should not be cleaned with aggressive solutions such as ammonia and bleach, as these substances can seriously damage the delicate material.

Abrasive products that damage the tiles and cause them to become dull are also prohibited. House Digest experts told us how to shine a vinyl floor.

An affordable and effective ingredient

Distilled white vinegar is the most effective vinyl floor cleaner, providing the perfect balance of safe and high-quality cleaning. The vinegar is acidic enough to remove dirt that has accumulated on the surfaces, but it will not harm the synthetic composition of the floor.

Step-by-step instructions

Cleaning vinyl floors is extremely easy; all you need is a large bucket, white vinegar, warm water, and a mop (preferably made of microfiber).

  1. The first step is to sweep or mop the floor with a dry mop to remove any debris that might scratch the material.
  2. Mix 1 cup of white vinegar and 3 liters of warm water and mop the floor. Although vinyl is resistant to water, an acidic liquid that stays on it for a long time can damage the material. Therefore, in the end, mop the floor again with warm, clean water.
  3. The vinegar mixture will easily remove dirt, but you can get a more powerful cleaning effect by adding a few drops of liquid dish soap.

Often, the floor gets dirty the next day, and you can only dream of shine and cleanliness. Cleaning experts recommend using the Italian method of floor cleaning. The secret is to pay attention to the details.
