Maintaining Vinyl Floor Shine

A friend of mine had someone clean their vinyl with who knows what and it took the shine completely off. That is what prompted this video.  Most vinyl floors have a no-wax surface, this means that the floor has a vinyl or polyurethane finish which is very durable and maintains its shine without regular waxing. Furthermore, solvent-based waxes and cleaning products can ruin vinyl flooring.  As floors wear over time, they naturally lose some of their original shine, even no-wax vinyl floors. Daily sweeping, weekly mopping, and monthly application of water-based PH Neutral cleaners and polishes keep vinyl floors looking their best.  If you have a vinyl floor, you may find that over time it loses its shine. We'll show you how to get that shine back and to keep it.


Products to Maintain Vinyl Floor Shine

I am sure you found the maintaining Vinyl Floor shine video useful.  If you still have questions please contact Aunt Patti on the left side of the page.  As you watched my video, you will have noticed that we used a variety of Vinyl Foor cleaning products.  All of these products are readily available and although you can usually find these products anywhere online I generally get them at the Cleaning Solutions Superstore.


The Neutral PH Vinyl Floor Cleaner shown in the video does a wonderful job of getting your floor clean and maintaining shine with a peasant aroma.
