Why choose Vinyl Plank?

  • Vinyl Plank and Tile flooring is highly durable if installed and maintained correctly.
  • One of the most attractive characteristics of Vinyl Plank and Tile flooring is its affordability and stylish range of incredibly life-like timbered finishes in a huge array of tones and textures. There really is something for everyone when it comes to Vinyl Plank and Tile, with the look and feel of timber at a fraction of the price.
  • This makes vinyl particularly well-suited to busy households and environments that require durable flooring that doesn’t sacrifice style and ambiance.\
  • The other benefit of Vinyl Plank and Tile, especially when it comes to commercial or rental properties is that, in the event that the floor does sustain any damage, you only have to replace individual planks or tiles, not the entire floor.
  • Vinyl Plank and Tile is easy to install too so you’ll save on installation time and labor costs as well.

What is the best cleaner for vinyl flooring?


The best cleaner for vinyl flooring is a mild detergent solution. 
To make this, mix four litres of warm water with 1/4 cup of liquid dish soap or laundry detergent. 

Make sure to use a product that does not contain any bleach or ammonia as these can damage the surface of your vinyl flooring.
After mixing, use a soft mop to apply the solution and gently mop away dirt and grime from your floors. 
Once you’re done cleaning, rinse the area thoroughly with clean water and dry it off completely before walking on it again. 
With regular maintenance like this, you can keep your vinyl floors looking great for years to come!

Routine Maintenance

  1. Vacuum, sweep or mop to remove all dust and loose debris.
  2. Damp mop with a neutral detergent or scrubber dryer to clean the floor.
  3. Stubborn stains can be removed by spot cleaning with concentrated neutral detergent.

How to care for your vinyl flooring

Vinyl floors are not only stylish and simple to install, they’re also easy to care for, giving you an easy life and a healthy and hygienic home.

That’s because Tarkett has added a special surface treatment to its new generation vinyl flooring to make it even more resistant to scratches or stains as well as needing the minimum of cleaning and regular maintenance. So, to keep the floors in your home looking as good as the day you laid them, here’s what to do:

Remove dust with a broom or vacuum cleaner. This avoids build-up of dust or dirt and makes it easier to maintain your floors.

Do a once a week clean with a damp mop, like warm water and a neutral detergent. This helps to remove dirt and keep the floor in top condition. Keep in mind that you don’t need a big amount of water to clean your floor and note that light colours often need more frequent cleaning.

Helpful tips

  • Avoid dragging or sliding heavy items of furniture, carousels and point of sale across the floor.
  • Mop up spillages quickly to prevent stains.

Cleaning up stains


Treat stains immediately, for example, spot cleaning by hand with a nylon pad and neutral detergent. 
Clean from the outside of the stain towards its centre, then rinse and wipe with fresh water.

- oil, vinegar or lemon stains: remove right away as they may cause discoloration on the surface of your vinyl flooring

- ink, tomato or blood stains can be removed by putting very diluted alcohol directly on the stain for a few minutes without scrubbing, then rinse off with water

- pen and marker stains are easily cleaned by rubbing with a little white spirit on a cloth and rinsing well with water

- rust should be cleaned with an anti-rust sponge and rinsed off with water

How to Care for your Flooring 5 tips to remember:

- Place protective pads (like felt) under heavy furniture, chair and table legs

- Avoid rubber bottoms on objects resting on your vinyl floor – it may cause staining.

- Use doormats at entrance ways to prevent dirt or dust from being brought inside and make cleaning easier. About 80% of dirt can be stopped there!

- Clean your floors with natural, soft or neutral detergents

- Keep hot items like heaters, ashes or coals at a safe distance/height from your vinyl floor

Don't clean vinyl floors with:

Abrasive powders, black soap, acetone or solvents, wax or varnish, oil-based products, steam cleaners
