Vinyl flooring is a popular flooring choice for a lot of homeowners because it’s easy to clean and low maintenance. However, it can still be subject to water damage especially if you have hard water. If you have water stains on your vinyl floor, you don’t have to live with it. Instead of letting the water stains sit and make your floor look dingy, there are some ways to treat them and remove them to make your floor look great again.
Get the dirt and dust up with a good sweeping first. Starting with a clean slate is the best way to go, you don’t want to be working with pet hair and dirt at the same time you’re trying to remove a water stain.
A good cleaner is essential for dealing with water damage to your vinyl floor. Combine water and vinegar in a bowl or bucket, equal parts of each. Start by mopping or sponging the water vinegar mixture onto the stained area. Let it sit for up to 30 minutes.
Using a good floor mop or a soft sponge, scrub the stain until it starts to loosen and dissolve. Rinse the mop and repeat the same scrubbing process until the stain is gone.
Vinyl floors can last for many years and can continue to look great and be durable if they’re properly taken care of. In addition to regular stain treatment and removal, it’s important to have your vinyl floors professionally cleaned at least once a year.
