How Do You Deep Clean Vinyl Flooring & Remove Buildup?
Being sure you get the sides and corners, thoroughly sweep or vacuum your vinyl floors. To avoid the beater bar from rotating and causing scratches, ensure the vacuum is on the bare floor setting if you opt to use the vacuum. Grab a microfiber cloth and dampen with water to buff out scuffs that are blemishing the vinyl following the vacuuming is completed. You can use a putty knife to clear away any bulky residues such as dried gum, fresh gum, or even paint after the scuds are removed. Do not gouge the vinyl surface, so be careful as you use your tools for scraping up residues. With a little muscle and putty knife, any compacted substance that is clumped above the floor should come off fairly easy. With a baking soda paste, you can eliminate tough stains such as juice, tomato sauce, ketchup, lipstick, ink, and so on. Consider how much you need and go from there but add a little of water at a time to baking soda to create a thick paste. You will see it fade until it is gone as you a soft rag to work the paste into spot. Mop the entire floor for a deep disinfecting and removal of lingering residues once the thick clumpy debris cleared and the stains are worked out. Follow the directions on the label if you use a commercial cleaner specific for vinyl flooring. Combine 1 cup of white vinegar with one gallon of hot water and 2 or 3 drops of mild liquid dish soap if you prefer homemade concoctions. Mop the floor with the solution along with your microfiber mop. Follow up immediately with a clean dry towel to dry the lingering moisture once you have finished mopping and avoid oversaturation by wringing out the mop well before scrubbing. Drying it is very important since leaving the excess water on the vinyl could cause it to warp.
