Extra protection for your LVT flooring

When it comes to floorcare the wisdom of “prevention is better than the cure” rings true. Consider these proactive measures to safeguard and enhance the longevity of your flooring from damage.

  • Protect your flooring against potential damage from both moving and stationary furniture by equipping them with foot-gliders or felt pads. This simple step ensures protection, and preserves the pristine condition of your floors over time.
  • Elevate your entranceway with a doormat, particularly a PVC-free Hug Rug doormat. These not only remove debris but also shield your LVT flooring from potential discoloration caused by plasticiser migration.
  • Swiftly deal with spills to prevent stubborn stains from setting in.
  • Avoid any contact with products that contain bleach or other similar harsh chemicals.
  • Steer clear of steam mops, their intense heat can compromise the resilience of your flooring.

With the perfect blend of routine care, periodic revival, and proactive precautions, your J2 Flooring is guaranteed to look great for years to come. For more information on cleaning your J2 Flooring take a look at the Dr Schutz floor maintenance guide.
