Congratulations on your new Belgotex vinyl flooring purchase! We hope you’re ready for the comfort, warmth and hassle-free lifestyle that come with it! Because Belgotex has made their vinyl floors easy to care for, which means you’ll have more time to do what you love – kick up your feet and relax! This is how easy they’ve made it for you to maintain your vinyl…
If you want to keep your vinyl flooring looking good, without having to put in that extra effort, Belgotex highlights a few simple preventative measures that will rule out damage control. Scratches are your and your vinyl floor covering’s worse nightmare. So it’s advised that furniture with broad legs be used, but if your furniture has sharp edges or legs, opt for bitumen-free protection pads as Bitumen causes indelible brown stains. And when redecorating, drag furniture across the flooring unless they’re on wheels or gliding mats.
If hubby smokes and wifey dislikes it, but hubby loves their new vinyl flooring, we rate a lovely compromise can be met. Belgotex warns that burning cigarettes and matches can damage to the vinyl…so can stiletto heels. So, hubby can leave his smoking habit outdoors and wifey can remove her shoes indoors! Happy family!
Belgotex suggests using doormats to keep dirt and dust out when people come in when protecting your vinyl flooring. They highlight, as with the protection pads, the underlay of these mats should be bitumen-free, foam-free and rubber free – the plastic composition of the latter two can migrate to the vinyl, thus, staining it. The rubber soles of some cheap shoes can also have the same affect.
With all that said and done, cleaning your Belgotex vinyl flooring should be a breeze, but here are a couple tips just in case. Vinyl is resistant to most fluids. In case of most spills a wipe with a damp cloth is usually enough. It’s corrosive substances, like acid and alkaline solutions, that should be a concern as they can damage the vinyl. Clean up any spills quickly.
