Luxury vinyl tile flooring in Leesburg, FL from DCO Flooring

Is steam cleaning a good idea for luxury vinyl tile flooring?

An easy-to-clean surface is one of the hallmarks of luxury vinyl flooring, which you can keep clean with a damp microfiber mop and mild detergent.

DCO Flooring carries luxury vinyl liquid cleaners, and our flooring specialists can answer any questions you might have about keeping your floors looking their best. And if those floors need an upgrade, you can find a wide variety of high-quality luxury vinyl styles in our showroom in Leesburg, FL.


LVT flooring
comprises four layers: wear, image, core, and backing. A high-pressure stream from a steam mop forces moisture between the layers of the floor.

Further, steam mops heat water to more than 200 degrees Fahrenheit. Both the moisture and the high heat can cause damage to the floor.

Core and more

The core layer makes up the bulk of the tile, and if the brand is waterproof, this core will even tolerate standing water.

In other words, luxury vinyl flooring is tough, especially the wear layer that protects the wood, stone, concrete, or ceramic image layer from stains and scratches. But in a nutshell, luxury vinyl tile is not designed for steam cleaning.

Effective cleaning

To ensure your tile floor shows off a like-new look for years to come, remove dirt and debris daily with a soft household broom or a vacuum cleaner.

A 'quick sweep' will do; if you place a doormat inside and outside entryways, your job will be even easier. Choose a synthetic mat that has a natural rubber backing or natural fiber-like coir.
