Your Cleaning Guide to Hardwood Floor and Luxury Vinyl (LVT and LVP)

Cleaning Tips for Hardwood Floor and Luxury Vinyl Flooring | Floors Plus

A clean home is a happy home, right?

With today’s focus on keeping your living spaces clean and healthy, the need for a frequent deep clean is essential. If you have a family of youngsters or a house of furry companions, you know it’s relatively impossible to keep your floors clean 24/7, despite how much you try!

Using the wrong products or approaches can damage your floors and decrease their overall performance. But – with the proper method, your brand-new flooring can maintain its high-quality standard and last for many years to come.

General tips for keeping your flooring FRESH…


  • Get in the habit of sweeping or dusting daily and vacuuming/mopping weekly.
  • Clean high-traffic areas with a Finitec microfiber mop twice each month.
  • Clean regularly with trustworthy tools like the Finitec hardwood floor cleaner!


  • Oil-based cleaners
  • Wax applied directly to hardwood floor
  • Classic citrus cleaners or those with essential oils
  • 2-in-1 products

Some cleaners contain detergents or high degrees of alkalinity that will leave an oil or soapy film on the floor surface. As this holds dirt on your floors, the layers left by the cleaner are creating a build-up over time, creating a permanent coat on your floor.

FloorsPlus Finitec Products offer a high-performing cleaning product line adapted to the different flooring options available at our warehouse. In addition to being waterborne, this line is offered with different odours and leaves no traces or residues behind.


Your floor cleaner should be a non-abrasive option that won’t leave streaks behind and is safe for your health and environment, such as Finitec cleaners.

Step 2: CLEAN or MOP with FloorsPlus Finitec microfiber
