Cleaning Matte Finish Vinyl Flooring?

February 13, 2016

For 2 yrs have been cleaning a wood looking vinyl floor with a matte finish with a Shark steam cleaner with great results. 2 months ago foot prints no longer will come up.


I have used vinegar and misc other products just on the prints with no luck. I would appreciate any and all suggestions to remedy this!

Don't use vinegar on the vinyl floor. It is ruining the finish and that's why you are having issues

I have another floor cleaning question regarding my new home. The vinyl flooring has a matte finish (slip resistant?). When I try to use a dust mop there is a definite dragging feel to the movement of the mop on the flooring. Is there any special product that I should use with this type of vinyl? It seems to get spotted easily and attracts heel marks. Any advice will be appreciated.

We just put in a wood laminate floor, I used Orange Glo to clean it, said great for wood floor no! Had to strip the floor. I used ammonia!


I poured it on the floor used a soft scouring pad, then I used a rubber squeegee, then washed it. Great, beautiful.
