How to Clean & Maintain Amtico Flooring

Written by: Yarl Christie

Looking to get the most out of your new Amtico floor? Constructed with high-quality vinyl, Amtico floors are some of the most luxurious on the market.

The floors provide exceptional durability and impressive realistic effects. One of the best things about them, is how easy they are to maintain. The manufacturer has their own cleaning and maintenance guide for each of its products. Here, we’ll look at some of the top tips the brand has shared for cleaning and caring for Amtico flooring.

Protecting the surface from dents and scratches

Amtico floors are naturally tough against dents and scratches thanks to a unique surface coating. However, things like heavy furniture and high heels can still damage your new floor.

If you are looking to keep your Amtico floor free from dents and scratches, there are a couple of tips you should follow. The first is to use protective felt feet on heavy furniture legs. This will prevent the floor from being scratched if the furniture is moved. It also helps to prevent against dents which may develop over time.

You can also spread heavy furniture around the room, ensuring weight is evenly distributed. Of course, avoiding walking over the floor in high heels is also a good tip to follow.

Eliminating dirt and dust

You will find Amtico floors are a breeze to keep clean. To keep dirt and dust at bay, remember to sweep the floor regularly. Alternatively, you could give it a daily vacuum to ensure dirt and dust is fully picked up, rather than just moved across the floor.

We also recommend using entrance mats to reduce the amount of dirt and dust trailed across the floor.

Mop the floor regularly

Alongside vacuuming or sweeping the floor daily, you should also aim to mop the floor regularly. Once a week is typically enough, depending upon how much foot traffic the floor is exposed to.

For best results, invest in the Amtico Floorcare maintainer. This is designed specifically for Amtico flooring.

Deep clean it once a year

The final step to keeping your Amtico floor looking like new, is to give it a deep clean once a year. The manufacturer has created a deep cleaning solution you can use to give the floor a brand-new look.

First, use the Floorcare Stripper to remove deeply ingrained dirt. This will need to be left on for 10 minutes before being rinsed off twice. After the floor has dried, you can then use the brand’s Floorcare Dressing, giving it a beautiful fresh look.
