This is a sponsored post for Provenza Floors.  All opinions are my own.

It’s been about a year since we had our Provenza Vinyl Flooring installed, and I still love it so much!  I wanted to give you an update, take you on a little video tour of my home, and show you specifically how to clean vinyl plank flooring.  You’ll want to keep reading because I’m also doing a GIVEAWAY of Provenza FloorCare All Purpose Cleaner.  It’s great for polyurethane, laminate, and LVP cleaning and maintenance.  This all purpose cleaner preserves the original finish and leaves no residue.  Very important to keep your floor looking great!

How to Clean Vinyl Plank Flooring

Supplies Needed:

Step 1: Sweep or vacuum floor to remove any debris.  If you want to vacuum, use one that you can disable the beater bar on, so you don’t scratch the floor.

Step 2: Shake cleaner before using and spray on a section floor.

Step 3: Wipe with a damp, microfiber mop.

Step 4: Occasionally rinse mop head in clean water and wring so it is only damp (not dripping wet).  Continue to spray and mop more sections until entire floor is done.

I love your floor! This was such a help in my decision. We purchased Provenza Finally Mine, I hope it looks as nice as your house! My question for now is What is the brand name of the felt pads that you used on your furniture? And how long does a bottle of the floor cleaner last? Thank You!

@Jessica @ Cutesy Crafts, Thank You! Ordered them a few minutes ago, along with a 32oz bottle of the Provenza General Purpose cleaner from Amazon. I hate cleaning the floors too, too much stuff to work around LOL

This post has links to the nail in felt pads. They are the best! Not sure how long the floor cleaner lasts. I have house cleaners now, and before that I was horrible at mopping on a regular basis (hence the need for house cleaners. Haha!)

It's so pretty! I smiled when you mentioned ice on the floor. My kids do that EVERY day! I can't wait to get LVP installed!

Hi great video! Is it ok to use Bona quick cleaner on LVP flooring?

You can use the Bona cleaner that says it's for vinyl flooring.

Can you use a disinfectant on the floor around the toilet in the bathroom? Will the chemicals in Lysol harm the floor? Can you use a steam cleaner on the floor in the bathroom or in the kitchen near the stove for grease, splatter?

You can't use harsh chemicals or steam. The care instructions say only ph neutral cleaners can be used.

Thank you so much Jessica, for your informative video and pictures! We also have decided to replace carpet, tile and hardwood areas into one surface with Provenza lvp. I'm specifically interested in how the bullnose on your steps are holding up. We have a few steps that lead up from the front entry to a landing area and then a few more that lead up to the living area. We had an installer come to give us a bid and he was concerned about the bullnose not being big enough and possibly breaking off or coming away from the plank its clicked into. Did you have the bullnose part glued down? Any problems? From what I can tell, yours look beautiful! Haha sorry for the novel! Thank you for any info you can pass along.

I haven't had any problems with it at all. I didn't watch the installer work, but I know I saw some kind of glue gun at some point. I'm looking at it, and I also see a few teeny tiny nail holes that look like they are from a nail gun. I never noticed them before, you can barely see them when you are up very close. I think he put the bullnose on before the other planks. Sorry I can't be more help than that. I'd get a couple opinions from different installers.
