By February 27, 2013

Follow me on:

Linoleum flooring is tough and resilient, but it isn't impervious, and some care will have to be taken when cleaning it. Unlike vinyl, harsh chemical cleansers and acidic cleaning agents can eat into the surface wear layer of a linoleum floor, causing dulling and discoloration.

There are several acceptable methods for cleaning a linoleum floor, including the use of diluted dish soap, applied with a mop or brush. Those concerned about using natural products may prefer vinegar, or even baking soda as a quick, on hand way to clean a linoleum installation.
