How to Clean Congoleum Flooring


Congoleum is a durable vinyl flooring that is both affordable and functional. For the most part, the Congoleum flooring will sustain itself, however, you will need to incorporate a very regular cleaning routine that collects dirt as it accumulates. A dropped piece of hard candy or a pebble that was tracked onto the floors by someone's shoes can quickly cause an unrepairable scratch on the flooring, making it important to clean the floors regularly.

Things You'll Need

  • Bucket
  • Water
  • Vinegar
  • Mop
  • Vacuum
  • Clean the floors 1 to 2 times per week with a vacuum cleaner to collect pieces of debris.

  • Damp mop the floors at least once per week to remove sticky residue and light soil. Moisten the mop with warm tap water, wring out and wipe over the floors.

  • Pour 1 gallon warm water and 1 cup white vinegar into a cleaning bucket.

  • Dip a mop into the cleaning solution, and wring out the mop. Wipe the damp mop over the Congoleum flooring to clean and disinfect the flooring without leaving behind residue or film.
