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
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.
