Take the necessary precautions
Yes, you can use a steam cleaner to clean your vinyl floor – if you consider three important rules of thumb, that is. First of all, steam at half-power. That means you need a steamer with variable steam strength. Next, a proper fibre cloth is crucial, as it prevents direct contact between the steam and your vinyl floor. Finally, don’t clean too much on the same place, especially on a vinyl floor with deep bevels or grooves. That way, you keep water from seeping into the joints and damaging the subfloor.
