It’s all about timing
Water-resistant vinyl floors — like our LURF® Quick-Step, are treated to withstand water ingress to a certain extent. Basically, this means your floor can come into contact with water for hours or even days on end, without getting damaged.
However, frequency is key to determining how much is too much. If your vinyl floor is repeatedly exposed to excessive amounts of water — for instance, in an open shower — its joints and edges won’t be able to take it, possibly damaging your floor and underfloor. This is also why we usually advise against overlaying vinyl in your toilet.
Wet cleaning? Check!
It’s important that moisture doesn’t penetrate underneath the vinyl floor covering. Does that mean you can’t clean it with water? Of course not! Just make sure your mop is not soaking wet. Slightly moist does the trick.

Thanks to its strong surface layer, vinyl is also an ideal flooring choice for kitchen. As long as you don’t use it as a swimming pool floor, your LURF® vinyl will be fine!
