A beautiful high gloss finish gives your floor a lovely shine and adds a distinctive quality to a room as well as often being more durable and resistant to wear or spills – especially true of laminate floors.

Gradual deterioration over time will happen – but maintaining the shine of your floor however it needn’t be as tricky task as you might think as there are ways in which you can bring that glossy appearance back to life. All it takes is a little bit of care and attention.


As with most things, regular cleaning and attention will help to maintain the quality of your possession. The same applies to your vinyl flooring. If you want the shine to remain, then try to devote yourself to a cleaning timetable. Be sure to clean your surface at least once a week, although it is highly recommended to aim for more.

Remember, unchecked dirt can gradually leave marks on the flooring, taking away some of that glossy shine.


While cleaning your floor is highly encouraged, cleaning it with harmful products can have quite an adverse effect. Always get advice on what cleaning chemicals are best for the type of flooring you have so there is no adverse reaction when you come to clean your floor.

From laminate to vinyl, you too can maintain its high gloss finish with a bit of care and attention.

    my vinyl flooring has been down about 3 years and there is marked discolouration but only on the vinyl that has been stuck down. I have two pieces that I kept for the doors and these are as the original flooring as is the bit in front of the gas fire. The flooring was laid in the winter and the gas fire would have been on so not sure if this is why this area has not discoloured. It looks awful and I would like some advice on how to restore it to the original please. All the flooring and pieces have been washed in exactly the same cleaner so this is not the cause of the discolouration.

    Thank you
