Vinyl Tile Floor Care Products

Caring for a vinyl tile floor is simple. Regular sweeping and occasional mopping using Armstrong Once 'n Done Floor Cleaner will keep your tile looking beautiful. It's important to follow the cleaning instructions: mopping with too much water can soak the tile and loosen the adhesive; abrasive cleaners can harm the tile's surface; waxing will damage vinyl tile's wear layer.

How to Install Vinyl Tile Floors

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product with Amazing Appeal Overall I was quite happy with this product from Armstrong. While I have not installed many different vinyl tiles, I can say that as a weekend warrior DIY'er I was pleasantly surprised about the ease of installation. I can not say exactly how durable these tiles are as we have only have them installed for 5 months, but they do come with a 25 year warranty - so I do feel that we made a fairly solid investment.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Experienced "shrinkage" of joints leaving gaps Bought this item with great hopes of a classy looking bathroom when I finished, but instead my floor looks like a child of 5 probably put these tiles down. Just like the guy in the other review, I followed the installation instructions to the letter, but with VERY disappointing results. After priming the floor and let dry for 12 hours, I laid the tiles, butting the joints very tightly,only to have growing gaps in the majority of the finished work,which are very obvious with this color. I even rolled each tile as it was such luck. Very disheartening given the amount of work that was involved. January 31, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Adhesive inferior -preped floor correcly and multiple tiles lifting. I've installed different brands of vinyl tiles with better results. I preped the floor per manufactuer's instructions, including sealer, and tiles are not adhering to the old floor. Seams were rolled and the tiles were at room temp. From the start, I noticed that the adhesive was not as strong as other brands. I would not use this product for future projects in our 105 year old home. December 11, 2011
