Can I steam clean my vinyl floor?

The short answer is no for flex vinyl, since intense temperatures can make the LVT unstable. For Alpha Vinyl it depends on the device you’re using, the quality of the steam, the heat and steam distribution pattern, etc. So it must always be used with an appropriate cloth on the steam opening, which guarantees also an homogeneous heat and steam distribution.

It is also important to take care to hold the apparatus not too long on the same area of flooring.

Next to that it is important to not stay too long on the joints, and clean the floor in the length direction of the planks.
