Allure vinyl planking..
Shari on Jun 26, 2014This is good to know, Bernice. I have had Allure in one of my bathrooms for 3 1/2 years. I actually haven't had any problems with scuffs since I'm usually barefoot in the bathroom and I kind of like the matte finish of it. However, I'd eventually like to put Allure down in some other parts of my house that would get heavier "shoe traffic" and be more prone to scuffing and, who knows... I might not like the matte finish so much in those rooms of my house that have better lighting. Can you provide the name of this product you used? Also, please be sure to keep us updated on how it holds up and how often you are having to apply it. Thanks!Helpful Reply
Bernice H on Jun 27, 2014Hi Shari..It is 'Allure Single step cleaner and polish'. Home Depot sells it as it sells the Allure vinyl planking. Different vinyl planking manufacturers evidently have their own product, so I didn't want to vary and thereby bring my warranty into question if I ever had to. I just searched for "how to clean allure vinyl planking.." lots of info. And there are always naysayers. However I found this to be much easier to apply than i had expected. I just cleaned the floor very very well, and folded some toweling on my mop head and dampened the towel mop and did the S thing on the floor with the cleaner, then mopped . Did a smallish section at a time.Waited for about 40 minutes to let it dry and harden then did another coat and waited again. I finally threw down the throw carpets a few hours later so I could be sure it is hard and dry.A nice glossy shine to it, not real shiny, but just glossy and clean looking. There are 2 kinds, but I wanted the glossy. I am sure it will be easier to keep clean now too. I will have to read the comments on the sites to see how often folks are reapplying it. but I can figure to do it whenever I feel it is getting dull again. We do not wear shoes in the house. So do you have wood look in your bathroom????Helpful Reply
