A variety of reasons cause a vinyl floor to stain or discolor:
•Spills are one of the most common causes. To avoid a spill that

Keeping the room shaded during times of the day when the sun is
the strongest can avoid discoloration from the sun. Keep heating

floor to discolor as well. Remove shoes before walking on the floor.
