VINYL, the widely used term for polyvinyl chloride, is a artificial man-made material which is produced from ethylene and chlorine. It's a form of plastic. It was created being a low cost and sturdy alternative to metal, and to counter its metallic drawbacks. It's simpler to create, simpler to utilize and is fairly rust-resistant.

Whenever oxygen touches particular metals for duration of time, the following unpleasant spots on the metal is called RUST. What happens is, the metal, because of the ongoing presence of oxygen, combines with the oxygen atoms to create a distinctive compound on the surface of the metal. The substance created is called the oxide of the metal and the procedure is known as oxidation. Hence, if iron is resulting in touch with the atmospheric oxygen, the compound is called iron oxide. Likewise we have aluminum oxide and copper oxide. Water is a popular catalyst. Which in turn describes the rusting of pipes, aged park benches and the Golden Gate Bridge. And when not taken out, it won't simply appear undesirable, but will furthermore damage the metal.

•Now the concern on your mind is, if vinyl is actually a rust-free substance, where in the earth did the stains originate from? •While vinyl is rust-resistant, it is not actually protected against rust stains. •The stains might have occurred on the metal nails that you applied to repair the flooring. Or you must have placed anything metallic on the floor for a long time which has now rusted and created stains on the floor.

•Now how to start cleaning it? •It's pretty easy actually. You just need a few baking sodas, vinegar plus a wet piece of cloth. Spread a bit of baking soda on the tainted spot. Baking soda serves as an abrasive and it is utilized as a great scrubbing material to wipe up the spots. •Next, dampen the cloth in some vinegar. Vinegar possesses 30% acetic acid which is a reliable cleaner as well as deodorizer. Use the cloth soaked in vinegar and clean the stained surface with it.

•The mixture of vinegar and baking soda can help weaken the stain and steadily it will begin vanishing. Use more vinegar and baking soda if needed and do this again. And observe as the stains disappear before your eyes! Be sure to clean the region with a damp cloth to get rid of the vinegar, or else the acid will stay on your floor and harm it. Vinegar also offers a lingering odor and you would not like that in your home! •Applying vinegar and soda is definitely an efficient way of eliminating the rust from the vinyl floors. You have to prevent floor cleaners which contain chlorine because they can make the stains far worse. Don't use bleach on colored vinyl flooring too, because it may result in permanent discoloration of the floor.
