It's not recommended to use steam mops on Vinyl Plank or Vinyl Flooring because it can warp the Vinyl if it gets too hot from the steam mop.

What I do to clean my Vinyl Plank flooring is to mix a cup of white Vinegar with a bucket of mop water and the use a sponge mop to mop the Vinyl Flooring.

The Vinegar gets the floor clean without damaging the Vinyl Planks because when I tried a steam mop it was starting to warp the Vinyl Planking and I had to replace a few Vinyl Planks.

So use either some other type of cleaner or soap in the mop water or just use Vinegar with the mop water and you can use any other type of mop that you want but I prefer the sponge mop.
