With an abundance of flooring options out there, it’s easy to see how people can easily get confused. From vinyl, laminate, carpet, hardwood, linoleum, ceramic, and even cork! It’s no wonder the choice is hard to make. Today, we’re going to explore why Vinyl flooring can be, and is an excellent choice for your home!
If you live in a high traffic household, you’re aware of the messes, the spills and the accidents that occur on a daily basis. With your busy schedule, you definitely don’t have time for that! Installing Vinyl flooring is quick and painless. First, you and a professional consult over the look that you are trying to achieve and what you’re looking for out of flooring. After the consultation, a professional comes to your home to asses your sub floor (is it clean, flat, dry & sound) and to determine the amount of product needed. If everything looks good, the next step is to install the flooring (we should mention that it doesn’t take long at all) and you’re good to go. No need to worry about a stain drying, or anything setting in, your new floor is ready to be walked all over.
While Vinyl flooring is very easy to care for (and can last anywhere from 10-30 years), there are still some things you should consider when caring for it:
- Place felt pads under all furniture to prevent scratches.
- Place a heavy duty mat at your entrances and encourage your guests to remove their shoes as residue from an asphalt driveway can turn the flooring yellow.
- Wipe spills as soon as you possibly can to keep up the appearance.
With all these amazing features, your biggest problem may be picking out the design you want. As Vinyl can imitate nearly any flooring look, this means that the possibilities for your home are endless.
