Since being invented back in the 1930s vinyl flooring has grown into one of the most popular options for floor installations globally. In fact, it has even managed to surpass linoleum in many settings as the preferred low-cost, water resistant flooring choice.
What has made this material so popular though? Let’s find out:
1. Aesthetic realism
The variety of vinyl flooring types and brands today is astounding, but more impressive than all the choices available is the advancement in realism. While it has been possible for many years to install vinyl that looks like natural materials, it is now also possible to get the feel of those materials too.
If you want to feel the grain of natural stone or wood underfoot, all you need to do is ask for it.
2. Water resistance
Water damage is the bane of most natural flooring materials, especially wood. Moisture causes these materials to stain, rot and swell, leaving rather expensive messes. But one of the most highly recommended features of vinyl flooring is that it is completely waterproof.
By having flooring installers come in and install this professionally, you are guaranteed the peace of mind that no matter how much spillage happens your floor is safe. This quality makes vinyl flooring absolutely perfect for kitchens and bathrooms.
Adding to the benefit of water resistance, these floors are also extremely easy to clean. Combined with our vinyl flooring installers ensuring that the seams are minimal and properly sealed, these floors can handle most cleaning chemicals without risk. So if there is a spill you can just whip up some disinfectant mixture, mop the floor, and when you dry it up everything will be good as new.
Vinyl is resistant to more than just cleaning chemicals though. While it doesn’t do too well with sharp objects (so be careful with falling knives in the kitchen) it holds up exceptionally well against stains and foot-traffic. If you have it installed properly and keep it clean, this floor could easily last for up to 20 years!
We all want comfort. When you hire the services of our vinyl flooring installers it isn’t just to give you something that looks pretty, but also something that will enable you to enjoy your home even more. And due to the softness of vinyl underfoot this is exactly what you get, along with the added benefit of quieter footfalls when your kids and pets are running around (which could help with those Sunday afternoon naps).
