Solid vinyl flooring has many benefits and is ideal for a home environment.
With solid vinyl flooring you can recreate the look of natural stone, hardwood or any other material you can think of, you can even mix and match materials to make it look like you’ve combined different elements in your floor, or in your bathroom, kitchen or laundry room as it is almost impervious to water penetration making this material perfect for a variety of uses.
Moreover it requires low maintenance as it is relatively easy to care for, all you have to do is make sure that grit and dirt are kept swept free to maintain the surface of the floor. After you’ve done that there is not much more for you to do, just use a damp mop and an approved vinyl floor cleaner for maintenance.
Some vinyl sheets and tiles have a padded layer that can make walking on these floors even more comfortable. Vinyl floor tiles are good as anti-slip flooring since they incorporate a slip-retardant technology which also maintains the static. The extensive application of vinyl in health-care facilities is testimony to the improved sanitary capability of vinyl. The floor also does not hold and release allergens.
Since the flooring is provided as a handy-sized unit, it is easy to transport and install. Tiles are applied to a level sub-base with or without vinyl adhesive. Some tiles have an adhesive layer with which they are fixed to the floor. They can also be installed on ceramic, concrete and wood floors. If installed correctly, the tiles can also allow localized damage repair and replacement which can be very useful.
Last but not the least, vinyl flooring is affordable. At the low range vinyl can cost as little as fifty cents per square foot and in its highest can cost $10 per square foot. However the difference in price is determined by the quality of the tile and the design options found in the surface.
