Why You Should Consider Vinyl Flooring for Your Home or Commercial Property

Rolls of vinyl flooring sheetsVinyl flooring products have received bad press in recent years, mainly because of its being made from petroleum and its perceived low quality compared to other flooring options like hardwood and natural stone.

Nowadays, however, vinyl flooring products are considered great alternatives to other types of flooring materials. Here’s why: 

  • Affordable – Their low price point is probably the most obvious benefit of vinyl flooring products.
  • Recyclable – Polyvinyl chloride (PVC), from which vinyl flooring is made, is recyclable. It is actually one of the most commonly recycled synthetic materials. It has the longest history of recycling among all types of plastics because it is favored by many industries for its durable characteristics.
  • Strong and long-lasting – Most products made from PVC — vinyl flooring included — last for more than 15 years. The longevity of the product, however, depends on many things, including how the flooring product was manufactured and how you take care of it.
  • Available in stain-resistant varieties – Many vinyl flooring products have a clear wear layer that protects the inner layer from stains and spills.
  • Wide array of choices – Vinyl flooring is available in hundreds of different styles and colors, with some designs even mimicking the look of high-end flooring products. Vinyl is also available in sheet or tile form. The advantage of tile vinyl flooring is that you’ll be able to replace the tiles individually when they get scratched or gouged accidentally. Compared to sheets, tiles are also easier to install, especially if they have adhesive backing.
  • Hygienic and easy to maintain – Vinyl flooring is very easy to clean and is not permeable to moisture. Mold won’t be able to grow on it.
  • Comfortable – Vinyl flooring does not get as cold as stone flooring during the winter months. They are also not as hard as natural stone or wood, making them more comfortable on the foot for some people.
