Getting Low Maintenance Floors
Getting Low Maintenance Floors
There are options available to you when it comes to low-maintenance flooring and ways that you can prevent damage to flooring which require a little more TLC.
Vinyl flooring is probably the easiest to clean out of all the options listed here and also one of the easiest to maintain. Also known as Cushion Floor, vinyl flooring is available at a good price and can take plenty of wear over the years, which is why many will come with a fifteen year warranty. Many people have misconceptions about vinyl flooring being old and outdated, but today’s vinyl flooring comes in a variety of different styles and options from the very basic to more expensive, luxury options. You may even find that you can purchase a very realistic imitation of a different type of flooring at just a fraction of the price. So don’t write it off before doing some proper investigation.
In terms of cleaning ease, vinyl tends to have a protective layer which acts as a barrier to stains and spills. So, if you’re concerned that your flooring might get quite dirty then vinyl may be a good option for you. It can also add some further protection against scratches, which may be helpful if you have pets. If your vinyl flooring doesn’t have this protective layer then you might need to give it a good clean and polish every once and a while to keep it at its best. As for general day to day cleaning, it really doesn’t get much easier than this. To clean your vinyl you simply need to give it a sweep with a brush and then run a mop over it.
Laminate flooring is another good choice for people who want something that imitates wood but is more durable, lower maintenance and more cost effective than solid wood flooring. Laminate is an excellent choice that is made up of a HDF or MDF backing which provides strength, a photograph layer which imitates style or design and then a protective wear layer which makes it durable against scratches. There is lots of variation available with laminate flooring and you may find that the prices can vary dramatically. However, while it is possible to get laminate flooring for a cheap price, it’s rarely a good option to do so. More affordable brands of laminate flooring tend to be of a lower quality which look less realistic and are not as tough and durable as a good quality laminate. The best laminate flooring will come with a 20 year warrantee which is testament to how confident the manufacturer is of its durability. As for the day to day cleaning of laminate flooring, it is similar to vinyl flooring in that you just need to give it a vacuum and a mop. Again, be careful about how much water you use on laminate flooring – it should be able to dry up again within just a couple of minutes of mopping.
