Luxury Vinyl Tile
We all want the floors in our home to look great, but installing a new floor or replacing an old one is expensive so you want a floor that will last a long time. If you have a busy home with pets, kids and plenty of entertaining then you need a hard-wearing floor that can stand up to high traffic. If you are preparing a property for rental, you want a tough floor that you can install and forget about. And if you are on a budget, you’ll want to know that your investment has longevity.
In all these instances, we want to know how durable the floor is; that is how it will withstand wear, pressure, or damage. In this post we’re going to briefly look at the Luxury Vinyl Tile Flooring in regards to its durability. We’ll show you why they’re durable and what you should be looking for in terms of quality and longevity.
Also often referred to as resilient flooring (for good reason), luxury vinyl tile and plank is a relatively new-comer in the flooring market, but has quickly proved to be very popular due to its durability and versatility. It can be installed in any room of the house, including high traffic areas, basements and bathrooms.
Available both in work look or stone look formats, Luxury Vinyl is constructed with different layers to ensure core stability and excellent resistance to wear and tear. Here’s what to check to ensure you get a truly durable result:
- Wear layer – This is what will keep your luxury vinyl tiles scratch proof and UV resistant. Check the brand that you’re choosing has those built-in protections in the wear layer, and that it is sufficiently deep. A standard product will have a wear layer of about 4mil, but a superior product will have pa wear layer that is 12mil deep.
- Core layer – This is what determines the rigidity and waterproof nature of a luxury vinyl plank, and different brands have different ways of making this layer; reputable brands all have core layers that perform well.
- Acclimation – Some brands of luxury vinyl require that the product is acclimatized to the local environment before installation to minimize the risk of warping. Getting your LVT flooring installed properly will be key to its durability.
Just a quick damp mop or sweeping with a broom or vacuum will do. Make sure to avoid harsh cleaners and detergents with ammonia, bleach, or abrasive compounds, as these could damage the floor’s surface. Also, when mopping up any stains, consider cleaning the entire floor instead of just one area, as those spill-prone spots could show premature wear.
