What is Tarkett flooring?
Tarkett are most well-known for providing floors for professional spaces, whether that be kitchens, hospitals, or sport centres. Their floors are practical, hygienic and able to withstand heavy footfall. They’re available in a wide range of styles. However, it’s Tarkett vinyl floors that are most popular, as they offer a variety of benefits for both commercial and residential spaces.
Why is Tarkett vinyl flooring so popular?
With over half of all hospitals in Europe using Tarkett flooring and countless other industries choosing their floors too, it’ll come as no surprise that Tarkett vinyl has multiple benefits. These range from easy maintenance to durability, variety of style to slip-resistance. Read on for more information to why Tarkett vinyl is so in-demand.
Easy to clean and maintain
A major selling point of Tarkett vinyl floors is how easy they are to clean and maintain. Tarkett vinyl is non-absorbent, which means water sits atop the floor rather than soaking in. This makes any spillages incredibly easy to soak up without damaging your floor. That said, you’ll still need to ensure you don’t leave any spillages for too long as excess water left for long periods can cause damage.

Another great aspect of Tarkett vinyl is how well they minimise sound. As these floors are cushioned, they have incredible sound reduction qualities. This helps not only limit the noise of footsteps and movement but also helps to soundproof rooms in terms of music and television volume.
Most Tarkett vinyl floors are made from PVC which allows for a range of styles, colours, and prints. Boasting remarkable and realistic wood and tile effects, these floors can give you the aesthetic you desire without having to choose a floor for your room that doesn’t suit the kind of traffic expected. For example, certain tiles may not be suitable for kitchens where there is a risk of heavy pots and pans being dropped. Instead, a Tarkett vinyl floor tile solution will be ideal, offering the style you need with the practical elements to make it last.
Plenty of Tarkett vinyl is resistant to chemicals and is therefore suitable for industries where spillages are likely. This can be particularly effective in factories, kitchens and hospitals who use hot and abrasive liquids will need a floor that stays intact should the worst happen. Make sure you check the product description of each Tarkett vinyl floor or speak to one of our advisors to ensure your choice is chemical resistant.
As Tarkett vinyl is cushioned, it deals with footfall and traffic extremely well. By responding to applied pressure, it’s able to avoid scratches and abrasions better than laminate or solid wood. For this reason, most Tarkett flooring comes with a 15-year guarantee. So, you can rest assured when choosing Tarkett as your floor is built to last
