The Benefits of Vinyl Flooring

Vinyl flooring is one of the cheapest floors on the market. Not only that, but it is also the easiest to install, meaning you can effortlessly replace your floor yourself if it undergoes excessive damage.

However, the chances of it suffering irreparable damage is unlikely. As vinyl can be both stain resistant and waterproof. This is why a vinyl floor is often recommended for rooms which see a lot of moisture, such as bathrooms or kitchens.

Where Should I Lay a Vinyl Floor?

Because of the versatility of vinyl, it is suited to every room of the house and even commercial spaces. The best vinyl flooring for such areas is heavy duty commercial vinyl which has been designed to last longer in higher traffic areas.

However, this flooring is particularly suited to rooms which see excessive moisture, such as bathrooms, as other flooring types may not last long in such a humid environment. Specially designed water-resistant vinyl is the best for these rooms.

Vinyl flooring is available in a wide variety of colours, textures and designs. For example, you can get vinyl wood flooring, which imitates solid wood but at the price of cheap vinyl flooring. Vinyl tile flooring is also available, which easily replicates the look of tiles while being softer underfoot.

How to Install Vinyl Floors

Vinyl flooring rolls are the easiest type of flooring to install by yourself.

Start by taking your new flooring out of its packaging to allow it to acclimatise in its new environment for 24 hours.

• While this is happening, prepare your subfloor. Ensure it is clean and dry. Because vinyl is soft, any bumps will show once your flooring is installed.

• Once your floor has acclimatised, cut your floor to the size of your room. It’s recommended to add an extra 15cm to your dimensions in case you run short. This can always be trimmed away afterwards.

• Lay your sheet of vinyl flooring over the subfloor. Your method of sticking the floor down depends on the size of the room.

• For a small room of 12 metres squared or less, you can get away with loose installation, where no glue or tape is required.

• For rooms between 12 and 25 metres squared, it’s recommended to use tape. A double sided tape underneath the sheet of vinyl will suffice

• For rooms over 25 metres squared, glue is best to keep the vinyl in place.

• After fixing your vinyl down, add skirting or beading around the perimeter of the room. This can be fixed with a hammer and nails.

How to Maintain Vinyl Flooring

While vinyl flooring is the easiest type of floor to care for, it still needs a little TLC if damage is to be avoided. Most of these are precautious methods to avoid damage. For example, it’s helpful to use a vinyl floor covering such as a door mat to avoid any dirt getting in and scratching your floor. With any heavy furniture, you can place padded floor protectors underneath, for example under the legs of chairs that could tear your vinyl.

When it comes to cleaning your vinyl floor, water and a mop will do the trick. If you want an extra sparkle, a mild cleanser will help clean without damaging the floor.
