Benefits of Vinyl
1. Easy to clean. First and foremost for families with children, flooring must be easy to clean, and quality vinyl is one of the best performing categories of flooring when it comes to cleanability. Most dirt, grime and food wipes off easily, and bigger messes clean thoroughly with just soap and water.
2. Water resistant. Since children are prone to spills, you also need flooring to stand up to liquid. All vinyl flooring is water resistant. And some vinyl flooring is even 100% waterproof, trapping liquid on the surface to protect your subfloor from damage and mildew.
3. Comfortable underfoot. Many flooring options are hard and unforgiving. Vinyl flooring is resilient, meaning it absorbs impact. Not only will it ease your children’s falls, it will also provide comfort underfoot in areas like the kitchen where you stand for long periods of time.
4. Sound dampening. Not only are children messy, but let’s face it, they can also be incredibly loud. The harder your floors, the more sound will reverberate through the house, amplifying all your children’s squeals, shrieks and general noises. There is no magic mute button for your children, but vinyl flooring absorbs sound, making their outbursts a little less deafening. The addition of a quality underlayment will enhance the sound dampening attributes of your floor as well.
5. Warmer underfoot. Children spend a lot of time on the floor, and in the wintertime especially, floors can be cold. Because vinyl is softer, it tends to stay warmer to the touch than other hard surface flooring options, which you and your children will appreciate.
6.Non slip.Slip resistant flooring is extremely popular across every industry sector and is an ideal flooring choice for schools, care homes, leisure centres, wet rooms, bathrooms, nurseries, classrooms and science labs.One of the best option for slip resistance is vinyl flooring. Our vinyl flooring is R10 rated. Therefore our vinyl flooring is very suitable for families with children and elderly people.
7. Stylish. When you think of vinyl, you may picture your grandmother’s faded and yellowed linoleum, but resilient flooring has come a long way since those days. High-quality vinyl flooring now mimics the high-end look and texture of hardwood, ceramic tile and stone with such realism, even flooring experts sometimes do a double take. Now you can have that expensive wire-brushed hardwood look in rooms where the kids eat, drink and play without the worry or hit to your wallet.
