Is vinyl flooring durable?

Vinyl flooring is exceptionally durable. Good quality vinyl has great resistances against scratches and damage, is waterproof and very easy to clean. Vinyl is often used in commercial applications because of it’s durability and ease of use. Vinyl floors are some of the easiest to clean and maintain and are a great choice for households with kids and pets!

How do I clean a vinyl floor?

Easy – regular vacuuming, and any spills or marks can be cleaned with some non-abrasive basic cleaning products. Vinyl flooring is often installed around break rooms and kitchens because it is so easy to clean spills and is hard to damage.

Spills or soiling can be easily mopped up, we recommend using a gentle cleaning product and some warm water. Vinyl floors are one of the easiest types to clean and maintain, making them popular for family homes, rental properties and work places.

How is vinyl flooring installed?

Vinyl flooring is installed either glue-down or using a hybrid clicking system.

Sheet vinyl & vinyl planks/tiles are attached to the subfloor using vinyl flooring adhesive. Hybrid vinyl flooring uses a click-lock system that you find on floating floors.

Hybrid, sheet and vinyl tiles/planks require a even subfloor to install.

Is vinyl flooring hygienic?

Vinyl flooring is very hygienic. It is easy to clean, does not absorb spills and is a very hardy floor covering. Vinyl flooring is often used in hospitals, medical facilities and kitchens because of this!

Modern vinyl flooring has low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) emission ratings, and are often recommended to people with allergies. Vinyl flooring is a fantastic choice for those who want to keep their property pristine, or want their flooring to be durable but simple to clean and maintain. 

Are Vinyl flooring and Linoleum the same?


Linoleum is made from materials such as solidified linseed oil (linoxyn), pine resin, ground cork dust, sawdust, and mineral fillers such as calcium carbonate. Linoleum has largely been replaced as a floor covering by the vinyl flooring which is often colloquially but incorrectly called linoleum or lino. Vinyl flooring has similar flexibility and durability to linoleum but is not made of natural materials like linoleum.

Modern vinyl floor tiles and sheet flooring and versions of those products sold since the early 1980s are composed of colored polyvinyl chloride formed into solid sheets of varying thicknesses by heat and pressure. Luxury vinyl tile (LVT) is an industry term for vinyl that realistically mimics the appearance of natural materials with an added layer to improve wear and performance. The extra layer of protection is usually a heavy film covered with a UV-cured urethane that makes it scuff, stain and scratch resistant.Sometimes the term “luxury vinyl tile” is reserved for products that mimic stone and ceramic, whereas the term “luxury vinyl plank” is used for products that mimic wood.

Is Vinyl flooring recycled

This depends on the manufacturer – a lot of vinyl flooring producers are using recycled vinyl to produce their flooring. Some manufacturers run a vinyl recycling scheme – here are some links to some of the suppliers we work with where you can check out more information!
