Vinyl Flooring

Vinyl flooring employs a finished flooring material that has been in wide use in both residential and professional applications since the early 1950s, and into the early 1980s. Contemporary vinyl floor tiles and variations of the products sold since the early 1980s are manufactured using coloured polyvinyl chloride (PVC) chips, and a combination of heat and pressure, shaping the chips into solid sheets that vary in thickness.

Who says that vinyl flooring has to look cheap and tacky? There is a new take on the old fashioned Novilon flooring. It looks like wood and comes in sheets or individual planks. The product is made of pure synthetic, compressed, recycled material. Pictures are printed onto the product, followed by a protection layer. This represents a relatively affordable flooring solution. However, the finished product succeeds in exuding quality and class.

What types of vinyl are available?

The main differences between vinyls are their "wear layer", i.e. how much traffic they can handle (their durability) and their texture, i.e. smooth, slight texture, or coarse texture. Wear layers vary from 0.2mm to 0.55mm. Your choice in this regard will be determined by the intended use and location of the floor in question.

How to clean my vinyl floors?

Sweep or vacuum regularly to remove loose dirt, which can scratch your floor. Avoid vacuums with a beater bar, since it can visibly damage the floor surface.

 

Avoid electric brooms with hard plastic bottoms with no padding, as use would result in discoloration, scratching and loss of gloss. Wipe up spills as soon as possible, even wet feet. NEVER use highly abrasive scrubbing tools on any resilient floor. Wash your floor regularly with a vinyl floor cleaner by spraying the cleaner on a mop and wipe the floor. (Spaghetti mops not allowed). DO NOT use detergents, abrasive cleaners or “mop & shine” products as it will leave a dull film on your floor. Over time, when the floor begins to dull, apply Resilient Low Gloss Floor Finish to restore the appearance.

 

Do NOT use paste wax or solvent base polishes. The floor can become slippery when wet. Allow time for the floor to dry after washing. Put trays underneath all pot plants. We recommend that UV protectors are installed on windows to avoid discoloration.
