Luxury vinyl from Joe's Floor Shop


Luxury vinyl can do so much

When a homeowner has their heart set on hardwood flooring, but can’t fit it into the budget, luxury vinyl flooring (LVF) is a great alternate option. The same story is true for those who prefer natural stone or porcelain or ceramic tile. These natural resources are hard to beat, for a variety of different reasons, but LVF is definitely a great stand-in when the real thing is a bit out of reach.

The fact that vinyl flooring can so closely mimic these real products is one of the main reasons that homeowners tend to choose luxury vinyl over other types of flooring, time and again. But that’s not the only benefits to this amazing floor covering. There are lots more reasons to make this choice.

Luxury vinyl benefits you can’t miss

When you have a basement that needs flooring, solid hardwood flooring is just not an option. The change in temperatures and humidity can cause it to contract and expand, which can lead to warping, bending and even cracking and splitting. No one wants to subject their flooring to such situations.

On the other hand, you can still have the great wood look without those worries simply by choosing luxury vinyl instead. It doesn’t react to the temperature changes or humidity in the same way as wood does, and it’s much more tolerant of other environmental factors.

LVF is also more resistant to stains and fading than those natural resources as well. Of course, there are some stains that are detrimental, no matter your level of protection, but thankfully, those don’t happen every day! The ones you do have to worry about won’t be nearly as worrisome as they use to be. And if you do find yourself in a problem area, there are specialized cleaners made just for this particular product that make cleanup a whole lot easier. As far as regular maintenance and cleanup are concerned, it couldn’t be a simpler experience. The first step is to make sure you sweep or vacuum up any stray dirt or debris.

This is an important step, as it can cause scratching if left on your floor. The next step is to follow up with mopping. In most cases, you’ll only need to dampen the mop with warm water. However, if you choose to use a cleaner, make sure to check your manufacturer’s specifications for the very best one.
