While all vinyl is durable, true LVF is thicker, measuring at least 8-mm. It has a top, transparent, melamine coating that protects the floors from scratches and scuffs and keeps spills at the top waiting to be wiped off. Since vinyl itself is a waterproof material, the waterproof capability is inherent; luxury vinyl can be spilled or submerged.
This material only requires daily sweeping and periodic mopping with a manufacturer-approved cleaner. Avoid wax, shine-promoting substances as they damage the urethane finish and can dull the floor. If you think you need more shine, seek the advice of a flooring expert.
Installation is also easy. The pieces click together, mat, then hover over the subfloor with no nails or glue. Subfloors need to be clean, dry, and level.
Although luxury vinyl flooring is an uncomplicated installation, it sometimes still needs extra care so subfloor imperfections don't telegraph through to the surface. That means we'll sometimes sand a subfloor if it needs leveling. To learn more, get inspired and get a free quote come into the Cypress Custom Floors & Remodeling showroom
