Luxury Vinyl Flooring in Ft. Lauderdale, FL
How & Where to Use Luxury Vinyl Flooring in Your Home
Unlike most types of flooring, you’ll find that luxury vinyl can be used effectively in almost any room throughout the home. This opens up the possibility of adding the look and feel of natural wood or tile flooring to spaces where they wouldn’t normally be possible.
If you want to incorporate luxury vinyl into your kitchen, bathroom, laundry room or finished basement, be sure to select a waterproof product. This will help you avoid damage from moisture and spills.
Luxury vinyl tile and luxury vinyl plank are both excellent choices in any room that sees a lot of regular foot traffic. This feature also makes them well-suited to living rooms and hallways. Add a tile look or wood look to any room with a luxury product from one of our favorite brands, including COREtec, Dolphin, Mohawk, Pergo & More.
Installing Luxury Vinyl Flooring
Luxury vinyl flooring can be installed over virtually any existing surface. If your subfloor is concrete or if you have existing tile or hardwood, vinyl can float overtop.
You’ll find that, as with any type of flooring, a professional installation is recommended. Ft. Lauderdale Dolphin Carpet has vinyl flooring installers on-hand to assist you with your home build or renovation.
If you do prefer a DIY job, however, luxury vinyl can be one of the simplest types of flooring to install on your own. Simply follow the instructions provided by your manufacturer. Typically, you’ll be dealing with a click-and-lock installation, which utilizes a system of tongues and grooves that simply snap together to create a tightly sealed surface.
What is the best way to clean luxury vinyl flooring?
One of the biggest appeals of luxury vinyl flooring is the ease with which it can be cleaned. We often recommend luxury vinyl to busy homeowners who have less time in their schedule to devote to flooring maintenance, since all you typically need to clean vinyl is a broom or a dust mop and a damp mop for occasional tougher messes.
In the event of a spill, luxury vinyl is designed to be stain- and moisture-resistant. Most messes can simply be wiped up with a clean cloth. Note that stain-resistance does not equate to being completely stain-proof. Be sure not to let messes sit for too long.
