Vinyl Flooring in Burnaby Supplying Greater Vancouver BC

Vinyl flooring is a very popular and practical flooring choice as it is easy to clean and maintain, is durable, and it is comfortable to stand on. It is a great option for kitchens and bathrooms as it is slip-resistant and doesn’t get damaged by water as easily as some other flooring options.

Vinyl flooring is available in 12 or 18 square inch tiles, as well as planks or sheets up to 16 feet wide.

Vinyl Flooring, Vinyl Tile, Vinyl Sheets, Resilient Flooring
Vinyl Flooring Vinyl flooring is made from several materials. It is also available in a variety of colours, patterns, and textures.

Vinyl flooring is very versatile in terms of installation, as it may be installed on top of plywood subfloors, concrete, or existing floors such as hardwood or laminate. However, it is very important that the subfloor is smooth, as bumps and seams will become visible on the surface over time.

Sheet vinyl can be installed with barely any seams, and sometimes none at all. However, installation of sheet vinyl can be difficult and is best done by a professional.

Vinyl has a durable coating on its surface that is called a wear layer. If durability is of importance, it is a good idea to take a look at commercial vinyl flooring which comes with less colour options but is extremely durable. Waxing is usually not required for any vinyl flooring as it is usually given a protective surface layer.

Resilient Flooring

Resilient Vinyl Flooring Vinyl, polyurethane, linoleum, asphalt, and cork all fall under the category of resilient flooring, but vinyl is the most common resilient flooring material. It is so popular due to its comfort, durability, and easy maintenance. It is also relatively inexpensive.

Maintaining and Cleaning Resilient Flooring

Resilient flooring is very durable, but if proper maintenance procedures aren’t followed it can still get damaged. Floors should be kept clean of dirt and grit, as this can get ground in to the surface and wear away the protective layer. If a spill occurs, either food or liquid, it should be wiped up immediately or the stain may become hard to remove. Before they have a chance to set, stains should be removed using a cloth dipped in liquid floor cleaner, or a nylon pad. Abrasive cleaners and mechanical buffers should be avoided, as this may weaken the protective coating and cause your floor to wear out faster.

Scratches and gouges may occur if care is not taken to avoid them. Again, keep your resilient flooring free of dirt at all times. Heavy foot traffic and moving furniture can also cause wear patterns, so placing mats at exterior doors or high traffic areas is a good idea. Also furniture that gets moved often should have felt or rubber protective pads placed on the bottom. The colours and patterns on your resilient flooring that spend too much time in direct sunlight may begin to fade over time, so resilient flooring is not the best option for spaces that receive a lot of sun.

If resilient flooring is not installed properly, it may develop bumps or bubbles under the surface, and curled up edges. To avoid this, have your flooring professionally installed.

It is recommended you save some of your flooring material or tiles so that if damage does occur repairs may be made.

Vinyl Plank Flooring: Glue-Down, Click System
Vinyl Plank Floors Vinyl plank flooring is vinyl flooring that is available in strips or tiles that looks like real hardwood or tile. It is extremely versatile as you get the look of hardwood or tile, but as it is vinyl, it is extremely durable and resists moisture.

Vinyl flooring is available in a wide variety of styles, providing endless design options. It may mimic lighter wood to look like ash or bamboo, or darker wood that looks like cherry or oak. Vinyl flooring is available in faux hardwood, faux stone, and faux ceramic tile. It can be installed residentially or commercially and is much more affordable than traditional hardwood and tile floors.

Vinyl flooring is ideal for lower budgets and for spaces in which hardwood floors could get damaged. Unlike hardwood floors that can be very easy to scratch and stain, vinyl flooring can stand up to much more abuse without showing any signs of wear and tear. You get the look of hardwood but the durability of vinyl flooring. Design-wise, it is just like real hardwood, but it is easier to clean, easier to install, and is available at far less the cost of real hardwood flooring.

Vinyl flooring usually comes in either rolls or strips and is extremely easy to install. It’s a great choice for commercial use, a child’s room, a family room, a rec room, or a playroom. It won’t be damaged or stained by children playing with toys, or pet accidents. It is also very easy to clean, as it can be wet mopped without much risk of damage. It is holds up great to spills and moisture, which makes it great for kitchens, bathrooms, mudrooms, basements and laundry rooms. You may even install it in a garage.

Finishing & Maintenance

In order to keep your floor in good condition, the following measures should be taken:
 
  • Your floor should be swept regularly to remove dust and dirt;
  • Spills should be cleaned up with a damp cloth;
  • A damp mop should be used to clean your floor about once a week or more often, depending on the amount of traffic it gets. Excessive water should be avoided, as this could damage your floor over time;
  • Avoid using abrasive cleaners;
  • Furniture should be equipped with felt or protective pads to prevent surface scratches.
