The benefits of luxury vinyl flooring

WRITTEN BY Jonathon Bright
| Ambiance Vinyl Flooring

Put simply, luxury vinyl flooring delivers all the benefit of natural material and flooring but with reduced material, fitting and maintenance costs. Our blog looks at some of the benefits of luxury vinyl flooring as well as showcasing the ranges we have to offer.

QUALITY, FLEXIBILITY AND LOW MAINTENANCE

Customers choose luxury vinyl flooring because it’s incredibly hard-wearing, elegantly finished and provides years of trouble-free use. It is also extremely durable and low-maintenance.

Many customers desire a natural look at a fraction of the cost of natural products. Let’s look at some of the benefits of luxury vinyl flooring in more detail:

DURABLE

Vinyl is a long-lasting flooring material that maintain its looks. Our 3mm-thick flooring features a 0.7mm polyurethane-coated wear layer, with a very high-quality design film and compact backing that gives our flooring its unrivalled durability. Our flooring stays in good condition for long periods of time. Easy to maintain, it’s guaranteed for 30 years in a residential setting.

There are 5 layers to vinyl flooring:

One of the big worries with natural materials is how to deal with scratches and damage that can occur. Particularly in a busy household with children and pets. Vinyl removes that headache as it’s easy to replace damaged sections and the associated costs are very small compared to a floor made from natural materials.

UNDERFLOOR HEATING-FRIENDLY

Often, when people renovate or build extensions they install underfloor heating. It’s a great way of warming a room particularly if there’s a lot of glass. Which is often the case with extensions built onto the back of kitchens to make a bigger open plan room. Vinyl flooring works particularly well in this setting since its composition allows it to warm more effectively. With its soft texture and underfloor heating it makes a very cosy flooring choice.

LOW-MAINTENANCE

Vinyl’s imperviousness removes potential issues with humidity or moisture damage. So, from a maintenance perspective, other than washing with water and a light detergent, your floor requires no hard work to retain its great look. With an Ambiance floor, you can have confidence that your floor will look superb for years to come.

We’re so confident in the quality of our flooring we guarantee it for 30 years in a residential setting.

Caring for a vinyl floor is straight forward:

Care guide
1. Sweep, mop and dry vacuum regularly.
2. Do not use a steam mop.
3. Wipe up spillages or excess water immediately.
4. Wash with diluted cleaner using a damp cloth or sponge.
5. Use a firm nylon sponge for stains.
6. Clear, odourless mineral spirits may be used on stubborn stains.
7. Always test cleaning solutions on an inconspicuous area first.
8. Avoid contact with dark rubber products.
9. Protect against continued direct sunlight.
