Vinyl Flooring – Vinyl Tiles & Vinyl Rolls

What is Vinyl Flooring

Vinyl is a type of resilient flooring among many others currently sold in the market. Just like rubber, PVC and linoleum, vinyl is an artificial composite flooring material that is produced across several parts of the world. Synthetic floorings, such as these, are generally cost effective alternatives to natural types of flooring like real wood, concrete, ceramic and marble.
 
As a type of resilient flooring, vinyl is resistant to impacts of high heels, heavy objects and large furniture. On top of that, its slightly cushioned effect makes the flooring comfortable to walk on and safer for homes with young children and elderly.
Vinyl is also a finished flooring material used primarily for commercial and institutional purposes. It’s made of several layers, with the vinyl part of the tile used as the backing, and the base of the tile used for the provision of support for the entire tile. Various inks or dyes are used on top of this surface to give the vinyl its customary appearance, but the base itself is made from the same substance that other plastic products like PVC are made from.
 
Tiles are applied to a smooth, leveled sub-floor using a specially formulated vinyl adhesive that remains tacky but does not completely dries. Vinyl flooring also comes in sheets and planks. It can imitate wood grain, tile and even marble.
 
Today, it’s a known fact that many large corporations are having vinyl tile flooring installed at various parts of office buildings, workstations, shopping malls and showrooms.

Application

Vinyl flooring can be easily installed on practically any existing flooring. Whether it’s in your home or office,
or other commercial areas, the installation process is certainly quick, easy, mess-free and clear from
disruptive hacking.
 
If your existing flooring made of marble, ceramic or homogenous tiles, the leveling will usually be acceptable
(however, note that ceramic tiles must have the grout lines filled). If the sub-floor is concrete or cement
screed, the ground may not be as leveled and it is strongly recommended that you apply a self-leveling
compound to ensure the sub-floor is leveled and smooth.
 
Existing skirting – vinyl strips can be installed without removing your existing skirting. However, if you prefer
to remove your existing skirting and to install new skirting, we are able to provide you this service of hacking
and disposal of your existing skirting and to install new laminate or solid wood skirting.
 
As Vinyl tiles are glued to the sub-floor, the leveling will thus follow the contour of your existing flooring.

Suitable For Commercial & Residential Installation

Commercial building lobby area, reception area, pantry, showroom, spa, retail shop, exhibition space, childcare , café, food court, restaurant, landed homes, condominiums, apartments, show-flats, etc.
 

That’s exactly why it’s very important that the existing flooring prior to application is sufficiently leveled. This
will very much determine the firmness and stability of the vinyl flooring once it has been installed. If your
sub-floor is not leveled, the completed vinyl flooring may look uneven or wavy.
 
Although vinyl tiles are water-resistant, excess water seepage will result in damage to the glue. To avoid this,
we recommended against installing Vinyl tiles in areas with high moisture. Also, new cement screed floor
must be completely dry before installation of Vinyl Flooring. The moisture may damage the vinyl glue and
the vinyl floor will not be properly glued to the sub-floor.

The maintenance of vinyl flooring is relatively simple. For regular cleaning, simply sweep away dust, sand and grit particles, vacuum, and mop with clean, warm water.
If you want extra protection, placing mats or rugs at the entrance of your home or office will help prevent dust and grit from accumulating on you flooring.
When removing stains, try cleaning with diluted/mild household detergent and gently clean the stained area. But if all else fails, use special vinyl cleaning agents to get rid of the stain.
Be careful not to use industrial detergents, abrasive cleaners, steel brushes or “mop & shine” solutions. If you have extremely heavy furniture or appliances putting pressure on your flooring, it is strongly recommended that appropriate protection be used to avoid permanent damage or indentation to the flooring.
Lastly, keep your vinyl flooring looking its best by avoiding any exposure to direct sunlight.
