Having children changes a lot of things in your life and the house is no exception. You have to think carefully about protecting your little ones, but also try to minimise any damage they could cause too. Among the things you might have to consider changing is your floor. This decision could help you save money in the long term, simply by choosing a surface that can resist against spillages or that can be easily cleaned without needing to be replaced. So what kind of floor is best in this instance? Well, what if we told you that there is a floor like that not only passes the test of time, but also is very hygienic and easy to install? Look no further than vinyl click flooring!

What is it and how do I clean it?

Vinyl click flooring is a type of vinyl floor – shock! And as with any other vinyl flooring it is the result of combining different synthetic materials such as PVC, a vinyl sheet, a foam core and a felt backing which gives to the floor its well known, characteristic soft feel. Because of the way is done, vinyl flooring is very durable and resistant. We often recommend this style of flooring when you have a family because it is fully waterproof, so as we mentioned previously it able to  withstand spillages. You don’t have to worry about your children being messy and dropping anything, because not only is water resistant, it is also scratch-proof  and more importantly it is also a very low maintenance floor. All that it needs is to be regularly sweep or mopped using a warm damp cloth.

What is its life span?

Of course you’ll be wondering how much this floor lasts, if cared correctly it can stay in your home for up to 20 years! Not bad for one of the cheapest floors on the market right now and great if you’re working on a budget too.

How does it appear?

Vinyl flooring is not only about practicality it has also everything you could wish for on the  aesthetic side of things too! In fact, vinyl flooring can perfectly replicate most surfaces, including wood or tiles. Which is great if you’re looking for something that appears expensive but doesn’t do too much damage to your wallet.

The click system

But why are we calling this floor vinyl click and not simply vinyl flooring? Well, here there is another added feature. Vinyl click flooring is a type of floor that locks together. So it has all the properties that we have said the vinyl flooring has, but on top of this it is very easy to install. This is perfect for DIY lovers, but it also enables to save that bit of money that otherwise you would have use to pay a specialist to install your floor. Finally, another benefit of this installation system is that in the rare case that a tile gets damaged, you only need to replace the damaged one, you don’t need to replace the whole floor, unlike with other styles of flooring.

So, if you are thinking of giving your house a makeover then we would definitely say that vinyl click flooring is the perfect floor for you and your family.
