Advantages and Disadvantages of Vinyl Floors.

Vinyl flooring is durable and stands up well to heavy foot traffic. It is comfortable under foot and reduces noise, which can be important for owners with kids or pets. It is also less expensive than many other flooring options and is easy to install and maintain.  

We often get the question, “Are vinyl and linoleum the same thing?” The answer is no. While linoleum is often used as a synonym for vinyl sheet, it’s more accurate to say that they’re both resilient floors – meaning they can restore their shape. Their only similarity is that linoleum and vinyl both come in sheet goods (on a roll rather than tiles).

Choosing Between Linoleum and Vinyl:

Both linoleum and vinyl are easy to clean, but linoleum will require a little more care. The cleaning products you use will be different too. Linoleum is more sensitive to cleaners and strippers that are high in pH, so always look for neutral detergents.
