Well, for the active home or business --- even military housing, healthcare and retirement facilities, education and government buildings ---which wants flooring to look great and stand up to heavy use, there’s finally a product everyone can agree on!
There are many price points in resilient floors and even more ways to install the products, from gluing the product to the floor to “loose” laying the floors so they can be removed easily if necessary or when it’s time to redecorate. Available in 6 and 12-foot widths, depending upon the size of your room, it is possible to create a resilient floor without seams.
Not having seams makes the floor easier to clean and eliminates the “dirt catching” aspect of any other floor with seams.
What about maintenance?
With resilient flooring, there is no need to wax or apply any dressing on today’s floors. It is recommended to use the cleaner specified by the manufacturer.
Oh here’s a thought about air quality and resilient flooring…
Since we spend about 90 percent of our time indoors, the indoor air quality is very important. The Resilient Floor Covering Institute (RFCI) has developed a program with Scientific Certification Systems called the FloorScore Program. This is a great program that certifies resilient products for compliance with indoor air quality.
