In this installment of our series “Flooring FAQ’s”, we will answer the most common questions about resilient flooring:
- What is the difference between resilient and vinyl flooring?
- Resilient and vinyl flooring are the same. They are simply different terms used to describe the same type of flooring.
- Is resilient durable?
- Yes. Resilient flooring is very durable, and is an excellent choice for high traffic areas or in areas with moisture, such as bathrooms, kitchens, or laundry rooms.
- Is resilient flooring stylish?
- Yes. With new advances in digital technology, resilient flooring is more stylish than ever. There are a wide range of both tile and wood looks to choose from, and are often virtually indistinguishable from the “real thing.”
- What type of mat can I place on my resilient floor?
- Use non-staining mats on your floor; do not use rubber-backed, latex-backed, or coco fiber mats on your floor, as they may stain or damage the surface. Also, use doormats outside each entrance to your home to prevent dirt, sand, grit, and other substances such as asphalt and driveway sealer from being tracked onto your floor.
