To find the very best and long-lasting product, make sure it is at least 8-mm or 9-mm thick. There should be a thick wear layer, the top, melamine coated surface that protects the floors from scratches and scuffs. The wear layer is measured in mils; yours should be 20-mils or more. Good quality flooring, when properly taken care of, can last almost 20 years.
This vinyl is also easy to take care of with a daily sweeping and periodic mopping. Avoid wax, shine promoting cleaners, as they can harm the top coating and create dullness. To be safe, only use a manufacturer-approved cleaner.
Installation is the fast and uncomplicated floating floor. The pieces click together similar to a tongue and groove or pizzle. They form a mat that hovers over the subfloor. Subfloors only need to be clean, dry, and level, but the installer will sometimes sand it down. Otherwise, imperfections can telegraph to the surface floor.
