Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) has emerged as a top contender in the flooring industry, combining aesthetic allure with functional prowess. However, the beauty and longevity of any flooring are as much about proper installation and maintenance as they are about the product itself. As experts in LVT, Carpet Galleria offers insights into ensuring your LVT flooring remains a cherished aspect of your home for years.
Luxury Vinyl Tile Installation : Laying the perfect foundation
Preparation is Key: Before LVT installation, ensure the subfloor is clean, smooth, and free of imperfections. Carpet Galleria’s experts often emphasize the importance of a flawless base to prevent future issues.
Choosing the Right Method: Depending on the LVT product, there are multiple installation methods like click-lock, glue-down, or loose-lay. Our team at Carpet Galleria can guide you in choosing the method best suited for your space.
Expert Hands: While LVT installation can be a DIY project for some, having it professionally installed ensures precision and longevity. Carpet Galleria’s team of installers guarantees a seamless finish.
Maintenance: Preserving the LVT Charm
Routine Cleaning: Dust and dirt can cause scratches over time. Regular sweeping or vacuuming (without a beater bar) helps maintain the floor’s luster. Carpet Galleria also recommends using entrance mats to minimize dirt.
Deep Cleaning: For a more thorough clean, use a damp mop with a pH-neutral cleaner recommended for vinyl floors. Avoid excessive water and harsh chemicals, which can damage the flooring.
Protection: Felt pads under furniture legs, especially heavy ones, can prevent potential indentations. For areas with high sunlight exposure, use blinds or curtains to minimize direct UV exposure, ensuring the color of your LVT remains vibrant.
Immediate Spill Cleanup: While LVT is water-resistant, it’s always a good practice to clean up spills immediately to prevent potential staining or damage.
Regular Inspection: Occasionally inspect your LVT for signs of wear or damage. If you detect any issues, Carpet Galleria can provide guidance on repairs or replacements, ensuring your floor remains in pristine condition.
