Are you looking to buy vinyl click flooring? Want to learn more about it? Don’t even know what it is? Well we’re here to tell you everything that you need to know about vinyl click flooring.

The Very First Question To Answer Is: What Is Vinyl Click Flooring?

Vinyl Click flooring is a type of Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) that easily locks together- hence the name “click” flooring. It has all the same benefits as regular LVT, such as durability, warmth, and water resistance, but adds the feature of quick and easy installation.

It is an engineered floating floor that is fully waterproof. This means that it can work in many parts of your home, including mudrooms, kitchens, and bathrooms, which are usually out of the question when placing wood-look flooring because of the possibility of contact with water. Vinyl Click floors lock together tightly, which prevents water from seeping through to the underfloor.

One Of The Most Commonly Asked Questions Is How Is Vinyl Click Flooring Installed?

Just like the name suggests, vinyl click flooring has a locking mechanism on the edges of the boards, allowing the flooring to be ‘clicked’ together. There is no need for any complex tools, nails or glue. This means they can be laid over the top of an underlay without the individual tiles needing to be glued down.

This flooring can be used on cement, granite, tile, laminate and other flat subfloors. Since vinyl click is so quick and easy to install, it makes for a great DIY flooring installation.

Another Important Question To Ask Is What Does Vinyl Click Flooring Look Like?

To put it quite simply, vinyl click can look like anything. The surface is covered with an ultra-realistic photographic layer, which can replicate any flooring material you want! This means it can look like dark wood, light stone or anything else in between.

Vinyl click flooring is made up of multiple layers. The very top layer is made of a UV coating, and the second layer is a wear layer to protect against scratches, dents, and sunlight, which cannot be seen by the naked eye. The third layer is the one you will actually see, which is the decorative layer. This layer is the high resolution image layer, which comes in a variety of designs such as wood grain, natural tile, natural stone, or even ceramic tile floor. The layers underneath are the backing layers, which are generally made of PVC, fiberglass, and vinyl.

When it comes to cleaning vinyl click flooring, it’s very easy. In fact, they are some of the easiest floors to clean. Since the tiles are waterproof, you can easily use a wet mop to clean up any dirt that could have built up on the floors. Over time, the vinyl flooring might start to become dull as a result of the finish getting worn, but it’s nothing to worry about as it’s super easy to reapply the finish.
