Luxury Vinyl

Universal Carpet has been installing many different types of flooring in residential and commercial locations for over 32 years, and this includes vinyl tile flooring. Vinyl is a material that is generally inexpensive, easy to install, and it will last for many years when properly maintained. It is made from polyvinyl chloride resins and plasticizers. This material is ideal for all rooms of a home or business, including bathrooms, kitchens, and basements. Vinyl is known for being a material that is known for having waterproof qualities. This means that it's not going to be damaged by moisture. It is also a great flooring option for locations that see a lot of foot traffic because it is able to maintain its appearance for years and years without any signs of wear and tear.

When it comes to choosing the right tile for your location, we have many different styles, colors, and patterns available. There are some tiles we offer that actually resemble the look and texture of natural wood - all without the maintenance and care needed for hardwood flooring. There are also tiles available that resemble marble, and other types of more expensive floor coverings. Once you have chosen the perfect tile for your home or commercial location, we will get to work on installing it.

Installing Vinyl Floor

Installation for luxury vinyl flooring is fairly straightforward. Most vinyl is in tile form with self-adhesive backing. The backing is peeled off and then properly placed on the floor. Some cutting may be needed to get the tiling to fit around corners and baseboards. There isn't any additional adhesive that will be needed to keep this flooring in place.

Maintaining Your Floor

Maintenance for vinyl flooring is fairly simple. You should sweep it often with a broom or vacuum to be sure that dirt, dust, and grime don't build up. Your manufacturer's manual will tell you which cleaners can be used on the flooring, and you should only use the ones recommended to you so that you don't strip off the vinyl's surface. There are special cleaning products available that will help to give your flooring a high gloss or satin finish to keep it looking great for many years to come. It is important that you also never use any kind of abrasive tools when cleaning the floor because these can scratch the surface or cause the edges of the tiles to actually start peeling up.
