The vinyl itself is durable, and luxury should be thick, at least 8-mm or 9-mm. (Go even higher if you want an authentic hardwood feel.) It’s multi-layered with a clear, melamine sheet at the top that protects the floor from scratches and scuffs. It also keeps spills sitting there so you can easily wipe them off. Wear layers should be at least 20-mils.
Whether plank or tile, this vinyl is very easy to clean. Sweep daily so dirt doesn’t embed. Damp-mop weekly with a manufacturer-approved cleaner and avoid waxy or shine-promoting cleaners as they can dull. If you need more shine, get the advice of your flooring pro.
Installation is the fast and uncomplicated floating floor. The pieces click together like a mat, then hover over the subfloor with no nails or glue. Subfloors need to be clean, dry, and level.
