No one gets their homes re-floored every other year. You definitely want to invest in a flooring option that lasts a lifetime. To make this happen, you need to do your research and invest in durable choices. You need flooring that won’t require a lot of upkeep and doesn’t show signs of scratches after being subjected to high foot traffic! Let’s explore your options.

What defines low maintenance?

When we say low maintenance, we’re talking about the ease of cleaning it. As a busy homeowner, you probably don’t have a lot of time to scrub the grout lines. Homeowners need flooring options that only need to be dusted and mopped. A low-maintenance floor is also more resistant to spills and stains and can be easily wiped clean after a spill. You might also want to invest in flooring that doesn’t require much staining and sealing over the months. In this case, you won’t even have to worry about getting the grout replaced every few months, either.

Carpet tiles

Wall-to-wall carpets are soft, durable, and very easy to maintain. It’s not the same as carpeting the entire floor with one roll of carpet. Residential carpeting incorporates a series of carpeting tiles rolled over the floor. In case a part of your carpet gets stained, you don’t have to replace the entire roll. Just replacing the tile would do the job. This also results in less labor, less downtime, and fewer installation expenses. Although the initial cost of carpet tile installation is higher, the ease of maintenance and functionality benefits outweigh it. Plus, thanks to industrial-strength tiles and sophisticated moisture-resistant adhesives, you can install carpet tiles almost anywhere.   A flooring expert from San Antonio working on a laminate floor installation project

Luxury vinyl tiles

Luxury vinyl tiles (LVT) are known for their extraordinary ability to handle the traffic. Other than being beautiful, it’s also tough and highly durable. All you need to do to keep it clean is sweep it regularly with some mild soapy water. You don’t need to worry about staining the tiles—they’re also water-resistant. LVT is better than vinyl composition tile (VCT) in several ways. VCT might come off as a cheaper option initially, but you’d need to get it stripped, waxed, and polished regularly. On the other hand, LVT flooring comes with an outerwear layer. As a bonus, LVT flooring comes with immense design flexibility. This means they can mimic almost any type of flooring material, including hardwood and stone!
