Frequently Asked Questions

LVT flooring is installed by firstly creating a smooth, flat & clean surface.

Then, either adhesive is applied to the prepared subfloor for glue-down methods or the planks are clicked together for floating installations.

It is important to prepare the subfloor adequately prior to installing any form of luxury vinyl flooring.

Luxury vinyl flooring is simple to keep clean.

Start by sweeping or hoovering the floor to remove any loose debris then clean the floor with a damp (not wet) mop avoiding using any bleach products as this abrasive cleaner can damage your flooring – always opt for a pH neutral cleaner as recommended by the manufacturer.

No, LVT flooring should never be steam cleaned as the high level of heat and moisture can not only damage the surface but the adhesive underneath too.

Stick to regular sweeping and damp mopping with a mild detergent for safe LVT floor cleaning.

Luxury vinyl flooring can last anywhere between 10 to 30 years, depending on the amount of foot traffic and how well it is maintained.

Luxury vinyl flooring, often shortened to LVT, refers to the high-quality vinyl flooring that closely mimics the look and feel of natural materials such as wood, stone, or even tiles.

The main difference is that LVT has better waterproof properties, is more durable in high-moisture areas, and has a softer feel underfoot.

Although LVT floors are very hardwearing, they are not completely scratchproof.

Therefore if you are moving furniture about in your house we recommend that you lift and shift rather than dragging across the surface.

Additionality ensure that debris that could scrape against the surface is removed by brushing or hoovering with a hard floor specific hoover.

Place felt pads or cups under any furniture, such as dining chairs and sofas.

LVT stands for luxury vinyl tiles and SPC stands for Stone Polymer Composite.

The main difference is SPC has a high concentration of stone powder in its core, where as LVT is 100% vinyl.

LVT flooring is also traditionally glued down and SPC is usually a floating floor installation method.

LVT is a more permanent floor covering and SPC is usually more DIY friendly as it is installed by clicking rather than sticking.
