Carpet Mart's luxury vinyl tile FAQ

It's that time again! Time for another handy flooring FAQ. If you are currently on the hunt for quality flooring, and are having a hard time separating the fact from the fiction, this useful guide should help answer your questions about luxury vinyl tile flooring.
Here are the answers to a few of the most common questions we get about LVT from clients visiting our showroom!
What do I need to do to maintain it?
Your lifestyle is a major factor in which flooring material is best for you, and your dedication to maintenance is part of that equation. A lot of people ask if it is hard to maintain luxury vinyl tile flooring, because they are worried about being chained to something that is more of a chore than they signed up for. If that sounds like you, we have some good news: LVT is super-easy to maintain!
Basically, you just have to be sure to sweep regularly, and occasionally run a mop over it for deeper cleaning. Aside from that, just make sure to avoid sharp impacts, or dragging furniture and you should be just fine!
Is it waterproof?
We've all heard horror stories about wood floors or carpeting, that have been completely destroyed by water damage from even a simple accident like an overflowing sink. Well, luxury vinyl tile is fully waterproof, so you won't have to worry about a bit of moisture hitting the floor!
How long will it last?
With proper care and maintenance, you can expect your luxury vinyl tile floor to last for between ten and twenty years, depending upon the quality of flooring you start with. This longevity is thanks to the extremely durable wear layers that are applied to the surface of the flooring, to protect it from all of those nasty things that can happen to an unsuspecting floor.
