If you have been considering flooring for your home or office and want something durable and easy to clean, you may be wondering if you should opt for vinyl flooring or carpet. In this blog, we weigh up the differences between vinyl flooring compared to carpets to help you choose which flooring offers the best cleanability for you.

Dirt and spills

Dirt is a common issue with flooring. Carpets will work more like a filter when it comes to dirt. They will allow dirt and dust to be vacuumed up, until then, it is captured in the flooring. Meanwhile, spills are often a bigger issue with carpets. Depending on the type of spill, it can cause staining to the carpet. A spillage on the carpet can also result in attracting more dirt to that area.

That said, if spillages are a concern in your home, we have carpets that come with a stain guarantee. The added benefit of the stain guarantee not only gives protection against stains that cannot be removed by yourself or a professional carpet cleaner, but peace of mind knowing your carpet is ready for the bustle of home life. Another issue with wet spillages on carpets, specifically broadloom carpets, is that the moisture can pass through the carpet and result in mould growing under the carpet.

Some of our most popular ranges holding stain guarantees are; Stainfree Ultra, Stainfree Pure Elegance and Primo Ultra.

Want to mop your flooring?

Vinyl flooring or LVT is much better when it comes to cleanability. This is especially the case when it comes to spillages. Vinyl flooring is a non-porous material. This means that it keeps moisture and other harmful substances or bacteria from penetrating through. Our luxury vinyl flooring also comes with a wear layer that has a polyurethane topcoat. This means that it gives your LVT a natural resistance to not just moisture, but also staining and scratching. Both hard floorings can therefore be mopped using a pH-balanced floor cleaner. Leaving the floor to naturally dry will prevent streaking marks. 

Some of our most popular vinyl flooring and LVT ranges are; Denvertex, Gripstar, and Bloom 

Comfort or easy to clean?

The main difference in the choice of flooring is whether your top priority is comfort or easy to clean? Vinyl flooring and LVT are extremely easy to clean and can be disinfected with ease too. However, if you choose a hard floor you are losing that soft and luxurious feeling of carpet underfoot which can be extremely cosy and welcoming in a home.
