Scratch-resistant vinyl flooring in a New Franken, WI kitchen

Are vinyl floors scratch-resistant?

One of the things vinyl flooring is most noted for is its exceptional durability. There are several options you can choose from, offering more or less protection in certain areas, so it?s important to know what you?re looking for in a floor covering.

If you?re wondering whether vinyl is easy to scratch, the answer is usually not. But here?s more of what you need to know about that.

Sheet vinyl recommendations and more

There are many reasons scratch resistance is vital to you. Perhaps you have pets, children, frequent houseguests, or any one of a dozen other reasons.

With both luxury vinyl and sheet vinyl flooring, you have the option to choose the wear layer thickness you prefer. The thicker the wear layer, the more protection you?ll have against all types of daily wear, including scratches.

However, there are other ways to protect your flooring, keeping them scratch-free for longer. You can place doormats, area rugs, and runners in spaces where traffic levels are the highest and add floor protector pads beneath heavy furniture legs.

During floor cleaning, be sure you don?t use cleaners that contain heavy abrasives and do not vacuum while the beater bar is engaged. Instead, use a damp microfiber mop and if you must use a cleaner, make sure the manufacturer recommends it.
