No. 1 Choice:
Vinyl flooring is the number one choice for hard surface flooring. Resilient flooring is defined as a non-textile floor that provides underfoot comfort, and characteristically bounces back from repeated traffic or compression.
Vinyl flooring provides substantial health, safety and performance benefits over other flooring options because it is durable and easily cleaned, which minimizes bacteria growth, and makes it ideal for use in kitchens, school lunchrooms, and hospitals.
Vinyl flooring is also a sustainable choice. Well maintained, it can last for 30 – 50 years, cutting down on waste sent to landfills, and conserves raw materials that would otherwise be consumed in manufacturing new products. The vinyl flooring industry engages in extensive recycling activity. Many of its products contain 5 – 10% post-consumer recycled materials, and some contain much more. Based on the industry’s Environmental Product Declarations, only between 0.3% and 4.5% of materials used in manufacturing vinyl flooring products, on average are sent to Landfill. as waste.
