If you’re a busy, on-the-go type of person, you may not have a lot of time for flooring maintenance—and that’s okay! As the flooring industry has shifted to reflect modern lifestyles, a variety of options have arisen to fit their needs. At U.B. Hardwoods, we’re proud to stock materials made for everyone, no matter budget or lifestyle, and that includes those who may not have the patience for maintenance-heavy floors.
Below, we’ll discuss a few of our top picks for customers looking for a no-fuss flooring that’s with them every step of the way.
Luxury Vinyl Floors
Right at the top of the list—and hands-down to boot—are luxury vinyl floors. This material is top-notch in terms of waterproofing, meaning that spills simply wipe off the top. They also aren’t fussy in terms of cleaning products used, though you should still double-check to make sure your cleaner-of-choice isn’t unnecessarily degrading. In terms of upkeep, it requires little more than vacuuming and mopping now and again.
Luxury vinyl floors are also great in the durability department, meaning that you won’t need to go through the hassle of repairs often; indeed, The Spruce also attests to its strength. If you want flooring that keeps looking awesome with little help, vinyl is perfect for you.
Solid Hardwood Flooring
Shocked? You shouldn’t be! Hardwood really isn’t that difficult of flooring to take care of. You can hire a professional for floor refinishing, and such a task only needs to be undertaken around every decade—more often if it’s subjected to heavy foot traffic. Just like vinyl, it requires only sweeping and cleaning with hardwood-friendly products now and again to keep looking its best.
That said, do know that wood floors can stain, so you will need to take care to clean up spills quickly to avoid that.
If you live in a home that struggles with humidity issues, yet still want natural wood floors, engineered hardwood might be the perfect low-maintenance option for you. Thanks to its partial-plywood constitution, it renders itself dimensionally stable. It doesn’t require refinishing, and just like the other two floors listed here, all you need to do is vacuum and potentially dry-mop it as far as maintenance goes.
