Do My Vinyl and LVT Floors Need to be Waxed or Finished?

The Importance of Protective Coatings

Vinyl flooring and Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) have become popular choices for homeowners and commercial spaces due to their durability, affordability, and versatility. However, like any other flooring material, they require proper care and maintenance to ensure their longevity. One crucial aspect of maintaining vinyl and LVT floors is applying a protective coating.

Why Do Vinyl Floors Need a Protective Coating?

  1. Wear and Tear Resistance:

Vinyl floors are exposed to foot traffic, furniture movement, and daily use. Over time, this wear and tear can lead to scratches, scuffs, and dullness. A protective coating acts as a shield, preventing direct contact between the floor surface and potential damage.

  1. Enhanced Durability:

Vinyl flooring finishes can wear down over time due to cleaning, UV exposure, and chemical exposure. Applying a protective coating reinforces the floor’s top layer, making it more resistant to abrasion, stains, and fading. 

  1. Improved Appearance:

A fresh coating enhances the floor’s appearance by restoring its original shine and luster.  Whether you have residential vinyl or commercial LVT, a well-maintained floor contributes to a clean and inviting space.
