You may have seen coved up skirting and sheet vinyl flooring installed in hospitals, childcare centres, classrooms and commercial kitchens. They come with several benefits that make them an ideal flooring option for workplaces which require greater level of hygiene.
With broad range of designs and patterns available such as single/multi colour shades, motifs, wood and granite patterns, an interior space with sheet vinyl flooring installed can be as aesthetically pleasing as any other type of flooring materials.
Easy to Clean
A space is very easy to clean with coved up skirting and sheet vinyl flooring. The material is non-porous. When fitted correctly, it will not have seams, nooks or crannies like tiles do. This prevents germs and bacteria from breeding, growing of mildew and dusts being swept towards the corners. It is also less prone to unsightly stains and marks.
It can withstand huge amount of traffic, regular and intense cleansing, sanitizing and sterilizing using harsh chemicals.
It is a safe flooring to minimize risk of falling injury.
Although there are different price tiers for sheet vinyl flooring, they are typically the cheaper option compared to hardwood or granite flooring.
Poor Acoustic Control
It does not absorb sound well like carpet flooring does and hence it is not a good option for office environments that require good acoustic control.
Carpet flooring provides a better comfort compared to sheet vinyl flooring.
Less Environmentally Friendly
It is made of PVC and less environmentally friendly in the process of manufacturing and disposal.
