Flooring is an essential part that cannot be skimped on when designing the interiors of your home! While you might think that it’s easy to furnish your home flooring, there’s more to it than what meets the eye. Therefore, it’s best to enlist the services of a hardwood flooring company to assist you with your flooring needs. However, due to the misconceptions and myths that float around the subject of home furnishing, people are dissuaded from seeking help from an expert and make mistakes that they live to regret. To help you steer clear of these misconceptions, Bert Vis Flooring Inc has debunked some of the most widely believed myths about home furnishing

Myth 1: Vinyl flooring is outdated and unappealing.

Vinyl flooring has come a long way since ten years ago. Currently, it is one of the top sellers in the flooring industry. The manufacturers continue to adapt and revolutionize this product to meet the highest standards. 

Love the look of hardwood but not the price? No problem, luxury vinyl plank is a favorite choice because it is softer on the feet, less expensive, and can withstand water-prone areas.

Prefer the timeless look and elegance of ceramic? Luxury vinyl tile has an array of different ceramic styles that can be installed easier without all the prep work that ceramic tile requires. They are not slippery like ceramic and are great for DIY since they come in a glue-down application or click and lock.

LVP and LVT offer beveled edges and realistic textured surfaces that mimic hardwood and tiles and natural stone.

Myth 2: Hardwood flooring is difficult to maintain.

With proper care, hardwood is very easy to maintain. All you need is to regularly sweep or vacuum (without the beater bar) the surface. If you can do this weekly, you will remove the debris (that could cause scratches) and maintain the longevity of your floor. Also, make sure you use a hardwood cleaning agent bought from a reputable flooring company. Any other big box store cleaners run the risk of leaving a residue behind on your hardwood that you may not see at first, but over time it will cause grime to build up and dull your floor. It is also important to place protective pads under all your furniture to avoid any unnecessary scratches from furniture movement.

Myth 3: Quartz countertops is high maintenance.

Unlike granite and marble, quartz is easier to maintain and provides the look of natural stone. Since quartz is a man-made product, it has the capacity to be more forgiving in several ways. This product does not require regular sealing to prevent staining since it is not porous like natural stone. Quartz also has a high heat resistance and does not fade from natural sunlight. It is also less expensive to purchase than natural stone and is nearly indestructible and scratch-resistant.
