The living room is generally low to moderate foot traffic location in the home. While parties and social gatherings may be held there, and refreshments may occasionally spill, the inherent durability of vinyl will ensure that it is easy to clean and maintain, allowing it to achieve a full 10-20 year potential life cycle before it needs to be replaced.
Maintenance: Caring for vinyl in a living room is a relatively easy process that requires you to sweep or vacuum it regularly. If an accidental spill occurs and there is some staining, you can use soap and warm water, or any mild detergent mopped onto its surface to clean the material.
Sunlight: Often living rooms are built with big windows that allow bursts of bright, cheery sunlight to come streaming in. Unfortunately, over time, direct sunlight can cause a vinyl floor to discolor, taking on a yellowing hazy look. This can be offset by strategically placing curtains and or blinds in the windows, and shielding the floor against the brightest parts of the day.
