Life is too short to waste time cleaning. So, when choosing a flooring installation that would best suit your home, it’s essential to think about how much time you’re willing to dedicate to maintenance and cleaning. While most factors are based on personal preference, our pros at Young Interiors have decided to come up with the following helpful list of the 5 easiest Myrtle Beach flooring options to take care of.
1 – Hardwood
Classic, elegant, there’s certainly no other known material that can truly compare to solid hardwood. An appealing, polished look that can blend in easily into any setting, hardwood has been a favorite for so very long. Though it tends to be on the pricier side of materials, hardwood is never a regrettable choice. Easy-to-clean, it only requires a regular sweeping and weekly pass with a damp mop.
2 – Ceramic
If you’re in search of something truly easier to maintain, then look no further than ceramic tiles. Available in a wide array of colors, patterns, designs, shapes, and sizes, these tiles require very minimal upkeep. A simply wipe-down will solve all your worries!
3 – Vinyl
Capable of mimicking any type of surfacing on the market, vinyl is typically a win-win solution. However, while it doesn’t take much to clean it, it’s important to clean it with a bit more care than some other surfacing options, as it can get discolored if you don’t use an appropriate cleaning product. Indeed, it is low-maintenance, but check with your flooring experts to ensure you’re using the right cleaning agents.
4 – Porcelain
Much like ceramic, porcelain has similarly straightforward cleaning guidelines. Frequently at a lower price than it’s counterpart, it’s also less porous, thus requiring of a higher degree of water resistance. Avoid chipping by selecting glazed tiles, so you can maintain a high-quality appearance while keeping everything low maintenance.
5 – Laminate
Aside from being easy to clean, laminate is also an incredibly budget-friendly option. However, you’ll want to hire flooring installation services to ensure your tiles or planks are affixed properly, so you won’t have to deal with buckling from a DIY later on. With laminate, all you really need is a microfiber dry mop, with a damp mop application for deeper clean-ups once in a while.
