Vinyl Flooring: Easily Damaged and Hard on the Environment
Today’s vinyl flooring options can imitate hardwood and ceramic tiles. In addition, they easy to install for DIYers. Yet they come with problems that should make homeowners question their value. First, installation is trickier than one thinks. Because vinyl is a relatively soft material, the subflooring must be perfectly clean and smooth before installation. Even small dirt particles can get pressed into the vinyl and create bumps and eventually tears in the vinyl. Likewise, the vinyl is easily damaged. If Aunt Marj drags a chair across it, the chair’s legs could leave lasting scratches that open later into tears. Those tears are difficult to repair easily, too. Finally, vinyl emits VOCs—that is, Volatile Organic Chemicals—into your household. Since basements typically aren’t well ventilated, this out-gassing can be very problematic for allergy and asthma sufferers. Thus, we don’t think the short-term improved appearance vinyl floors offer outweigh these negatives.
