Avoiding Dents & Other Types of Damage On Your Luxury Vinyl Tile

Avoiding Dents & Other Types of Damage On Your Luxury Vinyl Tile

Here is how you can keep your luxury vinyl tile from sustaining damage.

There are many floors people can pick for their homes, and luxury vinyl tile has been getting increasingly popular over time. It’s a durable flooring option, but it still has to watch out for potential damage from denting, among other things. The possibility of damage to your flooring exists, but you can take measures to make sure your floor is protected. Here is how you can keep your luxury vinyl tile from sustaining damage.

Protecting Luxury Vinyl Tile While Moving Furniture

If you plan on moving heavy furniture, we advise you to lift whatever it is you are moving instead of attempting to drag it across the floor. If you drag heavy pieces of furniture across your luxury vinyl tile, you can scuff up your floor or sometimes even tear it.

For items that are too heavy to be lifted, you can protect your floor by putting a protective layer between your furniture and your floor. Bed sheets, wooden boards, and carpets are great protective layers you could try. They all keep sharp edges of furniture from digging into your floor and causing tears.

Are Rolling Casters and Rolling Desk Chairs Fine On Luxury Vinyl Tile?

Even if you have a protective layer preventing damage to your luxury vinyl tile, your floor will eventually sustain damage from rolling desk chairs and casters. The tiny wheels will slowly but surely begin wearing and tearing through your floor. Usually, the small wheels they have will form floor prints, especially once a person’s weight is added into the equation. This combined pressure from the weight of the furniture and the person will leave a small dent behind.

However, it’s still possible to use furniture with wheels, and the best way to do this is with the help of carpeting or a mat. Putting felt tips on your chairs is also an option if you want to take another avenue.
