The preferred flooring today, however, because it is almost 60% cheaper than any other flooring, is Vinyl Flooring. While building a new home in the invariably tight budget, the difficult choice is the selection of the flooring for the house. There are many options available today such as wood, marble, tiling, carbonate, etc. The major plus point in having a vinyl flooring is its ease of maintenance and versatility, and one knows why it is so popular today. Compare this with wooden flooring, and you will come to know of the benefits of vinyl flooring very soon. Time is taken to put in place and the cost factor doubles, plus the need to wax polish the wood regularly and the problem of stains staying on. Vinyl flooring can be cleaned with a wet cloth and if the room is less used, just weeping the floor is enough. Add to this the fact that it does not get stained easily, and dust hardly sticks on to vinyl flooring.

Unlike a stain of water on wood, there is little danger of the vinyl flooring rotting as would happen on wood. With just a damp cloth, most stains can be tackled. However, for grease and other difficult stains, a damp washcloth with soap would do the trick in a matter of just minutes. The dampness also dries up much faster than on wood and the effort involved is much lesser. As it is dust does not stick to the flooring. Hence, it can be just swept away with the help of a broom.

Vinyl flooring comes in tile form and is fairly simple to install. The tiles too are normally self-adhesive, so no messy glue or fixing solution is required. If on a tight budget, one can do the installation oneself.It is almost, like a crossword by placing tiles in the desired sequence. The time taken for installation of vinyl flooring is also much lesser as compared to wood flooring plus the advantage of little expertise required all of which controls the cost factor.
