Frequently Asked Questions

What is vinyl flooring?

Vinyl flooring was developed for lasting performance, to withstand heavy traffic and for easy maintenance. Vinyl flooring offers many options. It is available in sheets or in tiles. It can be made to resemble other materials like stone, ceramic tile or hardwood.

Can sunlight fade the colour of my vinyl floor?

Yes, all vinyl floors are likely to fade in the constant rays of direct sunlight. Closing your window blinds will help protect your vinyl flooring. Having your floor properly sealed will also help to minimise the effect of discolouration.

What happens if I stain my vinyl floor?

Act quickly with any stain using the correct method according to the type of stain:

  • Clean rust with an antirust liquid or oxalic acid.
  • For Ink, tomato juice, mustard, blood, urine: use diluted bleach. 30 volume peroxide with a few drops of ammonia or alcohol vinegar works well. Soak for a few minutes without rubbing and then rinse.
  • Grease, paint, texta, petrol, alcohol, rubber marks: rub with pure detergent and then rinse.

Avoid using the following:

  • Solvent wax, varnish, black soap, linseed oil-based products, acetone, trichloroethylene
  • Abrasive powders or pads
  • Rubber caps on your chairs or furniture stain your flooring, replace them with plastic ones

We have a variety of professional stain removal techniques that can remove approximately 90% of stains. Please request an onsite quotation if you require stain removal as results may vary depending on the type of stain.


Can scratches, tears and holes be repaired in my vinyl floor?

We can fill small holes and replace damaged tiles or sections of sheet vinyl as required. The hardest part of the job is colour matching the repairs to the existing vinyl.

We recommend ensuring that your initial flooring purchase includes several extra vinyl tiles or an additional length of your sheet vinyl in case of damage.

How long do I have to stay off my vinyl floor?

We recommend that stay off the floor for up to 24hrs if possible. Depending on the sealer used and the temperature it can take up to 24 hours to cure. If you do need to access your floor prior to this we can use fans to speed up the process and can have you back on your floor just one hour after the final coat.

How long does a floor restoration take?

The time varies from job to job but we typically only require one day to finish all floors under 1000 metres squared. If you have a large commercial floor please contact us do discuss us using a larger team or extending your project over multiple days.

What is the average lifetime of a vinyl floor?

The lifetime varies widely because differences in the quality of the product greatly impact its longevity. Vinyl flooring generally lasts from between 5 to 30 years. Properly maintaining your floor will also impact how long it lasts. Our schedule maintenance program will help you to get the most out of your vinyl floor.
