Many styles of LVT looks like wood so much so that you really have to look at it closely to determine if it is LVT or wood. You can also purchase LVT that looks just like tile. LVT is a very versatile product and can be used in any room in the home. The newest LVT product has a water proof core. This is very popular for bathrooms and kitchens because it is water proof and you can just wipe up spills without worries. It is also becoming very popular in businesses because of its versatility.
Information about LVT:
People are using LVT in their homes instead of hardwood and tile as it is much easier, faster and cheaper to install.
Ease of maintenance. You can just sweep up dirt from the LVT or wipe it down.
LVT is extremely durable, especially the thicker styles designed for businesses or higher traffic areas.
LVT can hide sub floor imperfections.
Most LVT has a sound mitigating underlayment.
LVT is great in basements as you can put it right over the concrete flooring.
LVT is warmer to walk on than tile so it is more comfortable in the winter months.
Two main types of LVT:
Glue down which is glued directly to the sub flooring or concrete.
Floating or tongue and groove which clicks together. This style is pretty easy and quick to install with minimal clean up.
Cost for LVT is typically $1.50 to $4.00 a foot based on the wear layers and design. The thicker the product the more the cost as it is heavier duty and it will last longer. A water proof core is also a factor. Installation costs will vary based on the type of LVT chosen. The other factors include the floor preparation involved and if you have base molding that needs to be removed and reinstalled.

Indoor air quality is more important than ever. The EPA reports that we spend approximately 90% of our time indoors. Carpeting in your home can actually provide a healthier quality of air in your house. Carpet is made up of piles of carpet that form a three-dimensional structure. This structure traps dust, pollen, pet dander and allergans so that they do not continue to circulate in the room like they would if you have tile or hardwoods. You need to clean your carpet regularly with a good vacuum cleaner fitted with a HEPA filter every week to remove the particles.
Carpeting requires less chemicals to clean than other flooring coverings, which helps reduce the amount of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) present in the air. We primarily use a vacuum to remove the dirt. VOCs are an outdoor pollutant emitted from cleaning agents that can accumulate indoors without proper ventilation. If you have tile or hardwoods you will typically be using cleaners that have VOC’s.
When scientifically tested, the air above carpet contains fewer allergens and dust mites than the air above hard surfaces, says Kathryn O. Sellers, director of public relations for the Carpet and Rug Institute, Dalton, Ga. She feels carpet is an asset rather than a detriment to air quality because it tends to hold allergens out of the air until they are vacuumed away. But, here’s the catch: the carpet must be vacuumed and cleaned often enough.
It is recommended that you have your carpeting professional deep cleaned every year so that any deep down dirt gets removed.
When you buy carpet make sure you look for: Certifications like Green Label Plus that certify that the brand of carpet is a low emitter of volatile organic compounds.

Here is a quick tip in case of a Holiday party wine spill on your carpeting. Perhaps you are having a Christmas dinner and a crazy uncle is getting a bit tipsy and his wine glass tips over spilling on the carpet. What should you do?
As soon as wine is spilled on your carpet get a clean rag and put it over the spill and apply pressure to blot up the wine. Keep blotting the wine up with clean towels until you cannot absorb any more wine. Then get a damp cloth, with cold water so the stain does not set in, and blot until no more is visible on the towel.
Here are the basic steps to take whenever Wine is spilled on your floor:
Soak up and blot the spill area.
Apply a cleaning solution.
Leave solution on 5 minutes or more.
Rinse with cold water; cover with white paper towel.
Common cleaning solutions:
Mix 1/4 teaspoon mild liquid dish soap with one cup warm water.
Mix 2 tablespoons white vinegar with 4 cups warm water.

Be cautious of the “Big Box” stores if you are wanting to get new carpet installed. They often have promotions where they advertise “Free Carpet Installation.” We all know nothing is free and the only way they can afford to pay their subcontractors is to give you cheaper quality padding and /or carpeting.
Service is not their top priority. They advertise low prices and free installation but the reality is that the Big Boxes are more expensive than a company like Coventry Carpets when you compare what you are getting.
