What Does "20 Mil" Mean?

One of the main benefits of this type of flooring is its durability. But what does "20 mil" actually mean? In simple terms, it refers to the thickness of the wear layer - the protective coating on top of the vinyl. A 20 mil wear layer is thicker than other options, like 12 mil, which means it's better at resisting scratches, dents, and stains. This makes it perfect for busy households with kids and pets.

Choosing the Right Style for Your Space

When picking your vinyl flooring, think about the size and shape of your room. For bigger spaces, consider wider and longer planks to create a sense of grandeur. For smaller rooms and bathrooms, thinner planks can help keep things looking balanced. As a general rule, try to run the planks along the longest wall and in the same direction as the natural light coming in from the windows.


Installation and Maintenance Guidance

HPM Design Centers offer tips on how to properly install your flooring and can advise the contractor you choose based on your preference and layout of space. Proper installation is key to getting a beautiful, long-lasting result. Start by making sure your sub-floor is level and clean. Whether you're a DIY enthusiast or hiring a professional, it's crucial to take the necessary precautions and follow the manufacturer's guidelines when cutting door jams to ensure the flooring fits neatly underneath.

StrataLux Click & Lock flooring, available at HPM, features a high-quality click-lock mechanism that securely holds the planks together and minimizes gaps, offering a superior alternative to traditional flooring joint systems.


Effortless Maintenance

One of the best things about vinyl flooring is how easy it is to keep clean. Just use a damp mop or a Swiffer-type product to wipe away dirt and grime - no fancy cleaning products or steam cleaning needed. With just a little bit of regular maintenance, your floors will stay looking great for years to come. Refer to the warranty and installation guide for more information.


Investing in Your Home's Value

Installing StrataLux Click & Lock vinyl flooring in your home is not only a smart choice for your daily life but can also increase your home's value. By investing in this durable and stylish flooring solution, you'll enjoy its benefits for years to come while making your home more attractive to potential buyers in the future.

StrataLux Click & Lock flooring comes with a Limited Residential and Commercial Warranty included with your purchase, giving you peace of mind and protection for your investment.
