Although most vinyl flooring is water-resistant, detergent can still affect the shine of the floor if the water is left on it for an extended period of time.

Any disadvantages to vinyl flooring?
In terms of beautifying your house, vinyl flooring doesn’t add up quite like natural surfaces such as wood or stone. While vinyl flooring is also noted for its durability, it can get scratched and occasionally be difficult to repair or demolish. Try to avoid installing vinyl flooring in rooms with heavy sunlight because repeated exposure may cause the finish to fade.
How much flooring is needed for a room?
Calculating how much vinyl flooring you’ll need for a project is usually simple. Firstly, determine the total square footage of a room by multiplying the length and width of the floor. Add 5-10 percent to this number for wastage just in case – more may be required if your room has a lot of angles and corners that will require additional cuts. Then, look at how many square feet are in each box of vinyl flooring you are looking to purchase. Next, divide the total square footage of flooring you’ll need by the number of square feet in each box. This will tell you how many boxes to purchase.
