Engineered luxury vinyl is one of the most versatile, durable, and affordable flooring products available. SPC flooring, also referred to as Rigid Core, is the newest addition to this product category and its making a big splash among waterproof flooring!
SPC stands for Stone Plastic Composite. What makes this flooring unique is the core material which is comprised of limestone powder, polyvinyl chloride, and stabilizers. The result is an extremely rigid and stable base. Additionally, the waterproof core of these planks means that these floors are perfect for wet areas in the home such as kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms, and basements. They also can handle environments with extreme fluctuations in temperature.
Another popular type of luxury vinyl is WPC. WPC and SPC have a similar construction. Each feature 4 layers:
So, what’s the difference between the WPC and SPC? WPC, or wood plastic composite, has a core made from wood pulp and plastic composites. SPC has a limestone mixture core. It is this stone core that provides this flooring with exceptional durability. Although some brands of SPC are thinner, the dense core helps this floor resist dents, dings, stains, and scratches better than WPC. Pets and children? Yes, please. SPC can withstand busy households while looking great!
When it comes to design and style, SPC flooring offers a wide array of colors and patterns. The natural beauty of hardwood and stone are expertly replicated giving each plank a unique and authentic styling.
Our homes are our havens and the less time it takes to clean, the better! Caring for SPC floors is straightforward and simple.
Regularly sweep, dust mop, or vacuum your floor. Wipe up spills promptly and protect floors from dirt and grit that can be tracked in by using walk off mats at every entrance. Avoid abrasive and hash chemical cleaners as well as cleaning tools with abrasive surfaces as they can damage the wear layer to the floor. Water, a mild dish soap and soft cloth or mop are all that are needed to remove more stubborn marks or dirt. Be sure to review the manufactures instructions and recommendations. In a few easy steps, you can keep your SPC flooring looking its best.
