Berber carpet in Chandler

If you don’t want to fuss with maintaining a floor after you install it, you’re not alone. Flooring products that require little to no upkeep are continuing to arrive on the market, and they are very popular with Chandler area homeowners. Here are three low-maintenance flooring options you’ll find at Floor Coverings International Chandler-Gilbert:

Stain Resistant Carpet

Carpet sometimes has a reputation for being high maintenance, but that all depends on the product you choose. If you opt for an easy-to-clean design with added stain resistance, carpeting can actually be relatively low maintenance. Steer towards nylon carpets in low-pile styles, such as saxony or Berber. You can also go the extra distance by selecting a carpet with patterns that can conceal minor stains and dirt build-up.

Luxury Vinyl Planks or Tiles

Do you like wood floors but worry about scratches and dents? If so, luxury vinyl planks and tiles are the perfect low-maintenance solution for you. They can be made to look like stone or wood, but without the hefty price tag or the tedious upkeep. Vinyl doesn’t get scratched easily and is a quick clean with a light vacuum or sweep. In addition, vinyl requires no refinishing or sanding to stay looking attractive.

Laminate flooring in ChandlerLaminate

If you want another economical alternative to luxury vinyl, laminate is a great choice. Though it may not have the same level of moisture resistance, laminate flooring can realistically mimic hardwood at a much lower cost. Many high quality laminate products are designed for scratch resistance, so they can stand up to high traffic while requiring minimal cleaning and maintenance.
