Before purchasing your luxury vinyl floor here are 5 Things to Know

5 Things you need to know about luxury vinyl flooring before purchasing and installing your new floors.

1. Subfloor

  • See Installation Instructions regarding approved subfloors for installation. Otherwise, you could experience telegraphing, adhesive release and peaking or gapping.

2. Moisture

3. Sunlight

  • Exposure to sunlight can cause expansion and contraction (excessive movement) of luxury vinyl.
  • To avoid such movement use Hallmark 3 in a wet set application, in addition to controlling the environment. See installation instructions and Maintenance and Warranty brochure for environmental parameters.

4. Scratches

  • All Luxury vinyl scratches and is not covered under warranty.
  • For excessive scratching or high traffic wear use Hallmark ABC Recoat System to restore the surface coating.
  • Note: always test a small area before applying to the entire floor.

5. Maintenance

  • Hallmark Floors only recommends the use of Hallmark Trueclean for maintaining its luxury vinyl floors.
  • Other cleaners can leave a residue, hazing or incompatibility with the recoating process.
