Water damaged vinyl flooring is often unexpected. In an area such as a kitchen or bathroom, sheet vinyl flooring and water are generally a good match. A recent claimant on a floor covering inspection told me they understood that they could chalk one more problem off their lists and install sheet vinyl instead of laminate over their newly poured concrete. The result was water damaged vinyl flooring. So was this a manufacturing problem?
Wondering about Marmoleum flooring and if it is the same as linoleum flooring? Marmoleum is a trademark of Forbo Flooring Systems and Marmoleum is a brand of linoleum just as Formica is a trademark for a brand of countertops, Pergo a trademark for a brand of laminate floors or Kleenex a trademark for a brand of tissue. Each of these products may be very similar to other products but they have a uniqueness of their own.
Sheet vinyl, linoleum so similar looking to the untrained eye but is sheet vinyl linoleum? You will sometimes hear people refer to their sheet vinyl flooring as linoleum. It is true that these two products are used in much the same way. While they are similar appearing – comparing sheet vinyl and linoleum is like comparing apples and oranges.
