What makes Hybrid great for busy Family Homes, especially during a Pandemic?
There are lots of attributes that make Hybrids perfect for busy family homes. Some of these benefits, like the ease with which the flooring can be disinfected, make Hybrids a great choice during the COVID-19 pandemic.
These benefits include:
- Stain resistance
- Low cost of replacement
- Exceptionally easy to clean and disinfect
- Sturdy and durable enough to stand up to even the toughest tenants
- Looks great and doesn’t drive down the cost of the property or rental rates
- Doesn’t have some of the health and safety drawbacks of other flooring materials
Some flooring materials, especially carpet, are dust, dander and indoor-air pollutant magnets. If any flooring is going to make a home more susceptible to viruses, mold and bacteria, it’s carpet. Carpet is harder to keep clean, dry and thoroughly disinfected.
The dust mites and other allergens that carpet often harbors can worsen breathing problems for people in a household. If someone does get COVID-19, minimizing additional environmental breathing hazards, like dust, allergens and mold spores, can be vital, especially if residents have preexisting allergies or asthma.
Hybrid isn’t permeable or porous. The invisible wear layer is tough enough to withstand thorough disinfection. It’s one of the reasons Hybrid is a popular flooring in health care settings.
Why Is Hybrid Great for Property Owners and Investors?
Hybrid looks great, is affordable and is exceptionally durable. Those three factors alone put it head and shoulders above some of the alternative floors for busy family homes.
Some types of flooring will detract from property valuation. For property sales, Hybrid generally isn’t a huge boost to valuation (unless the existing flooring is a significant detriment), but it also doesn’t damage valuation like some lower quality flooring options might.
Maintenance is another legitimate concern for the cleaner of your homes. If you have solid wood floors, the chances are you will eventually need to refinish those floors. Refinishing is an expensive, inconvenient process that would. Busy family home owners also can’t really rely on everyone to treat the flooring with the respect it deserves. That’s not a big deal with Hybrid since the flooring is highly durable, stain resistant and 100% waterproof.
Get Quality Without the Headache
Mistreatment is a serious concern if the flooring is particularly fragile, expensive or prone to damage. With Hybrid, if one tile or plank is damaged it can be easily replaced with an undamaged piece. This is often ideal in a busy family home installation where heavy objects or pets may damage a single piece or section of flooring. With Hybrid, you likely won’t have to completely refloor the room.
The durability is also a big plus. Our families aren’t always the easiest on the flooring. Water spills or other liquid mishaps can cause serious damage or lead to mould growth on flooring or underlayment, but that risk is dramatically reduced if one of Woodland Lifestyle’s Hybrids are installed.
