Luxury vinyl flooring in Lakewood Ranch, FL from LG Kramer Flooring

Is the wear layer of luxury vinyl flooring critical?

The wear layer with your luxury vinyl plank flooring can be a critical benefit. If you have a busy home, it can make all the difference in your wear protection.

This layer works to ensure your luxury vinyl flooring isn't prematurely worn out. And they're customizable too, which means you can get the protection you want and need.

What is a wear layer?

A wear layer sits above the image layer, with a protective top layer. It keeps scratches, dents, dings, and stains at bay.

These layers can be as thin as 6mil and as thick as 20mil, and even higher. Luxury vinyl flooring offers different thicknesses to give you the protection you want and need from your floors.

Which wear layer should you choose?

If you have pets or children, thicknesses from 12 to 20 mil are often a reasonable choice. This helps the floors stand up under constant travel and pressure.

Use only non-acidic cleaners to clean your floors as necessary. And be sure to steer clear of steam cleaners. Keeping your luxury vinyl flooring neat and clean can enhance the look and lifespan of your floors.

Because of a wear layer

The wear layer does a beautiful job of protecting luxury vinyl flooring and the visual layer. And because of that, you can expect an excellent look for years to come.
