Dirt Resistant Flooring Options You Should Consider for Your Home

dust resistant hardwood flooring

There are three main reasons why your home floor is constantly being invaded by dirt:

  1. The tiny debris outside that gets stuck in the soles of your shoes
  2. Irregularly cleaning the floors of your home
  3. Activities done by your children or pets

With all these movement happening in your home, you want a floor that can handle all these types of traffic. Generally, any flooring that has a flat and smooth surface makes for a perfect candidate if you want to get rid of dirt immediately. The difficulty, however, does not lie in its cleaning process, because cleaning their surfaces is very simple, but comes from choosing the right one for your lifestyle.

Hardwood Flooring

Hardwood is beautiful, long-lasting, and brings a warm accent in any room. It comes in various types of wood and can be painted over, giving you limitless possibilities with your home design. It is also not the cheapest flooring option out there. Hardwood, however, is susceptible to water damages and darkens as the years go by.

Stone Flooring

It is nearly indestructible and also brings a variety of stones with different lines, cuts, and patterns. The downsides of this flooring is that it is cold and hard on the feet and can be very expensive.

Tile Flooring

From all the types of flooring, tiles have the widest selection when it comes to color, shape, size, cut, and pattern. It is durable, moisture and stain-resistant, and the easiest to maintain. However, tiles are also cold and hard under your feet and can be very tricky when it needs to be repaired.

Laminated Flooring

Affordable, durable, scratch-resistant, and easy to maintain – these are just some of the many features laminated flooring possesses. It comes with a wide range of colors and designs, and can be installed over old flooring. It is also affordable and can be installed through do-it-yourself-methods, making it a home friendly choice. However, laminated flooring has one disadvantage – it cannot be refinished once it is damaged.

Vinyl Flooring

It is inexpensive, durable, and cozy under the soles. It is one of the most low maintenance floorings available and it is easy to install. Sadly, just like hardwood flooring, vinyl flooring cannot withstand being exposed to too much moisture and may loosen once the liquid comes in contact with its glue.

Linoleum and Marmoleum

Some of the best features of this type of flooring come from its materials and options. It is biodegradable, hygienic, anti-static, durable, environmentally friendly, and comes in an array of colors to choose from. Sadly, these types of flooring can be porous and need to be waxed or polished from time to time. This flooring may be durable, but once it is damaged, it is difficult to repair.
