Stone Plastic Composite (SPC) hybrid flooring is the most widely preferred form of flooring today. This particular flooring model is a relatively new addition to the flooring category and has won people’s hearts in a very short time. Owing to their durability, versatility and the stunning aesthetic appeal they impart to the floors, they are the perfect choice to make any residential setting beautiful. SPC flooring can be done at an affordable price anywhere in Australia. Since so many flooring options are available today, one might be wondering what sets hybrid flooring apart while compared to other available options in the market.
Here are some of the reasons behind the immense popularity of SPC flooring across the world.
Since the top layer of hybrid floors is composed of extremely resilient substances such as Aluminum Oxide (UV protected), it enables them to endure scratches and dust and remain resilient to dents and cracks. Even in commercial setups having high foot traffic, they remain resilient. Additionally, when it comes to residential settings with small kids and pets, hybrid floors are the most preferred mode due to their unyielding core technology that is resistant to stains and scratches. Also, hybrid floors are adaptable to the extreme temperature variations of Australia. They do not shrink/expand under severe sunlight, unlike certain other ineffectual modes of flooring.
2. Easy to Maintain
Hybrid floors require little to no maintenance apart from occasional vacuuming while most of the other flooring options demand special care and often require advanced equipment to do the cleaning. However, keeping the dust level of any floor under control by regularly sweeping the floor is ideal. Also, there is no need to apply extra wax or polishes on hybrid floors for cleaning. They demand minimal effort and time for maintenance from the occupants’ part.
In households with children and pets, this is the most desired feature for a floor, since many liquid stains and other watery substances are bound to pour onto it. In the case of traditional flooring options, this water can seep through the floor and generate crevices over time. The water-resistant core panel and a shield-layer on the top of hybrid floors make them resistant to liquids. This feature of SPC hybrid flooring makes them fit for rooms exposed to high moisture levels and rooms like kitchens, laundries, and dining areas that are vulnerable to spillage.
4. Aesthetic Appeal
With the aid of superior UV technology, hybrid floors mimic the texture, quality and edges of original timber in order to impart stunning looks to the floor that resembles traditional hardwood. They are also available in wide-ranging colours and styles, thanks to the cutting-edge printing technology used in the making process. These designs are tailor-made to mimic the authentic Australian oak timbers, and therefore, hybrid floors would be the perfect pick for commercial settings with a lot of foot traffic.
Since SPC floors are made from a unique blend of plastic and limestone (in some cases, wood), they are cheap and affordable. Also, the technology used in SPC flooring is very user friendly, and one can install the flooring on their own with minimal fuss.
