Vinyl vs Carpet

When looking to improve on cleanliness and hygiene, it is important to assess surfaces and textures. Materials that have long been the norm may not be adequate for infection control, and better alternatives are available.

Vinyl vs Carpet
  • When compared to carpet, it is clear that a smooth vinyl surface harbours less dirt & is more hygienic.
  • Polyflor vinyl flooring products feature smooth, resilient surfaces that are easier to clean than textile-based floor coverings.
  • Vinyl flooring has long been the preferred choice in the healthcare sector, with carpet already removed from clinical settings.

Whether you are looking to update a healthcare setting or not, introducing vinyl as an alternative to carpet is the perfect way to increase hygiene and reduce the spread of infection.
