The Benefits of a PVC Floor
Advantages abound. Are you moving, renovating or just want a new floor?. This article will help you make an informed decision when choosing a new floor:
1. Prevents noise pollution
Polyvinyl chloride, short for PVC, is the chemical formula that makes up a PVC floor board. This probably doesn’t say much. What is important to know is that a PVC floor belongs to the elastic floor coverings due to this formula.
In other words: PVC flooring has a sound dampening effect thanks to the material structure. This comes in handy in busy households, but also in apartments, to avoid noise pollution for your downstairs neighbors.

So keep this in mind when buying this type of floor and, if necessary, ask for flooring advice from an interior designer.
