The backing is the cornerstone of the floor, and it provides a solid foundation. You have three from which to choose. Fiberglass is the most popular backing because it keeps the product lying flat with no curls. Felt feels a little softer and easier on the joints, but it will curl unless the vinyl is glued down permanently. A vinyl sheet with a vinyl backing is ultra high performing and durable.
All vinyl flooring needs are daily sweeping and periodic mopping with a manufacturer-approved cleaner. Avoid wax, shine-promoting products, and they can dull the finish. If you feel you need more shine, talk to your flooring expert.
Installation can be glued down or loose-lay. With the latter, the sheets hover over the subfloor with no glue needed. Subfloors need mainly to be clean, dry, and level.
