Advantages of Rubber Flooring

Home / Products / Advantages of Rubber Flooring
  • Durability: Rubber flooring is strong, tough, and resilient against variety of conditions.
  • Low Maintenance: It will be a bit easier other than taking care of hardwood floor or carpets. You can vacuum, sweep or mop to clean up like you would with any other floor.
  • Ergonomic: The spongy, flexible nature of rubber provides a more supportive surface for standing and walking for long periods of time. This makes it a smart choice for active families, seniors, and those who are rehabilitating injuries. You can increase the softness of your rubber floor by purchasing tiles that have a cork, fabric, or foam-rubber backing.
  • Water Resistant: Rubber flooring is like a virtual force field against moisture. It’s non-porous, meaning that basic liquid spills wont be able to penetrate or damage it. This makes it a smart choice for bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms. If you install rubber flooring tiles in your basement (below grade), you might need to also install a vapor barrier to keep moisture from seeping in from underneath.
  • Sound Barrier: By using thicker rubber tiles, you can create a significant sound barrier between floors in your home. The combination of density and elasticity can reduce noise from walking and playing by up to 18 decibels.
  • Style Choices: Rubber flooring advancements have brought us countless color and pattern options. Manufacturers are able to create vibrant or even neon colors for bold flooring designs. They can also replicate the marbling and speck patterns you see in natural stone materials. Then, you can choose between a polished, matte, or textured finish.
  • Fire and Burn Resistant: This material is resistant to burns left from cigarette butts and other small heat sources. It is also non toxic, and will not release noxious fumes into the air in case of fire.
