Underfoot flooring takes pride in the fact that our SPC flooring is 100% recyclable and ecofriendly which is really important given the pressure on society to reduce their carbon footprint and become more environmentally aware. In fact, SPC flooring is the only flooring option which can be recycled which has definitely increased the popularity of this type of flooring as it is becoming a trend to change and adapt to a more sustainable way of life; not only with flooring but with lifestyles as well. This makes SPC flooring very attractive which sits as a more favourable choice when deciding on choosing a new floor for your home.
As SPC flooring is so durable, it will last much longer compared to other alternatives like carpet and laminate. This has led a surge in office, shopping malls and new builds using this type of flooring. This means that you haven’t got to worry about the cost of replacing your flooring anytime soon, especially when Underfoot Flooring have a 25 year domestic warranty and a 10 year commercial warranty for this type of flooring. Not only due to the sustainability factor but it reduces noise. This is perfect if you are in a flat as you haven’t got to worry about the people on the floors above or below you.
As SPC is waterproof, it can handle moisture better than any other flooring so it is a much more sustainable option for you if you have children or pets. Not only will your floor last much longer but it will also save you the worry of spillages not being cleaned up quickly. In addition, due to the elements SPC flooring is made up of, you won’t have to worry about the deformation of the planks, nor will you have to worry about mold growing under the floor. This is because the floor boards have micro bevelled edges which makes them fit seamlessly together. This is perfect if you have pets or young children, especially as the top coat on the boards are scratch resistant.
