Why Do Some Flooring Warped Or Swollen So Easily?
Recently, there have been some complaints from homeowners who had installed low-quality floorboards to their homes or workplaces. It is even more so during the rainy season we just experienced weeks ago. Within a matter of months, their floors have been warped or swollen up, causing unpleasant bumps in some of the areas of the floor.
This is mainly caused by 3 reasons:
1) Unevenness Or Sloped Of The Base Ground
Before installing, the ground needs to be tested for levelness. If laid on uneven grounds, there is a possibility that air bubbles will be trapped under the board which would result in warping in the long run.
2) Lower Moisture Protection Due To Lower Graded Floor Materials
Because of the mass production in a highly competitive market, many people would go for cheap prices instead of quality. Installing low-quality floors with little moisture protection might eventually result in warping issues.
3) High Humidity In The Room Being Installed
If the room that is being installed is very humid, say, you need to turn on the aircon 24/7, do not go for vinyl floors with poor quality. High humidity in the surrounding will definitely cause warping or swelling in time to come.
Make vinyl floor your long-term investment instead of a short-term purchase. The amount to re-install the flooring again is very costly because it involves retrieving the existing floorboards and replacing it with the new ones. If you are afraid of having your floors swollen up in a few months to a year, choose High End Resilient Flooring (HERF) by EVORICH Flooring instead. It is able to withstand very strong humidity and is 100% waterproof.
