First of all, let me talk about my views. I have made solid wood flooring, laminate flooring, PVC flooring, and bamboo flooring. I have been doing it for 11 years. I think it should be of some help to you.
First of all, talk about performance, especially formaldehyde content. The content of composite flooring is the highest, about 1.2mg/m3, solid wood flooring and bamboo flooring are better, about 0.6mg/m3.
The pvc floor is more complicated. Every manufacturer says that it is environmentally friendly. In fact, due to process problems, several regular brands, such as Lvshui, which specializes in home improvement, can indeed achieve zero formaldehyde. Small manufacturers, especially domestic ones, can achieve zero formaldehyde. The product cannot be achieved by hot pressing technology, and the addition of adhesives during the production process results in the release of formaldehyde.
Secondly, consumers have doubts about the use of PVC flooring in home furnishings, which is mainly caused by a large number of bottom-end products used in tooling. Some consumers feel that these products are very general after seeing these products. In addition, a large number of domestic wooden flooring manufacturers desperately discredit the home improvement PVC flooring in order to protect their market. Usually people who say that PVC flooring is not good use wood flooring for home furnishings. They can't tell why PVC flooring is not good. They just say it's not good, or they say they can't use the home for commercial pvc flooring.
In fact, when domestic consumers are pursuing solid wood composite flooring, countries such as Europe, the United States, Japan and South Korea have begun to eliminate wooden flooring and use family-specific PVC flooring. Because the performance of pvc flooring, especially home improvement PVC flooring, is much higher than that of traditional wooden flooring.
For example, dimensional stability, if the products of regular manufacturers (such as Lushui, Armstrong, etc.) are placed in a microwave oven, the size will not change.
If you talk about the shortcomings of home improvement PVC flooring, I feel that first, the quality gap between brands is too big; second, the foot feel of home improvement PVC flooring is better than that of composite flooring, not as good as solid wood flooring.
If there are distributors of foreign first-line brands in the local area, it is recommended that buyers install PVC flooring. If there is no first-line brand of pvc flooring, it is recommended to buy solid wood flooring or bamboo flooring. Composite flooring, solid wood composite, etc. are not recommended (especially if there are children or the elderly at home)
