Will the luxury vinyl flooring market expand?

Will the luxury vinyl flooring market expand?

Indeed, it will. It will also diminish.

This is because luxury vinyl flooring market contains minuscule openings that allow air to circulate. 

So, when the air is humid, it expands; when the air is dry, it contracts.

Simple enough to prevent.

All you need to do is acclimate the luxury vinyl tile or plank pieces. Acclimation will allow the flooring to adapt to its new surroundings. 

For example, the goods could be kept at a significantly different temperature than your residence.

Have the product delivered a few days before installation. Then arrange the pieces side by side in the room where they will be installed.

Acclimation lasts 48-72 hours. The room should be climate-controlled, with no excessive air conditioning or heat.

What happens if you do not acclimate?

If properly put, this vinyl will last more than 20 years. However, without proper acclimation, the floor will buckle or gap.

Luxury vinyl plank or tile is often put as a floating floor. Unfortunately, even the smallest movement will throw the floor off balance and cause havoc with the clicking mechanism.

You may also void your warranty. Most manufacturers are now regaining acclimation. If this is not done, all protections will be lost.
