Whether it’s your pets scampering across the floor after an afternoon in the park or the spills that always seem to happen around your toddler, you need waterproof flooring that can handle everything that happens in your home.
However, just because you’re looking for tough flooring doesn’t mean that you want to make sacrifices when it comes to their looks.
You need flooring that matches your decor, gives you tons of style options and lends your home a high-end look — in any room in your home. You’re also on the hunt for flooring that’s easy to install, safe, and will last for years to come.
But is finding all of that really possible?
With SolidTech, Mohawk’s premiere waterproof flooring line, it absolutely is.
Mohawk is one of the most trusted brands in the flooring industry, and after this post, it won’t be hard to understand why.
Read on to learn more about what makes Mohawk SolidTech the top choice for so many families.
Before we get into the specific reasons why you should choose SolidTech for your home, let’s first make sure you understand what it is.
Though designed to look like real hardwood or stone, Mohawk SolidTech is actually a completely unique luxury vinyl flooring system, the parent category is called LVT (Luxury Vinyl Tile). The sub-categories are so numerous it can get confusing fast, some may refer to it as LVP, the “P” for plank, however SolidTech is a LVT with the sub-category of SPC (Stone Plastic Composite), which is really in reference to the core. The core is SPC and the top layer is a LVT.
The planks are much wider than most, and come with a low-frequency pattern repetition to make it look exactly like real hardwood — but without all the hassle. It comes with an All Pet warranty, too. This means it’s perfect for a home with lots of four-legged friends.
You can use this flooring option anywhere in your home, even including your basement,bathroom, and mudroom. We suggest putting it in your entire home ;)!
If you’ve ever tried to fix a water-damaged floor on your own, you know that it’s usually a complete nightmare.
And even after those hours of work? Your floor still doesn’t look as good as it did before the water damage hit.
SolidTech Mohawk flooring has helped you to avoid this problem by creating floors that aren’t just water-resistant but are instead completely waterproof.
So, how does it work?
First of all, the planks come complete with Uniclic Technology, which is a glueless locking system that keeps tension strong between the floor planks. This means that the joint will trap any liquid that ends up on the floor on the surface — instead of slipping in between the cracks.
Mohawk also uses pressed bevels. This means that the edges of the planks are completely covered in a protective coating. This prevents any kind of liquid or moisture from reaching the core.
You get three amazing layers of protection against water damage. SolidTech flooring is even hurricane-proof!
One of the biggest reasons why countless homeowners choose Mohawk SolidTech for their floors?
Because it offers unmatched durability.
First of all, it’s naturally stain-resistant, which means you’ll be able to spend less time cleaning and more time doing the things you love. To keep it clean, all you need to do is sweep or use a wet mop on it every once in a while.
Additionally, SolidTech Mohawk flooring is scratch-resistant and stands up against scuffs and other indentation marks.
In fact, it’s 50% denser than your average composite flooring. This means less stressing on your floor and more living in your house.
It can also maintain its dimensional stability even in extreme heat and sudden changes in temperature. This is especially thanks to the waterproof and odor-proof Rigid Core of the flooring. Even though this vinyl floor is much more resistant to heat than most others, they still say to not use a steamer on this floor.
We know you want your home to not just look its best, but also to be a reflection of your personal style.
You don’t want to have to feel like you’re limited in your flooring options — and with SolidTech, you don’t have to.
You’ll have countless color and even texture options with SolidTech so that you can get the perfect match for the room you’re renovating.
The Revelance (also know as Revella) styles come in nine different shades, from the light grey Anise to the dark Tea Time. Plus, the Revelance shades also come complete with a unique finish that will make your flooring even more durable for years to come.
You may also be interested in the Grandwood (also known as Galvyn), which comes with 10 stunning, modern finishes that are ideal for those looking for lighter shades.
For those who love wide range of colors using shades in their flooring design, we suggest the Variations (also known as Vershire) range. You can choose from four different patterns including Shadow Wood, which offers a variety of browns, and Silver Shadows, which offers lots of greys.
True Design (also known as True Vision) has an EIR (Embossed in Registered) finish, which means the texture of the surface matches the look of the grain pattern. True Design will have a more realistic wood look than most other products out there, a good choice if the vinyl flooring you have been looking at appears plastic-like to you.
Those who design SolidTech’s style did not forget those who enjoy the look of stone, but are not a big fan of the maintenance. If you are one of the many people looking for a waterproof vinyl floor that has the appearance of a stone tile, be sure to browse the Blended Tones (some stores have it labeled as Infused Beauty) collection.
If you’re anything like most homeowners, then we know that you dread the thought of the installation process when it comes to your new flooring.
However, you’ll be relieved to find out that SolidTech’s installation process isn’t as complicated as you’ve feared — whether you’re doing it on your own or hiring someone else to handle it.
The UniClic MultiFit technology that we mentioned earlier doesn’t just help you to keep out water. It also makes the installation process a snap (and we mean that quite literally!) You’ll know everything is installed correctly when you feel it click into place.
You can install your SolidTech flooring over glued down vinyl flooring, ceramic tiles, and VCT. Just make sure that you do remove carpeting, cushion vinyl, hardwood, and anything not flat and adhered well before you install your new waterproof vinyl flooring.
Best of all?
It’s completely fine to walk on your new Mohawk SolidTech floors as soon as the installation process is complete!
Many people don’t even bother to consider whether or not their flooring is safe to use in their homes.
Instead, they focus entirely on the look, feel, and durability of their flooring.
However, some flooring materials contain Volatile Organic Compounds, or VOCs for short. In addition to releasing emissions that are harmful to the environment, VOCs can also pose serious risks to your health — and to the health of your pets.
Mohawk SolidTech flooring has been tested numerous times to be certain that they are safe to use in your home.
It’s even FloorScore Certified, meaning that it’s met third-party requirements for safe levels of VOCs.
You can rest easy knowing that everyone in your home will be safe with SolidTech flooring from Mohawk.
Of course, we understand that once you’ve invested in your Mohawk vinyl plank flooring, you want to do everything possible to keep it in great shape.
As we’ve mentioned, maintenance with SolidTech is simple. Still, there are a few simple rules you should follow in order to extend the lifespan of your flooring and ensure it looks its best.
First of all, clean up any spills as quickly as you can. When you do wash your floor, use only a nonabrasive, PH neutral cleaner. When possible, aim to do a spot treatment as opposed to cleaning the whole floor.
If you do decide to vacuum your flooring, we suggest avoiding one that has a beater bar.
When you’re ready to put down furniture in the room, or if you want to switch up the position of the furniture you already have, don’t drag it across the floors. Instead, just lift and carry it to its new spot. You may also want to consider getting small floor protectors to put under heavy furniture or sofa/chair legs.
If you follow these tips, we know you’ll be able to enjoy your flooring for years to come.
