Solid wood flooring is non-waterproof and non- moistureproof, and will mildew when the humidity is high, it is easy to breed bacteria, and it will cause large dimensional changes with temperature changes, and it is greatly affected by weather and humidity and easy to be deformed and warped after water immersion;

The main component of SPC lock flooring is vinyl resin, which has no affinity with water. It will not be damaged and deformed when it is wet. The surface is treated with special antibacterial and antifouling, which can effectively inhibit the breeding of bacteria, and it won’t mildew because of too humidity.

Installation

Solid wood flooring has poor stability and need to keel during installation, which is costly.

SPC lock flooring is easy installation, as long as the locks fit into each other to form an accurate occlusion, you can install it by yourself, greatly reducing the time laying, low installation cost and no glue. In addition, it can be installed directly on the original tiles and directly on the floor without to knock off the old tiles, which is very suitable for the renovation of old houses.
