Why SPC flooring is more used in engineering decoration than home decoration

2021/04/26

There has been a long discussion about whether the SPC flooring is suitable for home decoration. Now we analyze why the SPC flooring used in home decoration is not as good as used in engineering decoration. Let's talk about why the SPC flooring has not been popularized in home decoration.

1. SPC flooring is sometimes called PVC flooring, this name is easy to cause misunderstanding. When it comes to PVC, people think more of plastic. Many people will confuse PVC flooring with PVC pipe. Some of plastic material contains toxic substances and is harmful to human body. But PVC flooring and plastic are not the same thing at all. PVC can also be called polyvinyl chloride. Stone plastic does not contain toxic substances such as formaldehyde and benzene, and there is no radiation. It is a green decoration material and will not cause harm to human body.

2. People have higher requirements for home decoration flooring, which is not only safe and environmental protection, but also can be used for a long time. SPC flooring  is just used in engineering decoration at the begining, with low price, convenient installation, no odor, no formaldehyde, and good waterproof and wear-resistant performance. It is very suitable for office, shopping malls, schools and other places with a lot of people. So we are not used to the SPC flooring at home, but using wood flooring and laminate flooring.

3. The application time of SPC flooring in home decoration is still very short. At present, there is not much long-term use to produce word-of-mouth effect, and we know too little about it, compared with the long-term use of wood flooring and laminate flooring, which two kinds of flooring basically occupy 80% of the home decoration market. We are also used to use these two kinds of flooring.
