Professional Floor Installation matters – the performance of a new floor depends on it.

You have a host of choices when it comes to new flooring – material, style, color, and more – really, the only limit is your imagination. Whatever flooring you choose for your home, who installs it makes all the difference.
Doing it yourself may seem like a great way to save money (and they do make it seem so easy on the home improvement shows), but the time spent and risk of mistake can be costly. This also goes for warehouse or discount dealers; they often take shortcuts or use inexperienced installers, so achieving the look you want or long-term value can be a costly proposition.
A professional accredited flooring technician has years of experience. YouTube videos may be helpful, but they aren’t going to provide you with the details necessary for completing such a difficult project. Only a professional has the knowledge and experience to guarantee a job well done.
Even the most elegant Laminate ,vinyl Mkeka wa Mbao or Linoleum flooring can appear cheap if the installation isn’t completed properly. Rather than settling for a mediocre installation, rely on professionals to make sure that your home looks its best.
There are many steps during a flooring installation that need to be completed correctly and skillfully for a successful outcome. We are committed in providing the installers with the best training so they in turn, will provide customers with the highest standards of workmanship.
A professional team can ensure that your flooring is installed correctly the first time. You won’t have to spend money on fixing loose ends or replacing mismanaged flooring. Rather, you can enjoy your perfect flooring for years to come.
How important is proper installation? So important that your warranty depends on it! Manufacturers know that Vinyl, or laminates can only perform as well as it is installed.
Safeguard your investment
Flooring investment is a major investment when installed properly, it can increase the overall value of your property. This is no small consideration.
As you can imagine, we’ve seen some pretty shoddy work over the years, which is why we feel so strongly about recommending an accredited professional installer.

Why Flooring is Important


Flooring is a significant part of any interior design and can easily make or break your space. It serves as a foundation to your design and can ultimately determine its overall success. Flooring brings the whole room together: Without the right flooring, your room can have design elements in all the right places and still not look right! The floors of a house take the brunt of our everyday activities and are usually the first surfaces to reflect wear and tear.
While our first interaction with a space is visual, the first physical contact a person will have with your space is the flooring. As such it’s important to invest in floors which will keep pace with your daily life and add value while simultaneously infusing your home with a touch of class.
Regardless of which design style you have chosen, selecting a complimentary flooring option is a must. As one of the most used surfaces in our home, flooring is expected to withstand constant use while enduring its transcendent quality. With the vast variety of flooring choices available, it is easy to get carried away and forget about the practical aspects that should be taken into consideration.
Pricing, quality and style are amongst the top researched variances when purchasing flooring. While it is possible to save money upfront by purchasing cheap flooring, it will not last. Nowadays, flooring is viewed as an investment and there are a number of options available for every budget. From hardwood, to laminate, marmoleum and Mkeka wa Mbao™ – Floor Décor Kenya carries them all our underlying goal is durability first price comes second .
Floors are an essential element in interior design and improving the aesthetic appeal of any property. But when it comes to decorating a space, some home and business premises owners make the mistake of focusing only on the ceilings and walls and completely overlooking the flooring.  You do not want to do that. A room’s flooring is its base, too. A high quality floor improves the interior design of a space and brings together all the other elements, including the furniture and wall and ceiling decors.
Looking for superior quality and affordable flooring materials at the right flooring center is therefore important. Home and business owners in East Africa are very privileged to have a reliably flooring store such as Floor Décor Kenya that offers all its clients a wide variety of top quality flooring options for both residential and commercial buildings, offices, Hospitals, Churches, Warehouses, Schools, Hotels and Industries.
Whether you choose to go with durable laminates, or easy to maintain vinyl and marmoleum or the lush turf grass, you’ll find the best of these products at Floor Décor Kenya Showrooms countrywide.

What’s Marmoleum linoleum flooring

What is marmoleum flooring?

Marmoleum is brand of linoleum flooring. Linoleum has existed for over 150 years Manufactured by  Forbo a global  leader in floor covering production.

Marmoleum is Forbo’s brand of linoleum flooring which is a natural flooring product consisting of linseed oil, pine rosin, wood flour, limestone, pigments, and Jute.

Marmoleum contains zero plasticizer and phthalates, Linoleum or Marmoleum flooring is all natural made from 97% natural raw materials.

 

What’s the durability of marmoleum flooring?

15-25 years for large commercial projects. However, because Marmoleum has natural timber/rosin ingredients it will continue to harden with age and can have a life expectancy greater than 40 years.

We don’t recommend installing Marmoleum in bathrooms / wet areas.
Marmoleum is not urine friendly, therefore is not suitable/
however, we suggest using Forbo’s step safety vinyl instead, which, has the best overall wet barefoot slip test results.

Marmoleum can be used in numerous of application that includes:

Floor Décor Kenya Cares about Your Health and Well being with our Original floors with zero cancer causing chemicals

Floor Décor Kenya Cares about Your Health and Well being

Majority of Home Builders and Owners fall prey to unsuspecting developers and businessmen who source substandard flooring materials from some factories in China and Eastern Europe. Some low quality laminates and Vinyl from these regions contain high levels of cancer causing Phthalates and Formaldehyde. Phthalates are mainly used as plasticizers; substances added to plastics to increase their flexibility, durability, transparency and longevity.

It is therefore important for buyers to check the kind of flooring brands used by developers; majority of the developers only care about the selling value and ease of making quick returns on building developments and ignore the consumer and the health risk associated with installing substandard flooring materials.

The debate on the dangers and toxicity of phthalates and formaldehydes has been going on for years. Research has proven to the fact that exposure to phthalates may lead to health problem such as cancer, asthma and allergies, autism, low IQ, fertility problems and neurodevelopment issues, birth defects, learning and memory disorders.

Dangerous volatile organic compounds, a.k.a. VOCs, are the last thing you would want in your home. Because these chemical compounds have a very low boiling point, large numbers of their molecules will evaporate at normal room temperature. The resulting vapor mixes with clean air inside your rooms exposing you and your family to cancer causing chemicals.
