Rubber flooring is a type of resilient flooring, and therein lies its most obvious advantages. Like other resilient materials, namely vinyl and linoleum, rubber flooring provides a durable, easy-to-clean surface that's suitable for hard-wearing environments, such gyms, basements, rec rooms, playrooms, and laundry and utility areas. Here are some other specific advantages of rubber tile flooring:
Perhaps the most commonly touted benefit of rubber flooring is the fact that it is strong, tough, and resilient under a variety of conditions. Depending on the type of tile used and the environment it is installed in, a properly cared for rubber floor may last 20 years or more.
Rubber flooring can be very easy to care for. Synthetic rubber flooring is generally more stain-resistant than natural rubber. Some types can be polished with a water-soluble wax to make it more resistant to damage and discoloration, but wax must be stripped and reapplied periodically, creating its own maintenance needs. Cleaning rubber flooring generally requires no more than a damp mop (never wet). If you use a cleaning product, check it out with the manufacturer first, as harsh detergents can damage some flooring.
