We put new sheet vinyl in two rooms and a hall and it's

I will never use vinyl flooring again. Removed some 10 year old stuff and
couldn't believe the plastic smell underneath it after 10 years. Must have
been stinking up the house all that time with a vinyl odor that people just
got used to and accepted as normal. We replaced it with laminate after
doing a smell test.
