What you need to know about waterproof flooring

Waterproof flooring has many great benefits that make it a perfect choice, no matter what your specific needs. It can be placed in any room of the house and provides the best peace of mind that you could possibly get from any flooring material. Of course, some people might think waterproof flooring is a bit over the top, but we don’t think so. One of the reasons you might have overlooked waterproof flooring in the past was that you might not have understood exactly what it is. So, we’re going to take you through some of the most important aspects.

Waterproof flooring vs. water resistant flooring

We want to let you know, right from the start, that waterproof flooring and water resistant flooring are certainly not the same thing. Water resistant is also touted as if it’s as protective as waterproof, but that isn’t the case. Water resistant flooring can withstand liquid spills and moisture much longer than other materials can. However, since it is not 100% waterproof, the water will eventually soak in and cause problems. This is primarily due to the fact that the core of most water resistant floors is made of wood products. Even if the top and backing layers are made of something else, water and moisture will still damage the core.

100% impervious to water

Waterproof flooring, on the other hand, is just that. 100% impervious to water, spills, accidents, moisture and even flood damage. Flooring that is actually waterproof can even be taken up after a major flood, completely dried, and laid back down again, as if nothing ever happened.

Waterproof flooring won’t compromise your style

Some waterproof flooring is made of 100% rubber and we admit, they leave a little to be desired in the style department. However, many different flooring types now have waterproof options, so you don’t have to compromise on the look you want. In fact, you’re likely to find something that complements your existing décor as if it were made just for you.
