When to choose waterproof flooring

You might think waterproof flooring is a bit over the top for most homes. However, if you really stop to think about it, it’s actually more like extra insurance. With a floor that is completely impervious to water damage, you can let you mind be at ease like never before, especially if you live in an older home, or near a natural water source.

You’re not locked into "drab" with this selection either, as there are plenty of designs and styles to choose from. You will probably even find something that matches your existing décor, with hardwood and natural stone looks available.

A few facts about waterproof flooring

You might be wondering if waterproof flooring and water resistant flooring are the same thing. We can assure you, they are not. Water resistant is just that, a resistance to water. Spills, moisture and humidity will take much longer to affect floors that are resistant, however it will eventually succumb, and that’s where problems can ensue.

Waterproof, on the other hand, is completely oblivious to spills, moisture, humidity, standing water and even flooding. In fact, if a water emergency occurs, you will probably be able to take this flooring up, dry it off and place it right back on your floors, with no problems to the flooring itself. It really is the only flooring that can give you complete and total peace of mind.

In the event that water does become an issue, you can also rest assured that you won’t have to worry about mold or mildew. The backing of this floor covering is usually completely resistant to their growth. You won’t have to worry about that foul, musty smell either, since no bacteria that creates it will have the chance to fester.

As you might expect, waterproof flooring is an absolute cinch to clean up. In most cases, a broom sweeping followed by a damp mop are all you’ll ever need to keep things looking like new.
