Learn more about waterproof flooring If you have found yourself contemplating whether or not you need waterproof flooring, odds are, you do. In fact, deciding upon waterproof flooring can give you a level of peace of mind you won’t get with any other type of flooring. You see, waterproof is not the same thing as “water resistant” and can withstand much more.
Waterproof flooring can also go where no other flooring can. Even water-resistant floors will eventually become damaged to the point of needing to be replaced if they are subjected to enough water for long periods of time.
You might not be expecting a flood, but it’s better to be prepared than to be caught without. For instance, if you have a basement area that is prone to taking on water, you need waterproof flooring. On the other hand, if you worry that you may have an emergency in your bathroom, kitchen or laundry room, then they are perfect for waterproof flooring as well.
In fact, any room is a good place for this type of flooring. It has a luxurious look that can mimic hardwood, stone and tile and is very easy to install. While it is pricier than some other options, isn’t your peace of mind worth a little more?
First, and most important, waterproof flooring is just that: 100% waterproof. Even in the event of an actual flood, this flooring can be dried and used again, which is something water resistant flooring cannot claim. No more worries about getting to spills or accidents right away. Waterproof flooring withstands it all.
It’s also the perfect choice for areas with high humidity levels, as this flooring will not buckle, crack, swell or contract with changes in humidity or temperature. Its unique construction means that you can place it anywhere water problems tend to occur without worry. Since the backing used in this floor type is foam or natural cork, it is completely resistant to mold and mildew. This is very good news for allergy sufferers who might have had problems with this sort of thing in the past.
