What You Want to Know About Waterproof Floors

Waterproof flooring allows you to put fashion back into areas that were previously off limits to design such as kitchens and baths. Waterproof vinyl planking and laminate comes in a variety of widths, lengths, and colors. Let us help you think outside the box for not just the problem areas, but the entire house. Do you have children or pets? These floorings are perfect for you.

If you’ve decided to research waterproof floors, we want you to know the most important facts about the materials. Not only will you have peace of mind about water damage, but you’ll also know that you’re protected from scratches, scuffs, dings, and fading. The material offers a wealth of other benefits as well, so there’s no need to limit the installation of this material to laundry rooms and bathrooms only. The truth is, it can be incredibly beneficial in every space.

For those having researched for very long at all, you've likely heard the term WPC. This is an industry acronym that stands for “wood plastic composite” and offers excellent protection against spills and other water issues. Even though the word “wood” is in the title, there aren’t any real wood materials used in the creation of this flooring. Instead, wood by-products are used, such as wood pulp and resin, which is then combined with composites to help lock everything together and offer the protection for which it’s so well known.

Waterproof floors are constructed to offer complete protection against dampness, humidity, spills, leaks, and sometimes, even flood conditions. These luxury vinyl planks are constructed in layers that provide stability and functionality in every room. Even heavy amounts of traffic are no match for these materials, as you’ll quickly find out, and with a lifespan that averages 25 to 30 years, we think you’ll be pleased with the amount of time they offer.

The installation of your waterproof flooring is a quick and easy process, as is cleaning and maintenance. Once you sweep up any loose debris, you may only need to use a dust mop to make them shine. However, if deeper cleaning becomes necessary, a mop dampened with warm, soapy water will often provide just the relief you need for showroom-perfect floors.
