If you have any rooms
in your home that are prone to humidity, dampness, or spills, as most
homeowners do, then waterproof flooring makes perfect sense. It's
beneficial if you have children or pets. If you've never considered
these flooring options for your home, there's no better time to find
out more about them.
are an excellent addition to rooms like basements, bathrooms,
laundries, and kitchens, where dampness and spills are an expected
part of life. A common question is whether water-resistant flooring
is just as good in these areas. Here are some things to consider
about that question.
The most significant
difference between “waterproof” and “water resistance” is the
amount of time you have to clean up messes when they happen.
Water-resistant materials give you up to about 72 hours to dry the
flooring before it begins to soak up with moisture. However, when a
floor covering is waterproof, no damage ever comes from the moisture,
dampness, spills, or even flood-like conditions, so it’s much more
protective in the end.
When your durable
flooring offers complete protection against water damage, you’ll
have peace of mind like never before. You can extend that peace of
mind by adding waterproof floors to every room, especially if you
have pets or children. Knowing your hallways and bedrooms is just as
protected as your basement and kitchen is a comforting thought.
When it comes time to
install your waterproof flooring, the process is generally quick and
easy. Waterproof luxury vinyl, for instance, is an easy to install
floor covering that adds gorgeous visuals, durability, and an
excellent lifespan. It's a perfect choice for every room, so be sure
to ask about it when visiting us.
