Why choose waterproof flooring?

The most common question asked in regards to this flooring is, “Won’t water resistant flooring be good enough?” The answer to that is a resounding, maybe. It really depends on what everyday life looks like at your house.

If there is only you and another adult living in the home, odds are water resistant flooring will be a safe bet. However, if you have young children and pets, or if you have frequent gatherings in your home for friends and family, it might not hold up.

Water resistant flooring works well up to a point. Spills are less likely to soak into your flooring and cleaning them is much easier than some other types of flooring. However, in the event of an accident that goes unnoticed, especially if pipes burst, or if reoccurring spills happen, it will eventually need replacing.

Waterproof flooring, on the other hand, will stand up to just about anything. You’ll never need to worry about any of the factors we just mentioned. Even after a flood, this flooring can simply be taken up, dried thoroughly, and placed right back where it was to begin with. Even the backing of waterproof flooring is made especially to withstand mold and mildew, a common problem when dealing with moisture and humidity in regards to flooring.
