Waterproof flooring is easy to maintain
Chances that a floor will have a shortened
lifespan are lessened when you choose waterproof flooring. You don’t need to
worry about floor damage from faulty plumbing, spills, and muddy shoes.
Waterproof flooring materials include vinyl, laminate, ceramic, and porcelain.
A stone floor is also waterproof as long as it is sealed annually or as needed.
You can find a wide assortment of waterproof floor coverings

Vinyl plank flooring is a pet-friendly and
practical alternative to hardwood flooring. Luxury vinyl is thicker than
standard sheet vinyl. Thus, it can be more deeply embossed, so the wood look is
more realistic. Luxury vinyl tiles also mimic wood as well as stone and
ceramic. Brands with a wood-plastic composite (WPC) or a stone plastic
composite (SPC) core are waterproof. The toughest brands have a 20+ mil
transparent wear layer to protect the plank or tile design. Waterproof vinyl
flooring can be installed anywhere in the home.
Like luxury vinyl, laminate imitates natural
flooring materials. Standard laminate brands won't be damaged by water if the
water is cleaned up immediately. While luxury vinyl tolerates standing water
for long periods, waterproof laminate brands usually repel water for up to 30
hours. After that time, damage may occur if water remains on the floor.
Superior laminate products have an abrasion coefficient rating of AC3. These
products have been tested by an independent entity and approved for areas in
the home that receive heavy foot traffic.
