Water resistance in flooring means that the particular element of flooring has been designed to withstand water better than it normally would. The aluminum oxide coating most floors have is close to waterproof, but the seams or gaps between planks aren’t, so the floor itself is not waterproof. Waterproof flooring on the other hand features a waterproof surface and watertight gaps between the planks, so they can handle anything from a small spill to your laundry machine overflowing.
Waterproof flooring comes with several different benefits. Not only will you get time back from your weekly cleaning routine, but you also no longer have to worry about accidentally missing a spill or mess. Waterproof flooring creates a watertight seal between your floors and subfloors, so accidental messes will not cause long-term damage. Waterproof flooring is also a hypoallergenic option because there is nowhere for dust or dirt to hide, and because it does not absorb moisture, there is nowhere for bacteria to thrive and grow.
Below are a few different waterproof flooring options to consider for your home.
Luxury Vinyl Flooring
Invincible H2O is a great choice for areas with moisture because it is totally waterproof. Also, Invincible H2O planks and tiles will never expand or contract under moist conditions. Invincible H2O offers “tough as nails” durability.
Water Resistant Carpet
Tigressá H2O has a patented thermoplastic backing that acts as a moisture barrier. It repels all liquids so that they never reach the subfloor, and this gives you more time to wipe away any spills on the surface. The backing also protects against the growth of harmful mold and mildew. Even though the backing is extremely strong, it remains lightweight, flexible, and easy to install.
Although laminate flooring may not be completely waterproof, it does feature durable water resistant properties. We carry water resistant Armstrong laminate floors, including the Audacity collection and Architectural Remnants. These water resistant laminate floors come in styles that reflect the latest trends in wood look flooring.
