Waterproof Flooring Options
There is a common misunderstanding that all luxury vinyl is made to be water proof. As much as we would want that to be true, it just is not. We have a solution for you though at Santa Cruz Carpet One Floor & Home, because we made sure to carry luxury vinyl brands that are waterproof. Water proof flooring is not just limited to luxury vinyl, but when it comes to durability and functionality, it’s the best choice.
How Does Waterproof Vinyl Flooring Work?
Luxury vinyl gets its waterproof qualities from their core. When manufactures make water proof flooring they use materials that do not absorb moisture like limestone dust and PVC composite. Homeowners need to understand though, that just because the flooring itself is waterproof, that does not mean your subfloor is.
You need to know before you buy your new floors that there is a difference between waterproof floors and water resistant floors. Waterproof floors are made to resist water from their surface all the way to their backing. Water resistant flooring can only withstand water from the surface, and it’ll eventually absorb it if not taken care of. Going back to your subfloor not being waterproof, it is always important to clean up any water related spills or moisture as to prevent your subfloors from being damaged.
You can install waterproof and water resistant flooring in every room of your home. That means you can install luxury vinyl in rooms like your basement, mudroom, kitchen and even bathroom.
