How Waterproof Flooring Works
Luxury vinyl gets it waterproof qualities from its core construction. Waterproof cores are made from materials such as limestone dust and pure PVC. No longer worry about your floors absorbing moisture, it will simply evaporate over time. Just because your flooring is waterproof does not mean your subfloor is waterproof, so you still need to clean up spills, or consider laying down a waterproof barrier between your flooring and subfloor.
There are differences between waterproof floors and water resistant floors. Waterproof floors are made to combat water from their surface all the way to their backing. Water resistant flooring can only resist water from the surface, and it’ll eventually become absorbed if not maintained.
Luxury vinyl is not just popular because of its waterproof qualities, but also for its authentic looks. Hardwood flooring is limited when it comes to where it can be installed. With luxury vinyl you can have the natural and authentic looks of hardwood, and install them anywhere in your home. Unlike hardwood, luxury vinyl will not expand, contract, cup, or buckle due to changes in humidity or exposure to moisture.
You can install waterproof and water resistant flooring in every room of your home. That means you can install waterproof luxury vinyl in rooms like your basement, mudroom, kitchen and even bathroom.
