If you’ve never experienced waterproof flooring in your home before, you truly don’t know what you’re missing. While most people only entertain the thought of installing this flooring when there is imminent risk of water damage, others know it has far more to offer than protection. It can be a gorgeous addition to any room and adds functionality that you’ll have to feel for yourself to believe. We will let you in on a little secret though. It’s worth it.

The truth is, there’s no better time than the present to look into waterproof flooring installation. Accidents happen every day, from plumbing malfunctions, to leaks, to major spills. If you don’t have this floor covering in place already, you’ll certainly have the opportunity to replace it with the real thing. Water damage can also affect more rooms than the one it happened in. One burst pipe, for instance, could easily ruin the flooring in 2 to 4 adjoining rooms, quickly and easily.
The construction of this floor covering shows how dedicated manufacturers are to providing truly waterproof flooring. With a waterproof backing layer such as cork or rubber, the groundwork is laid. From there, a core is put in place to assure that should water make its way in between the pieces, there will be nothing to soak it up and create damage. Finally, an image layer and protective wear layer are added for stunning good looks and ultimate protection. You will find these floors show fewer scratches, scuffs, and dings and last a long time before showing the effects of repeated wear and tear.
As you might imagine, waterproof flooring is easy to clean and maintain. For regular everyday cleaning, only a broom and mop are necessary. Tougher messes require a bit of soapy water, but that’s generally all it takes to keep these floors looking like new for a long time to come.
