Homeowners are sometimes confused at the terminology used to describe floors like these. Still, we want to offer a bit of clarity as to the difference between water-resistant and waterproof flooring. The most significant difference is that with waterproof flooring, you have more time to clean up messes and spills, preventing a lot of damage.
Waterproof flooring can do so much
When you have waterproof floors in place, you are protected against spills, accidents, and in some cases, even flood-like conditions, without any worry of taking on water damage. These floors are created to withstand all of this and more, to leave you with great-looking floors that will serve you for years.
Water-resistant materials do offer some protection, but with a time limit of about 72 hours. If the spill sits on the surface for a more extended period, then the damage could occur. Waterproof laminate flooring is new to the industry; it was previously water-resistant.
Since products like waterproof vinyl flooring are created to be utterly impervious to water, you can confidently install them in basements, laundry rooms, bathrooms, and foyers, with complete confidence. You'll never have to worry about the issues that can sometimes come up in these spaces that will ever create the need to replace your flooring.
