Waterproof vs Water-Resistant Flooring

Know the difference to pick the right floor for you.

Waterproof flooring can withstand a large amount of water and moisture without causing damage. It can be installed in every room in your home including bathroom, kitchen, basement, and laundry room.
Water-resistant flooring means it can handle a small amount of water for a short period of time and requires immediate clean up to be protected from any long-term damage. It’s a little more forgiving than other types of flooring as long as spills are handled as they happen.

Waterproof Flooring Options

Waterproof Vinyl Plank Flooring

The best waterproof flooring option is Luxury Vinyl Plank Flooring because it’s considered to be a 100% waterproof floor. This type of flooring comes to the rescue when you are worried about accidental spills made by kids or pets or any high-moisture area in your home. When it comes in contact with water, the planks will not curl up at the edges and the color will not fade or change. All Luxury Vinyl planks have this waterproof feature including WPC and SPC Vinyls.
In addition to being 100% waterproof, Luxury Vinyl planks are also scratch-resistant, stain-resistant, fade-resistant, and anti-slip. The realistic wood-look on vinyls make them the most popular hardwood alternative with bonus features and a lower price tag. You can’t go wrong with luxury vinyl; it provides that expensive wood-look and is an extremely durable, life-proof floor.
Note: Even though this floor is 100% waterproof, it’s not recommended for use in outdoor areas and is not warrantied for outdoor elements. Also, immediate clean up of spills is still recommenced for the longevity of your floor.
