Knowing when to consider waterproof flooring
Many floor coverings come with the "water resistant" title attached, but that is a far cry from actual waterproof luxury vinyl flooring
. When you choose a flooring that is water resistant, that is exactly what you get. The floor does withstand an occasional spill and doesn't react as much too humid conditions. However, it simply isn't waterproof.

The reasons to opt for waterproof flooring might seem obvious. For instance, you would definitely want to choose this floor covering if you live in an area that is prone to flooding. But what else could make a purchase like this make sense?
In reality, all homes are prone to flooding. In some areas, that might be due to an Act of God, heavy downpours and living near a water source. On the other hand, flooding can also happen from inside the house. For instance, if you have a faulty pipe, or if a dishwasher or washing machine malfunctions, then you are definitely going to experience flooding.
How things transpire after that emergency is completely dependent upon the flooring that you have in place. If that flooring happens to be waterproof luxury vinyl, you're in the clear. And isn't that peace of mind that’s worth paying a little extra for?
