Waterproof flooring: is it necessary?

When a homeowner asks if waterproof flooring is a necessity, we want them to know that there are a couple ways of looking at it. If you live in an area that is prone to flooding, then we definitely think it’s a necessity. In that instance, it’s like an extra level of insurance against flooring loss. On the other hand, even if you don’t live in such an area, it’s still a really good idea, and we’re going to explain why.

Sharp Carpet + Hardwood & Tile has been serving homeowners since 1993 with a variety of floor coverings and services for their homes.

More about waterproof flooring

Another reasons to choose waterproof flooring is that major accidents can happen at any time that can cause extensive damage to your floors. No homeowner wants to have to replace expensive flooring any sooner than necessary, and this is one way to avoid that. Waterproof flooring can stand up to large spills, appliances that overflow, and pipes that burst in the winter. We know these things don’t happen every day, but they are often a possibility. That’s where this particular floor covering can give you great peace of mind.

Some homeowners believe that waterproof flooring means drab, dreary styles that you “just have to live with”, but that’s not entirely true. Of course, you can purchase some flooring that certainly looks this way, but there’s so much more to choose from, especially in luxury vinyl. Tile is another great choice for waterproof flooring, and can even be used inside the shower. Ask your flooring specialist about all the different types of waterproof flooring available in-store.

Given the very nature of this flooring, we can assure you it’s an easy surface to clean and maintain. In most cases, a broom or vacuum can take up any loose dirt and debris, and a damp mop can do away with the rest of the mess. Your floors will be looking like new for years to come.
