We have the waterproof flooring you want and need in your home. It is a common misconception that all luxury vinyl floors are waterproof. Many are just water resistant, which can make a large impact on your home if you are not aware of the difference. We have the experts at Finmark Carpet One Floor & Home in Northridge to sell you the right products that you are looking for. We offer a Carpet One exclusive brand, Invincible H2O, our very own 100% waterproof luxury vinyl floor.
What Makes Luxury Vinyl Waterproof?
Waterproof is not the same as water resistant in many ways. Waterproof floors are made to combat water from their surface all the way to their backing. Water resistant flooring can resist water from the surface but it will eventually become absorbed if not taken care of. It is important to always clean up any water related spills or moisture as to prevent your subfloors from being damaged.
Manufacturers use materials such as limestone dust and PVC composites in the flooring that do not absorb moisture to make luxury vinyl’s core. Luxury vinyl floors won’t buckle, crack, or warp due to being exposed to moisture. You should always keep in mind that just because the flooring itself is waterproof, that does not mean your subfloor is.
You can install waterproof and water resistant flooring in every room of your home. That means you can install luxury vinyl in rooms like your basement, mudroom, kitchen and even bathroom.
