What Makes Luxury Vinyl Waterproof?
A water resistant floor is not the same as one that is waterproof. 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 soak through to the core. 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.
