Waterproof vs. water-resistant flooring
If you need protection from water damage, you might wonder about the differences between waterproof floors and a water-resistant option. We will look at that comparison in today's post, so read along to find out what you might not have known.
Are water-resistant materials enough?
There is one primary difference between waterproof and water-resistant options, but it is of the utmost importance. Water-resistant floors will allow you about 72 hours to clean up dampness, humidity, and spills without taking on damage, but waterproof floors will never take on damage.
This difference might seem small, especially if you think you’ll never miss an opportunity to clean up messes, but what if something happens while you’re away on vacation or out of town for business? The fact is waterproof flooring gives you the peace of mind that you are always protected, whether you’re home or not.
Both materials offer a wealth of visuals, making them perfect for match various décor options, and added durability in the form of wear layers, so you’re more protected against daily wear. For added protection, you can also use area rugs or runners in spaces that are heavily traveled.
