Floors take a lot of hard knocks from us. We spend our lives walking and treading on our flooring. We drop things on the floor. We often spill drinks and water on our kitchen and bathroom floors.
For that reason, when it comes to having new flooring fitted in your home, you need to get the best quality flooring that is able to withstand all of the things that our busy lives with be able to throw at them. Especially water.
If your flooring is not waterproof, then you run the risk of damp forming between tiles or along edges, or even soaking through the floor. This could lead to mold forming in hard to get to places and your flooring becoming warped.
When considering your next floor, waterproof materials should be number one on your shopping list.
One great option that fits the bill is waterproof vinyl.
Waterproof vinyl flooring is a vinyl that is engineered specifically to be 100% waterproof. A high-quality waterproof vinyl floor will be designed with a durable core.
Depending on the composition of waterproof vinyl flooring, it will be called WPC or SPC.
Both SPC and WPC are waterproof, they are both great at hiding imperfections and can be easily installed. Where they differ is that WPC provides a vinyl layer between the top design layer and a core for greater resilience and comfort underfoot.
SPC, on the other hand, has the design layer directly held straight onto the core of the flooring.
If you have a pet, you will want flooring that will withstand any scratches from their claws, as well as providing an easy clean surface for sweeping away stray hairs. Most importantly, you will want your floor to be waterproof because you never know when you may need to clean up toileting accidents.
Waterproof vinyl is the ideal choice for a room such as a bathroom where you are likely to see a lot of water dropping onto the floor whenever someone steps out of the bath or the shower.
The kitchen sees its fair share of spills too. Whether it’s water from the sink, or food from the hob, your vinyl floor will be easy to maintain.
You may be looking at getting a new floor fitted in an area such as your bathroom or kitchen, and you may be wondering whether waterproof vinyl is going to be the right choice for your home.
Without a doubt, when it comes to rooms that are prone to water falling on the floor, a waterproof floor will be very easy to maintain, and more importantly, it will last for a very long time.
There will be no danger of the material rotting through exposure to moisture.
