Sometimes, only waterproof flooring will do

You have probably thought about waterproof flooring at some time or another. If you have been a homeowner for any length of time, it’s likely that you have spilled something on your floors at some point. More than likely, it was on a section of carpet that could not be hidden. Regrettably, things like that just happen sometimes!

It may have started you wondering if there was a better option to the flooring choice you currently have. Well, we have great news: There is!

Waterproof flooring is a great choice for a variety of reasons. Maybe you have small children who are prone to spilling their juice. Your brand new puppy may have other ideas about potty training. Or perhapsyou like to throw parties and some guests aren’t as careful as you’d like them to be.

Waterproof flooring versus water resistant flooring

In each of the situations, waterproof flooring can mean the difference between your peace of mind or lack thereof. You see, unlike some would have you to believe, water resistant is not the same thing as waterproof.

Water resistant simply means that moisture and spills are less likely to soak into your flooring. However, rest assured, if left unattended long enough, they will. Waterproof, on the other hand, can withstand a flood, simply to be dried off and set in place once again.

Waterproof flooring and WPC

When talk turns to waterproof flooring, it’s likely the term WPC (wood plastic composite) will come up.WPC is a flooring material that is made from blending natural woods, such as sawdust, bamboo, peanut hulls and wood pump, with plastic powder. WPC is made even more appealing by the fact that is can be manufactured completely from materials that have been recycled. This is great news for those looking for a more sustainable material option.

Since WPC starts life as a paste, it can literally be shaped into just about anything, including arches and other bent shapes. Additionally, it can be dyed any color you wish,so that your flooring will complement any décor at all.And all the while, in many ways, it can be treated as any wood floor wood be.
