Wet floors are a common occurrence in many households, and especially those with children or pets. Water and moisture can eventually cause significant damage to a floor or carpet and can even shorten its lifespan. Spilled beverages, pet accidents and water from leaking pipes can also cause unsightly stains that detract from the appearance of the flooring — not to mention the entire home.
If you live in Maryland, Virginia or the Washington, D.C., area, METRO FLOORING CONTRACTORS can install a beautiful waterproof floor that resists moisture that can damage other flooring types. As a leading waterproof flooring contractor in the region, you can count on us for high-quality products at affordable prices along with fast, expert installation.
What Is Waterproof Flooring?
Waterproof flooring consists of materials that resist moisture that can otherwise leave stains or cause damage such as mold, mildew, swelling and warping. These floors are durable and easy to clean and maintain.
They’re also an excellent choice if you have kids or pets that tend to be hard on traditional flooring types. Several types of waterproof flooring materials are available for installation in virtually any room in your home.
Waterproof Vinyl Flooring
Vinyl plank flooring is perhaps the most popular waterproof flooring variation due to its wide range of design options. Faux wood vinyl is available for those who prefer the elegance of hardwood flooring, while stone veneer is an exciting choice for those who want to create a natural look and feel. A high-quality vinyl floor is easy to maintain and resists stains, scratches and dents.
Waterproof Laminate Flooring
Laminate flooring has come a long way from the cheap linoleum commonly found in kitchens of yesteryear. Today’s waterproof laminate flooring offers a significant quality upgrade and features a vibrant, luxurious appearance and a wide variety of color options. It’s also less expensive than most vinyl flooring products.
Technically, laminate flooring isn’t 100% waterproof — it’s water-resistant, meaning that standing water could penetrate the fiberboard base and cause warping. That’s why it’s important to wipe up spills as soon as possible.
Waterproof Basement Flooring
The basement is the most vulnerable area in a home when it comes to water infiltration and moisture damage. Several flooring options are available that provide waterproofing benefits and meet appearance requirements.
For instance, engineered vinyl planks and tiles hold up well against moisture and also look great, which is important if you have a finished basement you use for entertaining. If you prefer carpeting, you can select replaceable carpet tiles that absorb less water than wall-to-wall carpets.
