Waterproof Luxury Vinyl Flooring
Not all luxury vinyl is made to be waterproof. Many homeowners are misled when purchasing luxury vinyl flooring and install it in rooms where moisture can damage the floor over time. We have the experts at McCalls Carpet One Floor & Home to sell you the right products that you are looking for. We offer a Carpet One exclusive brand, Invincible H2O, our very own 100% waterproof luxury vinyl floor.
What Makes Luxury Vinyl Waterproof?
Luxury vinyl’s core is where it gets its waterproof qualities. Manufacturers use materials like limestone dust and PVC composites in the flooring that do not absorb moisture. This also means the floors won’t buckle, crack, or warp due to being exposed to moisture. You need to keep in mind though that just because the flooring itself is waterproof, that does not mean your subfloor is.
Different Types of Luxury Vinyl Flooring
There are differences between waterproof floors and water resistant floors. Waterproof floors are made to combat water from their surface all the way to their backing. Water resistant flooring can only resist water from the surface, and it’ll eventually become absorbed if not taken care of. It is important to always clean up any water related spills or moisture as to prevent your subfloors from being damaged.
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.
