When shopping for waterproof flooring

As you shop for waterproof flooring, you’re likely to hear the term, “WPC”. This stands simply for “wood plastic composite”, and although wood is mentioned in the name, no real wood pieces are used in its manufacture. It helps to create a watertight core that protects you against spills, large or small.

The difference between waterproof flooring and water-resistant flooring is actually the amount of time you have to act after a spill. Water resistant flooring will hold off damage for up to 24 hours, but this product places a complete barrier against water damage. Some products, such as luxury vinyl flooring, can easily withstand flood like conditions, even to the point of being reinstalled once dried out completely.

Installation of these products is quick and easy for the professional installation team. Novice installation is advised with some materials, such as ceramic and porcelain tile and some stone materials. Mistakes with these floor coverings can be expensive to fix or replace, or can leave you with a warranty that the manufacturer will not honor. Be sure to ask your flooring specialist about more installation details.

You’ll be able to keep your waterproof flooring clean and well maintained with little effort. Since most messes can easily be cleaned up without the need for added chemicals, a simple broom and mop go a long way with this material.
