Why you should consider waterproof flooring

If you do, even if nothing ever happens to actually put it to use, you will still have experienced some of the best peace of mind.

In fact, we strive for 100% customer satisfaction with every customer. From our showroom in Grand Junction, CO, we serve the areas of Grand Junction, CO, Fruita, CO, and Palisade, CO. We look forward to helping you find the perfect flooring for your home as well.

What is waterproof and WPC flooring?

WPC simply stands for “wood plastic composite” and lets you know that your flooring is truly waterproof. Some homeowners get confused because the word wood is used, leading them to believe that there is actually wood in the flooring itself. However, the only wood products used are wood resin and other by products, and not actual wood that can be damaged by water.

There is a big difference between the terms “waterproof” and water “resistant”. It really all just boils down to time. Flooring that is resistant to water, spills, moisture and humidity will take longer to soak up the liquid and can stand under the pressure for longer than flooring that isn't water resistant.

Waterproof flooring, on the other hand, will never be compromised, especially if you're dealing with a true vinyl core, such as what you'll find with luxury vinyl flooring that is waterproof. It can withstand the harshest conditions, even to the point of flooding, and still be used after it is dried off.

This flooring is great when used in foyers, mudrooms, laundry rooms, kitchens and bathrooms. With this floor covering in place, you won't have to worry about leaky pipes, appliances that might malfunction and overflow, or any number of wet footprints that get tracked in and across your floors. At the same time, it's super easy to keep clean with just a broom and damp mop. For tougher stains, consult your manufacturer for the proper cleaner to use.
