What Makes Luxury Vinyl Waterproof?
The core of luxury vinyl is where the waterproof qualities come into play. Manufacturers use materials such as limestone dust and PVC composites in the flooring that do not absorb moisture. Luxury vinyl floors won’t buckle, crack, or warp due excessive water exposure. You should be aware that just because the flooring itself is waterproof, that does not mean your subfloor is.
A water resistant floor is not close to the same as a waterproof floor. Waterproof floors combat water from their surface all the way to their backing. Water resistant flooring can resist water from the surface but it will 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.
