There are enough worries in the world without waterproof
flooring being one of them. You might not be expecting a flood, but there could
be other factors at play that make the need for this type of flooring important.

prone to spilling things. Maybe your pets frequently knock over their water
bowls, creating havoc on your floors. Or maybe your bathroom floor has seen
Whatever the reason, Bennett's Carpets, Inc. can help you find the
perfect waterproof floor for your home. We can also help you figure out exactly

Waterproof Flooring and Luxury Vinyl
Many people think that all luxury vinyl tile and planks are
waterproof. However, that isn’t exactly the case. While all wood plastic
composite flooring (WPC) fits into the category of luxury vinyl, not all luxury
vinyl is waterproof.
The thing that may cause the confusion is the “water
resistant” label. Almost all luxury vinyl is water resistant to a certain
degree, however water resistant is not the same thing was waterproof.
Water resistance means that you can go longer without
worrying about a spill, humidity or moisture getting on your floors. At some
point, though, it will eventually soak through and cause problems. Floors that
are waterproof however, can withstand an outright flood simply by being dried
and put back in place later.
Waterproof Flooring can mimic natural resources
One of the great things about waterproof flooring and WPC is
that it can closely resemble natural stone and hardwood flooring. All the
elegance of these natural resources can be right at home in rooms they normally
aren’t seen in.
The basement is an excellent place to put WPC and waterproof
floors. With the high probability of dampness and humidity, you’ll have none of
the worry that would go along with other types of flooring.
You can even place waterproof floors right on top of any
subfloor, even those that are imperfect or uneven. WPC is so durable and thick
that it often evens out the rough spots, giving you a nice even look.
