Waterproof flooring equates to worry-free flooring. When you have these floors, all concerns about little spills and significant floods are removed.
The floor isn't damaged, no matter how much water or long it's been there. So, you can go away for weeks or months with peace of mind.
Question #1: Does water-resistant mean waterproof?
Waterproof floors are completely impenetrable. The floors are made of waterproof materials, such as vinyl, so the capability is inherent. Waterproof flooring doesn’t need any special coatings or features to help it.
Water-resistant means that it will repel, but only for a short time. Unless it is wiped quickly, the liquid will break through and soak the core.
Question #2: Why all the talk about WPC/SPC cores?
A core is essentially the floor. When it gets damaged, the entire surface needs replacement.
You will hear the initials WPC and SPC a lot. These are wood/stone plastic composite cores that are technologically advanced and won't peel or ripple.
What’s the difference between luxury vinyl and waterproof vinyl flooring?
It's the level of moisture protection. Luxury vinyl (LVF) stays waterproof for about 16 hours, while waterproof vinyl's timeline is unlimited.
This flooring is the engineered version of luxury vinyl. It's thicker, more durable, and constructed with the WPC cores.
Waterproof vinyl flooring has all of the styles of LVF. It can be cut into planks or square tile-sized pieces and has an easy click-lock installation.
