Waterproof vinyl flooring is a multi-layer synthetic flooring material that is not damaged by water even when the floor is wet for an extended period.
Hessler Floor Covering brings this durable and adaptable floor covering to Southwest Florida. In addition, we have a wide variety of waterproof plank and tile flooring at our three showrooms in Punta Gorda, Fort Myers, and Naples, FL.
Flooding and luxury vinyl
While waterproof vinyl flooring won't be ruined during a flood, water can seep under planks and tiles, where mold can grow. But a floating floor, which is not attached to the subfloor, can be disassembled so the subfloor can be dried out.
Water in a significant flooding event often includes contaminants, so it may be best to replace your floor even if it's not damaged.
So, even if worst comes to worst and you must install a new floor after a flood, readying the subfloor for the new flooring is fuss-free when you choose vinyl plank flooring.
Waterproof brands usually have a wood plastic composite (WPC) core or a stone plastic composite (SPC) core. WPC flooring includes a foaming agent to cushion your footsteps.
Three more layers
A WPC core is made with wood byproducts, while an SPC core is made with limestone. A backing layer protects the core layer protecting the subfloor from daily wear and tears.
The wood, stone, or ceramic image layer is situated above the core layer, and this high-tech image is well-protected by the transparent and easy to clean wear layer.
