The ins and outs of waterproof flooring

You might think waterproof flooring is only for those homeowners who live in areas that are more prone to flooding. While this is definitely a great use for this floor covering, it certainly isn’t the only reason to choose it. There are plenty more benefits to this type of flooring than you might think at first.

Total Hardwood Flooring knows how important your floors are to you, and finding the right one to fit your needs is just as important to us. That’s why we will go above and beyond, to make sure you have a friend in the business, every step of the way. We serve the areas of San Jose, Santa Clara, Milpitas, Mountain View, San Mateo, Redwood City, and the South Bay area and our showroom is located in San Jose, CA. We invite you to stop by to have a look at our complete line of flooring.

Is waterproof flooring the same as water resistant flooring?

One of the things you might hear in your search for the perfect flooring is that water resistant flooring is just as good as waterproof. It’s true that some water resistant flooring can withstand a spill for up to twenty-four hours. However, it’s definitely not the same thing.

When your floor is impervious to water, you’ll have absolutely no worries when it comes to water damage. It could be a spill or a major flood, and your flooring will be as good as new once it dries out. This is especially great should you happen to have a massive leak, or busted pipe while you are away on vacation.

Waterproof flooring does not sacrifice style

If you’re worried about whether or not waterproof flooring will fit your home’s existing décor, you need not worry. This material comes in such a variety of styles and designs, you’re sure to find something that will be just as pleasing to the eye as some of the higher end flooring types.

You can even find flooring in this niche that mimics natural resources such as solid hardwood and natural stone, for the classic look that other homeowners will envy.

The best part is that all this style doesn’t include the hefty maintenance that is required of those natural materials. Not only is it easier to take care of, it’s a breeze to clean as well. With tools as simple as a broom and a damp mop, you’ll be able to keep your floors looking like new for years to come.
