What is the difference between waterproof and water-resistant flooring?

When you need protection from water damage in any area of your home, you can choose from both water-resistant and waterproof floors. But what’s the difference between the two?

In today's post, we are going to discuss this answer in greater detail. So follow along to find the answers you need.

Do you need water-resistant or waterproof floors?

If spills, moisture, and humidity are not things you have to worry about regularly, water-resistant flooring will work perfectly for your home, especially in foyers, hallways, and kitchens. In addition, these floors give you a certain amount of time to clean these messes, with some  offering as much as 72 hours of protection before damage begins to happen.

With waterproof floors, you are protected no matter how long the floors are wet, as the materials never soak up the liquids. These are perfect for homes where dampness, humidity, spills, or pet messes can happen more often than usual.

Both flooring products can give you beautiful visuals and extensive durability against daily wear, so be sure to consider all your options in each product type. If you are still unsure which waterproof flooring options are best for you, stop by today to speak with a flooring professional.
