What does waterproof flooring entail?

Waterproof flooring means being utterly impervious to liquid. It is constructed of waterproof materials and results in a floor where the capability is inherent. There are no special coatings or other features needed to protect it from moisture.

These floors can be submerged or spilled on and will be completely undamaged. Sometimes you'll hear the words "water-resistant" used interchangeably, but that's not entirely correct. All it means is that the floor will repel liquid for a short time before breaking through to the core and staining.

What is this flooring type?

Sometimes referred to as waterproof vinyl flooring, it's luxury vinyl (LVF) but engineered to be even thicker and more durable; LVF is already waterproof and five times thicker than standard sheet vinyl, and this adds the highest level of moisture protection. Instead of the traditional vinyl core, these floors use WPC (wood plastic composite) or SPC (stone plastic composite) cores that are technologically advanced and won't peel or ripple no matter how much water there is for how long.
It has the same style as LVF with wood, stone, and tile images, created with high definition photography and micro beveling and embossing to add depth and dimension. It follows all industry trends, including textures, with looks that have wire-brushed, hand-scraped, and more.

Another design option is that the material can be cut into planks called waterproof vinyl plank flooring. This is a form of luxury vinyl; when used with the SPC core, it becomes firm and rigid, like a hard surface like hardwood. They can be used in any room, including the basement, and are ideal for busy, wet spaces like kitchen and bath.

Like all LVF, these floors are low maintenance, requiring only regular sweeping and periodic mopping. Avoid waxy, shine-promoting cleaners since they damage the finish and dull the floor. Installation can also be easy since these floors have a clicking mechanism to mat, then hover over the subfloor with no nails or glue.
