These amazing materials allow you to floor basements, laundry rooms, bathrooms, and kitchens with complete confidence.

If you have children, then you know how easy it is to experience spills. The fact is, those spills can happen anywhere, from the living room to the bedroom, and every place in between. Pets are another constant source of accidents and spills. If you have both, waterproof flooring simply makes sense. At the same time, these floors are also constructed to handle heavy levels of traffic, especially when you choose thicker materials and thicker wear layers. Since these materials often have a lifespan of up to 30 years, you can expect to enjoy the benefits for a long time.

When researching waterproof flooring, you’re likely to come across WPC flooring. That stands for “wood plastic composite” and means the core is completely waterproof. The word “wood” makes some homeowners nervous, thinking that real wood is used in its construction, but it’s actually only wood by-products such as pulps and resins that are used. When combined with the plastic composite materials and pressed together, it’s very capable of protecting your floors from water damage.

These materials offer quick and easy installation, with cleaning and maintaining being just as easy. Simply sweep up any loose debris and then mop with warm, soapy water. Bigger messes can necessitate special cleaners, but be sure not to use harsh chemicals on this flooring.
