While laminate and hardwood flooring provide highly stylish flooring options, they are limited to use in certain rooms in the home. As a result floor manufacturers have looked for new products that not only offer the natural look and style of wood/laminate but that are also more diverse in their applications. The outcomes have led to many new lines of waterproof products that are giving traditional wood and laminates a run for their money. Here are four reasons waterproof flooring has become such a popular trend.
Moisture in the home can be caused by many things. For example, steam from the shower, or even condensation on pipes or windows can contribute to moisture build-up. The most vulnerable areas of the home for moisture include refinished basements, laundry rooms, kitchens, and bathrooms. These rooms have more water, vapour, steam and condensation, then other rooms, putting them at higher risk for mould and mildew growth. This can make your family sick. Waterproof flooring products however are designed to repel water and prevent moisture buildup. This helps keep your home mould and mildew free.
Having low-maintenance waterproof flooring frees up time in your busy schedule. Because waterproof flooring helps repel spills and stains, they make for easy clean-up with a quick wipe. You can then use a wet mop or steam cleaner every so often to help remove germs, especially in the bathroom. You also don’t have to be so picky with the type of cleaning method you use as you do with wood floors because there’s no worry about damp or water damage.
The waterproof flooring Calgary homeowners love is kid and pet-friendly. It is less likely to absorb pet accidents and is, therefore, easier to clean, even if you weren’t home when the accident occurred. This reduces the risk of pet odours in the home from pet urine. Waterproof floors allow pet accidents to sit on the surface, so the floor is less likely to stain as well. The same goes for things such as spilled paints and drinks by the kids. Waterproof floors are resistant to damage caused by just about anything wet, but often they are also less likely to scratch and scuff.
There are more and more design options available in waterproof flooring making it a highly versatile choice when it comes to decorating. While waterproof flooring has always been available in coloured and textured options that can be mixed and matched, recent updates include very believable wood and stone options. This makes it an excellent choice that can be used anywhere in the home, without limitations like laminate, wood, or carpeting. You can install it to create exciting patterns for statement flooring, or simply use it as an attractive, low maintenance and very affordable flooring option.
Waterproof flooring offers an excellent choice for use anywhere in the home. It is both practical and stylish and can be used to create customized patterns or the perfect alternative for costlier flooring like hardwood.
