Some homeowners think that choosing waterproof flooring is going overboard, especially if they have good insurance. The fact is, however, that many insurance policies don’t cover flood damage. Even if they do, you’re still left with choosing a brand new floor covering, and then having it installed. You can save a lot of time by choosing a flooring that will stand up to just about anything, and this one does.
Even if flooding isn't a concern, this material can still work great in your home. Consider for a moment the amount of worry you’ll be saved with regards to water emergencies that can happen to anyone. Pipes bursting, appliances overflowing, spills that are left to sit without your knowledge, they’re all enough to make you nervous just thinking about them. With this flooring, you can kiss that worry goodbye.
Some will say that water resistant flooring is just as good, and in many situations it is. The thing that separates waterproof flooring from water resistant flooring is time. Floors that are resistant to spills, moisture, humidity and other water situations can usually stand up under the strain for up to twenty-four hours. If you aren’t going to be away from your home any longer than that, it will be fine. But if you’re often away for long periods of time, maybe it’s time to check out waterproof.
