A water resistant floor is not the same as a waterproof floor. It is not a fun surprise to find out too late that your waterproof floors are not in fact waterproof at all. Water-resistant floors repel moisture from the surface eventually soak it up and it will cause damage to your subfloor. A waterproof floor creates a watertight barrier at the surface of the floor. If moisture does make it past the surface, the core of the planks or tiles will allow the moisture to evaporate and stops it from reaching your subfloors. Unlike hardwood flooring or any other flooring types, waterproof luxury vinyl floor won’t buckle, crack, or warp due to being exposed to moisture.
More often than not, homeowners with pets and rambunctious children are the most common buyers of waterproof flooring. Occasional pet accidents happen, and you cannot always get to them right away, so waterproof flooring takes away the worry of your floors being damaged by unexpected spills.
