What is waterproof flooring?
Waterproof flooring is advanced floor technology which prevents water damage in areas with high moisture levels.
This is a durable option to normal flooring, providing protection against spills and leaks. The multiple layers, including a waterproof core, prevent swelling and warping, protecting your home from mould and mildew.
These also offer a soundproof quality due to their solid core backing.
Can waterproof flooring be installed over existing floors?
Yes, waterproof floors can be installed directly over most existing floors, including ceramic tile, vinyl, hardwood, and laminate floors.
They are designed to cover up any imperfections of the subfloor beneath for a smooth finish.
What rooms are suitable for waterproof floors?
Waterproof flooring is ideal for installation in bathrooms, kitchens, and basements where exposure to high levels of moisture is likely to occur.
These floors come in various styles, mimicking the look of wood, stone, and ceramic tile.
Are waterproof floors scratch and stain-resistant?
Waterproof floors are designed to resist everyday wear and tear, including scratches and stains.
They are suitable for various installation environments as they resist mould and mildew, preventing costly payments for repairs and replacements.
Can Rugs or Mats Be Used on Waterproof Floors?
Yes, rugs and mats can be placed over waterproof floors.
However, we recommended using mats or rugs that are labelled “colourfast” as they are resistant to fading and can be easily cleaned and maintained.
Vinyl-backed mats or woven rugs are also a suitable option for waterproof floors. However, avoid rubber or latex-backed mats as they can permanently stain the floor.
