Some companies will try to sell you water resistant flooring, as it probably fits into your budget a little better. However, it isn’t nearly the same thing. It can, in many instances, resist spills for up to twenty-four hours, but in worse conditions, it will eventually give out just like other floorings will. If there are any concerns about water damage, it’s definitely worth the extra budget allotment for the peace of mind it gives.
For instance, what if you’re on vacation while, back at home, you have a water pipe burst? Depending upon the appliance the water pipe was running to, this could mean that water is constantly flowing onto your floors. With water resistant flooring, this would mean you would more than likely have to replace your flooring once you got home and discovered the mess. However, with waterproof flooring, all you’ll need to do is clean up, because your floors will be safe!
If you’re worried about style, have no fear. You’ll have so many designs and options to choose from, you’re likely to find something that fits in with your existing décor perfectly.
