Yes, luxury vinyl flooring (LVF) is 100% waterproof. Whether submerged or spilled on, it's impervious to liquid and can be wiped dry and reused. Read along to learn more about this product and its waterproof capabilities.
Waterproof vs. water-resistant
When something is impervious to liquid, it is made of waterproof materials (in this case, vinyl) with no special coatings to help it. When something's resistant to water, that means it will repel for a short time but eventually break through to soak the core and peel and ripple.
Luxury vinyl flooring also equals stylish savings
Luxury vinyl flooring offers gorgeous true-to-life images of wood, stone, and tile, all taken with high-definition photography, so they're clear, vibrant, and accurate. Micro beveling and embossing add depth, dimension, and textured looks. Sometimes even the flooring experts have difficulty telling that from the real thing, but you'll certainly know when you go to pay.
The material is also cut into floorboard mimics called vinyl plank flooring; square, tile-sized pieces are used with or without grout called LVT flooring. The extra seams add realism, while others use plank for stone mimics because of the larger format and fewer seams.
Durability to withstand kids and pets
Luxury vinyl flooring is layered and five times thicker than the original product. At the top, a transparent, strong, melamine wear layer protects the floor from scratches and scuffs. On top of that is a translucent urethane finish that adds extra shine and strength.
Other luxury vinyl flooring benefits include:
1. Low maintenance. Regular sweeping and periodic mopping are required, but ensure the cleaner is manufacturer-approved. Also, avoid waxy, shine-promoting cleaners as they dull the floor.
2. Uncomplicated installation. This is especially so when it is installed with the floating floor technique. The pieces click, mat, and then hover over the subfloor without adhesives.
