Waterproof flooring is one of the most popular choices in flooring. Homeowners love it due to its’ water-resistant properties and durability. WPC or Wood Plastic Composite is vinyl flooring in an engineered plank format that offers the look and feel of natural wood without the worry of a natural product.
WPC flooring is comprised of 4 layers. From bottom to top, these consist of a base layer that is an attached underlayment or backing which helps give the floor a firm foundation, some sound absorption and comfort. Next, is the rigid core layer. This layer is where the name comes from because the core layer is made of wood powder and a combination of plastics and resin. The vinyl layer is next which provides the decorative print and the fourth layer, the wear layer to protect from scratches, dents, and scuffs.
Not only are these products great for high moisture areas, but beautiful as well! You will find a wide variety of style, color, and grain choices available. Styles to enhance your décor from traditional to modern.
Regardless of the challenges your household faces, waterproof flooring offers a commercial-grade durability at a price you can afford.
It can be installed throughout your home or in any room you choose. The unique construction offers a thicker and enhanced urethane coating which results in a resistance to stains, scratches, and wear. This makes for easy cleaning and is pet friendly too!
Waterproof flooring is quite easy to install, allowing you to makeover your basement, bathroom, laundry room or kitchen in just a few hours. No need for a long, drawn out prep time – and it can even be installed over your existing tile or vinyl.
Caring for your WPC floor is a cinch!
Sweep up any lose dirt or grit with a broom or vacuum that is safe for hard surfaces. Wipe up any spills quickly and regularly damp mop. Water, a mild dish soap and soft cloth or mop are all that are needed to remove more stubborn marks or dirt. Also, place walk off mats at the entrances to your home to help capture dirt and debris from being tracked in.
Avoid abrasive and hash chemical cleaners as well as cleaning tools with abrasive surfaces as they can damage the wear layer to the floor. It’s always a good idea to check with the flooring manufacturer or your sales associate for the recommended cleaning products and directions.
With Waterproof flooring, just pick your color and style and quickly transform your room from dull to dazzling!
