If you need a floor that requires less maintenance but can stand up to everyday life in your home, then consider waterproof flooring. Waterproof flooring is the best low maintenance option for families who have children and pets in their home. Mazzullo & Sons Carpet One Floor & Home in Oneida, NY carries several different types of waterproof flooring including luxury vinyl, tile, and even carpet. We work with you and to answer any questions you may have and to find the product that works best for you and your family!
A water resistant floor is usually designed to withstand water better than it normally would. The aluminum oxide coating most floors have is close to waterproof, but the seams or gaps between planks leave the core slightly exposed to moisture, so the floor itself is not waterproof. Waterproof flooring features watertight gaps between the planks, so they can handle anything from a small spill to your dishwasher overflowing in the kitchen.
Waterproof flooring cuts back time on your weekly cleaning routine and you also no longer have to worry about accidentally missing a spill or mess. Waterproof flooring creates a watertight seal between your floors and subfloors, so accidental messes will not cause long-term damage. Waterproof flooring is an allergy friendly option because there is nowhere for dust or dirt to hide, and because it does not absorb moisture, there is nowhere for bacteria to thrive and grow.
Below are a few different waterproof flooring options to consider for your home.
Luxury Vinyl Flooring
Most luxury vinyl floors feature some sort of moisture
resistance, but we also offer completely waterproof
options. Waterproof luxury vinyl will change the way
you look at your flooring. You can have wood and
tile look flooring installed anywhere in your home
without worrying about moisture causing damage.
Popular places around the home people install
waterproof luxury vinyl include bathrooms and kitchens.
Waterproof tile is the ultimate option in kitchen
and bathroom flooring, and you can even install it
outside as a patio. Our collection of waterproof tile
is made up of porcelain options. Our porcelain tile
collection features a wide variety of styles for you
to choose from, including wood look tile options.
Water Resistant Carpet
Waterproof carpet is not an entirely new option,
but the technology used to create these types of
carpets in continuously advancing. Waterproof
carpet features fibers that are resistant to moisture
and staining, and a backing that is super durable,
but remains flexible and prevents water from
soaking through to your carpet padding and subfloor.
