If you have pets or small children, waterproof flooring may seem like the obvious choice, but any busy home can benefit from waterproof flooring. At Kemp’s Dalton West Flooring, our team wants to help you understand how waterproof flooring could improve your home.

Easy Clean Up—Whether cleaning up spilled milk, a puppy’s accident, or a tipped over wine glass, your job will be much simpler when your floor is not absorbent. A waterproof floor will keep the liquid pooled on top where it can be easily wiped. Floorté by Shaw is an ideal waterproof choice for families who want to have an upscale look with more life-proof qualities.

Mold and Mildew Prevention—When you have a non-waterproof floor, especially in a constantly wet space like a bathroom, laundry room, or kitchen, you must be vigilant about drying off the floor so mold and mildew will not be a problem. Do not let moisture build up and cause your family respiratory problems. Choosing a waterproof flooring protects your flooring and your family.

Durable—In a busy home, a floor may have to endure scuff marks from shoes, a dog’s toenails, and toy cars driving all over it. You want a floor which will resist scratches and wear and tear so your family can go on living. Quality waterproof flooring will also provide this kind of durability to help support your constantly moving lifestyle.

Protection—Having waterproof flooring in your bathroom is recommended not only because of moisture control, but also to protect the rest of your home. Imagine if your toilet overflowed in your upstairs bathroom. The water could leak down to your living room causing significant damage. When your floor is waterproof, the water will pool on top and not seep below to the rest of your home.

Customizable—There are vast options in terms of color and finish with waterproof flooring. Whether looking for a hardwood appearance or a luxury stone look, there is a waterproof luxury vinyl option to fit your style.

If you are ready to explore the waterproof floor options, call Kemp’s Dalton West Flooring to schedule a consultation or visit one of our luxury showrooms. We are ready to show you how flooring can be luxurious and functional at the same time.
