Waterproof Flooring

The flooring itself might be waterproof since most manufacturers use vinyl to make it. You can stick the flooring in water for a while, pull it out and dry it pretty well with no problems…. One small problem is that people are using this flooring to place it on other materials that are NOT water proof.

Waterproof flooring in San Diego

Spill a gallon of milk on it, drop a glass of water on it and mop it up. NICE! But when that water is extensive (such as in water damage), the water gets underneath the flooring and it usually has to come up to make sure that the subfloor doesn’t start to grow mold.

For instance: you have a newer modern home and you want to put this waterproof flooring upstairs. Chances are that you will be putting this waterproof flooring on a subfloor made of wood. Your child spills some water out of the tub from one of his buckets, the water flows to the side of the tub between the toilet and hits the first gap in the baseboard which your handyman did not caulk to the flooring. Now your subfloor is wet and your baseboard is wet. It won’t dry until the flooring gets pulled. If someone doesn’t pull the flooring and dry the subfloor quickly, you will likely grow mold.
