COMMERCIAL WATERPROOF FLOORING
Waterproof flooring has become one of the fastest growing trends in today’s commercial flooring market. It would be nice to install welcoming and inviting floors in areas such as cafeterias, bathrooms, and entryways without having to worry about potential moisture or water damage. That’s why we install some of the trendiest waterproof flooring options available today.
Waterproof Laminate Flooring
Laminate is typically more susceptible to damage when moisture is present. It is one of the most popular options on the market today. Classic laminate construction is made of wood particles, which is likely to swell when moisture is heavy. Water resistant laminate flooring is not as common as other types of waterproof flooring, but if you do some research you can definitely find a laminate floor that fits your needs. Laminate flooring is affordable, durable, and resistant to stains and fading. It is generally understood, however, that laminate should be avoided in areas that are prone to moisture such as kitchens, bathrooms, and entryways. While the surface of laminated flooring is often protected from moisture, the same is not always true for the spaces between its components. To alleviate this problem, we suggest installing a floating laminate floor, along with properly sealing the spaces between the components. When done properly, the threat of water seeping through is eliminated, resulting in a waterproof laminate floor.
Waterproof Wood Flooring
If you are considering adding the beauty of natural hardwood into your facility’s decor, yet fear moisture, consider the option of waterproof vinyl flooring. Due to its design and material innovations, Vinyl flooring is rapidly being adopted in more and more settings. Vinyl is easy to install, and you don’t have to worry about waxing or sealing since it is completely impervious to water. Many vinyl floors now offer premium-quality, wood-like finishes and durable surfaces at a far less cost than traditional materials, such as genuine hardwood. Therefore, if you want wood floors in your commercial kitchen, bathroom, or entryway, this can be a great option for you.
Carpet has always been a way to add warmth and character to any space. It comes in many design options, including patterns, colors, even mosaics — nearly limitless aesthetic possibilities. With more colors to choose from, you no longer have to compromise between style and strength. However, new technology has brought about a new line of waterproof carpeting that makes it virtually waterproof using lifeguard protection. This protection allows water or liquids to sit atop the surface without being able to penetrate the fibers or the floor beneath — ensuring easy cleaning and a long-lasting carpet solution. Up until now, it has been conceived that if an area of carpet becomes irreversibly damaged by moisture or mildew, the whole carpet in a section must be taken up and reinstalled. With this new waterproof technique, you no longer need to worry about water damage.
