Waterproof flooring options

It's always a good idea to purchase waterproof flooring since it's inevitable that mishaps will occur. This type of superior flooring, regardless of the material, is stain and abrasion-resistant, too.

Balduffs Carpet Cleaning & Floor Covering is a family-owned flooring company in Norwalk, OH, that offers a great selection of waterproof flooring in many styles.

Luxury vinyl

Luxury vinyl planks or tiles are your best bet if you're part of an active household or have children or pets. They are 100 percent waterproof and even tolerate standing water.

Look for a brand with a 20-mil transparent surface layer to protect the stone, ceramic, concrete, or wood image layer. This flooring can be glued down or 'floated' above the surface below it.


In general, waterproof laminate new floors repel water for the period specified by the manufacturer, usually about one day. RevWood is a superior brand with WetProtect technology, which gives the floor water-tight joints.

In addition, most laminate planks and tiles are designed for floating floor installation, so they need no attachment to a subfloor.


A pet-friendly warranty often backs highly stain-resistant carpeting, and while this type of floor covering is not waterproof, it does tolerate moisture that's not excessive. Spills are easy to remove, and stains are never a problem.

Engineered wood new floors, which are composed of a surface layer of hardwood and a base made of plywood, are another moisture-proof flooring option.
