The protection of luxury vinyl plank and tile
Both luxury vinyl plank and luxury vinyl tile offer outstanding durability options in general and protection against water damage that can come from leaks, spills, and even flood-like conditions. The top wear layer is responsible for protection against daily wear, but it is the core layer that provides waterproof options that genuinely work.
Waterproof core materials can be made of 100% vinyl, wood plastic composite, and stone plastic composite and prevent your floors from peeling, cracking, warping, or buckling. It is still best if you acclimate your flooring before installation, especially if humidity and dampness are ongoing issues, for the very best results.
Once your waterproof luxury vinyl floors are in place, they are easy to clean and maintain. You can use any solution recommended by the manufacturer, or just a dampened mop, as long as extreme heat is not used in the process.
