Is luxury vinyl flooring waterproof?

Choose luxury vinyl if you're looking for maintenance-free flooring that you can depend on in even the worst situations. Whether a wet towel is left on the floor or your washing machine overflows, you can be assured that your luxury vinyl floor will not be damaged. Brothers Flooring carries a large assortment of trendy waterproof luxury vinyl flooring. We have a showroom in Post Falls, Idaho, and Spokane, Washington.

Core layer

The best luxury vinyl plank and luxury vinyl tile brands are waterproof because of the composition of the core material. The core, which makes up the bulk of LVP and LVT flooring, is four layers. Typical wood plastic composite (WPC) core or a stone plastic composite (SPC) core. The main ingredient in a WPC core is wood pulp, while an SPC core contains limestone. WPC flooring, which includes a foaming agent that adds softness underfoot, is excellent for homes, while almost indestructible SPC flooring is best for commercial applications.

Wear layer

While the core layer protects the plank or tile from water damage, the transparent wear layer protects the photo-realistic wood, stone, or ceramic image layer from stains and abrasion. Expect top-quality LVP and LVT brands to have a thick wear layer that is hard to wear down. Your floor will have a long lifespan if planks or tiles include a surface layer that has a 20-mil thickness. This type of floor covering is appropriate for high-traffic areas and for households that welcome pets. Pet-friendly warranties back some brands.
