Waterproof Flooring Options
While waterproof floors have long been a must-have in kitchens and bathrooms, modern advancements in technology are pushing this type of flooring to the forefront in areas throughout the home. With stylish advents like waterproof luxury vinyl and carpet, more homeowners are choosing to install waterproof floors in areas like bedrooms, living rooms, home offices, and more. Waterproof floors are also the best option for many commercial settings and businesses, such as restaurants, apartment and vacation rentals, and downtown shops. At Carpet Man Carpet One Floor & Home in Timmons, ON, we carry an impressive selection of waterproof floors, including tile, luxury vinyl, and carpet.
Waterproof floors can handle the inevitable spills, messes, and splashes that daily life throws at it – especially in busy households with young children and pets. Whether it's a puppy accident or coffee spill, our waterproof floors are easy to clean and will stay odour and stain-free in the long-run. Beyond their water-repellent features, waterproof flooring is generally durable, abrasion-resistant, and long-lasting.
Our premium vinyl flooring selection includes plenty of waterproof options. While virtually any vinyl flooring product you choose will be moisture-resistant, our waterproof selections feature specialized cores and watertight seams that keep leaks from moving to the subfloor and causing mould and mildew growth. Our waterproof LV collections include wood vinyl that looks just like natural wood flooring and vinyl tiles that gorgeously mirror ceramic, porcelain, and stone.
Waterproof tiles are manufactured using longer and hotter firing techniques, along with specialized glazes to create an ultra-durable, moisture-proof product. The glaze used on waterproof tiles often adds extra slip-resistance, so the floor remains safe when it's wet. You'll also find ultra stain and wear-resistant options for kitchens and other high-traffic spaces.
One of the newer categories of waterproof flooring is waterproof carpets. Waterproof carpets, like our Carpet One exclusive Tigressá® H20™ collection, have moisture-wicking fibres and industrial-strength plastic backings that prevent spills from moving past the carpet's surface and damaging the pad and subfloor below. You can easily clean up spills on waterproof carpets, even if you don't catch them right away, and they won't retain odours. Additionally, waterproof carpets are considered a hypoallergenic option as they prevent the growth of mould and mildew.
