Can laminate flooring withstand wet conditions?

In the past, laminate flooring wasn't always the best choice for damp or humid areas, let alone spaces where spills, splashes, and wet footprints are common. The good news is that this product line offers more options than ever to make flooring these damp, spill-prone spaces easier.

What to know about waterproof laminate flooring?

As you shop for flooring that caters to areas in your home prone to water damage, you'll hear about water-resistant and waterproof flooring. Water-resistant materials guard against damage for a certain amount of time, with some protecting your surfaces for up to 72 hours.

Waterproof laminate flooring, however, guards against damage for up to 25 years when the proper criteria are met. For instance, these floors only protect against liquids and humidity from the top down, so you'll want to be careful not to allow liquids to soak beneath the floor's layers.

With the proper considerations, waterproof laminate flooring can be the perfect addition to bathrooms, kitchens, foyers, and children's rooms. And the more you know what to expect from the product line, the better your results will be.
