If you need protection from water damage, you might wonder if water-resistant and waterproof flooring is the same. Depending on who you ask, you may even hear conflicting messages.

The fact is that these materials are not the same, but they are similar. So, here's what you need to know to choose the best fit for your needs.

The difference between these two products

When you choose water-resistant flooring, they do a decent job of protecting you from water damage if you follow some crucial stipulations. First, it is imperative to clean all spills, dampness, and humidity within the time limits outlined by the manufacturer.

The most significant difference here is that waterproof vinyl flooring puts no restrictions on their protection. As a result, even in flood conditions, they will never succumb to the damage that can happen to other flooring materials in the same situations.

Which is better for your household?

It's essential to consider your specific requirements as you attempt to choose which product is better for your home. For instance, water-resistant materials may be enough if you only see an occasional spill and dampness isn't part of your daily routine.

But if you have pets or children, or experience lots of dampness and humidity, waterproof flooring is your best choice for the results you want. If you have questions about specific brands or features, speak with a flooring specialist who will be happy to help you.
