choosing the flooring for your lifestyle

The flooring that you install in your home should last several years before you even have to consider replacement. If your flooring isn't lasting that long, chances are, you aren't choosing the type of flooring that will fit into your lifestyle very well. This blog is all about choosing flooring that will fit into your lifestyle and last you many, many years before you have to rip it up and replace it. You will also find tips for keeping it looking like new as it survives the abuse that your family, friends and pets put it through during the course of the year.

Waterproof Vinyl Flooring Works For Areas Where Water Or Animals Pose Risks


Choosing the flooring for your home is something that needs to be done with care for many reasons. For one thing, the floor helps to complete the look of the room. If the flooring clashes with the rest of the decor, then this will present a big problem. For another thing, the wrong type of flooring in certain rooms can lead to a lot of future problems. Here are two reasons why waterproof vinyl flooring may be the best one for rooms or homes with certain risk factors: 

Vinyl waterproof flooring is great for rooms with plumbing

Any of the rooms in your home that have plumbing pipes and fixtures will be at risk of getting leaks at some point. Sometimes there may be a small leak you can find and fix right away and the flooring won't be put at risk at all. However, there is also the chance of there being a big leak or even something like a burst pipe. This can mean a flooded area with flooring that may or may not be ruined. What can make the difference in whether the flooring is ruined is the type of flooring you have in this space. 

Waterproof vinyl flooring will give you much more hopeful results. Also, issues in some of these areas, such as the kitchen or bathroom, may not even be with the pipes. Instead, there may be a risk of something else happening, like the sink or tub accidentally being filled too high. In any case, you want waterproof flooring that will still be in good condition after any incident. 

Vinyl waterproof flooring is great for rooms with animals

There is much damage that animals can do to floors. Dogs and cats can chew or claw at the carpet. This often happens because something ends up under the surface of the carpet. This can be anything from a piece of a treat that worked its way into the carpet to crumbs or even a spill that went to the padding. Also, animals can make big messes that are hard to clean up, from dogs or cats shedding everywhere or having an accident on the floor, to birds scattering their seed shells all over or going to the bathroom outside of the cage. In any case, you may have plenty to pick up after. 

Waterproof vinyl flooring can be such a great choice for homes with animals because it won't be easily damaged by pets and it is so easy to keep clean and sanitary. Spills and accidents can be cleaned up easily and completely. Things like fur or seed shells from birds can be swept in mere moments. A quick mopping can leave the area looking as if no animals ever went near it.
