Is Laminate Flooring Waterproof?

You have decided to install laminate flooring and the question that is disturbing you is whether laminate flooring is water proof. Being water proof means it is highly resistant to water. For a product to be water proof it has to be made out of materials that are water proof in nature or the combination of those materials during manufacture leads to products that are water proof. Laminate flooring is mostly made from recycled timber products hence it is not water proof. In case you are looking for flooring material that is completely water proof to install in a certain part of your house them look for other materials such as tiles. Laminate wood will easily allow in water and can be easily affected by the water where it can lead to reduced durability.

Is laminate flooring waterproof

Here are some parts of the house where there are high chances of water spillage and laminate flooring is discouraged

1.In bathrooms

Bathrooms experience a lot of water, there may be some incidences when the tabs may leak or when you are taking a shower the water may fall on the floor. In case you are having laminate flooring in your home in such places you will be highly inconvenienced as the water will seep into the laminate flooring leading to difficulties in removing it. In case it is a period when the temperatures are too low this can lead to the timber to start decaying hence requiring you to replace them which may affect you financially.

2. In washrooms

Sometimes you may be washing clothes in your wash room. The water will be spilling as you will be washing .In case you had laminate flooring this can be very difficult for you. The water will be just entering deep into the wood which will lead to its spread under the woods which may end up making all your wooden flooring be in a bad condition necessitating your attention in terms of looking for repairs. It can cost you a lot of money in repairing the whole spoilt floor. To save try and look for suitable water proof flooring materials. You can readily choose the right materials for your floor by asking the advice concerning them from the experts in the manufacturing sector of the flooring material in Singapore.

3. In the kitchen

While in the kitchen there are high chances that the water will be spilling. The sink may become clogged without your knowledge and the water get poured on the floor .Just imagine if you had a floor there that is not water resistant. The water will seep into the floor which will reduce its durability greatly. This is also another case that will expose you to unnecessary expenses.

Laminate flooring is very beautiful in design but using it in a wrong place where the water will affect its operation is a practice that is highly discouraged. To enjoy the best out of the laminate flooring it is highly advisable to look for the best parts of the house free from water for you to enjoy its service .If you must use it try and keep water away.
