What Can You Expect from Aqua Step Floors?
When selecting flooring for rooms that will come in contact with water, like a kitchen or bathroom, it is wise to consider flooring that can withstand water contact. Water damage comes in several forms: standing water, condensation, intense humidity, or water penetrating underneath the floor. No matter what your flooring needs are, Aqua Step has you covered. Keep reading to discover the convenience and resilience of waterproof floors.
Waterproof Vs. Water-Resistant
When looking for the best water protection solution for your needs, it is vital to understand the proper terminology. The terms waterproof and water-resistant are often used interchangeably to refer to a surface that repels water, commonly in bathrooms, kitchens, and mudrooms. However, these terms are not interchangeable, and there are key differences in what waterproof flooring offers compared to water-resistant flooring.
Water Resistant Flooring
Hard flooring that is water-resistant protects against occasional small spills. Many flooring brands provide at least a modicum of water-resistant properties. However, if the spillage is not immediately cleaned up and dried, moisture will permeate the floor, and there is the likelihood of resultant permanent damage.
Waterproof flooring, in comparison, refers to a long-lasting material applied to floors that permanently repels water from penetrating the floor. When flooring is waterproof, it can stand up to any and all water inundation, from extreme humidity to flooding.
Aqua Step’s 100% waterproof flooring is constructed from PVC with a titanium and resin top layer that’s impervious to water. Aqua Step protects against flooding and condensation for long periods, making it the best choice for bathrooms, laundry rooms, kitchens, and basements.
Additional Benefits of Waterproof Flooring
Waterproof flooring is designed for durability. In addition to its long-lasting waterproof properties, Aqua Step 100% Waterproof Flooring offers the following protective benefits:
Stands Up to Temperature Fluctuations
The fluctuation of temperature and humidity in some climates causes a cycle of expansion and contraction that can cause wood to warp, especially in combination with home or commercial HVAC systems. Aqua Step 100% Waterproof Flooring remains intact regardless of climate conditions.
Protects Against Pet Damage
Aqua Step is an excellent choice for homes and businesses with four-footed friends. It is durable, scratch-resistant, and able to stand up to all kinds of liquid messes.
Provides Sound Dampening
Aqua Step is more effective at buffering noise than other flooring options. Aqua Step has a separate underlayment, which provides a superior sound-absorbing barrier between floors. Aqua Step’s flooring provides a sound cushion for echoing noise as well as transit sounds and other external noise. These features make Aqua Step waterproof flooring ideal for apartment buildings and restaurants.
