We need water to survive, but water can also be harmful – especially when it makes its way to somewhere it shouldn’t be, like inside a building. From rainy and snowy weather to accidents like leaking plumbing, it’s just a fact that water and moisture will end up inside your home or business at some point.
One of the best ways to protect against water damage is by using flooring that is actually 100% waterproof so that it can stand up to the threat of water throughout your property. From a home basement to the sales floor of your business, 100% waterproof flooring such as Aqua Step can protect your property while providing the aesthetic quality you need.
How Does Water Damage Property?
Water damage is no joke. It can happen quickly and very noticeably if your property is flooded, or slowly over time from moisture creeping in.
A flooded floor can happen anywhere at any time. Broken dishwashers, broken washing machines, burst pipes… or a flood can be the result of inclement weather! 100% waterproof flooring has the integrity to withstand water and help contain the damage from a flood or large spill – damage that could otherwise devastate the flooring and structure beneath it. The resulting moisture causes stained drywall, rotting wood, warped wallboards, mold growth and even creates a potential fire risk.
You would think a flood is the worst-case scenario – but it’s just as bad when it subtly damages your property over time. Moisture that slowly creeps in and wears down your property over the course of years can cause thousands of dollars in damage as easily as a massive rush of water from a broken pipe can. The only difference is it’s harder for you to spot it happening.
For example, even humid air can cause moisture buildup throughout your home. In a humid environment, the air is saturated with water and even properties that are kept sealed up tight can be susceptible to humid air leaks to get inside. Plus, if you live where there is high humidity you probably have an air conditioning system that may drip water and cause additional issues with moisture.
With 100% waterproof flooring, your property has a stronger barrier against moisture so dangerous mold doesn’t grow and destructive water spots aren’t wearing away at the internal structure of your home as it seeps down from the floor into the foundation or ceiling below.
On the flip side of humid environments are cooler climates where snow and ice cause problems with flooding and moisture. Snow and ice can pile up on roofs, creating ice dams that cause water to get inside your walls or just drip directly onto the floor. Basements can commonly flood as snow and ice melt in the spring, and it’s unavoidable to track snow and ice inside on your floors throughout those seasons. No matter the cause, water damage is a serious issue for property owners.
