Which Waterproof Flooring Option Is Right For Me?
As you begin researching waterproof flooring, you might be surprised by the number of options out there. While you look at the options, you need to carefully consider what flooring option is right for you and why. All waterproof flooring products on the market have different qualities and attributes, making some a better fit for your needs than others.
Let’s take a look at some of the attributes of Aqua Step waterproof flooring so you can decide if it is right for you.
Will Your Flooring Be Exposed To The Sun?
Much waterproof flooring is designed for moisture-heavy areas like the basement, so they aren’t equipped with protection from UV rays, requiring installation in dark areas of the home or requiring that you keep blinds drawn during the day to protect the flooring from sun damage.
Aqua Step, however, has a UV protectant which means it’s okay to install anywhere in your home – even in brightly lit areas where you like to have the sun shining in all day long. If you’re looking for waterproof flooring that will work well in a bright kitchen, a basement that actually does get a lot of light, or even a covered sun porch, Aqua Step could be the choice for you.
Now that you know you don’t have to worry about sun damage, do you want waterproof flooring throughout your entire house without transitions? Aqua Step doesn’t require transitions every so many feet like other waterproof flooring options, providing a clean look throughout the house.
Is Your Flooring Being Installed In An Area That Already Has Moisture Issues?
One of the reasons people start looking for waterproof flooring is that they have to replace old flooring because of moisture or water damage. If this is the case, especially in a basement, some waterproof flooring will require that you test for moisture before installing. Even if you haven’t already had water damage, many waterproof flooring products will advise that you test for moisture beforehand and even add a moisture barrier.
The premium design of Aqua Step waterproof flooring means you do not have to take these extra steps before installation. If moisture is already a problem, and you are looking for waterproof flooring that saves you time while providing you the highest quality and protection from water damage, Aqua Step could be the choice for you. With these benefits saving you time and material you don’t have to pile on additional costs to your project.
Do You Need Heating Installed Under Your Waterproof Flooring?
This is no problem for Aqua Step! While many waterproof flooring products cannot have radiant heating installed underneath them, Aqua Step can. This means you can install Aqua Step wherever you need to in your house or business without having to worry about your heating system.
How Do You Clean Your Floors?
Cleaning a floor can be a tedious chore under the best of circumstances. If you have to change the cleaning products you use, or search out new ones just to use on your waterproof floor, then the chore becomes even more of a hassle.
With Aqua Step, you can use any cleaning agent, even bleach. Many flooring product manufacturers advise against the use of any chemical on their products, so if you prefer to stick with the cleaning method that works best for you, Aqua Step waterproof flooring may be the best choice for you.
Being a waterproof floor, this also means Aqua Step is a great choice for pet owners. Though we love them, animals come with their fair share of messes and a waterproof floor has the advantage of being resilient to unwanted liquids, shedding and dirty paw prints. With Aqua Step, cleaning is easy and affordable regardless of the mess.
So What Is The Right Option For Me?

Well, that’s for a reason – we offer a premium product that provides you and your property with superior protection and features that give you plenty of flexibility when it comes to meeting your flooring needs.
