Hardwood is making a comeback as the ideal flooring option for homes and in a big way. In the past, when you thought of hardwood you thought of log cabins or expensive wooden flooring. Today, new technology is making hardwood an ideal flooring option for those who want to bring nature indoors, using durable, water-resistant material, without breaking the bank. Read on to learn about the benefits of waterproofed hardwood and why it may be the ideal flooring option for your home.
What is Waterproofed Hardwood?
Waterproofed hardwood is hardwood flooring that has been modified to make it impervious to stains, moisture, and water. While some treatments only make flooring resistant to moisture and water up to a certain point, waterproofing takes it a step further by adding a waterproof outer layer, such as polymer composites, and a protective finish that adds an additional layer that guards against wear. The waterproofing method can vary from one manufacturer to another, but the result is the same: elegant, aesthetically-pleasing hardwood flooring that can withstand exposure to water, moisture, and prolonged wear.
Benefits of Waterproofed Hardwood
Wood flooring comes with a natural look that is ideal if you want to bring the outdoors into your home. If you want your home to exude a natural feel, hardwood flooring is the best option. It’s elegant and high-end, all at the same time. Enjoy all these advantages without the problems common in untreated hardwood floors.
Versatility and Practicality
Waterproofed wood flooring can be used for any room in the house, from the kitchen and laundry room to your bathrooms. Because it can withstand water exposure and even prolonged water contact, you can use hardwood flooring in rooms that were previously off-limits to hardwood. If and when there are spills, food or water stains, clean up is easy to do. Simply mop and wipe dry and you are good to go.
Organic Wood Flooring
Since waterproof hardwood is made of real wood, you get natural flooring that compliments the style of your home. There is no need to compromise with other flooring options that resemble wood. With waterproofed hardwood, you can get the real deal minus the worry. Even if you have kids or pets in the house, you won’t need to worry about spills that could damage the finish of your floors. Even if you encounter scenarios like plumbing leaks that can leave ordinary wooden floors spongy and discolored, your waterproof flooring can withstand all that abuse and still look great once it is wiped dry. It’s the perfect mix of durable functionality and organic style.
