Laminate Flooring now comes in “Water Resistant” and “Water Proof” varieties. Lots of the products labeled as “Water Proof” are still not designed for wet environments where lots of water will get on them. Spills, wet mops and other wet problems can damage most laminate flooring. 


Cures

There are other alternatives to laminate flooring. Most of the modern solutions can even look like wood.

  • Ceramic Tile
  • Vinyl Tile

Before you decide to put down laminate floors in a wet area (kitchens, bathrooms, laundry areas) be sure to check out alternative flooring at your local home center or flooring store. (Home Depot, Lowes, Floor & Decor, Lumber Liquidator, etc.). Ask your contractor for recommendations.
