Waterproof flooring in Greenwood, SC from Reagan Flooring

Choosing waterproof flooring is a great way to protect your home from water damage and all that goes with it. But it’s also a great way to meet your décor matching needs, no matter which room you’re flooring.

Caring for these floors is a great way to ensure they meet their intended lifespan. So, here are some tips for cleaning and caring for your waterproof flooring.

Choose the best protective top layer


The protective top layer protects your floors from daily wear, including stains and scratches. The thicker this layer is, the more durable and easy-to-clean your waterproof vinyl flooring will be as long as they’re in place.

Clean up messes right away


Clean up messes as soon as they happen so you're not left with a bigger chore in the future. These floors are easy to clean with just a broom, damp mop, and recommended cleaning solutions.

Use area rugs as necessary


A great area rug can catch many messes before they make it to your flooring. Use them in kitchens, bathrooms, foyers, and children's rooms for outstanding results.

Things to stay away from


When it comes to waterproof flooring, avoid abrasive cleaners and tools to guard against damage. But, of course, you'll also want to avoid steam cleaners.

While these floors are 100% waterproof, they cannot handle extreme heat and pressure. We'll give you more details if you need them.
