Think about any large spills that might have happened in your house. Like that one time when your child dropped the open gallon of milk and it spilled everywhere, or when your adorable puppy accidentally confused the corner next to the TV with the grass in the backyard. This is when waterproof flooring comes to the rescue. Kids, pets, parties and other spill inducing scenarios can be a nightmare, however, waterproof flooring is a solution that can help you rest at ease.

You may immediately think of vinyl records, or perhaps vinyl shower curtains, or maybe even the old vinyl flooring you saw in your grandparent’s house when you were a kid. Get that out of your mind – vinyl is now an excellent flooring solution. Not only that, but it is one of the most popular flooring options in the world.
