Kitchens & Bathrooms
LVT is known for its water-resistant properties, which makes it suitable for areas with higher moisture levels, such as kitchens and bathrooms. However, it’s important to note that the level of water resistance can vary among different LVT products, so to some, it is essential to choose an LVT flooring specifically designed for areas with higher moisture.
LVT typically has a protective wear layer that acts as a barrier against water and moisture. Additionally, when installed correctly, with proper sealing of seams and edges, LVT can provide a relatively waterproof surface. This helps prevent water from seeping through and damaging the subfloor.
However, while LVT is water-resistant, it’s essential to promptly clean up any spills or standing water to prevent potential damage. Excessive and prolonged exposure to water can still have an impact on the integrity of the flooring and may cause issues over time.
In summary, LVT is a popular flooring choice for kitchens and bathrooms due to its water-resistant properties. It provides a durable and low-maintenance option that can withstand the moisture typically found in these areas. Just make sure to choose a quality LVT product suitable for wet environments and follow proper installation and maintenance guidelines to ensure its longevity.
