How is waterproof laminate flooring made?
Waterproof laminate flooring is made in two ways. The first is with a coating of water repellent chemicals on the surface of the laminate flooring. This ensures no moisture can seep through the wear layers and click system. This creates water-resistant flooring, ideal for bathrooms and kitchens.
The second way is to also soak the HDF boards in water repellent oils, making this into a 100% waterproof laminate floor. This protects all of the board, not just the surface, and stops water from warping and damaging the HDF plank. Both of these forms of waterproofing laminate floors work effectively, meaning no matter the brand of waterproof laminate floor you choose for your kitchen or bathroom, you are always in safe hands.
Why does bathroom or kitchen laminate need to be waterproof?
Laminate floors for kitchens and bathrooms need to be 100% waterproof to ensure no bubbling or damage occurs, due to the constantly changing moisture conditions in these environments. It might be suitable in other areas of the house to choose a water-resistant laminate floor where the top layer has been treated to resist moisture. However, it's best to choose a bathroom and kitchen laminate with full protection.
