What makes luxury vinyl flooring waterproof?

The multilayered makeup of LVT flooring is what makes it waterproof, and therefore a durable and excellent choice. The WPC (Wood Plastic Composite) and SPC (Stone Plastic Composite) layers are what makes vinyl flooring waterproof; protecting the LVT and stopping the water from soaking into the floor itself. Whilst luxury vinyl flooring is waterproof, it’s still important not to soak your tiles and to mop up any excess moisture or spills to avoid damage.
