“Hi Virgin Carpets! We’re looking for waterproof flooring options for our kitchen. Would LVT be a good option? Thanks!” -Adriana S.

If you’re in the market for new flooring, you may be considering luxury vinyl tile (LVT). After all, it offers a variety of styles and textures at an affordable price. But one of the most important questions potential homeowners have is if LVT is waterproof.

In this guide by Virgin Carpets and Flooring, let’s take a look at what LVT has to offer when it comes to preventing water damage.

What is Luxury Vinyl Tile?

Luxury vinyl tile is a type of resilient flooring that combines synthetic materials with a wear layer, which gives it both durability and style. It’s made up of several layers of vinyl and a protective top layer that makes it both scratch and stain-resistant. LVT also offers homeowners a variety of design options, from wood planks to ceramic tiles.

Is LVT Waterproof?

In most cases, yes. LVT has a waterproof core, which helps protect against water damage. However, it’s important to note that this doesn’t mean the flooring will be impervious to liquid spills or seepage. If you are looking for a completely waterproof option, make sure to discuss your needs with a professional installer.

Additionally, proper installation and maintenance should always be employed in order to prevent water from seeping underneath your new tiles! If you have questions on how to properly seal, maintain and clean your LVT flooring, always consult a professional.
