What Happens if Hybrid Flooring Gets Wet?

Hybrid flooring is a new flooring option that combines the properties of Vinyl and laminate. It is waterproof in nature and is scratch-resistance. Its vinyl top layer protects the underlying laminate from moisture damage, making it ideal for homes with children or pets. While the laminate layer is highly resistant to scratches, meaning your floors will stay looking good for longer.

Another great feature of hybrid flooring is its wide range of designs and styles. With advanced printing techniques, manufacturers are able to produce hybrid flooring in a wide range of designs and styles, meaning you can find a floor to match any home décor. Although this is a new product on the market, it is very affordable compared to other types of flooring on the market. This makes it a great option for homeowners on a budget.

Some things to keep in mind with hybrid flooring:

  1. Waterproofness - One of the key selling points of hybrid flooring is its waterproof nature. This is thanks to a thick vinyl top layer that protects the underlying laminate from moisture damage. This is ideal for homes with children or pets, as accidental spills will not ruin your floors.
  2. Rigidity - Unlike traditional vinyl flooring, hybrid flooring is much more rigid and stable. This makes it ideal for high traffic areas of your home as it can withstand heavy wear and tear.
  3. Scratch-resistance - The laminate layer of hybrid flooring is also highly resistant to scratches, meaning your floors will stay looking good for longer.
  4. Wide range of designs - With advanced printing techniques, manufacturers are able to produce hybrid flooring in a wide range of designs and styles. This means you can find a floor to match any home décor.
  5. Affordable - Although it is a new product, hybrid flooring is very affordable compared to other types of flooring on the market. This makes it a great option for homeowners on a budget.

Benefits of Hybrid Flooring

  • 100% Waterproof
  • Easy to Install and Maintain
  • Stain Resistant
  • It is Versatile

Cons of Hybrid Flooring

  • Authenticity
  • Require a Flat Sub-Floor

But what happens when hybrid flooring gets wet? We say hybrid flooring is water resistant instead. For example, if you leave your bath on and end up flooding the room, you're going to get moisture under the flooring, which can lead to mould and bacteria growth. You're going to need to pull it out and replace it even though there's no visible damage.
