When it comes to finding a beautiful floor that will survive everything your busy lifestyle throws at it, select Pergo laminates offer one handy feature: waterproof technology. Haven’t heard of waterproof flooring, or not sure you really need one in your home? Here are four situations that make you an ideal candidate for a floor that’s as resilient as Pergo Outlast+® with SpillProtect™ or Pergo® TimberCraft™ +WetProtect™.
1) You’re A Proud Parent (Usually)
Kids will be kids, and that includes spilled drinks or maybe even an indoor squirt gun fight. It’s all just part of growing up. And even the best sippy cup lid can’t be completely trusted on any given day. Pergo’s waterproof floors allow you to forgive and forget those accidents (even the ones that don’t seem so accidental at all). Thanks to patented Uniclic™ joint technology combined with pressed bevels and hydroseal coating, spills are prevented from seeping into joints. So, you can let your child clean up his or her own mess, even if you know that might take hours.
2) You Live in an Animal House
Puppies are the biggest culprit when it comes to moisture-related accidents, but let’s face it: caring about spills and messes is a low priority for even the most housetrained pets. Worst of all, a cat pawing over a flower vase or dog kicking a water dish usually happens when you’re not around. With a non-waterproof laminate, damage can occur within minutes and can eventually cause buckling or even broken joints. After time, water that is trapped under the flooring could cause mold growth or subfloor damage. On one of Pergo’s waterproof floors, you can rest assured there’s no permanent damage—even if you’re at work all day.
3) You Don’t Trust Your Appliances
A waterproof floor is the perfect solution for spill-prone zones like kitchens or bathrooms. Even your smaller kitchen items can cause jumbo messes: juicers that go rogue, coffee makers that overflow, and carpet cleaners that drip as you’re rolling them away. Technology simply hasn’t solved everything yet. However, Pergo’s waterproof floor technology is here to stay while the rest of the world seems to play catch up.
4) You Care About Appearances
Children and pets can’t take all the blame for every spill and splash in your home. We’ve all had messy relatives, careless party guests, and yes, even we’ve spilled a beverage from time to time. Because Pergo Outlast+ with SpillProtect and TimberCraft +WetProtect are guaranteed to hold up against the most random of liquid-related mishaps, you won’t have to be permanently reminded of every single mishap when you walk through your home. A waterproof floor is the perfect escape for anyone who doesn’t like regrets about what happened in the past. Isn’t that beautiful in itself?
