Your basement is an extremely valuable area if you treat it correctly. Waterproofing is crucial to keep your basement and the rest of your home healthy. However, what comes next, is important too! If you decide to finish your basement, you should know that the flooring you choose is very important! Here are 5 reasons why you should choose flooring for your basement.
Basement flooring is not organic!
- But wait, this is a good thing, I promise. Using organic materials (wood) in a basement setting where moisture and water are more prone to be, will cause mold and fungi growth. Basement flooring on the other hand is inorganic. Basically, this mean that the materials of our flooring won’t support mold and fungi growth, even if your basement does get wet.
Basement flooring is quick and convenient
- One of the greatest features of our basement flooring is that the tiles snap into place and can easily be replaced or moved around. This is great if you accidentally spill a glass wine or your kids spill juice on a tile – you can easily remove the tile, and replace it with a clean one. Or maybe there’s a high traffic area in your basement where the tiles are getting run down but the closet tiles are in mint condition? Simply unsnap the tiles and swap them for the look of a brand new floor!
Basement flooring can get wet
- Not that you should go and dump a bucket of water on your floor, but our flooring is meant to withstand water! The tiles are specifically designed to be slightly elevated above the concrete floor in case of any unwanted water in your basement. With the elevation, the water can then drain to your waterproofing system.
Basement flooring comes in carpet, tiles and a “wood” look
- Not only can you get type of flooring you want, but you can also choose between multiple neutral colors that’ll match any room.
Basement flooring really does work!
