Do you have a wet, leaky basement in Virginia?

Do you have a wet, leaky basement in Virginia? - Image 1

Our flooring is made of inorganic materials, which means it won't mold! It is slightly raised off of the floor, allowing any moisture underneath to dry up or run into your sump pump, keeping your basement and your feet nice and dry.

When I first started, I wasn't sure if I really believed the claim about no mold. What kind of products can sit in water and won't mold? I decided to test the products myself. I ran a bathtub full of water and I threw a piece of our carpeted flooring in there. I left the flooring in for a couple of weeks (no one uses this tub so it worked perfect) and after the weeks were up, let the flooring dry and attached it to the flooring we have in the office. I can't tell you which flooring tile it was any longer as it was a year ago. I have lost track of which piece it was becuase there is no difference between that piece and the rest that weren't sitting in water.

 

It still isn't a good idea to have your flooring sit in water, but I was sure impressed by the test I ran. When I own a house, this is the only kind of flooring I would like installed. I like the looks and I love the thought of not having to worry about my basement floor getting wet.
