How to waterproof your Bathroom & Kitchen flooring


While every room in your home is susceptible to spills and splashes, the most at-risk rooms are naturally your bathroom and kitchen. Waterproofing these rooms is important for ensuring that you avoid problems such as leaks, damp, and mould. Of course, the simplest solution to this is to purchase waterproof flooring. We have plenty of flooring options that are 100% waterproof at Leader Floors. From luxury vinyl flooring such as Xonic by Krono Original to specialised laminate such as Impressive & Impressive Ultra by Quickstep.

If you’re not ready to replace your flooring just yet, you may want to consider waterproofing your existing wood flooring.

Sweep and vacuum the surface to clear it of dust and debris.

Sand the surface with a medium-grit sandpaper.

Clean and vacuum the surface once again.

Lay the first coat of sealant using a wool applicator for a smooth and even finish.

Air the room out and leave to dry completely.

Smooth out any bumps and wrinkles in the first coat with sandpaper.

Sweep and vacuum again.

Lay the next layer.

Repeat for the final layer.
