In addition to the high temperature and hot weather that summer brings, strong convective rainstorms will also follow. This kind of thunderstorm weather will not only affect our daily travel, but even damage various building materials in the home, and wooden floors bear the brunt. So when we choose and install the floor, we must pay attention to the waterproof and moisture-proof problem of the floor.

Flooring can be divided into three categories: solid wood flooring, laminate flooring, and solid wood composite flooring according to different structures, each of which has different advantages and disadvantages.

Solid wood flooring is a floor decoration material formed by drying and processing natural wood. It presents natural log texture and color patterns, giving people a natural, soft, and affinity texture. However, solid wood flooring has higher requirements for paving, and once the paving is not good, it will cause a series of problems, such as noise. If the indoor environment is too humid or dry, the solid wood floor is prone to arching, warping or deformation.

The solid wood composite floor is made of interlaced laminates of different tree species, which overcomes the shortcomings of solid wood floor wet expansion and shrinkage to a certain extent. The dry shrinkage rate is small, and it has good dimensional stability. Natural wood grain and comfortable foot feel. Therefore, the waterproof and moisture-proof effect is better than pure solid wood.

Laminate flooring is generally composed of four layers of materials, namely wear-resistant layer, decorative layer, high-density substrate layer, and balance layer. Compared with solid wood flooring, laminated wood flooring has been strengthened by hot pressing to overcome the weakness of dry shrinkage and swelling of solid wood flooring, and its dimensional stability is also stronger than the first two. But the environmental health performance is much worse.

There are many floors, but the moisture and water resistance of the floor is a major process that needs to be overcome. So what kind of floor can really be waterproof?

The key waterproof and moisture-proof aspects of the usual waterproof floor are mostly wax-sealed, so it has the effect of blocking moisture. Some have made a layer of ground waterproofing at the bottom of the floor, which can prevent the moisture from the road from destroying the floor, and finally achieve the actual effect of moisture prevention. This is the so-called waterproof floor.

This waterproof can only be said to be moisture-proof, and it is only used in ordinary ventilated environments, but it is slightly insufficient when used in some special venues.

Nowadays, there is a new type of floor on the market called graphene two-dimensional floor. This kind of floor is used, mainly using graphene and stone powder as the base material, and the surface is covered with a super wear-resistant polymer PVC wear-resistant layer. A new type of floor processed by hundreds of processes. The main raw materials for the production of two-dimensional graphene flooring are graphene and stone powder. Graphene is a nano-scale two-dimensional carbon material. Through research, it is found that the use of graphene's thermal conductivity, antibacterial and antibacterial, water-proof, flame-retardant, and flexibility, and other mechanical properties, such as thermal conductivity and flexibility, will be developed by combining new materials and technologies of graphene with the floor. The graphene two-dimensional floor that has multiple advantages at the same time.

When you buy the floor, considering the waterproof and fireproof situation, this kind of graphene two-dimensional floor is a good choice!
