When it’s time to remodel or update your laundry room, the most common requirement is waterproof flooring. This is completely understandable as utility sink splashes, and moisture from wet laundry and leaking machines can cause laundry room floors to take a beating.
- Basement – Back in the day, all laundry rooms were consigned to a basement corner. And many of them remain there today. While laundry room plumbing is easy to access in the basement, unfortunately, many basement floors are left unfinished. This can be a real problem when moisture from wet laundry and leaking machines accumulate. Unsealed cement basement floors can absorb moisture and cause mold to begin to grow.
- Main Floor – Since the 1990s, many homes being built or remodeled have moved the laundry room upstairs to the main floor. Often combined with a back entry or mudroom, the more convenient location also gets significantly more traffic. Muddy shoes and boots can add to the dampness already familiar in the laundry room.
- Upper Floor – And recently, builders have moved the laundry room upstairs again as they consider where it makes the most sense when designing newer homes. If your laundry room is located on an upper floor nearer to or even inside bedroom closets where clothing is typically stored, water seepage from leaks or overfilled machines could cause damage to your home’s first floor.
