What are Water-Resistant Floors & Walls?
Water-resistant floors and walls are able to resist the penetration of water to some degree. Water-resistant floors and walls have properties that protect against water, but these floors are not waterproof, which is impervious to water. There are industry standards related to each. Water-resistant floors and walls will likely survive an encounter with water, but it will depend on the amount of water and how often the contact occurs.
