you can see the result clearly that the laminate flooring is water absorption,the vinyl flooring is waterproof ,but do you know the reason ?
Now, let me tell you why, laminate flooring are made with wood fibers, laminate flooring boards are not water-resistant and aren’t recommended for floors that are likely to see a lot of moisture. Moist conditions make the boards swell, and the edges of the boards can curl upward when they push against each other. Consequently, they aren’t the best choice for laundry rooms or bathrooms. Vinyl sheets and tiles, on the other hand, are waterproof, and while the same can’t be said of vinyl plank flooring, it’s more water-resistant than laminate flooring. In general, vinyl flooring handles humidity, dampness and spills better than laminates.
