Water damage in basements is a costly, messy, and utterly inconvenient job to deal with. While we can’t stop Mother Nature from intruding into your home, we can offer a flooring solution that will be easier to maintain, look great, and cost a lot less than replacing damaged carpeting. With EVA foam tiles, you can have an aesthetically pleasing floor that can get wet but not damaged when water seeps into your basement.
EVA foam is essentially made from the same stuff your beach flip-flops are made from. So obviously they can handle a little water! When the tiles get wet, you just pull them up (since they need no adhesive to put down), let them dry, and when the sub-floor is dry again, lay the tiles back in place. That’s it. You can’t say that about any other flooring application!
We have several styles of mats that our customers have found work well in basements. As basements tend to be colder than the rest of the house, warming them up with carpeting might be a temptation, but you can achieve the same effect with our carpet top mats. The coziness of a carpeted texture greets your feet, but underneath is 3/8″ of EVA foam, padding your footsteps, the kids’ play areas, even a workout space.
Our most popular mats are our wood grain mats, and trust us, no one will believe you that they’re foam mats and not hardwood floors…until they step on them. With several different styles of wood grain, you can choose one that fits your current decor or change things up with a new look. The classy, elegant look of a wood grain foam floor will make your basement area a place you look forward to spending time in.
If the basement is used primarily for the kids’ play areas, our solid color EVA foam mats may be your best choice. They come in varying thicknesses and colors, so you can get just what fits your kids and your space. Because they all lock together like pieces of a puzzle, the covered space can grow as your kids do – just order a few more mats to reconfigure the space and make it larger.
At the end of the day, you want a comfortable, inviting living area in your basement, and you can’t have that if you’re concerned about water damage. Our EVA foam mats are a great solution: low-cost, low-maintenance, attractive, and best of all, one less thing you’ll have to be worried about.
