An independent entity conducts a series of tests on each product and assigns an abrasion coefficient rating based on the test results. Brands that are rated AC3 are appropriate for residential spaces that have heavy foot traffic and commercial spaces. Flooring must pass tests for resistance to scratches, burns, stains, and impact and swelling under moist conditions. Laminate floors that fails a test don't make it to the marketplace.
Standard laminate floors resist water while waterproof laminate repels water for a short period. When laminate is labeled 'waterproof,' instructions for proper care can be found in the manufacturer's guidelines. Usually, the flooring is waterproof for about one day. After the given period, it can be damaged by standing water. With this floor covering, water and spills on standard brands should be cleaned up immediately. Waterproof brands should be wiped or mopped as soon as possible.
