Rubber Mats: The Best Flooring Option for Flood Prone Areas

Flooding has been a major cause for concern in some parts of the UK; replacing your flooring every time a flood occurs is inconvenient and costly. Rubber flooring guarantees versatility and durability but above all, it can cope with general water damage.

Here are the main characteristics of rubber mats which make them ideal for areas that are susceptible to flooding:


Rubber mats can survive wet and damp areas. Hard-wearing by nature, they can maintain their form and effectiveness over long periods of time.


Water can be harmful in many different ways - water leaks can attack the subfloor from below; it may also seep through walls and ceilings; a high relative humidity can lead to the build-up of mould and mildew. Rubber is a non-porous material which means it can resist floodwater and moisture damage. It also has anti-microbial properties that can prevent bacterial and fungal growth.

Slip Resistant

Coefficient of friction, rubber can significantly reduce slips, trips and falls in wet and slippery areas.

Easy to Clean

For flood prone areas, laid or linkable rubber mats are highly recommended. This way, you can remove the mats and wash them down when flooding occurs and easily re-lay them once the area has completely dried out.
