Would it be okay to use a 24hr waterproof laminate flooring in a laundry room?

The flooring is made in Germany and is a total of 14mm thick. The floor material is 12mm and the attached pad is 2mm for a total of 14mm.

I think it would be fine but thought I would ask the board since the laundry machines may have vibration sometimes.

Thank you for your time. --73.190.xxx.xxx

I use a luxury laminate plank from a company called kronos, it works great on all floors that are smooth to start with, 2 laundry rooms with some leaks and all is well once air dried out. --184.59.xxx.xx

My handyman just installed some 12 MM Pergo in a bedroom - either his quality suddenly went south or that was a bad batch of flooring. It seemed to chip without my contact.

Since the stuff you have is water proof, you should be alright. I would never consider Pergo there. Truth of the matter we are slowing working ourselves out a huge shipment that we received and this one pallet is bad. The other three pallets is alright so I am thinking maybe it is old or got cold in the shipping of it. --24.101.xxx.xxx

Porcelain tiles are best option where expensive upfront where will last a long time along with easy to clean. In rental units porcelain stands the test of time. Any residential flooring is ok for owner occupied. --207.236.xxx.xxx

Not sure about the brand name you used but I just installed two bedrooms of Select Surface - German made - 14mm - From Sam's Looks great - Southern Gray with light gray walls - new 1/4 round - It identifies as Spill Defense but Water Proof time will only tell.

I think you want have any problem in the laundry room - BUT you know how some tenants are. --184.20.xx.xxx
