If the washing machine or its hoses leak onto the floor, the leak can spread onto the hardwood in nearby rooms on the same level or drip down onto the basement. Leaks in your laundry room can lead to major repairs in other areas of your home. You can waterproof your laundry room floor to prevent problems in this area.
