Rubber flooring is widely used in commercial settings like hospitals, gym weight rooms, and cafeterias. Rubber flooring is gaining attention as a viable flooring for homes as well.

There are pros and cons to rubber flooring. Here are a few things to consider before you purchase your rubber flooring:
- Rubber flooring is sound-absorbent, water-resistant, and comfortable under the feet.
- Easy to install. It can be glued down but it’s not always necessary because it lays flat and stays put on its own.
- The material of this flooring can also help to kill mold and microorganisms that might try to grow on or under the material.
