Can anyone recommend a type of flooring for a room in our basement that occasionally floods. Obviously, traditional carpeting is out.

I am considering vinyl sheeting (although there is no guarantee that water won't get underneath the sheeting). I have also heard about a type of removable carpet squares that are made for use in areas that occasionally flood. The can apparently be easily removed for cleaning and drying.

Does anyone out there have any info. on these removable carpet tiles?

Thanks for your help!
