Protecting the floor basement so that it will last

Now that the basement is fixed with new flooring according to my friend whose an architect it is better that I protect it with laminate flooring for basement. This procedure is essential because it can protect the flooring from moisture as well as fungal bloom. Last month after a vacation from Dubai I was shocked to see the basement flooded with water, after draining my wife and I decided repair the flooring as well as the drainage, we had contacted a friend who knows how to repair and maintain home interiors. And, so right now I am considering laminating the floor basement so that it will last longer.
