Many Benefits Can Be Accrued With Use of Cork Flooring

Cork flooring is proving to be all the rage today as homeowners extol the properties of cork and find it very cost effective. It is attractive, practical to use and very durable. Another reason for its popularity among environmentalists is that it is a green product and many people are interested in the fact that it is a renewable source. Below are some of the advantages that can be accrued with this type of flooring.

One can appreciate the silence that is provided by this type of flooring. When you use hardwood flooring, you cannot avoid hearing the thump of footsteps. The cellular structure of the cork allows it to absorb sound and this makes it a great choice for the upper floors of a home. We know when hardwood flooring is used, it can cause loud sounds to penetrate downstairs when people move around.

Cork provides excellent thermal insulation and when installed directly on concrete the floor remains warm to the touch. This proves ideal in winter time as the cold concrete can feel very cold. When you use cork you are able to conserve energy and reduce electricity expenses.

Cork contains Suberin which is a powerful substance that keeps mites and insects at bay. It repel termites and other bugs that normally make their home in or on hardwood flooring. Cork is resilient and can be used to ensure that your home is termite-free.

Use cork floors if someone has problems with allergies as this type of flooring proves to be naturally hypoallergenic. It also resists mildew and mold. Many people find it difficult when they have to suffer pollutants and allergies in their homes, let cork help reduce the worries.

When you remove heavy furniture that is placed on cork floors, you will notice that the material bounces back even though it forms indentations initially. Cork is therefore very durable and resilient and takes quite a bit of beating. It is also long lasting. In our opinion this makes cork ideal for large homes and in upstairs rooms.

Cork flooring is available pre-finished or unfinished. If you prefer to use your own topcoat, you have the freedom of that option and can apply multiple urethane layers once the installation process is complete. Generally pre-finished flooring has a vinyl topcoat that proves easy to clean. You can maintain both the pre-finished as well as the unfinished variety as both are easy to clean and will look attractive for many years. Homeowners can make a choice depending on the size of their family and maintain this durable flooring effectively. If there are children and elderly members in the house, it is advisable to use cork for its various merits.

Cork is the product of bark that is stripped from the cork oak tree. It is a renewable source as the tree is not injured or damaged in any way when the bark is harvested. The tree is allowed to regenerate its bark undisturbed for nine years until the newly mature bark is once more ready for harvesting. This makes it an excellent choice for environmentalists.

Cork Flooring is proving to be popular in many homes today. iCork Floor has various selections of cork floors to enhance the décor of your home at affordable prices.
