Cork Floor In The Kitchen Offers Cushioned Comfort And Protection

Home Improvement
Cork has been used in Europe for many years as flooring material and with advancements in technologies it has become popular in other parts of the globe. It can be laid as cork glue down tiles or floating flooring and comes in various factory finishes that are ready for installation. Now a days it is possible to click-together this type of flooring and use them as you use laminated floors. Cork floating or glue down floors prove to be a good solution to use in the kitchen. One of the reasons is that it can be made water proof. Cork is excellent when dealing with problems such as mites and allergens. Cork is very durable and its strength is equivalent to wood and therefore a popular choice. It is also easy to clean and maintain.

Cork proves to be an excellent insulating material due to the cellular structure that resembles a honey-comb. It consists of numerous cells that are filled with air which makes it buoyant. Noise pollution is reduced and people who suffer from allergens can safely tread on these floors. People who spend long hours in the kitchen ideally select cork flooring for their homes. Cork’s beauty can enhance the décor by mixing and matching the various cork flooring materials with the furniture and use colors that will blend and compliment the space.

Since cork is a sustainable and renewable resource, it proves to be environmental friendly. The feel of the cork floors is similar to walking on carpet. Cork trees are popular in Portugal, Spain, Morocco, Algeria and Asia. The left over scraps that are normally obtained when wine corks are made are then used to make sheets and tiles that are used for flooring material. The material is shredded and then compressed into tiles. Cork floor in the kitchen, bathrooms and laundry rooms are ideal solutions for homes today. Various patterns can be obtained to blend with the furniture and paints used. It is important to use a sealant of good quality to ensure that the shape and pattern is maintained.

Cork can withstand compression to nearly 50% and recovery by 95%. People who have dogs and pets find it ideal as flooring material. Cork is impermeable to moisture and therefore resistant to rot and odors.

Maintaining cork flooring is not difficult. The cork floor should be vacuumed or swept regularly to get rid of dust and grit. If the flooring is properly sealed with polyurethane, a damp cloth or mop is sufficient to wipe the floor. Use a mild detergent to the water or a neutral cleaner and avoid abrasive cleaners or waxing. You should use furniture pads or coasters under the furniture legs. If indentations occur due to wearing of stiletto heels or other types of footwear, a hot damp cloth should be applied to recover the original shape of the cork.

Cork floors are versatile and used in many homes and offices today. Contact iCork Floor LLC to get their low quote on Cork Floor in the Kitchen and other rooms in the home and enjoy a green product in the home.
