The Cork Glue-Down Tile Will Ensure the Tranquility You Seek While Meditating

Home Improvement
The cork tree has a life span of 250 to 350 years and has been used in European countries for flooring for more than a century. It has since grown in popularity in other parts of the world as people are becoming interested in using eco-friendly solutions that prove to be durable and affordable at the same time.

The first harvest is referred to as “virgin” and this is obtained after the tree is about 20 to 25 years old. The next layer is extracted after nine years and the subsequent ones are referred to as “amadia.” Since the bark regenerates after every harvest without harming the tree, cork is considered a renewable source that is environment friendly. The cork tree does not require much rain though a lot of light is necessary. It ideally grows in altitudes up to 1,400 meters above sea level.

One of the types of flooring options available is to lay cork glue down tiles. Read the instructions carefully before using these tiles to get the best finish. Since this is a natural material, color variations may be found in each carton or package. Try to use tiles from different cartons and lay them out at least 48 hours before installing, to let it acclimatize to the space.

Cork floors are ideally used in yoga studios, public and private gyms, dance studios and school gymnasiums in the U.S.A and in Canada. This is because several benefits have been attributed to cork; one of which is the cushion that it provides along for users. The hallmark of Cork flooring products is the impact resistance it provides which enhances the tranquility in the room. The sounds are easily absorbed and many people find that they can concentrate better when they work out on these types of floors. The other advantage of using cork is that it has anti-microbial properties. People sweat profusely when they work out. Sweat, while good for the body (and some say the soul) is not healthy for flooring. This is no problem for cork. With 3 coats of factory finish and two coats after installation, a cork floor is beautifully designed to withstand the acidic aspects of sweat – as well as do away with lingering odours associated with fitness areas.

If you are a health aficionado, you will take pains to find out more about this wondrous product and use it in your home especially in the kitchen and other areas where you spend long hours on your feet. Elder people find that the cushiony effect of cork protects their feet and joints and does not cause as much discomfort as when they stand or walk on hard flooring.

Before you purchase this product read up on its advantages and disadvantages. You will find that the merits far outweigh the demerits. You can easily maintain and care for cork flooring. Decide on whether you prefer to use the cork glue down tile or the floating floors. Take into consideration the type of existing floor in the space and check if it can be used as the sub-floor. Some rooms may require a cork underlay especially if you are interested in sound proofing the room or enhancing the acoustics. Make sure to purchase cork floors from a reliable source and look for discounted offers. Use the internet to research and make your selection.

If you require more information on the cork glue down tile or about the general advantages of cork floors , contact iCork Floor LLC. Make the most out of using environmental friendly products.
