Pop The Cork For Cork Floors

Home Improvement
The floors in a house are easily the most used sections in any home. When you think of renovating or remodeling your home, refurbishing the flooring either in certain sections or the entire house is something that will. Especially if you have lived in a certain place for a long time you will want to replace the flooring to give your house a whole new look. A lot of people have carpeted floors in their homes. Though these look elegant they are also very high-maintenance and difficult to keep clean. Flooring should be stylish but it has to be sturdy as well.

If you have children or pets, the possibility of your carpet getting stained and matted down are much higher. It also tends to develop wear-patterns in high traffic areas. Hardwood floors tend to dent and develop scratches over time. Linoleum peels, edges become dog-eared, seams split open and it is prone to rips and tears. If the flooring of your house is not the way it should be or it makes you unhappy and reduces the value of your home as well then you should think about remodeling. Shabby surroundings make you feel shabby whilst bright, clean and well-maintained ones help in keeping you in high spirits.

If you are planning to replace your existing floor, cork flooring is an option you should take seriously. Cork is a very versatile medium that has been used in different ways for thousands of years. It is extracted from the bark of cork oak trees. Once a cork tree reaches 25 years of age it is ready to be harvested every 9 – 12 years and it has a life-span of 200 years thus making it a renewable source. This factor is especially relevant today when environment-friendly options are being sought in every avenue of life.

It is very natural to think of cork as a material that is used for capping wine bottles. Can it really withstand the stress of being used as a flooring option? Interestingly, it can! It is a very resilient product and can withstand high impact without damage unlike tile, hardwood or laminate flooring. It is able to withstand higher use and abuse than most other flooring materials. Its resilience makes it less prone to damage from furniture legs. Heavy furniture can safely be placed on cork flooring without it damaging the floor in any way. Brittle and breakable crockery can also be saved from shattering and cork flooring is useful if you have children around the house or tend to be a little energetic yourself.

Cork floors are water-resistant as cork contains a natural waxy substance called Suberin. What this simply means is that cork floors will not rot even when they are exposed to moisture or water over an extended period of time. This is not the case with laminate or hardwood floors. It is an excellent floor cladding for high-use and water-use areas like bathrooms and kitchens. They are practically maintenance-free. Stains, disintegration and discoloration are a thing of the past. Just wipe them and you are good to go.

cork floors offer several advantages over other flooring options and are becoming very popular with homeowners today. For some of the best Cork Flooring options, go to Icorkfloor.
