Benefits Of Cork Floating Flooring

Home Improvement
Cork floating flooring is a very desirable commodity. Who wouldn't want to have a floor that is warm, quiet and is soft under foot. Forna floating flooring has been certified by numerous quality control companies in North America and Europe. All iCork Cork flooring products are made without formaldehyde.

Cork flooring is great for dog owners as the surface is anti-slip and allows pets easy traction. Scratching is much less likely to be an issue as natural compression properties of the cork reduce scuffing. Cork is unique and incredibly elastic. Moisture cannot pass through cork and it is naturally rot resistant as well as fire resistant. These unique properties cannot be duplicated as they are products of cork's unique honeycombed structure of cell membranes and the abundance of a waxy substance called Suberin. Cork is also easily renewable as cork oak can live up to 200 years and outer bark may be harvested several times throughout its lifetime with very little harm done to the tree.

A large benefit of having a Cork floor natural environment is being Eco-friendly. It is a self sustaining renewable and reusable resource. Owners of cork orchards typically do not replant an orchard for several generations. Cork oaks never cut down and used up, they are stripped of their bark which then grows back slowly over time making them very efficient.

Durability and resiliency are important factors when determining a material to use to install a floor. Cork has superior durability when compared to many other types of flooring. Elasticity of cork allows it to withstand pressures of everyday use whether it is light or heavy. Suberin aids in fighting microbes, coincidentally cork is very high in Suberin. It is Suberin that gives the Cork Oak it’s Latin name – Quercus Suberin. This makes cork very resistant to any rot damage that may occur, it also helps in holding the cork together. Mold and mildew cannot create colonies inside cork do to the unique structure and high concentration of Suberin. Anyone susceptible allergies or asthma may benefit greatly from cork.

Due to being factory finished with three coats of polyurethane cork floors are easily washed as dirt and grime cannot easily stick. There is no need to ever refinish cork flooring. To refresh your cork floor and increase the luster is as simple as applying some water based polyurethane. With the polyurethane making the flooring water resistant it is great for use in kitchens and baths. If a large amount of water is spilled it is still recommended to quickly mop up the liquid to prevent any damage to underlying sub-flooring. Caulking around the perimeter of any flooring is very important for that reason, regardless of how impermeable the flooring itself is.

When creating a Cork floor natural environment several shades of honey and natural oak are available, they are easily stained to match any desire needed. Natural grain of the bark is kept to keep a natural color palette. For numerous reasons cork is an excellent and common choice in a very diverse group of setting such as schools, hotels, shops, offices, hospitals and homes.

With the renewed focus on being green, a Cork floor Natural environment has become very popular of late. For the best selection in Cork Floating Flooring , go to iCork Tiles.
