Cork Flooring the Right choice for your Floor


 
Home Improvement
No one will always want to stay in a house that has an old floor, no matter how many years you have stayed in that house; at one point you will want to replace the floor. Perhaps your house may have a carpet that is covered with pet stains, coffee, juice or wine stains. A carpet gets matted and wears out with time. Your house may also have hardwood floors full of scratches and dents or linoleum that is peeling up at the edges and has rips and tears.

No matter the type of floor in your house. If you find yourself not comfortable with what you are seeing and walking on, then cork flooring is your correct solution. A bad floor lowers the value and appearance of your home. Henceforth, cork flooring is your best option if you want to replace your floor.

But before then, what is cork flooring?

The use of cork stretches to thousands years ago, while it has been used for different purposes, use of cork for flooring cannot be left out. Cork is known for its wonderful features hence perfect for flooring, sound proofing and use in wine bottles.

What is the durability of cork?

Thinking about cork durability, many people recall wine corks or small cork plugs that are commonly used to plug bottles of different kinds. Some people may have the experience of cork used in wine bottle breaking off into wine. If this is your experience, I know you doubt if cork is strong enough for a flooring option.

The answer is a big yes! In fact, cork is among the strongest flooring options present in the market today. It is less affected by friction than hardwood, laminate and tile flooring. As a result, cork stands out to be used in very harsh flooring conditions. It has an incredible resistant and really robust to pressure. When you happen to stand on cork floor with heel shoes, the floor will develop a dent. With the release of pressure exerted, the floor recoils back to the original shape instantly leaving no lasting mark. However, with the rest of flooring like a carpet, heavy furniture will leave a mark when the furniture is removed.

Throwing heavy items or dropping heavy materials on the floor, they are prone to crack or break. However, cork floor is different, no mark will be left. This makes an excellent property if you are that person who is clumsy or you have little children.

What is cork strength to water?

Cork contains a natural substance called Sobering that is waxy. The substance makes cork impervious to fluids hence cork will not rot if it is exposed to water or fluids. Therefore, soundproofing floors are a perfect choice for bathrooms and kitchens. Cork is the right seal around; this is evidenced by the use of cork to stop wine bottles. So, next time you spill something to a cork floor, do not worry but simply wipe it up and the mess is cleared.

Soundproofing floors are naturally germ resistant hence no allergens can manage to hid on the floor? With cork flooring, the floor won’t absorb dust or molds, fungi to grow. Cork is easy to clean and is not produced with harsh chemicals thus it is the right choice for people for those who suffer from allergies.
