What's new in cork flooring?

Cork flooring is a great choice for many homes, especially for the eco-friendly homeowner. Since only the bark of the cork oak tree is used in producing this floor covering, the tree continues to grow even after the product is removed from the tree. This process can be repeated every nine years, making this product a truly renewable resource. Comfort is another benefit you’ll find in this material, with more than two hundred million air cells present in each cubic inch of the flooring. And there’s much more to make this flooring stand out in your home as well.

Cork flooring benefits that matter

With the amazing number of closed-air cells in cork flooring, you won’t be surprised to find that it is extensively comfortable to walk on. In fact, as soon as you step on this flooring, you’ll notice a huge difference. That same benefit also means your floors will bounce back into shape even after extensive pressure has been applied. This is great news for those who have heavier pieces of furniture, or who might drop things from time to time. Further still, it helps to retain heat, working as an extra layer of insulation in your home. The warmer interior will resonate in a much lower utility bill too.

Naturally beautiful flooring

Since cork contains suberin, which is a wax that occurs naturally in this material, you’ll find it is resistant to both insects as well as allergens, meaning a healthier atmosphere for you and your family.

Contrary to what some people might say, cork can be a very durable and long-lasting floor covering. Of course, the original product quality, as well as cleaning and maintenance, can all affect the overall lifespan. However, there are some floors made of these materials that have been in use for over 100 years already.
