The Basics of Cork
Cork actually comes from the cork oak tree, which grows naturally in Portugal and Spain. While many homeowners are just learning about cork, its use dates all the way back to ancient Egypt. Today cork is used in a wide range of products, from wine stoppers to footwear to floor coverings.
Cork is Durable
One of the many reasons that our clients choose cork is because it is so durable. It is both compressible for maximum comfort, while also being elastic, which prevents wear and tear because it can return to its original shape even after being walked on.
When you add the polyurethane sealants with the natural strength and durability of cork, it is easy to see that it can last for many years to come.
Cork Insulates Sound and Warmth
You will find that cork floors are becoming increasingly popular in churches, art galleries, libraries, and other locations that value sound insulation. Why? Because it does not absorb sound the way other surfaces do, but it also does not reflect it. The same properties keep it at a comfortable temperature when it’s hot or cold out.
Is Cork the Hypoallergenic Solution You’ve Been Looking For?
Homeowners looking for hypoallergenic solutions will be glad to find cork, which does not absorb dust. Not only does this keep allergens at bay, but it also makes it a very easy flooring solution to clean. The fact that it is impermeable to liquids also means that it does not grow mold.
What’s more, this entirely non-toxic flooring option does not off-gas, yet it is a natural fire inhibitor. If you want a flooring option that will keep your family safe from allergens, fire, and sound pollution, then cork might be just what you want.
