Cork Is A Fantastic Hardwood Alternative.
Cork flooring is not exactly hardwood, yet it is also difficult to classify in any other way. The professionals at Edmonton Flooring are very familiar with cork and we recommend it to anyone who is considering a new floor for their home.
Most people know cork as that soft material that is used for message boards in the kitchen or to seal up their wine bottles. Believe it or not, cork flooring uses that same soft material, but treated in a very special way to make it beautiful, durable, and very unique.
Cork Is Perfect For Many Rooms In The Home.
Most people like a hardwood or carpeted floor in their living rooms, and we always recommend those two options for the larger rooms in the home. But a cork floor is soft and resists cold better than any hardwood. That means that a cork floor is comfortable enough to be used in a playroom, a child's bedroom, or even a kitchen.
We recommend using cork anywhere that you want to feel that warm, soft layer of protection under your feet in the mornings. Until you have actually stood on a cork floor, it is impossible to appreciate just how unique and comfortable it is.
We Specialize In Floating Cork Floors.
At Edmonton Flooring, we specialize in floating cork floors that are comfortable and last a very long time. A floating floor is one that is not glued or nailed down to the plywood sub-flooring. A floating cork floor is able to expand and contract with the weather without buckling, and it also creates a pocket of air between itself and the plywood that acts as insulation from the cold. Let our professionals show you just how beautiful and functional a floating cork floor can truly be.
Maintaining Your Cork Floor.
Because of the nature of the cork material, owning a cork floor requires some special maintenance considerations. You should always use a towel to clean up spills immediately to prevent staining. You should also move your furniture around every few months to prevent permanent indentations in the cork.
You should never use a wet mop to clean your cork floor. We recommend having one of our experts come in a couple of times each year to inspect your cork floor and schedule an annual application of the protective coating that keeps your cork floor safe.
If you want something unique in your home, a beautiful cork floor may be the perfect solution. Let our experts show you all of your cork floor options so you can make the best decision for your home.
