Noise decreases with cork flooring

Cork is used to create attractive flooring that can be placed almost anywhere in the home. Because it has a soft surface, it is ideal for kitchens and playrooms. Cork is a renewable resource that comes from the bark of cork oak trees that are planted in commercial plantations. Further, it is considered ‘green’ because cork is biodegradable, which means that it will disintegrate when discarded. Suttles Flooring is a cork flooring retailer that has a showroom in Macon, Georgia. We offer several flooring options, including cork, as well as installation and related services.

Advantages of cork

Since cork is made up of millions of air-filled chambers, it insulates a room. This means your heating and cooling bills decrease. Noise is muffled so you can enjoy a quiet room. Additionally, the cork naturally repels small vermin and insects because it contains a waxy substance called suberin. What’s more, cork:

  • Can be refinished.
  • Is hypoallergenic and antimicrobial.
  • Is easy to maintain and install.

Maintenance and installation

Traditional cork best suits an informal, casual decor. But more trendy cork floors are designed to look like hardwood, marble, and other sophisticated materials. Custom designs can be created by using different colors. As long as this flooring is well sealed, it is easy to maintain. You only need to sweep or vacuum it regularly, and damp mop, as needed. Spills need to be wiped up immediately to prevent staining.

Cork tiles can be glued to the subfloor while laminated cork planks are usually snapped together above the subfloor to create a floating floor. The flooring is covered with several layers of sealer if the product is unfinished. All projects can be completed by a DIYer. In future years, most cork can be sanded down, stained, and resealed. Top brands like Globus Cork Flooring, WE Cork, ICork, APC Cork, US Floors, and Heritage Mill offer many different cork flooring products.
