Cork Flooring Cleaning & Maintenance

Cork flooring is not only durable but it is also extremely easy to clean and maintain.

During the manufacturing process all possible care is taken to ensure a long life of the cork floor and many years of satisfaction to the user.

Our flooring is factory finished to the highest of standards so that little time will be spent on maintenance. All that is required to maintain a cork floor is regular vacuuming and light cleaning with a damp mop. Ammonia-based cleaners or chemicals must not be used to clean the floor.

A cork floor should be treated as any quality wood flooring. As durable as cork flooring is, it must be remembered that it is still a natural product.

Protection tips:

  • Protectors should be installed under chair and table legs.
  • When using furniture with wheels, the floor must have additional protection using mats.
  • Heavy furniture should have felt pads or non-staining glides or casters.
  • Steel wool or abrasives must not be used on the floor.
  • A quality doormat at the entrance should be used to help protect the cork floor from outside grit and sand.
  • Adequate protection should be taken when moving appliances or large pieces of furniture around the floor.
  • Cork, as a natural product, may change colour when exposed to direct sunlight. Use blinds or curtains to minimize the effect.

Following these tips will guarantee many years of enjoyment of one of the best natural floors.
