Cork flooring consists of some of the latest and most exciting developments in green flooring. Like bamboo floors, a cork floating floor offers more than just a great wood flooring solution. Cork flooring offers environmentally-friendly flooring that's made to last. Cork flooring is eco-friendly, as cork trees do not need to be felled when the materials for a cork floating floor are harvested. Cork trees are unique in that the wood for a cork floating floor be extracted from the tree's bark, not the interior. That means the cork trees that produce the materials for cork flooring are able to continue to live and able to continue converting harmful CO2 emissions into oxygen.
Because the texture of a cork floating floor offers a unique "bounce," cork flooring is ideal for those with toddlers. Sturdy, but also soft and forgiving, cork floating floors will keep kids safe when they stumble. In addition, many are surprised just how impermeable a cork floating floor can be. Cork flooring is excellent when it comes to resisting spills and stains, another fact of life when it comes to living with young children.
