Cork flooring offers quite a few excellent benefits to any homeowner. The main benefit of cork flooring in your house is its durability. High heels or furniture do not represent any damage to your flooring. Cork flooring is characteristically protected with urethane, durable, and free of formaldehyde. When cork is exposed to weight or pressure, the air between chambers inside cork reduces the volume significantly. When cork is not subjected to pressure, it returns to its original shape. The cellular composition of cork prevents cork from effects of resistance and impact more than other hard flooring surfaces.
