To begin with, cork flooring, as mentioned above, can effectively reduce noise levels in homes and businesses. Foot falls can be noisy and distracting, we all know that, and one way to quiet a space is to install quality cork flooring.
Cork is also eco-friendly, and this is an important issue for many consumers today. Cork actually comes from the bark of a tree, generally grown in Portugal, Spain, and along the Mediterranean coast. Today, most cork flooring is made from by-products such as the corks you find in wine bottles. These are ground up and made into sheets using high- pressure techniques to bind the particles together. These flooring systems are warm and comfortable underfoot, durable and easy to clean, and they are resistant to mold and mildew. The cork flooring we carry from US Floors is considered one of the very best cork flooring systems in the world today.
