Cork Flooring For Kitchens Pros And Cons

Cork flooring is known as the "pyramid tip of the floor". Cork is mainly grown on the Mediterranean coast and the cork oak in the Qinling area of my country at the same latitude, and the raw material of cork products is the bark of cork oak (the bark is renewable, and the cork oak tree industrially planted along the Mediterranean coast is generally 7-9 years old. The bark can be picked once), which is more environmentally friendly than solid wood flooring (the whole process starts from the collection of raw materials to the production of finished products), sound insulation, and moisture-proof effect will be better, giving people an excellent foot feel . The cork floor is soft, quiet, comfortable and wear-resistant. It can provide great buffering effect against the accidental fall of the elderly and children. Its unique sound insulation effect and thermal insulation performance are also very suitable for use in bedrooms, conference rooms, libraries, recording studios, etc.

The Advantages of Cork Flooring

First of all, kitchen tiles cork is warm and comfortable. It feels much more comfortable than ceramic tiles and wooden floors, and it is slightly elastic. It is kept at around 25° all year round, not cold, slippery, or hard.

The second is sound insulation and noise reduction because its honeycomb internal structure contains air, so the effect of sound absorption and sound insulation is very good.

Furthermore, because of its non-slip, non-cool, and elastic characteristics, it can provide passive protection for the elderly and children from accidental falls, which can greatly reduce the damage caused by accidental falls and knocks.

Finally, there are several test certificates for wear resistance, non-slip, and formaldehyde emission. You can take a look.

Surface wear resistance: National standard ≤ 0.15, Yamanjia cork floor measured 0.05, anti-skid coefficient up to 6. The national standard formaldehyde emission is ≤0.124, and the measured formaldehyde emission of Yamanjia cork floor is 0.006, which is far lower than the national standard. It is healthy, low-carbon, and environmentally friendly, and it can be installed and lived.

The Disadvantages of Cork Flooring

1. Low wear resistance and compression resistance

The cork ceiling panels have poor wear resistance. After being squeezed by an object, the pit will be pressed out. If it exceeds the range of elastic deformation, it will become plastic deformation and cannot be recovered. Therefore, if the sharp heel is to step on the cork floor, the pressure resistance that occurs cannot be recovered.

2. Not easy to clean

The cork flooring is made of cork viscose. Although the cork floor visually presents an original ecological feeling and brings a good decorative effect to the living room, its texture makes the cleaning of the cork floor impossible. This requires proper use and maintenance, and more careful cleaning and care.

3. Not suitable for whole house laying

Since the cork flooring is difficult to clean and care for, it is not suitable for laying the whole house. The best floating cork flooring is laid in a quiet environment. If it is installed in the kitchen or living room, the cork floor will be severely rubbed and pressed, and it is easy to have problems with the cork floor.
