How To Prevent Cork Flooring Imperfections

In addition to the multiple benefits you'll get from cork floors, they do also offer a few unique challenges. The very same softness that makes cork flooring so comfortable to walk on also means that your cork floors can be dented or scratched by heavy furniture. This is easy to work around, however. Invest in furniture pads to place beneath the corners of your furniture so there is no risk of denting. If you foresee a lot of room arranging in your future, make it easier on yourself and your cork floors by felting the edges of your furniture, making for an easier slide that won't scratch the surface of your cork flooring.

While cork flooring is fairly resistant to water, like with any wood floor, prolonged exposure is not recommended. You don't need to take any special steps to prevent that exposure, just make sure you clean up spills as soon as they occur. If you want to install cork flooring in your basement or bathroom, make absolutely sure there are no potential seepage or flooding problems.

Cork floors can also be scratched if left covered with dirt or sand particles for an extended period of time. This is a similarly preventable issue – if you're sure to clean up spills as soon as they happen, you'll be guaranteed a lifetime of beautiful cork flooring.

Are rubber furniture pads safe for cork floors?

Cheri posted on: November 3, 2008

Can dents be relieved(or removed) from cork flooring? How about warm(or hot) air from a hairdryer? Thanks for ANY help you can give. Cheri

Stacey posted on: December 19, 2008

Hi Cheri and Leo,

To answer Cheri's question, cork has a tendency to fill in small scratches on it's own sometimes. If the dents are bad enough, and you have solid cork floors, you can also refinish them like hardwood. If you have veneered cork, it probably can't be refinished. I don't believe that using a blow dryer will make a difference. Check out our forums if you need more help with this repair.

Leo, I recommend felt or carpet backed furniture protectors.

My wife is constantly making me move our furniture. Our couches, desks, TV stands you name it she makes me "re-arrange" it. I found sliders at the Sherwin Williams Store and they are called "EZ Moves." They are soft, plastic pads about 6 inches long. If you put them underneath your couches even if your moving furniture over vinyl, cork, laminate, hardwood, even carpet the "EZ Moves"slide anywhere you want it to go easily without damaging your floors. I can move everything by myself. They're a great product

I'm glad I found this website and blog about cork floors. My neighbors are installing a cork floor and I was impressed by how beautiful it is. I have very heavy furniture but hopefully those EZ Moves will help prevent denting and will make rearranging an easy task.

I love my laminate floor. I always hated laminate flooring because of the clicking sound it would make but I found the best product recommended by my local flooring retailer (thanks Jason) We installed the FloorMuffler which must be the best underlayment for laminate floors because I can't hear any clicking. dell studio 1735 slot dvd burner

Cork flooring is not that resistant to water from my own mm6 knitwear experience I can say that and would definitely avoid it.

If you want durability then it's not the best choice you've got, wood or tile flooring is still the most typical and affordable type I know. - Feed the Children
