Q:How would this hold up to pet "accidents" (liquid). I'm afraid it would absorb the smell of urine. Also, would it hold up in an entry where there is a lot of traffic? Thanks!
A:Despite today's advanced technology, water spills, dirt and other abrasive substances can damage a wood floor's finish. Location, traffic patterns, how often the floor is vacuumed and cleaned, children and/or pets are all factors that influence wear and durability.
Q:From what country is the cork product produced?
A:This is a product of Portugal.
Q:Would this cork flooring hold up to pets? Big dog claws?
A:This will hold up relatively well. Like with all our flooring; dog nails should be trimmed regular according to your veterinarian's recommended length. Cork can be damaged like any flooring, in my experience, solid hardwood with a hardness rating of 40% harder than red oak will hold up to dogs as well as high warranty Laminate flooring. Lighter colors will hide scratches easier.
Q:Can this product be used in very dry climates? During the winter in CO, the air is very dry. We have an evaporative cooler, so during the summer it is very humid in our house. How would this product stand up to these extreme differences in humidity?

A:Half baths with throw rug by sink and toilet may be fine, however ull baths are too damp. Our vinyl plank is well suited for that application
Q:I think of cork being a susceptible surface to wear and tear. I think of cork coasters for instance, and being able to leave a fingernail imprint in the surface. Are cork floors the same way? Would it leave an imprint from the legs of a couch or table?
A:This product question would be better answered by our Sales Department, they are more familiar with all of our flooring products and can better assist you with your questions.
Q:Can you mop or clean cork flooring the same way you do laminate hardwood floors?
A:Our wood floors are manufactured for maximum durability, easy maintenance and finished with a high quality aluminum oxide water base urethane UV cured finish. This step protects the wood and helps keep the flooring looking beautiful longer. While highly durable, the finish is NOT considered indestructible. However, by observing a few precautions like setting up a regular cleaning routine and simple maintenance program to protect the finish, you can expect years of performance and beauty from your wood floor. All wood floors can show signs of wear over time. There are many factors that can affect the amount of wear. These include the size and lifestyle of your family and product location.

A:Cork/MDF/laminate @1/2" thickness will have an R-of approx. 1.18
Q:I have heard that cork flooring is easily stained. Is this true? Therefore is a kitchen a good place to use cork flooring?
