A:All of our flooring products are designed to be installed in climate controlled environment. Thank you for your inquiry
Q:Can the cork flooring be used in a bathroom?
A:Yes, Cork is acceptable for installation in a powder room. It is recommend to put a throw rug by the sink because an excess water can damage wood. You will need to wipe up any water that sits on the floor as soon as possible. However a full bathroom that is showered in everyday may not be the best location for cork. Often there is too much water on the floor or humidity that can be absorbed into the flooring resulting in board edge cupping. Resilient and Tile floors are a better choice for these areas. Thank you for your inquiry
Q:Would this cork flooring be practical if you have pets? Can it be mopped or sanitized?
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.
