Cork flooring common four questions

-Question 1

If you only want to lay a cork floor in a certain room, how should you solve the problem of height difference with other rooms?

expert answer: the problem of ground height difference can be solved by using buckles. At present, there are two kinds of parallel buckles and high and low buckles. If the height difference is not very large, the parallel buckles can be used. If the height difference is large, the height buckles can also meet the needs.

– Question 2

Since the cork floor is relatively ‘soft’, will it be pressed on the top of the furniture, it is easy to push out the pit?

expert answer: due to insufficient surface hardness, the pressure of the object is pressed on the cork floor, the floor may be pushed out of the pit. Cork has the ability to restore its original shape after compression. As long as the furniture is removed for a period of time, the pressed ‘pit’ will gradually return to flatness. In fact, the deformation of an object is divided into elastic deformation and plastic deformation, and elastic deformation can be recovered, but plastic deformation cannot. If the elastic deformation value range is exceeded, it becomes plastic deformation and cannot be recovered.

In addition, the density of cork flooring is relatively small, even if the surface is wear-resistant layer, it is not comparable to laminate flooring and parquet. Therefore, it is best to put the furniture after 24 hours of installation, and to minimize the movement of people, padding the legs of the furniture to reduce the pressure. During the use, the owner should wear soft-soled shoes to walk on the cork floor to avoid bringing the sand into the room. The Three Gorges home improvement network recommends laying a foot pad at the door and promptly removing the sand that is brought into the room, reducing the pair. The wear of the floor.

– Question 3

paving cork flooring, what are the requirements for ground handling?

Expert answer: At present, cork flooring generally has two installation forms: adhesive type and lock type. Paste type means that the cork with a thickness of about 4mm is directly attached to the ground. This requires very high levelness of the ground. Otherwise, surface bulging and pothole problems are likely to occur in the later stage, so the ground is required to be leveled by self-leveling. The lock-type installation uses a composite cork floor with a thickness of approximately 10.5 mm. This type of floor needs to be suspended in a suspension, and the ground requirements are the same as for the laminate.

– Question 4

Cork flooring surface seems rough, is it more troublesome to maintain later?

expert answer: cork flooring is the cork glued together, the surface is relatively rough, with grooves, so it is easier to store ash, need to be more careful in cleaning. Ordinary cork flooring is not resistant to water and corrosion, and moisture is more likely to penetrate. Therefore, it is necessary to prevent ink, lipstick, etc. from getting on the floor, otherwise the dirt will not be easily cleaned. If it has not been treated with moisture and water, cork flooring is also prone to mildew in a relatively humid environment. Therefore, it must be used under reasonable environmental humidity.
