Cork flooring offers so much

One of themost appreciated benefits of cork flooring is the insulative factor it provides your home. Filled with millions of air pockets, it can create a strong barrier against heat, cold, and noise, all working to give you a far more comfortable home than you would have without it. With regard to noise, it’s especially beneficial between levels. When thinking about temperatures, you can expect to see a drastic change in your utility bills, reflecting more of your home’s heated or cooled air staying inside the home longer than ever before.
Eco-friendly cork flooring in Winooski, VT from Main Street Floor Covering
A very hypoallergenic material, carpet actually repels dust, dander, and many other small particles that can cause allergies to flare. It also contains a material known as suberin which is a natural insect and vermin repellant. Since the problems that come along with these creatures is never a factor, you’ll naturally breathe better, especially over time.

Eco-friendly homeowners will appreciate the fact that cork is harvested from the cork oak tree without actually harming the tree, which is never cut down. That bark grows again, allowing another harvest after a few years, and once the flooring is finished, it is also biodegradable, which is very earth-friendly.
