We all know the importance of eco-friendly choices for us and our planet. But did you know the floor you use every day can be sustainable and eco-friendly? At Brother’s Flooring we offer different eco-friendly flooring options for your home or business, and today we are highlighting cork.

Cork flooring is made from the bark of a cork oak tree. The bark is stripped without damaging the tree or cutting it down. It is then ground and compacted into bonded flooring sheets. Cork is not only eco-friendly, but has many other advantages as well:

It’s a natural cushion. Cork flooring is not only soft, but it has a natural give to it that makes it ideal for every day rooms as well as children’s rooms or playrooms, where playtime on the floor (or falling down!) is a priority.
    • It’s a money saver. Cork is also a great insulator. This quality not only helps reduce noise, but can reduce your heating and cooling bill as well!
    • It’s clean. Cork is not only clean for the environment, it is clean for your home! It does not trap in allergens and dirt, and actually has antimicrobial properties that increases air quality. It is also very easy to clean.
