Crafted from the compressed bark of the cork oak tree in Portugal, cork has been used in flooring for over one hundred years. The polyurethane is factory applied.
Fine quality tiles require a maintenance procedure. To properly care for your cork parquet tiles we recommend:
Never saturate the floor with water - always keep water to a minimum. Excess or standing water can damage a cork floor.
Vacuum thoroughly removing all sand, dirt and loose grit.
When required, damp mop the floor using a well wrung out mop with a mild solution of Ivory liquid detergent and water.
Polyurethane finished floors may be buffed to remove scuffs and restore the visual aspect of the finish. See "Cork Buffing Instructions".
Furniture should be equipped with flat glides that will not damage flooring. When moving
heavy furnishings and appliances care should be taken to protect the flooring against
damage. High heel shoes can visibly damage any flooring and care should be taken to minimize this.
