Wood and cork are both natural flooring options which make commercial spaces look warm, inviting. You can choose a color, pattern, and modular size you prefer, but wood and cork will always provide a one-of-a-kind look.

Hardwood and cork floors are easily customized for your style, whether cool-toned and trendy or warm and traditional. Selecting wood or cork for your retail store gives you a style advantage over competitors, as well as serving as an ergonomic surface for staff and shoppers.
Public education facilities have the unique challenge of maintaining a quiet atmosphere in the midst of high foot traffic. Wood and cork both provide quiet acoustics for these community spaces.
Wood provides a style unmatched in warmth and hospitality for office spaces. Consider it for your waiting room, conference room, or personal offices.
Cork flooring is shock absorbent, making it a safe, cushioned surface for little movers. It also naturally absorbs some of the noise of groups of students and teachers for less sound pollution in hallways and classrooms.
The luxury of hardwood comes with an additional cost, and it is one of the more expensive flooring options Advanced Commercial Flooring offers. However, cork is a more cost-effective natural flooring option, with a price comparable to luxury vinyl tile, vinyl composite tile, or linoleum.
Once you add up the cost of all the materials needed to install hardwood or cork, including the adhesive, underlayment, and prep materials, it is often more cost-effective to hire a professional. Expert installation will also keep your flooring planks and tiles from shifting later on, saving you time and money overall.

Wood floors should be swept daily to keep abrasive debris from building up on the surface and damaging the finish. Depending on the traffic on the floors, you should also consider mopping or vacuuming wood floors daily to weekly. When mopping, be careful of how much water you use, as more than a misting can damage the natural wood material.
With wood flooring, you should also consider periodic polishing and refinishing to keep your floor in top condition.
Cleaning cork flooring is fairly simple with regular sweeping and vacuuming. Experts recommend damp mopping occasionally with cleaner labeled safe for use on pre-finished wood. You should also be careful of using too much water on cork floors, as the moisture can be problematic.
Since cork is a natural material, UV light can fade the color over time. Using drapes or blinds to block direct sunlight will maintain the vibrancy of your flooring.
Finally, periodically refinishing your cork flooring keeps it durable against scratches.
