How to make your cork floor appear brighter?

Gorgeous cork floor by DIYIs it easy to keep your cork floor clean? Yes, it is – if you remember to clean it regularly by simply sweeping and vacuuming. Your floor will look beautiful for many years to come just by performing some basic housework.

Is your cork floor not as shiny as it used to be?

If you feel that cleaning alone is not enough, take a good look at your floor. Do you think that it’s not as shiny as when it was first laid? The daily wear and tear that your floor endures can make it less shiny. Thankfully, this is easily taken care of. The first step to making your floor brighter is by applying polyurethane.

Quality water based polyurethane will create a clear seal over your cork floor, making it less vulnerable to water, staining and moisture. For an unfinished cork floor, polyurethane should be applied 3-4 times and on a finished cork floor, just the once.

Will your cork floor look brighter now?

Not yet – you have to apply another coating first. You can choose between:

  • Wax finish
  • Commercial finish

Wax finish

Waxing your cork floor can protect it against stains, spills and scratches. The waxing agent can give your cork floor a shimmering, shiny look. However, you may need to apply wax twice a year, depending on the level of traffic – the higher the traffic, the more waxing is required.

Commercial finish

For an area with a heavier traffic, you need more than just waxing your floor. A heavy duty finish might be necessary, in this case. It will create a barrier which will allow your cork floor to withstand the harsh daily wear and tear, whilst giving your floor a smooth and shiny appearance.
