How to Lay a Cork Floor | This Old House

Cork flooring is a soft surface that offers cushion as well as durability -- thanks to pre-applied finishes. Cleaning cork flooring means cleaning the surface finish. If the cork surface is sealed with polyurethane (most cork floors are), clean with water and mild detergent or white vinegar, then rinse well. If the cork is unfinished or waxed, follow the cleaning instructions for polyurethane but apply solid or liquid wax. Avoid polishes if you prefer a matte finish. To be perfectly safe, check with the cork flooring dealer or manufacturer to find out what cleaning methods they recommend for your product.

A cork floor cleaner designed specifically for cork flooring can be used to treat stains as needed. Always wipe up spills as soon as possible with a clean, soft cloth to reduce staining.
