FAQ - Cork & Linoleum
1. We’ve got sealed cork flooring in our lounge. However, it’s not particularly shiny. What can I do?
The most suitable product for sealed cork floors is emsal Perfect Shine, preferably if it is applied regularly, diluted 1:1 in water. The glossy effect takes a while to develop.
2. I’ve got unsealed cork flooring. What’s the best way to clean it?
Uncoated cork flooring needs to be protected with an impregnating product. emsal Laminate is ideally suited for this purpose. Whenever you wet-wipe your floor, add some product to your water and make sure the cloth is only slightly damp.
3. Why can’t I use emsal Parquet on my cork floor?
emsal Parquet contains wax that is unsuitable for cork flooring, whereas emsal Laminate is ideal. The best way to clean a cork floor is to add some emsal Laminate whenever you give it a wet wipe, as this has an impregnating and therefore protective effect.
4. We’ve had new linoleum flooring laid in our house, but it’s a bit like laminate flooring, because it was laid in a click-and-lock process. What’s the best way to clean it?
Any floors that have been laid under a nut-and-groove principle are particularly sensitive to moisture around the joints and edges. The best way to protect those modern click-and-lock linoleum floors is to use emsal Laminate from the very beginning. Add emsal Laminate to the water each time. Wipe the floor thoroughly with a well-drained cloth that is only slightly damp. Regular use has an impregnating and thus protective effect on the joints and edges.
