Cork is an excellent flooring material for a number of reasons. It is natural and environmentally friendly and it provides very good heat and sound insulation. It is also resistant to mould and termites.

Cork been used as a domestic floor covering for many years, and many post-war houses have glue-down cork tiles in bathrooms and kitchens.

While it can last around 20 years, once your cork flooring starts to lift and crack, it’s time to give us a call.

What is cork floor removal?

While your cork flooring may be easy to lift, it will be difficult to completely remove. This is because the cork will either be glued directly onto concrete, or will be nailed to a Masonite underlay and timber floor.

Here’s where we can help.

First, we’ll use one of our specialised cork floor removal machines to quickly lift and remove the cork.

Next, if the cork is glued to concrete, we’ll use one of our commercial-grade diamond grinders to remove the adhesive and have the concrete ready for re-laying. If the floor has an underlay that is fastened to the subfloor with nails or staples, we’ll make sure to remove every one of these.

Finally, we’ll clean and vacuum the area so that it is ready for immediate re-laying.

What are we able to help with?

  • All types of domestic cork floor removal
  • Grinding away cork floor adhesive
  • Removing nailed or stapled cork underlays
  • Cleaning and prepping subfloors for re-laying
