Cork floor cat vomit

Hey,

Does anyone have experience with cleaning cat vomit/hairballs off of cork flooring? We are about to redo the floors in our entire house with cork planks and we have five cats and want to know if the stain left by their vomit is particularly difficult to clean.

Thanks,

DFS

Your kidding, right?, if you are worried, DON'T use it, use a flooring that will clean up easy, like tile, hardwood or sheet vinyl.

Glad I just finished breakfast, thanks.

What type of finish will be on cork floor? Prefinished cork flooring is maintained like polyurethane finished hardwood flooring. All spills should be wiped up immediately. Cleaners recommended specifically for polyurethane finishes can be used. Or, 1/2 cup white vinegar in one gallon water can be used to damp mop, preferably misting cleaner on damp mop in order to overwet the flooring. Do a section at a time, buff dry with a dry mop or towel and move on to the next section. Reading and following manufacturer's recommendations for care and maintenance of cork flooring is best. As indicated, if in doubt, purchase a pet friendly floor like ceramic tile and seal grout or sheet vinyl flooring.
