Newer cork flooring is much higher density than the old stuff. Still it does scratch and tear so I would not use it if you are hard on floors. I would not recommend for bathrooms. It is water resistant but not waterproof. I like cork floors for the looks and acoustic properties. I would not use it in my home but that is because with the boys and two dogs it would not be practical. I owned a janitorial service for many years. In the 1970's several clients had cork floors. There were not many companies that knew how to maintain them. In one office building the floor had been installed in 1948 and was still good. Newer cork is compressed to make it harder and more wear resistant and is usually finished with polymers or urethanes for for water resistance, wear and maintainability.

The newer laminate flooring doesn't hold up like it used to unless you pay $$$ for it. If you don't want to replace it then the best thing is to use a good commercial floor finisher which you can purchase at any store that sells industrial cleaning equipment.

Q:how do i level my floors?
I will assume you have some low spots, and not an over all slope to the floor. In this case, and if you have access to joists under the floor, you can tap shims in between the joist and the underlayment plywood. tap the shims in until the area comes back to level. You will want a helper with a level upstairs to tell you when. If the whole floor is sloping, you may have a foundation problem. At any rate, you will need to re-level the house with house jacks. This is not too difficult to do, but you need to be very careful with the plumbing and electrical connections.

Q:Anyone know how to fix a squeeky floor?
A squeak in hardwood flooring is caused by two pieces of wood rubbing against one another. One way to stop the sound is by reducing the friction of the moving pieces using a lubricant. I’m not talking oil here, but rather a dusting with ultra-fine graphite powder. This is available at your local hardware stores, and for the most part it’s used to free lock mechanisms. But if you pour a tiny bit of it on the floor so that it can work its way into the squeaking boards, it could very well reduce or eliminate the sound. If that fails, you can always try a pair of well-placed nails. You first need to pre-drill some slender holes into the wood, angled slightly towards one another. Then drive the nails in, being careful not to bang up the hardwood floor with the head of the hammer.
More info, please.
