Cork Flooring – Naturally Environmentally Friendly


Cork is an environmentally friendly, naturally renewable material. It is harvested from the bark of the Cork Oak Tree without harming it.

Cork is an environmentally friendly, naturally renewable material. It is harvested from the bark of the Cork Oak Tree without harming it. The bark grows back every few years. Cork is also biodegradable and will break down into the environment at the end of its life cycle.

Cork has antimicrobial properties. Cork contains a waxy substance called suberin. It naturally repels small vermin and insects. This makes cork floors resistant to the growth and colonization of these organisms, and can, therefore, help to promote the healthiness of an environment.

It’s a good insulator, effectively insulating the rooms of your home, which can help you save money on heating and cooling bills.

Cork can also be refinished when it starts to look tired. Saving money again, by not having to replace a floor but refurbish it.  It can be sanded and polished a number of times. See Cork and sanding and polishing
