Cork 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. Additionally, it 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.
