If you or your family members suffer from allergies, cork flooring may provide relief. Cork flooring is hypoallergenic — where carpets and other flooring materials can harbor irritants, cork is naturally resistant to mold, mildew, and allergens. Its durability and maintenance requirements are comparable to those of hardwood flooring.
Cork is also environmentally friendlier than many other flooring materials. Harvesting cork is quite different from harvesting hardwood because only some of the bark is removed. The tree continues to grow and thrive, and a single tree can be harvested repeatedly. It's a renewable resource that provides an attractive and resilient flooring material.
Cork is softer than hardwood, and that makes cork flooring less susceptible to scratches and dents. Its insulation properties make it ideal for upper levels where it can control heat and noise.
