Cork floors do not absorb dust and because of that the maintenance of cork floors are easy and, therefore, do not cause allergies or create a risk to people who suffer from asthma or other respiratory diseases.
The presence of Suberin in cork makes it impermeable to both liquids and gas. Consequently, it is not subject to grow moldy.
It is cork’s gaseous composition that makes the cork both compressible and elastic and allows it to return to its original shape after being subjected to pressure. This is the reason why cork floors are extremely durable. When the cork is subjected to strong pressure the air in the cells is compressed and reduces in volume, when released from pressure the cork immediately recovers back from indentation.
