- Cork is a long-term renewable resource and its harvest is closely regulated and monitored.
- Cork flooring is mold, mildew, and rot resistant, and it also won't gather dust. This makes it especially attractive to those with allergies.
- This flooring style comes in many different tones and textures, and can also be dyed to match a custom color palette.
