A natural substance found in cork called Suberin, is a waxy material that is a key component in the makeup of the cells found in cork. Suberin is responsible for the moisture-resistant nature of cork and cork flooring. It is also insect-resistant as well as adding a level of fire resistance.
Although cork flooring is resistant to moisture, it is still a good idea to mop up excessive wetness as soon as possible as such levels of wetness can have ill-effects in the long term.
Cork flooring is available for both glue down applications and also in a click together style, where it is mounted on a high density fiberboard core similar to that of laminate flooring. Both types of installation methods have advantages and disadvantages.
