What is a cork floor?

A cork floor is a unique and durable floor covering which is becoming increasingly popular due to its many benefits. Cork is one natural material which is obtained from the bark of the cork oak, which mainly in Portugal and Spain grows. It is a renewable and durable material that grows again after the bark is harvested.

Advantages of cork floor:

  1. Environmentally friendly: Cork floors are an environmentally friendly option because cork is a renewable resource. The cork is produced from the bark of the cork oak, which can be harvested from 9 to 12 years without damaging the tree. Cork is also biodegradable and can be recycled.
  2. Comfortable: a cork floor feels soft and comfortable underfoot, because the material is resilient. Cork is naturally heat-insulating and sound-absorbing, making it a comfortable floor to walk on.
  3. Durable: Cork floors are durable and long lasting. Cork is naturally resistant to mold, bacteria and insects and is also water resistant. A highly visible cork floor can last for almost years, making it a good investment in the long term.

Disadvantages of cork floor:

  1. Sensitive to scratches: Cork is naturally soft and resilient, but is therefore vulnerable to scratches and damage. It is important to be careful with furniture and heavy objects placed on the floor to avoid scratches and dents.
  2. Vulnerable to moisture: Although cork is naturally water resistant, it can still be damaged by prolonged wear and tear from moisture. If water remains on the floor, it can soak into the cork and cause mold to form. It is therefore important to clean up any spills immediately and maintain the floor regularly.
  3. Limited design options: Cork is available in a limited number of colors and patterns, which can make it more difficult to find a design that fully suits personal preference and style. In addition, the color of cork can lighten over time due to exposure to sunlight and changes in temperature, which can make it difficult to maintain a uniform appearance.

Remove cork floor without damaging underfloor heating

A cork floor is often placed on a floor with underfloor heating. Because a cork floor is directly connected to the concrete substrate, this ensures optimal functioning of the underfloor heating and no heat is lost, unlike floors that are loose on the subfloor. Everyone naturally wants to be able to optimally enjoy the underfloor heating without using too much energy. Some care is required when removing a cork floor that is placed on a floor with underfloor heating. The last thing you want is for a pipe to become damaged and a leak to occur. So leave this to a professional.

Costs to remove cork floor

Removing a cork floor costs average between €13 and €16 per square meter. These costs do not include the removal of the waste. Disposing of a cork floor costs €26 per 100 kilograms.
