Cork removal requires using a specially designed blade and jackhammer to separate the floor covering from the sub floor.
While cork itself is soft and in most cases easily lifted, the adhesive is quite hard and well bonded to the sub floor. If laid on concrete, the adhesive will need to be ground off the slab to allow for re installation of a new floor covering.
If however, the cork is laid on a timber sub floor, then both the cork and underlay will need to be removed. Underlay is normally a thin layer of Masonite sheeting nailed or stapled to the sub floor. Once this is completed, all the nails holding the underlay on sub floor will also need to be removed.
