Reasons Why Bamboo is a Good Flooring Choice
Bamboo flooring is a relatively new type of flooring on the market but it’s rapidly becoming one of the most popular choices amongst eco-conscious renovators and builders. Here’s why bamboo is getting popular as the flooring product of choice.
It’s Good For the Environment
Apart from being super stylish, trendy and looking almost identical to hardwood flooring, Bamboo flooring is made from natural vegetation making it extremely eco-friendly. Bamboo plants take only four to seven years to grow to full height as opposed to trees that make hardwood floors (e.g. gum trees), which can take many decades to mature.
It’s Durable and Easy to Maintain
Bamboo floors offer maximum durability. Bamboo flooring can withstand constant pressure in high-traffic areas and is less likely to incur unsightly scratches and dents. Bamboo also resists moisture and will not swell or warp like traditional hardwoods. It will also move less than some types of timber flooring that can show signs of gapping through the colder months.
Bamboo flooring is extremely easy to maintain! Waxing and refinishing are not needed for bamboo flooring. A simple vacuum, sweep or mop is more than enough to sustain this floor. But not only that, it is also hard-wearing which means that it is going to retain its natural beauty in your home for years to come.
It’s an Effective Noise Buffer and Thermal Insulator
Strand woven bamboo flooring, due to its density, provides such a quiet floor to walk and live on. Floating floors can be noisy to walk and live on, but not strand woven bamboo flooring. You’ll be impressed with the quietness. Bamboo flooring also insulates your house through the summer and winter.
It’s Versatile and Relatively Costs Less
Bamboo flooring is inexpensive, comes in a range of colours and is sure to be the smartest option you can choose for your home. It can also be laid over many types of sub-floors which can make renovating your house less stressful.
