Bamboo flooring is a popular choice for home and business owners. Although bamboo is commonly associated with tropical climates and panda bears, it is also an appropriate material for constructing buildings — and it offers several advantages as a flooring material. Bamboo flooring has an attractive appearance, ant it is environmentally friendly to grow and produce, durable, and easy to install and maintain.
Bamboo is a light colored material that can create a warm look when installed as flooring in a room. Natural bamboo grain is treated for a consistently colored floor that is inviting. The honey-colored flooring creates a sunny look for a room and complements many styles of decor.
Bamboo plants grow quickly and once harvested, the roots of the plant continue to produce new growth. So, bamboo is easily replenished and continually available to consumers without the environment suffering a significant loss. Bamboo can be harvested from a single plant repeatedly, making bamboo harvesting an efficient and environmentally friendly method of gathering material for flooring.
Flooring made from bamboo is strong and resists denting more than other comparable types of flooring, including blackbutt, jarrah, kempas and tasmanian oak. Bamboo is a long-lasting material that does not need to be repaired or replaced frequently. Bamboo resists wear and tear and can accommodate traffic from high-heeled shoes and other regular foot traffic. In fact, many manufacturers offer a warranty that covers their bamboo flooring for up to 25 years.
Installation and Maintenance
Bamboo flooring can be installed by several methods depending on the grade of the flooring and conditions of the site. Bamboo boards may be glued directly onto the floor, fixed to plywood or battons, or floated. Installation generally takes less time than laying a solid timber floor and can be completed in a short period of time depending on the size and shape of the home.
Installation of bamboo as flooring is relatively quick and easy, and caring for the installed flooring is simple, too. Once bamboo flooring is installed it is easy and quick to maintain with regular dust mopping and occasionally mopping with a damp cloth or mop.
Selecting bamboo flooring from the available flooring options can help homeowners create warm, inviting rooms in their home – but bamboo flooring does more than just look great. It stays looking great over time because it is durable and wears well, with little maintenance or care required. Selecting and installing bamboo floors can be easy – and guilt-free because, in this case, what is good for homes is good for the environment, too.
