8 Benefits of Bamboo Flooring
Bamboo is a relatively new type of flooring on the market, but because of its eco-friendliness, strength, durability and cost effectiveness, it is fast becoming a popular option. If you’re still undecided on your flooring, here are 7 benefits of bamboo flooring that might help you make a decision.
#1. Eco-friendly & Sustainable
Bamboo flooring is made from a natural material that, unlike timber, is highly renewable. After bamboo has been harvested, the root continues to grow, and it takes only 3 to 5 years to grow into maturity. In comparison, some trees take 50 years to grow to timber harvest size. So, bamboo flooring make an excellent eco-friendly and sustainable alternative to timber flooring.
If you like the idea of timber flooring, but can’t justify the price tag, then bamboo makes for a great alternative as it can often be as much as 25 to 50% cheaper than hardwood flooring, all while still looking fairly similar, as well as still offering the luxury and character of a natural product.
#3. Easy Installation
Installing bamboo flooring in your home, office or commercial space is a pretty simple and straightforward process. It can be installed over a number of different subfloors, like wood or tile, and is often installed as floating floorboards.
#4. Durable & Strong
Bamboo flooring is extremely strong, hard and durable, making it perfect for high traffic areas. It can have a very long life expectancy if it is properly installed and properly cared for and maintained, keeping its fresh look for decades.
Bamboo is a great flooring option for people with allergies or asthma, as it doesn’t harbour dirt and dust particles, and is resistant to mildew and mould, that would usually thrive in carpet.
#6. Easy to Clean
All you really need to do to care for bamboo flooring is give it a daily sweep with soft-bristle brush, and clean it weekly with a timber floor cleaning product. And you can prevent scratches and damages by having a no shoes indoors policy, using protection pages on your furniture, cleaning spills immediately and keeping your pets claws short.
Available in a number of different colours, styles and finishes, bamboo flooring also looks really good. It can give you the beautiful look of timber, for a fraction of the cost, and adds a clean, modern aesthetic to any room.
