4 Reasons Why Bamboo Flooring is Awesome!
A relatively new type of flooring on the market, Bamboo is rapidly becoming one of the most popular choices amongst eco-conscious renovators, builders, and homeowners. Our experts at Flooring Wizards point out the following reasons why solid bamboo is a recommendable flooring material.
1. Eco Friendly
Apart from being stylish, trendy and looking almost identical to hardwood flooring, Bamboo flooring is made from natural vegetation making it very 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.
2. Very 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 with bamboo flooring. A simple vacuum, sweep or mop is more than enough to sustain this floor. But not only this, it is also hardwearing, meaning that it is going to retain its natural beauty in your home.
3. Reduces Noise and Insulates Your House in Varying Temperatures
Strand woven bamboo flooring, due to its density, provides such a quiet floor to walk and live on. Floating floors can be noisy, but not strand woven bamboo flooring, you’ll be impressed with the quietness. Bamboo flooring also insulates your house through summer and winter.
4. Cost Less For It’s Features
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 to make renovating your house less stressful.
