In the flooring industry, bamboo is known for its amazing similarity to hardwood flooring
, even though it’s a grass material. We have found that the better informed our customers are in the intricacies of the product, the better able they are to make an educated decision that truly benefits their lifestyle.
To look deeper into this material, we’ll offer a few of the pros that you can look forward to and why this might be the best option for your home. It’s especially agreeable to our eco-friendly clientele and offers gorgeous design options as well.
As the world becomes more eco-conscious, homeowners must have the option to choose greener flooring materials such as bamboo. This all-natural material is a great option that still provides an amazing appearance and benefits like natural water-resistance.
Durability is great in bamboo flooring and you can compare uncarbonized natural bamboo to the strength found in red oak. If the bamboo is strand woven, it is often much harder. That means it is very resistant to just about every form of everyday wear, even if you have pets, children, or high levels of traffic throughout your home.
Cleaning and maintaining your bamboo is simple. Mild soap and water is the cleanser of choice and no specialty treatments are required. For those busy homeowners, it’s a great opportunity to clean and go, with no worries about scheduling a wax or resealing appointment.
In some instances, bamboo floors can be refinished, though it’s important to speak with the associates at our bamboo flooring store to discuss the possibilities and options. Many layers of finish are normally applied when these floors are installed, but that can be sanded to bring back a like-new look when necessary.
