Bamboo Flooring Benefits
Bamboo flooring is enjoying a new burst of popularity as recognition for its quality continues to grow both in the United Kingdom and throughout the world. One of the reasons that bamboo flooring has become an attractive alternative for homeowners is that it is even tougher and thus longer lasting than other, more traditional forms of hardwood flooring. This means that it will be an even longer length of time than is normally the case before bamboo flooring will require anything in the way of wood floor restoration.
Bamboo flooring is made using strand woven bamboo. Other popular timber flooring such as brush box, iron bark, jarrah and spotted gum are also recommended for their toughness and durability, and come second in strength to bamboo.
In addition, Bamboo flooring is very resistant to moisture and is also usually easy to install. Unlike most other forms of wooden flooring, bamboo is ideal for sufferers of allergies as it does not harbour many of the causes of allergies such as dust mites – compared to other forms of flooring such as carpeting.
Bamboo flooring is also highly recommended for the environmentally-conscious customer given that the bamboo is taken from fully sustainable forests and grows at a much faster rate than sources of normal wood. Bamboo flooring also has the advantage of being very attractive, both looking and feeling like a traditional timber floor, but is stronger and often comes at a more affordable price.
