Bamboo is a natural flooring material for homeowners who not only want the warmth and beauty of timber but also value the conservation of the world’s forests.
Bamboo has received a lot of attention since its introduction in the 1990s. Let us take a look at why it is often thought of as the environmentally-friendly flooring choice.
Bamboo is Sustainable and Eco-Friendly
As the world’s tallest grass, bamboo is an entirely natural material. It is also a fast-growing renewable grass. Bamboo only takes about five years to mature and is available in vast quantities. Hardwood trees, on the other hand, can take 30 or more years to mature.
Additionally, when bamboo is harvested it continues to grow from the root, eliminating the need for replanting.
Bamboo is Durable
Bamboo is not only hard, it also has high tensile strength, which means it can be stretched. It is considered a similar strength to traditional hardwood floors, however strand woven bamboo flooring is remarkably durable. Over twice as hard as oak, strand woven bamboo is made of shredded bamboo fibre strands woven together and then compressed under extreme heat and pressed together with an adhesive.
Bamboo is an Affordable Natural Flooring
Generally cheaper than hardwood, bamboo is a natural and cost effective alternative that offers the warmth and beauty of a natural product.
Bamboo Flooring is Easy to Clean and Maintain
For regular cleaning, all you need is a soft-bristled broom and dustpan to remove dust, dirt and pet hair. This should be done daily in high traffic areas such as hallways and living spaces.
Once a week, mop your bamboo floor gently in a circular pattern with a microfibre mop and PH neutral wood floor cleaner.
Highest quality of service!
"Their service, the products they used, their care and attention to the job and the end product were of the highest quality I've ever seen. I would not hesitate to use them again before even considering anyone else in wollongong after the service and dodgy work I've had or seen done from places like [name removed] etc over the years.
Tony Di Milia Flooring thank you for everything!"
