If you are looking for a hygienic floor that is easy to clean, then bamboo is a perfect choice.  There is nowhere for allergens to hide and grow.  You can see dust, dirt and pet hair immediately and sweep it way if necessary.


How are bamboo floors hygienic?

Bamboo floors are hygiene for a number of reasons. First and foremost, bamboo is a hard floor covering.  This means that dust and pet hair are easily visible and can be removed simply with a brush or vacuum attachment for a wooden floor. Secondly, bamboo flooring can be easily cleaned with gentle but effective pH neutral cleaning product. It is a much more hygienic option than a carpet, where dust, dirt and pet hair can be quite hard to remove. Finally, bamboo is a grass so doesn’t retain as much moisture as wood.  This means that it is less likely to allow mould and mildew to form.
