Why is bamboo flooring good for allergy sufferers?

Here are some answers to the question: Why is bamboo flooring good for allergy sufferers?

  • All types of bamboo flooring are extremely easy to clean. You will find it easy to sweep away dust and dirt particles from the surface of your bamboo floor.
  • Pet hair, dirt, dust mites and other allergens have nowhere to hide. In a carpet, they can be quite hard to remove.  However, with a bamboo floor, you will easily be able to clean them away.
  • Bamboo is a grass (not a wood). This means that it does not retain moisture in the same way as wood.  Consequently, it is less likely to allow mould and mildew to form.
