Top 10 benefits of Bamboo Flooring?

Bamboo flooring is becoming increasingly popular with homeowners and for commercial properties because of its strength, durability, eco-friendliness and sustainability.  Here are the top 10 benefits of bamboo flooring:

1. Eco-friendly
Bamboo is a renewable grass that grows to maturity within five years and regenerates itself, making it extremely sustainable. It grows much faster than hardwood trees (which can take decades to reach maturity).

2. Durability
Strand woven bamboo is exceptionally strong and durable (over twice as hard as Oak flooring), making it a perfect choice for both domestic and commercial use.

 3. Dimensional stability
The way that bamboo flooring has been constructed gives it is dimensional stability, meaning that it does not expand and contract as much as some hardwood floors. This means it can be used with underfloor heating, loose laid over an underlay, installed in areas of changing temperature and humidity, and installed over almost any subfloor.

4. Quick and easy to Install
Engineered bamboo and solid bamboo flooring are both dimensionally stable so do not need fixing in place. They can be either loose laid / floated over an underlay, glued down using flexible flooring adhesive or secret nailed or secret screwed down to the subfloor.  Bamboo flooring is also available with a click fitting system, making the installation process even more straight forward.

 5. Inexpensive
Bamboo is an inexpensive alternative to hardwood flooring but still offers the luxury and appeal of a natural product.  It can be found for around a third cheaper than an average hardwood floor.

 6. Easy to maintain
Bamboo floors are very easy to look after. For best results, sweep with a soft brush to remove dust and dirt, and then clean with a PH neutral wooden floor cleaner.  Prevent any damage or scratches by removing shoes before walking on your floor, apply anti-scratch felt pads to the bottom of furniture and wipe up spills immediately.

7. Wide range of colours and styles
Bamboo flooring is available in a variety of different styles and colours, including: vertical bamboo, horizontal bamboo and strand woven bamboo, solid and engineered structures, and colours such as natural bamboo, carbonised bamboo and a rustic effect.

 8. Hygienic
Bamboo floors are ideal for allergy sufferers. They do not collect dust particles like carpets do.  Bamboo flooring is also resistant to mould and mildew that can grow in some deep pile carpets.

9.Matching accessories available
Mouldings and flooring accessories such as pipe covers, skirting, stair nosing and thresholds, are available to match all types of bamboo flooring, which will help to add the finishing touches to your room.

10. Aesthetically pleasing
Bamboo floors give a natural, luxurious appeal and can help to add warmth, and character to any home or commercial space.
