Although there are many varieties of bamboo, bamboo flooring is most often made from moso bamboo. Despite the fact that bamboo is a grass, it can be refinished similarly to floors made from trees. They are manufactured by fusing together many individual strips of bamboo with heat, adhesives, and high pressure.
Most often bamboo flooring is sold with various protective coatings. These coatings add to the strong, durable construction of most bamboo floorboards.
Bamboo flooring, compared to many other flooring solutions, is extremely hard-wearing. Its durability can match or surpass traditional hardwood or engineered timber flooring. Plus, termites also happen to hate bamboo, because it contains indigestible fibres. In addition, bamboo has a little more water-resistance than other natural flooring solutions.
One major downside to bamboo flooring is that bamboo is capable of getting scratched. It can also crack when exposed to rapidly changing levels of humidity. You should also avoid certain flooring options that are constructed with the use of potentially toxic adhesives.
Ultimately, bamboo is a great option for anyone looking to not spend too much on durable, long-lasting flooring. As a natural, renewable resource, bamboo is a way for you to choose a responsibly-harvested flooring.
