Advantages & Disadvantages
The main advantage of bamboo flooring is that it is very sturdy while still being earth-friendly. Bamboo is described as sustainable because unlike most hardwood species, bamboo is a fast growing plant that replenishes quickly, so old-growth trees won’t be harmed in the harvesting process. Natural bamboo flooring is ranks high on the Janka Hardness scale, just above white oak and ash, so you can be sure to enjoy your floors for years to come. If you’re looking to create a modern atmosphere in your home, bamboo is a great choice as it is available in a subtle grain pattern. Additionally, it is quite easy to clean.
On the other hand, bamboo can be susceptible to scratches. If you are planning on having bamboo installed in a high-traffic area of the home, make sure it is sealed properly. This will help to prevent scrapes and scuffing and to give you peace of mind of your investment.
