Bamboo flooring is growing in popularity all over the world because it is elegant, inexpensive and environmentally friendly. Here are a few points to ponder on why you should consider bamboo flooring for your own home and what you should look for when installing it.
Caring for the Environment
Bamboo is a type of grass found mostly in Southeast Asia from where it is also mainly exported in order to convert it into flooring. Before it becomes flooring material, it is treated rigorously in order to get rid of the insects and bugs that may be in it but also to strengthen and make it more durable.
Bamboo grows to maturity in four to five years and also regenerates itself once it is harvested. This is unlike trees, which need many years before they can offer a substantial material to use for any purpose.
