Bamboo flooring is an alternative to traditional hardwood flooring that has become increasingly popular within the past few years. Known for being highly renewable, bamboo grows quickly and abundantly. It’s a great option for those Maple Grove homeowners looking to lessen their exposure to manmade chemicals.
Aside from its eco-friendliness, bamboo flooring offers a number of other advantages—namely easy maintenance, water resistance, and durability. Here we’ll be exploring this innovative material in depth. We encourage you to read on!
Bamboo Flooring Advantages
Easy to Maintain—Similar to hardwood, or other hardwood alternatives, bamboo flooring is relatively easy to maintain. Usually any dust or debris can be removed from atop it using a broom, vacuum, or damp rag. Homeowners also don’t have to worry about the eventual buildup of mildew or mold on their bamboo flooring like with tile.
Water Resistant—Compared to hardwood, bamboo flooring offers greater water resistance and is less likely to warp or stain when it comes in contact with moisture. Although we don’t recommend that homeowners allow water to stand on their bamboo flooring, bamboo doesn’t exhibit the same warping issues common to traditional hardwood.
Durable—When we think of bamboo flooring a soft, pliable material may come to mind. However, there are bamboo varieties available that are equally as strong and sturdy as hardwood. Bamboo ranks quite high on the Janka hardness scale and some bamboo flooring is even manufactured to be as strong as, if not stronger than red oak.
