Why Purchase New Bamboo Flooring?
Bamboo flooring has emerged as a trendy alternative to conventional hardwood flooring. It is not only strong and durable; it is relatively easy to install and maintain. It is available in two natural light color options – natural light cream color and a darker carbonized amber color – as well as many more dyed color options. Another advantage is that it does not expand or contract due to heat or cold. It is extremely resistant to a harsh environment.
Bamboo can absorb large amounts of water. It is very resistant to moisture. In addition, it is stain resistant and easy to clean. Keeping your bamboo floors polished and quickly cleaning away wine or liquid spills further increases its stain resistance.
Manufactured bamboo floors usually come in planks featuring either vertical- or horizontal-grain alignment. In vertical floors, the component sections are situated vertically on their thinnest edge and then press laminated side to side. The result is a lined, consistent appearance.
Bamboo is a health-friendly flooring option. This is because it is treated with a minimum amount of chemicals during the preservation process.
Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants in the world. Some species are capable of growing up to three feet per day. Moreover, a bamboo plant only takes three to five years to mature (compared with nearly 100 years required by hardwood trees). This extremely fast growth rate and lower maturity period means that bamboo plants are far easier to replace than other flooring options.
Refinishing bamboo floors is a fairly simple process. Normally, its installation requires many layers of finishing coats to safeguard the wood itself. However, if required, sanding down the surface and then adding more finishing coats will give you the appearance of brand new flooring.
