Benefits of Installing Bamboo Flooring

15 May 2019

One vital element in the outfitting of a commercial or residential structure is the flooring. It must stand up to whatever foot traffic goes across it while still looking attractive. Bamboo flooring is gaining in popularity for these reasons along with other ones. The benefits of this type of floor range from durability to being eye-catching. We explore all of the advantages of installing this type of flooring in the following details to help you understand if it is the right choice for your structure. 


Since bamboo is harder than oak according to the Janka Hardness Scale, it holds up well with heavy foot traffic and other daily wear. On top of this, bamboo is resistant to water damage, such as mould, mildew and staining, a bit more than other types of wood are that come in flooring options. 


Due the fact that bamboo grows to maturity in as little as three to five years, it is a sustainable choice in flooring. In comparison, hardwoods can take up to 20 years or so before they are ready to be harvested for their lumber. 

Uniquely Attractive

Bamboo has its own grain patterns to give the flooring that are a bit different from other wood flooring. Many property owners choose bamboo for their floors just for this reason. While attractiveness is important, you should really consider all of the attributes of this flooring to decide whether it is right for you. 


An additional advantage of bamboo flooring is that it complements many architectural styles. Whether you need to install it in a contemporary, modern, traditional, rustic or luxury residential or commercial structure, this flooring will keep a continuity in your structure’s style. 

Cost-Effective Flooring

If you are on a tight budget, bamboo flooring will fit in with it. It costs far less than other wood flooring options that are on the market today. In addition, the installation process is not complex, which further keeps the cost of this flooring affordable. 

Easy to Clean and Maintain

All you need to do is remove the dust and debris off the bamboo floors on a regular basis to maintain them. You do this by simply sweeping them with a broom or vacuuming them. Damp mop them only when necessary.
