Benefits Of Bamboo Flooring
As a tremendously renewable natural resource, bamboo is among the fastest growing plants. It is a perennial evergreen and a part of the true grass family. Mainly grown in eastern and southern Asia, it is a vital part of the local economy.
This material is fairly easy to maintain and only requires regular sweeping or vacuuming to remove dirt and debris. Occasionally, a damp mop can be used to clean the floor. Additionally, it can be cleaned with a non-alkaline, non-wax, bamboo or hardwood floor cleaner.
Made out of natural vegetation, the bamboo plant is an extremely renewable resource. It has a tremendous capacity to grow to full development in a period of 3 to 5 years. This is a lot more rapidly than hardwood trees that can take 20 years or more to become mature enough to use as flooring.
Bamboo is a bit more resistant to warping, water damage and stains than hardwood materials, even though it remains a concern.
Certain types of bamboo can be tremendously hard, strong and durable. For example, un-carbonized, natural bamboo that was harvested and manufactured properly is as hard-wearing as red oak. Bamboo that is strand woven is usually made even that much harder.
Bamboo flooring is priced virtually the same as the majority of hardwood floors. You will typically find bamboo that ranges roughly between $2 and $8 per square foot. Do not be swayed by bargain basement materials because they are usually lower in quality.
This trendy flooring material can be used to almost instantly elevate the stylishness of any space. It has a feel and look that is comparable to hardwood yet it has its own distinct features. This can go a far way in adding a remarkable quality to a room.
Types of Bamboo Flooring
With bamboo flooring, it is important to learn about the different types of installation, grain and color and texture.
Types of Installation
Picking bamboo flooring based on the type of installation is a wise decision. This is because some types of installation are more intricate and more expensive than others. A few different methods of installation can be used for bamboo flooring, they include a glueless-click installation, a glue-seam floating installation and a nail or glue down technique.
Types of Grain
There are three main types of grain in bamboo flooring: vertical, horizontal and strand-woven. Each has distinct characteristics that will assist buyers in deciding the type of bamboo to install. The type of grain that is ultimately purchased largely depends on the overall look the individual is attempting to achieve.
Types of Color
Buyers have a number of options when it comes to color. The options are natural, stained, carbonized and direct print. Each has distinct properties to assist homeowners in deciding which one to buy. Irrespective of the type of color chosen, the durability of the bamboo is still the same; the only exception is that the carbonized color is softer than the others.
