Bamboo Flooring

[an error occurred while processing this directive] Bamboo flooring is a material that is becoming extremely popular at the moment and with very good reason. It has a quality that goes beyond that of simply being a beautiful wood, it is also extremely hardwearing and is environmentaly sustainable too. Because it is a fast growing grass (not a tree), it can be harvested without destroying the actual plant itself, enabling a far greater supply with little environmental impact. It is also extremely hardy and requires little in the way of fertilizers or pest control poisons to ensure a good crop.

As well as the natural color of Bamboo itself, there is another primary darker color that is available as a bamboo flooring option. This color bamboo is produced by a process of "smoking" (high pressure steaming actually) the wood until it reaches a dark amber or honey blonde look. This method is called "carbonization". Either way, bamboo always display a graining and texture unique among all of the hardwood flooring materials.

Maintenance for bamboo flooring is similar to that of other flooring materials. Don't get the floor too wet and use a proprietory wood floor cleaning product for best results.
