Compared to other hardwood flooring, it takes only three to six years for a bamboo to fully mature while other trees such as oak trees, usually takes about 90 years to fully mature. Thus makes bamboo a better renewable source. In China, where most bamboo varieties are imported, the bamboo exportation is one of the flourishing industries. They see to it that the bamboos they provide for flooring have high quality and are really durable.

 Technology improves its quality

 Bamboo floors are heated using steam treatment in a process called carbonization. Through this process, the desired color and sheen of the bamboo flooring is achieved. Carbonization also improves the durability of the bamboo flooring which makes it more appropriate for its purpose. To those who do not prefer the carbonized bamboo flooring, they may use those that are either bleached or painted. Aside from the color and tone, manufacturers have also developed ways to improve the bamboo flooring’s texture and finish. This gives consumers better reason to make use of bamboo flooring in their houses.

Cost and efficiency

Unlike other flooring materials, bamboo costs less than hardwood. You may still be convinced that there is hardwood flooring superior to bamboo, but they also cost much more than bamboo. Bamboo floorings do the same job and you enjoy the same quality, but you do not exhaust your pocket. Aside from that, you also do not have to spend extra on its maintenance because the cost of bamboo flooring maintenance is minimal.
