A bamboo flooring is a natural surface that has most of the properties of a solid wood floor and in others similar to oak, depending on the type.
It shares many of the benefits of wood flooring, in the same way as its weaknesses. The more this material is known, the better informed is the one who wants to install it, the better you can take care of and maintain your investment.
Here are the benefits of using Parquet Flooring:
Bamboo products are made of natural vegetation. The bamboo plant is a highly renewable source that is able to reach maturity in as little as 3 to 7 years. This is much faster than hardwood trees that can take up to twenty years or more to reach maturity.
Positive Social Impact:
It also grows in non-forested natural areas, and its extraction is done manually, selecting mature plants, which grow back on the same stem, work is done in general by small communities that then work the material, giving labor and roots to populations that have been doing this work for decades.
The use of natural materials is an important trend in the world of construction (and in general, considering that we are all more informed of the negative effects of climate change). To the extent that people are more informed and aware, they demand products that reflect their values looking for consistent materials.
There are certain types of bamboo that are used for floors and other construction elements that are extremely strong, hard and durable. Natural, non-carbonized bamboo that has been correctly harvested and manufactured has the hardness of oak. The strand woven bamboo flooring is hard.
The durability of the floors is directly associated with a form of responsible consumption since it is a material for many years of use.
As time goes by, bamboo floors can discolor like any wood from the effects of the sun, scratch, mark. Fortunately, solid bamboo flooring material can be polished, which allows the thickness from the surface which in our floors determines that at least three times can be polished, this being a floor for at least 30 or 40 years, depending on the care and use.
Woven Parquet material is more resistant to damage than can be caused by an accident with water and stains of other materials than are the wooden floors since they are less porous. However, water is always a problem on wooden floors.
