Bamboo Flooring:  A Popular Choice Among Homeowners

​The best of both worlds in a San Francisco restaurant satisfies those who can’t decide on a cuisine: www.sfchronicle.com by Micheal Bauer.

The article goes on further to speak of trends, and how some are short-lived, while others go on to become time-honored ones. 

Bamboo is will be around a long time, because it has a similar look and feel to one of flooring’s classics, wood. Unlike wood, however, bamboo comes from the fast-growing bamboo plant; the plant takes only three to five years to reach maturity, as opposed to trees, which can take up to 20 years, so it is capturing the interest of environmentalists.

Bamboo adds a stunning look to any room, and comes in a variety of colors and patterns. It’s durable, easy to care for, and moisture-resistant; just sweep, vacuum or damp-mop. If you need more thorough cleaning, avoid those waxy, shine-promoting soaps (preferably, use one that’s manufacturer-approved). While it’s moisture-resistant, please do remember it’s still a natural product, so avoid excess water, as it can warp the floor.

Contrary to what some may think, bamboo floors can be refinished. Here’s where bamboo and hardwood flooring part ways, however:
