Bamboo flooring is not a new flooring option, but its tangible characteristics as a sustainable flooring source are more evident now than ever before. If a green home building or remodeling is important to you, then you’ll want to find out more about these qualities and why they’re important.
Recently, we came across an article that speaks to these specific traits and more.
“Bamboo’s environmental benefits arise largely out of its ability to grow quickly – in some cases three to four feet per day – without the need for fertilizers, pesticides, or much water. Bamboo also spreads easily with little or no care. Also, a bamboo grove releases some 35 percent more oxygen into the air than a similar-sized stand of trees…helping to improve soil conditions and prevent erosion along the way.”

Why choose eco-friendly flooring?
An eco-friendly flooring such as Strand Woven Bamboo can do so much for your home. In addition to being easy to install, it also contains no urea-formaldehyde or harmful VOCs, which leaves you with much better air quality. Your whole family will breathe better once these floors are in place, offering a respite for allergy sufferers in particular.
Since bamboo grows so fast, it yields far more product than regular trees, and in less space. You’ll find that this product produces more than twenty times the amount, maturing in only seven years, as opposed to the thirty to fifty years it takes for a similar strand of trees to develop.
These floors offer incredible beauty, stability, functionality, and endurance, but they keep giving even after you have no more use for them as a floor covering. They are completely recyclable, which means they will not become part of a landfill, as they can be used in a variety of ways and other products.
In addition to the many earth-friendly qualities found in this material, you’ll still find it to be a beautiful addition to any décor scheme. With a variety of colors, textures, and formats, you’ll find it to be a perfect addition to a variety of spaces.
