Bamboo is more of grass than wood, but the wood it produces is just as strong as any other hardwood. These properties make it a great candidate to replace hardwood flooring. However, this is not the only reason why bamboo hardwood floors are slowly creeping into the nests and living rooms of various people looking to add a new touch to the living room. Below is a shortlist of the various benefits bamboo flooring can offer your home.
Bamboo parquet is very environmentally friendly. This is due to the growth rate of bamboo compared to hardwood trees. Bamboo grows in four to five years and only takes about a year to mature, while hardwood trees take fifty to more than a hundred years before they can be felled and processed.

In addition, bamboo flooring can be much more durable and scratch-resistant, unlike hardwood flooring, bamboo wood can absorb moisture without deforming. If something spills, all you have to do is wipe it off with a towel to clean it, unlike hardwood floors which should never spill.
Despite the fact that bamboo flooring can withstand splashes and abrasion, it should not be abused in any way. After all, it is made of wood, and scratches, splashes, and excessive moisture can still damage it. Never drag anything onto the bamboo floor to avoid scratches and spills should be cleaned up as soon as possible.
Bamboo flooring is sturdy and can withstand permanent impact, but intentional damage to the floor can damage it. Bamboo floors need to be properly cared for, with the right materials and workmanship in order to last a long time.
