Bamboo is a perfectly green substitute to wood flooring and has captured the imagination of homeowners and architects alike. Hard woods like oak take 120 years to grow but bamboo will grow in 3 years and it even regenerates on its own. No need to replant it. With a minimal need for fertilization, bamboo grows in various parts of the tropical world, and is sourced to different countries. This makes bamboo one of the most environmentally friendly flooring options for your home.
One of the benefits of installing bamboo flooring is that you need fewer chemicals to clean the floor. Even during its growth, it needs fewer pesticides and fertilizers since it is resilient to bugs and insects. A natural anti-bacterial property occurring in bamboo also makes it an excellent raw material for garments and bed sheets. Versatility is definitely one of the greatest traits of bamboo, which makes it an apt substitute for hardwood floors as well.
