Bamboo Flooring Is The Hip Environmentally Friendly Choice For Your Home
If you ever wondered why bamboo is a renewable resource, it is because this material grows so quickly that it needs to be harvested every three to four years. After harvesting, the manufacturer takes each pole, slices them vertically and laminates the strips together to create the strand or solid patterns. Manufacturers and traders promote this product for its longevity, strength and resistance to insects and its similarity to wood.
Eco friendliness provides an additional benefit. Bamboo is not wood, but a grass. It subsequently grows much quicker, making it a highly renewable resource. Moso, the species primarily used for flooring and grows at a rate of 47" in 24 hours - that is approximately 78 1/2' in 40 - 50 days. It only takes 3 to 5 years to mature fully (the optimal harvest time), whereas trees take much longer. The natural environment of this product requires no fertilizers or irrigation and pesticides are not necessary.

Unlike ordinary floor materials, however, this product is relatively inexpensive and easy to install, while maintaining the attractive look of a real wood floor. The materials used are also much more resilient and durable than that of a carpet floor. In most cases, four layers of flooring are installed: a transparent protective layer, an applique design layer, an inner core layer made of fiber and resin materials, and a glue backing layer.
For many crafty homeowners, laminate flooring installations are a fairly easy project. The floors are packaged together in a set of groove and tongue planks, which can then be pushed together. In most cases, this product is installed so that they sit on top of an underlayment made of foam or film over the sub-floor. This design allows for beneficial sound-reducing and moisture qualities. In order to allow for the expansion of the flooring, a tiny gap is needed between the floors and permanent objects such as walls and staircases. For most installations, it is necessary to remove the baseboards before the floors are laid and reinstall them after, though it is possible to use beading trims instead. During the installation, saw cuts will also need to be made at the edges of the planks as well as around door frames and closet entrances.
