12-9: Bamboo – an Environmentally Friendly Alternative to Hardwood Flooring

iStock_000006163063XSmallI installed Bamboo flooring in my property in Orange this week. It is an alternative to traditional hardwood flooring. It came pre-finished and installed using the same techniques and equipment as traditional hardwood floors. Bamboo floors are not technically made of wood. Though they are harder than most hardwoods, they are actually a form of grass. The hollow shoots are cut down, sliced into strips, and then laminated together to look like traditional wooden plants. This product came from China. One unique benefit of bamboo flooring is that it is exceptionally environmentally friendly. Bamboo reaches full maturity in just a few years. Also, its initial production has almost no impact on the environment because pesticides and fertilizer are not required to grow it.
