That is just like the choice between bamboo and hardwood flooring. While you love the look of hardwood, you just can’t get past those environmental concerns. Bamboo flooring, especially EcoFusion bamboo, is a great alternative.
Here are other reasons to choose bamboo flooring:
● Eco-friendliness. Bamboo flooring is made from a natural plant that matures and is ready to harvest in five years or less, as opposed to trees which can take up to 20. EcoFusion also uses low-emitting materials, so there are no harmful VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) and the products qualify for credit under the LEEDS (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) green-building rating system.
As more people become environmentally aware, they are demanding natural designs and products. They also want unique, individual style; there’s no more “one size fits all.” Other reasons to choose bamboo flooring:
● Durability. There are two types: Vertical and Strand Woven bamboo, both manufactured by EcoFusion. Although all bamboo is tough, Strand Woven is three times stronger than many traditional hardwoods, making it stand up easily to kids, pets and heavy foot traffic. It’s more water resistant than hardwood, making it less prone to warping, but it’s still a natural material so excess water should be avoided.
● Easy to Clean: Mop, sweep, damp mop or clean it with an alkaline soap made especially for bamboo flooring. Avoid waxy, shine-promoting cleaners.
● Price: Bamboo Flooring is slightly less expensive than hardwood. Please keep in mind that while it is possible to find cheaper bamboo, it will most certainly always lead to an inferior product.
