Clearing Up Misconceptions About Strand Woven Bamboo Flooring

You know that one obscure movie you love? The one that you’re always trying to tell your friends to watch, but they never do because the trailer was really bad, and now they have a warped perception of the movie that prevents them from wanting to watch it? Strand Woven bamboo flooring is kind of like that. It’s an incredible thing that a lot of people have some strange notions about.
Isn’t it time we cleared up a few of these misconceptions? Why should people miss out on a great thing, just because they don’t have all of the facts? Here are the top 3 things most people get wrong about strand woven bamboo flooring.

1. There Are Only Limited Styles Available

Many people pass over bamboo flooring, because they have the mistaken impression that there aren’t many colors and styles to choose from. They think that strand woven only comes in bamboo color and that’s it.

The fact of the matter is that strand woven comes in just about any color or style you’d find among hardwood choices. Whether it’s a light, blonde color for bright, cheery spaces, or trendy gray or black for the chic modern look, strand woven has you covered!

2. It’s Not as Durable as Other Flooring Options

We’re not sure why, but people seem to think that strand woven isn’t as durable as natural hardwood, or even engineered hardwood options. This is outright crazy, because on the scale used to measure the hardness of wooden flooring, the Janka Scale, it tops out as one of the hardest “wood” flooring materials out there. It’s over twice as hard as the famously durable Red Oak!

3. It’s a Pain to Maintain

This is another pretty baffling misconception that people never seem to question. In reality, strand woven floors are as easy to clean and maintain as a traditional hardwood floor. Just Like hardwood, all you need to do to keep them looking great is to keep them safe from standing moisture, or drastic humidity changes, sweep them regularly, and occasionally give them a once-over with a microfiber mop.
