7 Benefits Of Bamboo Flooring

A bamboo floor is a natural surface with most of a concrete wood floor’s properties, similar in hardness to pau d’arco in some types and others similar to oak, depending on the style. It shares many of the benefits of a wood floor, as well as its weaknesses. The more this material is known, the better informed the person who wants to install it is, the better he will take care of and maintain his investment.


Ecologically friendly:

Bamboo products are made from natural vegetation. It is a highly renewable source capable of reaching maturity in as little as 3 to 7 years. Bamboo grows much faster than hardwood trees that can take up to twenty years or more to reach maturity.

Positive Social Impact:

It also grows in natural, non-forested areas, and its extraction is done manually, selecting mature plants, which grow back from the same stem; work is done in general by small communities that then work the material, giving labor and roots to populations that have been doing this work for decades.

Natural Material:

Natural materials are an important trend in the construction world (and in general, considering that we are all more informed of the adverse effects of climate change). As people become more informed and aware, they demand products that reflect their values by looking for materials accordingly.


There are certain types of bamboo (which are used for flooring and other building elements) that are extremely strong, hardwearing, and durable. Natural, non-carbonized bamboo (the Ecoforest line of our types) that has been properly harvested and manufactured has the hardness of oak. Strand weaved (t is as hard as what we know locally as pau d’arco and other hardwoods.

The installing bamboo flooring durability is directly associated with a responsible form of consumption, as it is a material for many years of use.


As time goes by, bamboo flooring can discolor like any wood due to the sun’s effects, scratching, marking. Fortunately, this material can be polished, which allows the thickness from the surface to the tongue and groove, which in this type of floors determines that at least they can be polished up to three times, this being a floor for 30 or 40 years at least, depending on care and use.

Water resistance:

This material is more resistant to damage that can cause an accident with water and stains from other materials than wood floors, as they are less porous. Water is always a problem with wood floors anyway.


Bamboo floors are relatively easy to maintain. A soft broom, a mop (see Bona products on our website), vacuuming regularly will suffice. Occasionally, as with any floor, a damp mop with water and some neutral detergent or with specialized products will be enough to keep your floor in optimal condition. As with any wooden floor, it is essential to avoid puncturing elements on the surface, such as tapered chair legs, dragging furniture or heavy objects, not removing sand or stones on the floor. It is always recommended to put a doormat under chairs and table and furniture legs and place a doormat at the house entrance.
