Bamboo Flooring has recently become a Nevada favorite. Bamboo, while often grouped with hardwood floors, is actually made from a species of grass called “Moso.”
Most Bamboo Flooring is created from stalks of bamboo that are four to five years old. These stalks are then sliced into strips and woven or laid into planks. There’s a lot to learn and consider when choosing the right bamboo flooring but the professionals at Full Circle Flooring are here to help.
Why Bamboo Flooring?
It’s beautiful. The grain of bamboo, whether natural or amber-toned, makes it a distinctive, elegant, and subtle material for flooring. Bamboo can withstand a great deal of use without damage. It’s stronger even than oak, considered the most durable hardwood. It’s a grass, and it grows like one. Many species of bamboo can grow two feet or more a day. When it’s harvested, it need not be replanted, because it will grow a new shoot from its extensive root system. So bamboo renews itself readily.
It enhances the environment.
Farmed bamboo stabilizes the earth with its roots, preventing erosion. It takes in greenhouse gasses and produces oxygen. In fact 35% more oxygen than an equivalent stands of trees. It’s healthy. It’s efficient.
Cork flooring is a beautiful natural product. Most of the benefits of cork are derived from its specialized cellular structure. Cork has a honeycomb cellular structure and each cubic centimeter contains roughly 40 million hexagonal cells. The cork tissue is nearly 85% comprised of an air-like gas that makes the material very lightweight and low density. Nearly any design that can be done in ceramic tiles can now be done in cork.
Why Cork Flooring?
Cork flooring is made from the Bark that is harvested from the tree and is able to regenerate after the harvest. The bark can be re-harvested every 9-10 years without damaging the tree. Cork is a wonderful insulator. It is resistant to temperatures, so go ahead, take off your shoes and walk barefoot. Just as the wine stoppers made from cork are light, your cork flooring will have this same amazing property. Cork is extremely durable. It will not collect dust, and in its natural state, it is fire resistant. The easy maintenance is another benefit of cork flooring. It will not collect dust, and is therefore, hypo-allergenic. It is an insect repellant, and anti-microbial, making it a great choice for your kitchen, bathrooms, and children’s play areas.
