Bamboo flooring professional installers or layers in Melbourne

In Melbourne Bamboo flooring is a very popular flooring choice for modern homes and businesses alike. Bamboo flooring is giving the same stylish appearance as timber, it is an affordable and very environmentally sustainable alternative. A bamboo tree will only require between four to six years to grow. When it reaches maturity the bamboo forest will generally be pruned rather than completely cleared. Therefore, bamboo can continue to be farmed without losing mass areas of forest or doing irreversible damage to the environment.

Bamboo flooring has a distinct look which is much different to that found in hardwoods. Many people prefer this more unusual appearance in their home and enjoy the idea that their flooring is sourced from exotic forests. As bamboo is available in its natural or carbonised colours, together with stained shades, there’s also a lot of flexibility when it comes to choosing the flooring, with a shade to suit any interior style.

While the finish of bamboo flooring adds protection and durability, it also provides a surface that’s easy to maintain. The flooring can be cleaned just like a hardwood with regular sweeping or vacuuming and the occasional damp mop using a suitable cleaning solution

All types of bamboo flooring offer excellent hardness which can provide a sturdy floor for more than a lifetime. In fact, the plant has an intrinsically strong molecular structure with a tensile strength that’s actually stronger than steel.

Bamboo flooring can add edgy style to almost any room in the home including living rooms, hallways, kitchens, bedrooms and studies. The only room in which we don’t recommend laying bamboo is the bathroom. This is because, just like hardwood, bamboo is susceptible to expansion and shrinking with sudden changes in humidity. The regular fluctuations in temperature and moisture that are typical of the bathroom are a threat to destabilising the flooring and could result in cupping or gapping between planks
