For a long time there has been a common misconception; that bamboo is not a viable flooring option. This is simply not true; bamboo flooring is a perfectly viable option that offers many benefits. With proper care, bamboo is a sustainable flooring option that is environmentally friendly. While most hardwood takes decades to grow before they can be used, bamboo is ready for harvest in just four to six years. Bamboo is a fast-growing and sustainable option that leaves the environment undamaged, even after harvest.
