Bamboo combines strength, beauty, durability and ease of maintaince. For this reason, bamboo flooring is increasing used in work out spaces— whether a home gym or a yoga parlor.
Not only can it take a pounding by dancers, but in tandem with an underlay bamboo floor can also reduce the shock of falls. Blood, sweat and tears are easy to clean due to its easy to maintain UV coating.

When we think about bamboo and where it is grown, we mostly think about Japan, China and people with excellent horticultural taste in their gardens.
Bamboo however, covers a vast amount of area in the world, including large areas of Africa, South / Central America and Southeast Asia. They call it "green gold", as processing it brings eco-friendly industries.
One of our friends was recently featured on CNN, focusing on the bamboo business in Ethiopia

When you’re looking at a bamboo forest, your’e actually looking at only the tip of the iceberg: more than half the mass of a bamboo forest is the root structure underground. inIndividual poles above the surface are actually part of a huge interconnected root structure underneath. Cutting one pole (usually less than 20%, only the mature poles) leaves the structure intact with many other culms to feed the root structure above. These grass-like characteristics make bamboo floor eco friendly.

This week, we continue comparing bamboo flooring to other flooring options, specifically laminate. Welcome to Round Three.
Round Three: Toxicity Levels
Made of cheap processed wood, held together by inexpensive adhesives, laminate flooring is not an eco-friendly product. There is no way to be sure what chemicals or other harmful products have been used in the manufacturing process. The biggest concern with laminate flooring is that you have no real idea of the source of the product, the manufacturing quality or the levels of toxic ingredients added to the laminate material.All our bamboo products adhere to stringent testing and confirm to all European Union (EU) standards, and the floor itself is composed of primarily bamboo: not chemicals. One of the beauties of hard floorings is it does not catch dust and other allergens. Keep your house pure using a good, solid eco-friendly floor.

Flooring is a significant investment in your home. You want a floor that not only looks amazing but lasts a lifetime. How often have you heard somebody get excited about laminate floors? Somewhere between never and never ever. The floor you lay in your home has the potential to add substantial value to your home or not.
During the next few weeks we’ll put bamboo and laminate flooring head to head.
Round One: Lifespan
Laminate flooring is faux wood flooring option that is appealing if you are looking only at the price, and it hasn’t been stepped on yet. Laminate flooring may save you money in the short term but it is less durable and has a much shorter life span than bamboo flooring. Laminate flooring will need to be ripped up and replaced within years, and the wear will be noticeable immediately. Meanwhile Simply Bamboo Bamboo Flooring, with the right maintenance and some easy TLC, will last a lifetime.

Baby, Bowl, Bamboo: one of these things is easier to clean than the other.
If you guessed the bamboo floor, you would be correct. Protected seven layers of UV cured coating, a quick vacuum or (for really tough spills) a simple damp mop will bring back the original lustre of your bamboo floor.
This is why bamboo floor is great for areas like kitchens, bathrooms...or wherever babies, pets and other wild animals may roam.
