Bamboo floors in Malaga
Some call them Bamboo flooring, others bamboo parquet, but in the end the product is the same.
As a flooring material, bamboo has many of the benefits and drawbacks that hardwood flooring have. Like these, bamboo is an attractive natural material that generally increases the real estate value and appearance of a home. But just like wood, bamboo can be scratched, and it can even crack if subjected to very drastic wet conditions.
What is a bamboo flooring?
Although the bamboo plant is a type of grass, not a tree, bamboo flooring behaves much like wooden flooring, and can even be refinished in the same way. Bamboo is as hard as most hardwoods and is slightly more resistant to water.
Bamboo will be most attractive to consumers interested in using natural and renewable resources. Unlike trees, which take at least 20 years to mature, a bamboo stalk can be repeatedly harvested every five to six years. Most commercial bamboos come from plantations that are grown responsibly.
Price of bamboo flooring
The price is very similar to most wooden floors. We encourage you to request a quote for the model or models of bamboo flooring that you like the most, so we can give you the price per square meter.
Maintenance and repair of bamboo floors
Bamboo flooring is relatively easy to maintain. You just have to sweep or vacuum it regularly to remove the remains of small particles that could scratch it.
You can also scrub it occasionally. Compared to solid wood, bamboo is slightly more resistant to water damage. And bamboo is slightly harder than many hardwoods, giving it greater resistance to scratches and dents. But it is not a waterproof or scratch-proof material.
Bamboo can discolour if it receives too much direct sunlight, so it is best to use blinds or curtains in rooms that receive direct sunlight.
