When considering bamboo flooring, it is important to know that not all bamboo is equal. Nor is all bamboo processing equal. Some discount or wholesale companies are already selling immaturely cut bamboo for bamboo flooring.
The result is low-quality, cheap bamboo flooring cost
that won't last. Timing is also important in processing bamboo. If it is not treated within three days after it has been cut, the bamboo can easily mold, making the resulting flooring look bland and dull. Be sure to confirm that the wholesaler you deal with is knowledgeable and can assure that their bamboo and processing methods are of high quality.
Bamboo flooring is somewhat different than typical wood flooring. It is sometimes classified as exotic wood flooring, but it is becoming more and more popular, and more and more commonplace. Technically, bamboo is manufactured flooring.
It is almost, but not quite the same as engineered flooring. A bamboo tree is not harvested, and then cut up into bamboo planks. You cannot get a long, flat plank from a bamboo tree. Instead, the bamboo is pulled off in strips, which are either solidly glued together, fused together under high pressure, or some combination of both, after which it is formed into planks.
