Eco-Friendly Flooring

Eco-Friendly Flooring

: Make sure the Bamboo flooring you are looking at is quality-controlled when harvested and that the Bamboo has matured to at least a minimum of five years. Otherwise it will be too soft and dent easily. You can get cheap Bamboo flooring but you will get what you pay for. It won’t hold up and is often harvested by companies that are not green , but are what is called ‘green washed’ (Companies that try to look green but are not, when you delve deeper.) The wood should come from a company that is Forest Stewardship Counsel Certified (FSC ). Or from a reliable source. You can research the company to see what their process is when making the flooring.
