Bamboo Flooring vs Carpet


Carpet historically was the first choice in flooring, being soft and warm to walk on, coming in a range of colours and patterns and at prices to suit the cost-conscious and those in the luxury market. With carpet, the main choice comes down to wear versus cost, with fading and loss of raised pattern due to traffic being other factors, though carpet is relatively easy to replace. One of the detrimental features of carpets in recent years has been the increase in awareness of dust mites in carpets, which can be uncomfortable for asthma sufferers, and the health impact of chemicals used in the carpet manufacturing process. In addition, house pets and their accidents often prove incompatible!! Of course, carpets need to be steam cleaned regularly to maintain a healthy floor. Spills and stains, even with the special treatments, are still the bane of the carpet owner.

Bamboo Flooring

Bamboozle have had many years of supplying and installing quality bamboo floors to the new home and renovation market, either conventional bamboo grain or "Bamwood" – a bamboo flooring that's over 70% harder than Jarrah, and gives the look and feel of conventional timber flooring. Bamboo flooring today is mostly supplied pre-finished and stuck direct onto concrete. Furniture can be moved back after only several hours, reducing disruption for renovators. Bamboo flooring has all the attributes of quality timber flooring – a warm look and feel to suit the most discerning of owners, and a look that can be improved after many years of service if necessary by sanding & polishing to give a traditional finish. As far as health and cleanliness is concerned, bamboo flooring scores high marks. Pets are disinclined to mess a floor, but it can be easily cleaned, however pets can find bamboo floors a bit slippy when rushing about! Bamwood flooring is scratch resistant and easy to clean, many owners opting to use a steam mop occasionally; and the fixing process means that an accidental spillage of red wine is readily cleaned up leaving no evidence!
