Is Bamboo Flooring Durable?

Bamboo Flooring looks beautiful, and it’s Eco-friendly, but is it durable? Face of Wood gives you the answer!

Bamboo flooring is considered to be highly stable. It is a good choice for high traffic homes and for homes that have pets, as it stands up well against claws.

Bamboo flooring’s durability varies since it is the treatment of the bamboo by adhesives and its processing that give it its hardness and rarely any inherent quality of the grass itself. In fact, one treatment, called carbonizing, adds color to the bamboo but further weakens it. This increases the need for additional strengthening methods.

Lower quality bamboo may range around 900-1300 on the Janka scale for flooring hardwood. More typical Janka Hardness Scale numbers for bamboo flooring are around 1500, placing bamboo between soft Douglas Fir (660) and the extremely hard and expensive Brazilian Walnut (3800).
