Like cork, bamboo flooring is environmentally sound. It also has an extremely hard surface, so it can withstand heavy foot traffic and even some drops. What is most noteworthy, however, is the unique appearance. Bamboo flooring has a pattern of dark bands that truly set it apart from other wood floors.
Cork flooring is certainly the most environmentally-friendly wood floor option because it is made only from the bark of the cork oak tree. The rest of the tree remains unharmed and therefore continues to grow. Relative to other wood floors, cork is extremely soft underfoot, flexible, and warm to the touch. The soft surface and unique construction means that cork absorbs sound. Cork also handles moisture really well, and it even is considered waterproof.
Both bamboo and cork floors are some of the most environmentally-friendly options available today. One of the reasons is because of the amount of time it takes to harvest the materials needed to make the flooring. Traditional hardwood takes between fifty and one hundred years to grow before it is harvested. On the other hand, bamboo is harvested between three and six years of age, while cork takes between eight and fourteen years to fully mature.
Bamboo is unique because it will grow back after it is harvested. The roots stay in place and allow the plant to grow back! Once a cork tree is fully matured, it will also continue to produce cork for flooring for as many as one hundred and fifty years, and sometimes more in some cases.
