A: It is true that TRADITIONAL bamboo is a softer material. Even though traditional bamboo flooring is about 25% harder than Oak and Maple, it still can be easily scratched or gouged by high heels, small pets and furniture movement. Any sort of pressure may result in dents, scratches and even cracks in the floor. For these reasons there are a lot of complaints from homeowners and business owners when working with traditional bamboo flooring.
Mr. Bamboo’s BamLoc® and BamStrand® flooring is truly pet friendly. It is much harder than traditional bamboo flooring and is 100% harder than Red Oak and most other hardwoods. Therefore it will not dent or scratch easily from high heels, sharp objects, pet claws and furniture movement. It is perfect for residential and commercial projects.
