It would seem on the surface that using bamboo flooring in your home or business makes good environmentally-friendly sense. It is true that this is a natural material that requires far less production and therefore, fewer toxic chemicals. However, as you look at bamboo flooring pros and cons there are some possible drawbacks. First and foremost, is bamboo flooring's potential to chip, crack, and get scuffed. This is the same for its more traditional wood counterparts, however, this is not as well known as an issue for bamboo floors, and often comes as a very unwelcome surprise to those that choose solely for its green properties.
Created wooden floors react fairly in different ways than solid plank floors do. They're generally easier to set-up and tend to be usually a lot less expensive than solid hard wood.
3. Rent a floor sander from an equipment rental shop. Traditional drum sanders do a good job but are quite heavy and would take some getting used to. Or consider a orbital sanders designed for floor refinishing that is easier to control. Whichever you choose, ask for a demonstration of how the sander works before you leave the rental shop. Get a good supply of sandpaper that will fit your rental machine.
Regarding durability, BF is better than LF. LF cant be repaired if the top layer, abrasion resistance, is broken as there is no layer to protect the decorative layer and support material. BF still can be used if its surface is broken because there is still bamboo under the surface.
