|1. Compared with hardwood flooring,
what virtues does your bamboo flooring have?
||Compared with hardwood flooring, our bamboo
flooring has many good virtues. First, our
bamboo flooring is an environmental product
and the growing season of bamboo is much
shorter than the decades for hardwood forests
to mature. Each year, one "mother tree"
in the now-thinned-out acre makes several
new stems that grow to full length in a
few months and to mature hardness in about
five years, so our bamboo flooring has plentiful
natural resource. Secondly, our bamboo flooring
has higher hardness, so it is more durable
than hardwood flooring. Then the third,
our bamboo flooring can be installed very
conveniently. When installed, it can be
glued, nailed, or nailed with glue. Except
all the above, our bamboo flooring has better
grain and is more elegant and graceful than
|2. What kind of finish does your bamboo
flooring use and what are the virtues of the
||Our bamboo flooring is finished with seven
coats of 100% solid UV cured urethane, which
makes the flooring resistant to abrasion,
chemical and stain, fire, indentation and
oiling. Furthermore, our bamboo flooring
with this kind of particular finish has
another virtue of electrostatic prevention.
|3. What's the moisture content of
your bamboo flooring?
||Our bamboo flooring is kiln dried
and plastic sealed before packing,
and its interior moisture content
is controlled within 8%-10%.
|4. How to maintain
||1. Keep the floor clean, and use soft
damping cloth to scrub the floor gently.
2. Avoid osculating volumes of water. Mop
up the water and clean the floor in time
if that happens.
3. Place a piece of doormat at the entrance
to the room so as to prevent such things
as dust and sand from being carried in.
At the same time, the doormat must be keep
4. Never gride on the surface of bamboo
flooring with nails or enter the room in
shoes with metal pins.
5. According to the service condition, wax
or varnish the floor every several years
and try to keep the varnish film glabrous.
6. Keep the windows open often for ventilation
and also to adjust the indoor temperature.
7. Avoid being insolated long by strong
sunlight under normal conditions.
8. Keep the room as ventilated and dry as
|5. Where does
your bamboo flooring come from?
||Our bamboo flooring comes from
EverJade Flooring Products Co.Ltd.
which is one of the main bamboo
flooring manufacturers in China.
All bamboo material is selected
before being manufactured into floors,
so the quality of our products is
good and reliable.
|6. What colors
do your products have?
||Our products have two main colors.
One is natural blond color and the
other is carbonated brown color.
Carbonization is a boiling process,
so it may create another darker
|7. How hard is
your bamboo flooring?
||When tested according to the standards
of the National Wood Flooring Association
Test (Janka Ball Hardness Test), it shows
an average hardness of 1320 PSI comparing
with the northern red oak. The carbonization
process reduces the result to 1010 PSI,
the strength of walnut.
|8. Why does bamboo
flooring become more and more popular?
Bamboo flooring is made from natural
resource, which is renewable and recyclable.
Buildings, barns, ships and other structures
made of bamboo often find a second life
in bamboo flooring, wall decor panel,
vents and ceilings. And bamboo flooring
is a good choice for a healthy home.
Eight virtues of bamboo
(1)Hard-surface/particular abrasion resistant/No
traces will be left on its surface even
after several years.
(2)Burly almost no traces/keep horizontal
surface/friction and scratch resistant.
(3)Cigarette tip and fire resistant/high-density/water
and fire resistant.
(4)Color-lasting, fading proof/light shining
and ultraviolet radiation resislat/no
(5)Easily to tend and protect, Easy stain
(6)Innocuous to health /Nature bamboo
/no preservative/no irritability chemicals.
(7)Innocuous to health /Nature bamboo/no
(8)Easy assembling and paving
Comparison between bamboo and wood floor
and its parameter
The chromatism comparison between bamboo
flooring and wood flooring
Because the diameter of timber trunk is
bigger than that of bamboo, which leads
to that the influence on the bamboo by
sunlight is much larger than that on the
trees and the chromatism difference between
the positive surface and negative surface
is a bit larger, even if the quality and
hierarchicy of the material is the same,
its color is uneasy to conform, however,
bamboo floor boards are the other way
Physical property comparison between bamboo
Compared with wood, bamboo has many virtues:
high strength, large tenacity, strong
rigidity, tractability and so on, and
has better physical mechanics performances
.Its static bending strength, rigidity
,and strength of extension are more than
twice that of wood . Folding strength
and surface degree of bamboo flooring
made of bamboo are larger than that of

|9. Why choose
bamboo over wood?
||Bamboo is not a tree but a fast growing
grass. The species used for flooring is
sustainably harvested from selected groves
in southern China and is not eaten by pandas.
It takes only three to five years to grow
bamboo, therefore an acre of bamboo can
provide more flooring than an acre of trees.
Cutting bamboo shoots does not destroy the
roots and fresh new sprouts grow in their
place. Bamboo has a dense root mass which
helps prevent soil erosion and provides
a viable crop opportunity for hills where
other crops cannot grow.
Bamboo is harder than many hardwoods and
requires less sanding and refinishing, making
it an excellent choice for high traffic
residential and commercial applications.
Bamboo has a long straight fibre composition,
providing an exceptional strength to weight
ratio and dimensional stability. Bamboo
has only straight grain and is not subject
to the ripping, leaving and chipping problems
common to the short and often erratic grain
alignment of many woods. The reed-like pore
structure of bamboo limits swelling and
provides exceptional dimensional stability.
Growth nodes, a light colour and straight
grain give bamboo its exotic appearance.
Bamboo has a high mineral content making
it more durable and fire resistant than
