Bamboo floors are not just environmentally friendly, they are also naturally hypoallergenic.

Bamboo flooring can be an asset to your home, both with their modern look and allergy friendliness.

Bamboo Flooring Tips for an Allergy–Free Home

  • Look for finishes that contain low levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs)*
  • Clean frequently to minimize the presence of allergens on the surface
  • Use an underlayment such as cork or foam rubber to help reduce moisture transfer and decrease the chance of mold growth

    *VOCs are carbon–based, chemical compounds that can be found in certain floors and floor materials. VOCs are commonly associated with allergy–like symptoms and even believed to increase cancer risk. (For more on VOCs see Allergy–Friendly Flooring – Introduction)
