- Customer Service
And why do customers love our products?
Well, bamboo flooring is a great alternative for hardwood flooring. Not only is it a more cost-effective option, but it's less harmful to the environment. In just five to seven years, both bamboo and eucalyptus are fully matured without the use of fertilizers or pesticides. And after we harvest the bamboo, the same plant grows back! We don't have to take up more space by planting more bamboo.
