In Japan, bamboo is used for industrial scaffolding so it's definitely strong enough for your family's flooring needs. It has a high weight to strength ratio and can carry countless times its own weight. Bamboo flooring is as hard as maple and is 50% more stable & harder than Red Oak. According to the USDA, bamboo flooring also tops the list of common wood species in dimensional stability.

Especially good for the high-traffic areas of your home or business, bamboo is much more scratch resistant than hardwoods flooring so it needs refinished less frequently. Eventually it will gain a nice patina and will start to warm and meld into a variety of tones and hues. After time, your flooring becomes a gallery of mottled tones that are unique and beautiful.

Make sure to ask about the manufacturing process of the morning star bamboo flooring you are purchasing. Most bamboo flooring can be produced without the use of VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) as opposed to the chemical-laden process of producing traditional hardwood flooring VOCs are chemical compounds that are carbon based and are in the form of vapor at room temperature. In this case, organic does not mean naturally occurring rather a by-products of man-made substances.
