Bamboo Floating Floors Doesn’t Sink, it Floats

The name might sound misleading. A floating floor might give the impression that it can sink anytime. Whereas actuality floating bamboo flooring refers to flooring that is installed in such a manner that it is not attached to the subfloor. 

This means that the flooring is interconnected through either a click-and-lock type system or a tongue and groove type system. You can get the installation of the best ‘floating floor via’ (also known as ‘plancher flottant via’ in the French Language).

Pros and Cons of 6 Different Kinds of Wood Floors

Bamboo floating floors are useful in areas where the subfloor is not conducive to gluing or nailing and yet the beauty of a hardwood floor is desired. The subfloor simply is not a mitigating factor with the exception of being level and not having a moisture issue.

If the subfloor is not level the floating bamboo floor might have a difficult time being pieced together and could warp. This can be remedied through the use of floor leveling compounds. Moisture can also be remedied if moisture tests show that moisture exists. Moisture barriers can be added over the subflooring to prevent the moisture from seeping through and ruining the bamboo flooring.

One other consideration with floating flooring systems is noise. These floors are somewhat noisier than other types of flooring. This is due to the flooring not being attached directly to the subfloor and thus there being a gap that allows for movement or 'play' in the bamboo planks as they are walked across. Some manufacturers suggest that a soft underlay material be placed over the subfloor before the bamboo floating floor is installed in order to help lessen this noise.
