Jodi Marks: If you are in the market for a prefinished flooring, you can see there are a lot of options. You can choose oak, you can choose maple, walnut—the list goes on and on. But I have to admit that probably one of my favorites is bamboo, only because it is so environmentally friendly and it’s a renewable resource.
Shea Pettaway: Yeah. You got the GreenGuard bamboo floor, which means it’s a certification to make it indoor air friendly.
Jodi Marks: Let’s talk about that a little more because it goes through some rigorous testing before it can get that certification. I mean, they test it for up to, like, 10,000 chemicals, don’t they?
Shea Pettaway: Yeah, including formaldehyde.
Jodi Marks: Yeah, that’s really important. So that’s going to improve the air quality in your home because it’s not going to be off-gassing these toxic chemicals, right?
Shea Pettaway: That’s correct.
Jodi Marks: Now, I like another thing about this is because it’s a solid wood floor. It’s got a tongue-and-groove connection. So take a look at that. I mean, look how thick that plank is.
Shea Pettaway: And let me tell you, it has seven aluminum oxide layers on there, which means that it’s going to be very durable as well.
Jodi Marks: Very durable. So you can nail this down. You can glue it down. You can put it on or above grade. So this is a great option if you’re definitely in the market.
