What is the bamboo furniture
 
 Bamboo furniture is an emerging low carbon industry, bamboo because of its no planting, growing fast, material of high hardness, strong toughness., it’s an ideal material to replace solid wood furniture, especially for forest protection. Bamboo industry is a refection of good ecology, economy and social benefits. China's bamboo industry association advocates that bamboo industry in China should take the path of circular economy and green industry with the goal of Green Industry and Low Carbon Economy.        
 
 As a lot of people have seen bamboo furniture, in addition to bamboo chair, bamboo bed-mat, there also have bamboo flooring, bamboo tea table, rattan sofa, dining room furniture, etc. Because the previous craftsmanship was very poor, bamboo were rarely used as anything other than used to make fire, with the emergence of high-tech in recent years, bamboo turnaround, have been used more and more widely, including clothing,home furnishing, food and construction,etc.
 
 
Bamboo Furniture or Wood Furniture?
 
1.Material comparison: Bamboo’ use adhesive composition to joint together, with high temperature and high pressure, non-toxic,  stable and firm, no opening glue, no deformation, after taking off sugar, fat, starch, protein and other special harmless process, bamboo have super mothproof function, can effectively antiflaming, wear-resisting, anti-mildew, bamboo is an advanced decorative material for residence, hotel and office building,etc. But the wood lumber is a material of natural lumber drying and formed after processing, presents natural wood texture and color patterning, give people a feeling of natural, soft and full of affinity.
 
2.Environmental comparison: Bamboo’s growth cycle is very short (can be cut down to use after only 4 to 6 years), can be planted easily, is a renewable green resource. The wood lumber’s growth cycle is very long (more than 20 years or even over 50 years), it’s a kind of non-renewable resource, excessive deforestation will cause serious damage to the earth's environment. In addition, deep processed bamboo products are natural material products, will not cause pollution to indoor environment. All in all, bamboo furniture is much more environmentally friendly than wood furniture.
 
3.Comparison of anti-insects: Bamboo have eliminated parasitic eggs with high temperature boiling and carbonize in the processing; and also have taken off sugar, fat, starch, protein and other nutrients, to make the parasitic eggs no growing environment, so it has superstrong ability of insect-resistant. Wood may grow worms, because wood lumber can not have the processing such as taking off sugar and removing fat, it can only  be processed by materials such as antiseptic, but it can't solve the fundamental problems like bamboo.
 
4. Comparison of process: After processing such as cutting, bonding and scientific of permutation and combination, bamboo material can be a very good balance within the outside forces, is not easy to get out of shape and craze. But the wooden furniture is to get out of shape, but not easy to craze.
 
Maintenance tips:
 
1. Dry and ventilatie is the most important: Because of the specificity of bamboo furniture,so it must be put on dry place ,if put it in humid and dark place,it will cause microbial breeding because the humidity, it will easy to cause mould and moth. Some big bamboo ware such as cabinet、bookshelf、deck chair, should remove the foul in the aperture in normal times, then wash them by water and dry out. Especially for those bamboo wares not be used temporarily, much more need to be washed and dried out, then keep them in dry and drafty places.
 
2. Done sufficient preparation: If conditions allow, you can coat the bamboo furniture with varnish, tung oil whtn you just buy them back. It can not only anti the insects, but also can be durable use and make it beautiful, it’s very beneficial and can serve multiple purposes. Some newly brought small and medium size bamboo products such as baskets, mat, it is best to fumigate them under high temperature and sealed conditions. It can thoroughly kill insects and  microorganism which hided in the bamboo wares only after 2-3 hours’ fumigation. It also can use boiled water with a certain amount of salt, and soak the bamboo wares with 1-2 days, it’s also a good mothproof way. If moths appear, you can kill them by the following ways: Firstly, use appropriate sharp pepper or Chinese prickly, then mash them into powders, stuff them into the worm hole, then flush it with boiled water, it can kill the moths and prevent them to spread. Secondly, mix coal oil and traces of DDVP well, then instill the worm hole, it also can kill the moths. But this way is not suitable for some bamboo wares which are used to store food, such as basket, cabinet, in case of accident.
