Bamboo flooring is highly popular due to its beauty and environmentally-friendly production process. Regular maintenance and cleaning can prevent these floors from losing their beauty and quality. Here are a few of our bamboo maintenance and care tips that will keep the flooring looking great and prevent unnecessary damage.

Bamboo floors cannot handle excessive amounts of moisture. We suggest the use of a microfiber or dust mop for daily cleaning of the floors. Vacuums designed for use on wood floors or have soft brush attachments are also good for cleaning the floors. If floor cleaners are used, use a one that is recommended for us on this type of flooring. Do not use oil soap or wood polishes on the floor. The use of the substances causes the floor to become sticky, attracting dirt to the bamboo.

Protect the floor to reduce the chances of scratching and denting. Dragging furniture across the floor can damage the wood. If the furniture needs to be moved, lift it off the floor. Add pads to the bottom of furniture legs to reduce scratching. Clean the bottoms of the pads regularly and replace when necessary.

Pay extra attention to the flooring that is located in high-traffic areas. While bamboo is a durable material, it can sustain some damage. Using rugs will help to prolong the appearance of the floor. The rug should be cleaned regularly to prevent and dirt from wondering onto the floor.

Shoes and pets can also have an adverse effect on wood floors by leaving scuff marks and scratches. We suggest removing shoes and keeping pet

    thanks for this. I have done a room before with a light crlouoed canadian hardwood, the flooring ran with a 45 degree angle. There were three courses of flooring travelling around the edge forming a border and seperated by a hardwood strip of mahogony. We put the border´╗┐ in first then lay the flooring. I have been asked to do the adjacent room and was thinking of laying the floor first.followed by the border. What would be your approach?
