The Proper Way to Clean and Maintain Bamboo Flooring

Bamboo flooring is a beautiful and durable flooring option in living rooms, dining rooms, family rooms and just about any room in the home. However, in order to extend the life of your bamboo floors and maintain its beauty, it is important to learn the proper way to clean and maintain your floors.

The good news is that all types of bamboo flooring — including strand bamboo – are very simple to clean and maintain. This is because bamboo flooring is extremely durable, especially when treated with multi-layer coatings, including a scratch-resistant layer.

This multi-layer protective process makes bamboo floors resistant to occasional water splashes and scratches.

However, when it comes to high-traffic areas such as the kitchen and living room, you will want to protect your floors. A good way to protect strand woven bamboo flooring from high-traffic wear and tear is to purchase area rugs. A stylish area rug will not only create a more intimate room arrangement, but will also bring out the beauty in the wood.
In addition to protecting your wood in high-traffic areas, you will want to clean the wood on a regular basis. Begin by sweeping the wood with a broom or using a microfiber dry mop to eliminate excess dirt and debris. Next, you will want to clean the wood with a damp mop and cleaning liquid.

The best way to clean strand woven bamboo floors is to purchase a floor cleaner made by the company from which you purchased your floors. This floor cleaner should be eco-friendly, which means it must be non-toxic, non-acidic, biodegradable and phosphate-free. Another natural way to clean your floors is to create your own mixture of white vinegar and warm water. Make sure that the mop is damp and not wet; a wet mop or any standing water will damage the wood over time.
