Advantages of Bamboo Flooring
Although bamboo is the most appealing to consumers interested in using natural, renewable building materials, it boasts plenty of benefits that make it an attractive choice to anyone looking at flooring options.
Easy Maintenance: Bamboo floors are relatively easy to maintain. Sweeping and vacuuming regularly to remove dust and debris should suffice. An occasional cleanse with a bamboo floor cleaner or a mild soap and water solution can help it look cleaner.
Refinishing Potential: Over time, bamboo can get scratched and discolored. Fortunately, the surface is easy to refinish by sanding it down and applying a new coating seal. Refinishing the top layer can bring a new, even look to the floor again, protecting it from future damage. Keep in mind that engineered bamboo flooring cannot be refinished.

hard plastic attachments. Best to use felt or fine brush attachments. Make sure plastic

On a monthly basis or as needed:
1. Soft bristle broom / vacuum as directed above.
2. Take an empty spray bottle fill it with 3/4 water and 1/4 white vinegar. Spray that
mixture onto a microfibre mop to dampen it, rather don't spray directly onto the floor
itself and clean with a few strokes, in the length of the floor.
Do not wax
Use protective mats at doorways, as gritty sand and dirt are abrasive to bamboo floors.
Install furniture pads on all furniture legs, especially if it has the potential of moving on
the bamboo. Make sure you use the correct size and pad thickness for the weight of the
