Bamboo flooring Maintenance
Each type of floors requires maintenance. Here are few tips of how your bamboo floors can still look great after so many years .
1. Clean floor after installation. Use a lightly dampened mop with no-wax floor cleaner specifically formulated for hardwood floors (preferably non-toxic, environmentally safe products).And we carry those type of cleaning products such as Bona and many others.
2. Regularly dust mop, sweep with a soft bristle broom or vacuum with a soft accessory to keep your bamboo floor clean from dust, dirt or grit. In our store you will be able to get a cleaning mop as well.
3 Remove spills and dirt promptly. A soft cloth wetted with water and then squeezed dry may be used to wipe up foodstuffs and other spills, provided the area is dried immediately.
4 When using any wood flooring cleaner that requires mixing with water, follow the mixing directions precisely.
5 Heel or scuff marks and stubborn stains may be removed by lightly rubbing with a cloth and a wood floor cleaner.
6 Place mats at all exterior entrances. This will capture much of the harmful dirt before it reaches the bamboo floor.
7 It is recommended to remove shoes (especially high-heel shoes) prior to walking on bamboo flooring. Alternatively, be sure to clean shoes well. Gravel, rocks and debris can get stuck in the bottom of shoes and scratch the finish.
8 Use area rugs on high traffic pathways. Only use colorfast and non-scratch area rugs on your bamboo floor.
9 Use mats in the kitchen, bathroom and laundry room to protect against spills.
10 Shake out, vacuum or wash mats and area rugs frequently.
11 Install floor protectors under all furniture legs. Make sure the floor protectors are large enough to distribute weight evenly. Keep the floor protectors clean of grit and replace them periodically. Wheels should have hardened-plastic casters at least 2" in width depending on weight.
