How to Clean Bamboo Floors

Although bamboo flooring can be very durable, they still need special care in order to maintain a clean and ding-free surface. Like hardwood floors, bamboo can be damaged by stiletto heels, abrasive cleaning products and pet nails. In addition to sweeping and mopping your floors on a regular basis, you should also take preventative measures to help minimize dents and scratches. Laying down rugs in high-traffic areas and putting mats by all entrance ways can help prolong the life of your bamboo floors.

Exposure to spills and moisture can cause bamboo floors to cup, discolor and swell. Make sure that you wipe up spills immediately after they occur. After 4 years of contact with drinks and food mishaps, the bamboo floors in my aunt's dining room were far beyond repair. You should even take care when mopping bamboo flooring. Dampen the mop with water and a cleaning product recommended by the manufacturer.

Other things you can do to prevent damage are keeping pets' nails trimmed, taking heels off before walking across the floor and keeping bamboo floors out of direct sunlight. Also, when using floor cleaning products, make sure you always follow the directions as specified on the package. Finally, avoid using ammonia, abrasive cleanser, strong detergents and corrosive chemicals on bamboo as these can discolor and damage bamboo planks. Before you install bamboo floors in certain household areas, you may want to ask yourself what the environment will be like. Asking yourself these important questions can help you find the bamboo floor that's just right for you. 

Follow these and the other tips outlined in FindAnyFloor.com's Bamboo Care section and you should be well on your way to properly maintained bamboo floors.

can you clean bamboo floors with white vinegar and water?

FAF Bamboo Pro posted on: February 23, 2009

Thank you Donna for your question regarding the cleaning of your bamboo floor. The short answer is yes, you can use vinegar and water to clean your bamboo floors. One word of caution is to make sure you do this with a damp mop, and not a soaking wet mop. Do not apply the water and vinegar mixture directly to the floor, but instead apply it to the mop first. If you have any further questions about the cleaning and care of bamboo flooring feel free to use the Live Chat feature to speak to one of our Bamboo flooring professionals.
