Caring for bamboo floors

You will love your new bamboo floors and they will last a very long time, especially if you know how to care for your bamboo floors. By caring for your bamboo floors properly, it will be able to  maintain its beauty with age.

Keeping your bamboo floors clean and maintained is not too different from taking care of other types of flooring, although there are a couple of differences, see below:

Shoes and mats

To avoid dirt and dust from getting inside your house, no shoes should be allowed inside. Wear slippers or bare feet inside your home instead. Don’t forget to use mats at doorways as this will remind people to wipe their feet off before entering or take their shoes off before stepping into the floor surface. Definitely no high heels as the pressure will mark your floors.

Protection in high traffic areas

Bamboo flooring is durable and can withstand the daily wear and tear. Yes, but this doesn’t make them indestructible. To prevent early signs of wear and tear, use rugs in high traffic areas.  Rugs will help protect the floor surface.

Keep the floor surface dirt and moisture free

You can only minimize the accumulation of dirt and dust as you cannot prevent it from entering your home totally. Your best weapon is to frequently get rid of this dirt by regular sweeping. When mopping your bamboo floors, be sure to check that the mop is not too wet. Remember, bamboo floors cannot handle large amounts of moisture. Dry mop immediately after mopping to remove all excess water from the surface of your floors.

Follow these steps and you can keep your bamboo floors beautiful for years to come.
