Although bamboo is a durable and robust flooring option, it does have limitations when it comes to cleaning. For example, vacuums are a no-go for cleaning these floors. Vacuums are usually too heavy and bulky and may cause scratches and dents as you pull them across the floor. While you may have a special fitting that makes them compatible with wood floors, you should pass on vacuums.
You should also avoid using too much water if you plan on mopping up your floor. A damp mop with a pH-neutral cleaning is a great way to break apart many stains and get your floor clean. However, excessive water may soak into the wood surface and cause swelling and damage. This problem is familiar with all wooden floors and shouldn’t be considered unique to bamboo, though.
Just as importantly, you should also avoid tools like steam mops, as they will warp and distort any wooden floors. You should also avoid furniture polish or wax on any wood floors. If you avoid these standard cleaning techniques, you can keep your bamboo flooring as secure as possible for years to come. And you can make sure that they look great at the same time, which may save you money as well.
