Just like hardwood, it can be installed in any room of your home, but there are some places that are less suggested to install, such as bathrooms, laundry rooms, and any other damp places. If the flooring is exposed to excessive moisture, it can further damage your bamboo flooring.

Q: How do I maintain my bamboo flooring?

A: Here are some tips for your bamboo flooring cleaning routine:

  • Sweep regularly to get rid of any dirt, dust, or any other particles. 
  • Use rugs or mats in the bathroom, kitchen, and other rooms that are exposed to more water. These will protect against spills and excess water. Try and wipe up a spill immediately to prevent any affect on your flooring. 
  • For sticky spills, try a soft damp towel to scrub the floor. Don’t use a harsh surface scrubber or any other tough material. 
  • Do not use harsh cleansers or chemicals to clean your bamboo floor.
