How to maintain bamboo flooring?

Postby Guest » Thu Nov 19, 2009 4:23 am

1. Don’t walk on the bamboo flooring within 24 hours after installation. Don’t put heavy matter on the floor within 72 hours after installation. The planks begin to touch moisture in the air after installation. And the planks will expand a bit in a short time. Some time is needed before the floor planks can work well with each other.

2. Use clean broom to get rid of the sundries and dust. Then clean the floor with cleanser or damp mop(half-dry). Don’t use water to clean the floor.

3. Regarding the dirt on the floor, scratch it with a obtuse knife Then use damp mop(half-dry) to clean the dirt. Wax the surface of bamboo flooring periodically.

4. Handle with care while moving furniture on bamboo flooring. Unlike China laminate flooring, it is not strong abrasion resistant. Don’t put heavy furniture on the floor directly. Put soft pad between the legs of the heavy furniture and floor to protect it. Avoid the leg of metal furniture from touching the floor surface directly. Avoid metal or sharp things from damaging the surface. Lacquer the finish if the paint on the surface is damaged.

5. Close window and door before leaving to avoid rain from falling on the planks because the rain will make the floor planks expand and warp after the planks absorb too much water. Wipe any liquid away immediately if it falls on the floor.

6. Keep the room ventilated to make the indoor damp air and the little formaldehyde from bamboo flooring goes out when it is damp. Keep the air a bit damp when it is too dry.

7. Avoid sunshine from irradiating the bamboo flooring directly as direct sunshine irradiation does harm to the lacquer’s life time.
