Additionally, cleaning products meant specifically for hardwood flooring can be used on a regular basis for a more thorough cleaning. Simply spray the hardwood cleaning product onto your bamboo flooring and wipe up with a soft cloth. Bona Kemi makes it super easy with their Hardwood Flooring Cleaning Kit, which includes a swivel mop, a micro-fiber cleaning pad and a bottle of their hardwood flooring cleaner. Bona Kemi also offers an Automatic Spray Mop Kit. These cleaners are specifically made to clean prefinished hardwood flooring and works like a charm on bamboo flooring as well!
- Thanks to a harvest time of as little as five years, bamboo is an environmentally sustainable, increasingly popular flooring choice.
- Natural solid bamboo is one tough customer, considered to be twice as hard as red oak, while carbonized or engineered bamboo can be as much as 30 percent weaker than natural.
- Excessive moisture from either extra watery cleanser or sopping wet mop may get trapped in cracks between planks, where it can cause expansion, cupping, or buckling.
