HOW TO: Maintain Bamboo Flooring

It seems that more and more people have been making the switch from carpet to hard flooring. These homeowners are finding that tile and other hard types of flooring offer more benefits; easy cleaning, low maintenance, versatility—they simply seem to be the better choice for many rooms. One of the most popular choices is bamboo flooring. This fabulous material has some great advantages, including being eco-friendly, affordable, easy to install, durable, and highly attractive. But in order to get the most of your bamboo flooring, you’ll have to make sure to keep it looking great.

Following these simple tips should help you maintain your bamboo flooring:

  • Clean up spills as soon as possible. You can avoid stains by making sure messes don’t have time to set in. Use lightly dampened soft cloths to clean up the spill, then dry it immediately.
  • Buy floor protectors to place underneath legs of your furniture. Scratches from furniture legs can cause serious damage to the floor, which is why it’s important to keep it protected.
  • Keep the floors protected from the sun. The rays of the sun can cause your bamboo flooring to fade over time. Use heavier or darker drapes to block out light and rearrange your furniture to keep key areas covered.
  • Sweep your floors with a soft-bristled broom daily. It’s important to clean up and get rid of dirt and debris so that they do not start building up. Using a soft-bristled broom will protect your floor from scratches that harsher brooms and vacuums could cause.

You can also place area rugs around the house to help keep your bamboo floors looking their best. The team here at Bay Carpet knows just how important your home’s flooring is to you, which is why we only offer the best in bamboo flooring. Our tile and carpet store contains a variety of colors and patterns, so you’re sure to find the style that’s right for you.
