  1. Water and a Mop

If you don’t want to use any products on your bamboo floor, a mop and water will also effectively clean the surface.  As bamboo absorbs water, you will need to make sure that the mop is wrung out and ensure no excess water is left on the floor.

Products to avoid

There are a number of products that you should avoid when cleaning your bamboo floor.  It can easily become damaged if you use the wrong products.  Avoid the following:

  • Furniture polish – it can make the floor very slippery
  • Acidic or abrasive products – can damage and or/scratch the surface
  • Steam Mop – the heat and moisture can penetrate and warp the floor
  • Excessive water – can soak into the surface and damage the floor
  • Vacuum cleaning – only use if you have the correct wood flooring attachment
