Trying to prevent scratches on your bamboo floor should be one of your main priorities. Bamboo flooring is extremely resilient and hard wearing but can still scratch and dent if you do not look after it properly. Having a bamboo floor installed can transform any room, but you will want to keep it looking fresh and new for as long as possible. Small scuffs and dents are inevitable and can often add some character to the floor.
However, there are many ways to prevent larger scratches on your bamboo floor.
Follow a cleaning routine
Cleaning your bamboo floor is an essential part of looking after it. By sweeping on a regular basis you can eliminate the build up of dust and dirt on the surface of the floor. This, in turn, reduces the chance of your floor becoming scratched. Always use a soft bristle brush when sweeping and only use a vacuum cleaner if it has a specific attachment for wooden floors. You should also clean your floor regularly. We recommend on a weekly basis, using a cleaning product that has been specially designed for use on bamboo or wooden floors.
Use felt protector pads
Felt protector pads are a fool proof way of preventing your furniture from causing scratches to your bamboo floor. They act as a cushion between the furniture and your floor. You can apply them to any kind of furniture or heavy object. They are great for using on things that are regularly moved, such as dining room chairs and large toys.
