Tongue & Groove Bamboo Flooring
Tongue and Groove (T&G) flooring is the traditional way of installing any type of bamboo or wooden floor. Each plank of bamboo flooring has one long side and one short side with a tongue (a protruding edge) and one long side and one short side with a groove (a rebated edge). The planks of bamboo have been carefully machined and sanded to ensure that they create a tight and smooth fit.
Why Tongue and Groove?
The Tongue and Groove profile of bamboo flooring offers a tight and secure fit. It is by far, the most recognised and established method of fitting wooden and bamboo floors. You will find both solid and engineered bamboo floors with tongue and groove profiles. Tongue and groove bamboo flooring is durable, stable and can be installed in a number of ways, either floated over an underlay or fixed into position, depending upon your requirements.

Tongue and groove bamboo flooring is often recommended if you are installing bamboo flooring in a commercial property, as it creates a tight and seamless fit and can be glued directly to the subfloor.
How do I install T&G flooring?
You have the choice of either floating your tongue and groove flooring over an underlay or fixing it into position. The easiest method is to loose lay the planks of bamboo over an underlay. You will need to glue the tongue and groove joints together with WPVA glue as you are fitting the planks.
If the flooring is for a busy area or a commercial area then it is recommended to fix it into position by gluing it down to the subfloor using flexible flooring adhesive. For further information about fitting any of our bamboo floors, please read our Bamboo Installation & Fitting Guide.
How do I maintain T&G flooring?
When it comes to looking after T&G flooring, it is quick and easy as long as you follow a regular cleaning routine. Sweep your bamboo on a daily basis with a soft brush to remove any dust or dirt. Then, clean at least once a week with a PH-neutral wooden floor cleaning spray and microfibre mop to remove any stubborn stains and freshen up your floor.
