Strand Bamboo Flooring Maintenance & Warranty
Some Advice for Keeping Your Strand Bamboo Floor Looking like New
- Simply strive to keep your strand bamboo floor clean- grit and dirt will accelerate wearing of your floor.
- Never wax your strand bamboo floor. The urethane-based finish is designed to protect your floor for years.
- Wipe up any spills immediately. Water left for extended periods on any wood floor can lead to damage.
- Protect your floor by installing felt or plastic protectors under "feet" of furniture.
- Wheeled chairs should have wide casters.
- Beware of high heels! An average size woman in high heels can exert as much as 2,000 pounds per square inch of pressure on the floor. This can damage even the toughest flooring material.
- Your DuroDesign strand bamboo floor very well protected by our MP765 finish, however your floor can by dulled and scratched by the accumulation of grit, sand and dirt. Your strand bamboo floor should be kept clean by routine vacuuming.
- Occasionally, clean your bamboo floor with a damp mop using wood cleaners formulated for pre-finished hardwood or laminate floors diluted in a bucket of water. These products are commonly found in any home improvement center or by visiting any reseller of hardwood floors.
- We encourage using walk-off mats at entrance doors and in front of the kitchen sink. Avoid rubber backed or other non-ventilated mats or rugs as they may trap water underneath and can cause damage to your floor.
- You can minimize contraction and expansion of your strand bamboo floor by avoiding extremes in temperature and relative humidity in your home and having adequate climate controls.
- Observe the re-finishing maintenance schedule and your floor will last a lifetime. If you have high-traffic areas, re-finish the strand bamboo floor when it begins to show signs of wear.
