When you choose bamboo flooring from 55 Flooring, you’re investing in hardwood flooring that’s treated with the industry’s leading scratch resistant coating. The density and strength of our bamboo flooring finishing surpasses nearly any other hardwood flooring experts in Orange County, California. Now, although our bamboo flooring is tough, it’s capable of picking up scratches and scuffs just like any other type of hardwood which makes prevention a huge factor in preserving your floors.

Cleaning Everyday Dust Off Hardwood Flooring

If you’ve ever seen damage on bamboo flooring, you should know that the main culprit is often to build up of dust particles and sand that get tracked into your California home. Think about it this way, the more you walk on that floor while the dirt is on it, the more you’re beating those particles into the wood ultimately scratching it. The easiest way to avoid this is by regularly mopping, sweeping, or vacuuming.

However, with that being said, there’s one thing you never want to do and that’s NEVER vacuum your bamboo flooring with a vacuum that has a beater bar. Using gentle cleaning tools is key when preserving those beautiful bamboo floors.

Deep Cleaning Bamboo Flooring

If you’re going to do a deep clean with your hardwood floors, you want to make sure you use a cleaning solution that is alkaline free and non-abrasive. You also don’t want to use a floor wax. At 55 Flooring, we’ll inform you of the products you can use to properly clean your new bamboo floors to ensure they last a long time with as minimal damage as possible.

Cleaning Scuff Marks on Hardwood Flooring

Scuff marks are incredibly common with any type of flooring that’s made from a hard material and rubber heeled shoes are usually the culprit. Make sure you ask whoever is installing your bamboo or hardwood flooring what the best solution is for removing scuff marks so you don’t damage your new investment that inevitably cost you a good amount of money.
