I don't know how others clean their bamboo but I was told to use a well squeezed out mop with just water and then buff with one of those flat micro fabric whatsits to avoid streaks. Works for me although I do add a little vinegar to the water sometimes. I've never saturated it and never washed it as I would tile or vinyl, gently does it.

I used enjo micro fibre mop for wooden floors..just with water (use a spray bottle and just moisten the floors not dripping wet). In this house with Jarrah board I use same but with a squeeze or two of the method almond floor wash. Makes the house smell lovely

Hi.

I chose bamboo flooring for the granny flat I designed for my mum at the rear of our property in Darwin primarily for sustainability reasons but also as I love the look and feel of a timber floor. The darker colour is elegant with a beautiful tonal variance and the texture, visible in the bedroom photo, feels lovely underfoot. Unfortunately it scratches really easily and looks like it's been there for several years rather than one and when installed by the provider was left with 'air pockets' which have produced spongy areas in the floor. We've been through one build-up and Wet season and thankfully no issues with the humidity at this stage. After reading the comments I would quite possibly use bamboo flooring again but try a different provider. (Not always easy in the Territory!)

Anthea.
