Any type of flooring can undergo damage when exposed to water, especially if the water sits on the surface for a long time. However, bamboo is notably more durable when exposed to water than other hardwood flooring options. Bamboo doesn’t absorb moisture and expand quite like other hardwood flooring does. A bamboo floor can resist water for about 30 hours. If you clean up spills as soon as they happen, you shouldn’t have to worry about damaging your bamboo floors. When cleaning your floors with water, be sure to dry the surface when you are done.
Kitchens are one of the messiest rooms in any home. Fortunately, bamboo can stand up against dirt and spills because bamboo is easy to clean. When removing crumbs and dirt, use a vacuum cleaner that doesn’t have a beater bar (this bar can scratch bamboo). If you spilled any liquids, a mop can get the job done. Just be sure any cleaning product you are using is pH neutral. A pH neutral product will protect the finish of your bamboo flooring, while more acidic cleaners will eat away at the surface and leave unsightly spots.
Now that you better understand how to care for bamboo flooring, you’re ready to pick the perfect flooring for your kitchen. Bamboo is available in solid, engineered, or strand woven options.
