We are fortunate that our Chapel Hill apartments with bamboo floors are so luxurious. However, it is important that you take care of your bamboo flooring in order for it to stay beautiful and new-like.
Dirt and sand carried in by your shoes can be very damaging as the tiny particles make their way into the flooring. They can cause dents and scratches and give your floors a faded look. To prevent this from happening, sweep, mop or vacuum your floors on a regular basis. Be careful to use a broom with soft bristles and do not use a vacuum with a beater bar. Also, make note to only use a damp mop that is nearly dry. You don’t want your floors immersed in water.
- Use a floor cleaner that is non-abrasive, non-alkaline and is not a wax. If the cleaner needs to be mixed with water, carefully follow the instructions. Evenly apply the cleanser to all parts of the floor with a sponge or a rag dipped in the cleanser and wrung dry.
- You can opt to make a natural cleaning solution from 1/4 cup white vinegar and 1 quart of water. As above, apply with a rag dipped into the mixture and wrung dry or apply with a sponge.
- Clean scuff marks by putting a little floor cleanser on a rag and gently scrubbing at the mark.
Now that you know how to care for our Chapel Hill apartments with bamboo floors, make sure that your floors are in tip top shape!
