All shipping costs and shipping promotions quoted on our website (including free shipping) are valid only to the contiguous 48 United States, and these promotions may not apply if your delivery address is located on an island, or in a rural, high density urban, or low-volume freight shipping area. If your delivery location is determined to fall within one of these areas, this website may add an additional shipping surcharge. Please note that it is the freight companies that determine which areas fall within these categories, and they increase their rates accordingly. While Ambient may still subsidize a large portion of the shipping costs, the remainder of the increased charges are the responsibility of the customer. These surcharges are always provided upfront before finalizing your purchase decision (they are not added on after the fact).
The instructions below apply to most polyurethane finishes applied to bamboo floors. For hard wax oil floors, as long as you regularly apply the wax oil you won't have the need to refinish them.
We highly recommend that you hire an experienced professional. However, if you want to tackle the job yourself, below is a general outline of the steps you will take.
Using the edger start to sand the floor down on a diagonal pattern/direction using the 36 grit sandpaper to get the existing finish off.
Then do a straight pattern/direction using the 36 grit sandpaper.
Then move to the 80 grit sandpaper and use it doing a straight pattern/direction. You may need the scraper to do the edges.
Allow enough time to dry by following the instructions on the product label, and voila you're good to go!
Once you have a smooth and dry surface you will want to apply 3 coats of the oil based polyurethane.
