Finishing the Job

  • Remove expansion spacers and install base and/or quarter round moldings to cover the expansion space.
  • Install any transition pieces that may be needed (reducer, t-moldings, etc.).
  • Do not allow foot traffic or heavy furniture on floor for 24 hours or as adhesive manufacturer requires.
  • Stack the boxes up to 5 high, cross stacking is preferable.
  • Vacuum your floor to remove any dirt or debris.

Cleaning and Maintenance

The maintenance program for Ambient bamboo flooring is designed to be user friendly. For detailed instructions you can visit our bamboo floor cleaning maintenance and care page. The latest advances in finish technology are used in our manufacturing process to help aid product performance and maintenance. The use of products like wax, water or oil soaps should be avoided.

After your floor has been installed, floor protectors should be placed under the legs of chairs and tables. Doors leading outside should have floor mats placed both inside and out. Your floor should be cleaned weekly with the use of a suction vacuum, not abrasive rotary brush vacuums, to remove grit and debris from the surface of the flooring. Higher traffic areas may require more frequent cleaning to keep the floor free of grit and abrasive debris that can damage the floor and finish.

Professional cleaning products such as Bam-Brite Bamboo Floor Cleaner, Bona Hardwood Floor Care, and others may be used for maintenance and daily cleaning. For small stains and grit marks, you can use a damp cloth to rub them off followed by a dry cloth. For removing tough stains such as paint, adhesive residue, and gum, you can use more heavy-duty Bona products. We strongly suggest testing your desired cleaning product on a leftover flooring plank prior to cleaning your actual floor, to ensure that product does not damage the factory finish.
