  • Natural Bamboo flooring typically ships within 5-10 business days and typically delivers within 7-15 business days.
  • Once your bamboo flooring ships, an email will be automatically sent to you with your tracking information.

Bamboo flooring is very easy to keep clean and maintain. Maintenance of your floor typically includes:
  • Daily or weekly dust mopping or sweeping may be needed to remove dirt, dust, and debris.
  • Do not use vacuums with rotating beater bars on hard surfaces.
  • Make sure to periodically clean exterior and interior floor mats to ensure that tracking of mud, dirt and debris does not persist.
  • Do not use abrasive cleaners that leave dull residues.
  • Never wet mop the floor with water and do not allow excess cleaner to remain on the floor surface as this may permanently damage the wood.
  • Steam cleaners are not recommended.

Our bamboo flooring is easy to install. Installation of our bamboo planks is as follows:


Inspection:
Prior to installation, inspect the bamboo planks in daylight for visible faults/damage. Check if subfloor/site conditions comply with the specifications described in these instructions. If you are not satisfied do not install, and contact your supplier.

Tools and Materials Required:
  • Electric Saw
  • Expansion Gap Spacers
  • Pencil
  • Adjustable T-Square
  • PE film or 6 Mil Poly Vapor barrier sheeting
  • Tape

Moisture Protection:
  1. Lay the PE film or 6 mil poly vapor barrier sheeting, allowing for at least 20 cm (8”) overlapping and tape.
  2. Turn the film upward 5 cm (2”) along the walls.
  3. Trim after the skirting boards are fixed.

Before Laying:
  1. Begin installation next to an outside wall.
  2. Establish a straight working line by measuring an equal distance from the wall at both ends and snapping a chalk line.
  3. The distance you measure from the wall should be the width of the plank plus about 3/8” for expansion space.
  4. Work from several boxes of flooring and “dry lay” the floor before permanently laying the floor.
  5. Before gluing a floor you will want to test for moisture.
  6. If moisture is not in line with the manufacturers specifications, a sealer will need to be applied.

Expansion Gaps:
Provide 3/8” expansion gaps to walls and around other fixed objects.

Floating Floor Installation:
  1. Start in the corner.
  2. Start first row with the groove toward the wall.
  3. Glue end joints of the first row by applying a small continuous bead of tongue and groove adhesive.
  4. Always maintain a 3/8” expansion gap between the flooring and wall and other fixed objects.
  5. Use spaces to maintain this expansion gap.
  6. Lay subsequent rows of flooring by applying glue to side and end joints fitting planks together with a tapping block.
  7. Remember to stagger end joints from row to row at least 8” apart.

Note: Clean up any adhesive that is on the face of the floor by using a damp rag. DO NOT allow adhesive to dry on the flooring face as it is difficult to remove without damaging the finish.


Nail Down Installation:
  1. Make sure your subfloor is tested for moisture content and is properly prepared.
  2. Use an air stapler/nailer compatible with the profile of your flooring material.
  3. Test a sample to make sure it is.
  4. Start in the corner.
  5. Lay the first line of planks inside the chalk line with the grooved edge toward the wall.
  6. Always leave at least a 3/8” expansion gap between the flooring and wall and other fixed objects.
  7. In order to affix the first rows, you will either need to face nail the planks or glue them.
  8. Once adhered, finish laying the subsequent rows by using a nailer/stapler to blind nail the top inside edge of tongue at a 45 degree angle.
  9. Nail each board every 8” and within 2” of each end.
  10. Remember to stagger the end joints from the row to row at least 8” apart.
  11. Use a tapping block to fit boards together.
  12. The last two rows will need to face-nailed, (or glued down) in the same manner as the first two rows.

Note: It may be necessary to face-nail in doorways or tight areas where the nail/stapler can't fit. You can also glue down these areas as well.


Glue Down Installation:
  1. Make sure your subfloor is tested for moisture content and is properly prepared.
  2. First spread the proper adhesive with the proper trowel over the floor.
  3. Once the adhesive has setup sufficiently, lay the first row of flooring with the groove facing the wall.
  4. Always leave at least a 3/8” expansion gap between the flooring and wall and other fixed objects.
  5. When the first section is finished, continue to spread adhesive and flooring section by section.
  6. Use a tapping block to fit planks together.
  7. Use spacers during installation to maintain this expansion gap.
  8. Remember to stagger end joints from row to row at least 8” apart.
  9. Walk each section of flooring in order to make sure it is well bonded to the subfloor.
  10. Flooring planks on the perimeter of the room may require weight on them.

Note: Use a damp cloth to immediately remove any adhesive that gets on the flooring surface.
