Whether you’ve taken the leap and invested in brand new bamboo floors or you’re looking for ways to maintain your current floors, you’re going to want to know which products are best for keeping your bamboo floors clean.
Below, we’ve broken out our recommendations into 3 main categories:
We’ve taken the time to research all of your options and have come with, what we feel, is the definitive list of the best bamboo floor cleaning products for your floors.
Before getting into our recommendations, it’s also important to understand that there are not very many bamboo-specific cleaners or products. As you will see in our list, many products that you’ll use for your bamboo floors will be labeled as general wood floor cleaners. In any case, we feel confident that these items will be just as effective for bamboo floors.
Why we chose it: Method has long been regarded as a brand with products that are safe for people, pets, and the planet. The scent and effectiveness make this product a no-brainer for your bamboo floor. Although the label does not call out bamboo specifically, this product will work just fine for you bamboo floors. But don’t just take our word for it; at the time of this writing, this product has a 4.8 star rating on Amazon.
Why we chose it: It’s a name you know and love that just so happens to be less expensive than most cleaners on the market. On average, you can expect to pay around 20% to 40% less per fluid oz when compared to other wood floor cleaners. What we love the most is that you are not missing out on the “freshness” factor. This cleaner leaves your floors clean and your space smelling amazing. For these reasons and more, you’re getting a good bang for you buck.
Why we chose it: Although this is a brand that you may not have heard of, they’ve slowly gained a following due to their ability to develop effective products that are free of the chemicals that you don’t want (they’ve even appeared on Shark Tank). In fact, their products (including the wood floor cleaner that we’re recommending) is derived from plants. If you’re looking for an eco-friendly option from an eco-conscious brand, look no further.
Why we chose it: This broom has it all! With medium-stiff bristles (not too tough for your bamboo floors), a comfort grip to make sure you aren’t hurting your palms, and the ability to get into tough-to-reach crevices, the SWOPT broom is essentially your all-in-one option. In addition, SWOPT offers a number of products that are interchangeable with the wood handle that use their SNAPLOCK™ technology. It’s efficient, effective, and your best option for a long term solution. Go with this option if you’re looking for all of the bells and whistles.
Best Affordable Option
Why we chose it: If you’re looking for an option that is going to get the job done without breaking the bank, this is your best bet. While this broom does not include any additional features out of the box, it does a great job at cleaning up any dirt and debris. One thing we love about this product is the clean design. For those with a preference for minimal designs, you’re going to love the Casabella broom. We also love the story behind this mop: the founder was actually inspired by Italian design while on vacation in Italy!
Overall, this broom should last you a considerable amount of time and will ensure that your bamboo floors are getting the cleaning that they need.
Best Soft Bristle Option
Why we chose it: Many consumers who are in the market for bamboo floors are often concerned with how easily most wood floors scratch. Even though this has lots to do with the quality of you bamboo floors, you can also be proactive in making sure that the bristles of the broom you’re going to be using often are as soft as possible. What we like is that this company claims that these will not scratch your floors. This broom also lands somewhere in the middle in terms of price when compared to other options. Choose this broom if you want to ensure that your bamboo floors will not get scratched.
Why we chose it: As was the case with our Method liquid cleaner recommendation, this dry mop from Turbo Mops has an exceptional 4.8 start rating on Amazon, and for good reason! Here is a brief summary of what this dry mop offers: microfiber mop pads that are soft enough for your bamboo floors, a 360 degree rotating mop head to help you get into every nook and cranny, and the ability use this mop on multiple floor surfaces (in case you don’t have bamboo floors throughout you entire space).
While this mop is on the higher side of the price range when compared to other dry mop options, it is worth every penny and packs a ton of value. Turbo Mops also offers the ability to purchase a refill pack so that you can still take advantage of everything else that this mop has to offer. Additionally, the mop pads are reusable, so you can choose to wash them after each use.
Best Affordable Option
Why we chose it: We have used this dry mop for some time and have seen great results with no issues at all. This is a simple, comparatively affordable mop that doesn’t need anything fancy to get the job done. In addition, O-Cedar is generally regarded as a trusted brand when it comes to cleaning products for your home, so their hardwood microfiber mop is a safe bet.
Some additional features: you can wash the mop pad up to 100 times, and you can easily store this in a closet, laundry room, or utility closet. If you’re looking for a consistent option from a recognized and trusted brand, you’ve found it.
