28 Oct Extend the Life of your Bamboo using these Bamboo Maintenance Products
Bamboo is durable, sustainable, and low-cost construction material, making it a top choice for homeowners. It is also valued for its versatility—capable of doing a range of purposes such as privacy screening, decking, wall cladding, and shading. Furthermore, it requires little maintenance which makes it easy to take care of.
However, this should not be an excuse to not give bamboo the proper care it deserves. You have to keep in mind that even the strongest material will wear over time.
Fortunately, caring for bamboo is relatively easy. With the right guidelines and maintenance products, you’ll be assured that your bamboo materials would remain strong and attractive for years to come.
House of Bamboo, Australia’s trusted source of high-quality natural materials, proudly offers a range of cleaners and oil stains that would help extend the life of your bamboo. Check out the following bamboo maintenance products!
4 Bamboo Maintenance Products You Should Check Out
1. Bamboo Cleaner
At first sight, the small particles of dirt or the tiny spot of mould growing on your bamboo materials may appear harmless. However, these organic matters would penetrate into the bamboo’s finish over time, leaving it weakened and susceptible to irreparable damage.
Fortunately, you can prevent this from happening by simply cleaning your bamboo materials on a regular basis.
House of Bamboo’s very own bamboo cleaner can help you effectively remove dirt, grease, and other culprits from your panels or flooring. And unlike other cleaners that would irritate you with their strong chemical scent, this one is safe to use as it is 100% environmental-friendly.
For the proper disinfection of your bamboo materials, simply add a small amount of the cleaning solution to a cloth or mop. Then use it to gently rub the dirty surface and wipe away stains.
You can also use this bamboo cleaner to prepare the bamboo’s surface for subsequent treatment or deeper cleaning.
2. Bamboo Protector and Rejuvenator
Aside from regularly cleaning your bamboo to ensure durability, you also have to think about preserving its natural appearance.
House of Bamboo offers a wide selection of bamboo protector and rejuvenators to help you with this task. Available in different colours of coating, this product is meant to be applied to outdoor bamboo structures, screens, decking, or furniture for proper treatment.
It penetrates the bamboo’s finish and acts as a transparent sealer to prevent damage against UV rays and weathering. Once it is completely absorbed, it gives off a glossy finish and enhances the bamboo poles’ natural hue.
This product ultimately provides long-term protection while retaining the innate beauty of your bamboo products.
3. WOCA Oil
WOCA oil acts as a protective stain and oil finish in one. It can provide a strong dirt and water-repellent surface to your bamboo products while also enhancing its natural colour and texture.
Aside from being a dual-purpose bamboo maintenance product, WOCA oil is also fast-drying and easy-to-use. You simply stain your bamboo poles with it and you instantly have a stronger, more attractive option.
You also don’t have to worry about washing the product away or suffering from irritation if you accidentally spilled it on your skin. This is due to the fact that WOCA oil is water-based and made of environment-friendly materials.
Overall, this 2-in-1 product is ideal for those who don’t have the time to constantly clean their bamboo products.
4. WOCA External Gel
If you already stained your bamboo products with oil but want a subsequent treatment, you might want to look into WOCA’s Maintenance Exterior Gel.
Available in two finishes (natural and white), this gel is intended for refreshing previously treated exterior bamboo surfaces. It is easy-to-use and a little goes a long way to protect your bamboo against the sun’s harmful rays.
Aside from UV protection, the WOCA Exterior Gel also strengthens bamboo structures and enhances its colour and overall appearance.
Bamboo is a naturally durable and low-maintenance construction material. However, it still needs proper and constant care to assure it would last for years to come. By using these maintenance products, you can extend the life of your bamboo materials.
