Morning Star Bamboo- 5/8" x 3-3/4" Prefinished Solid Golden Zebra Strand Bamboo Flooring- 30 Year Warranty

Morning Star Bamboo Flooring is one of the best bamboo floors on the market today. It is produced from old growth bamboo reeds that are at least 4 years old, thereby increasing hardness. Morning Star Bamboo Flooring creates a naturally beautiful and ecologically friendly product that evokes a feeling of luxury.

Quick Highlights:
- Real Bamboo
- Eco-Friendly
- Low Emission Adhesive
- Glue or Nail Down
- Premium Finish
- 30 Year Warranty

Strand
Twice as hard as oak, strand bamboo is an optimal choice for busy homes when durability is needed to stand up to the wear and tear of family foot traffic, active kids and even pets. 

To make strand bamboo, shredded bamboo fibers are compressed under extreme heat and pressure.  This manufacturing process yields flooring that is even harder and more dense than traditional bamboo floors. Available in a variety of colors to complement and décor, all Morning Star strand bamboo products are finished with premium coating and backed by a 30 year warranty.

And, since bamboo is a naturally sustainable grass that re-grows spontaneously after harvest, you can feel good about making an environmentally friendly flooring decision.


It's simple...
Eco-Friendly. Beautiful look. Beautiful price.

    We're hoping by removing all carpet and replacing with wood flooring it will cut back on allergy/sinus problems.

              I only gave three stars because the edges have to be joined before tilt and lock the panels together...this is difficult when you have four sections joined at the edges and are trying to tilt....this product can not be tapped together at the endsso at least three people is required if you have a wide room.

                  This is to finish a project we started 3 years ago (did main floor except 2 rooms, just finished those 2 rooms). I felt like the finish was slightly different even though it was exact same product. Not meaning color but feel and durability was definitely different.

                      Agonized over putting in this type of floor. Did not want something that was cheesey or cheap looking. This is neither. Great looking and solid. No give underneath.

                      • Q:

                        What should I be using to clean the floors? I used a mop and just water and it left water marks...
                        Asked on 5/1/2014 by Jack from Upstate NY

                        1 answer

                        • Staff Reviewer

                          A:

                          Our wood floors are manufactured for maximum durability, easy maintenance and finished with a high quality aluminum oxide water base urethane UV cured finish. This step protects the wood and helps keep the flooring looking beautiful longer. While highly durable, the finish is NOT considered indestructible. However, by observing a few precautions like setting up a regular cleaning routine and simple maintenance program to protect the finish, you can expect years of performance and beauty from your wood floor. All wood floors can show signs of wear over time. There are many factors that can affect the amount of wear. These include the size and lifestyle of your family and product location.
                          The following cleaning principles are recommended for all of our products -Hardwood, Laminates, Corks, Bamboo and other Exotics. Outlined are examples of the reasonable and necessary maintenance to be performed; this is only intended to be a basic list;
                          • Immediately after installation, be certain that the flooring is completely cleaned and dry as described below. If you must protect the flooring from traffic, use only “craft” paper, brown, red or white, this will allow the flooring to “breathe”. Do not fully cover the flooring. NEVER lay plastic of any kind or any other non-porous material over the flooring as this can trap moisture, harm the flooring or fade the finish.
                          • Sweep or vacuum regularly, since built-up dirt, grit and sand can damage the surface of the wood. If using a vacuum, use a soft brush attachment -NOT A BEATER BAR ATTACHMENT. Be certain the wheels of the vacuum are clean and do not damage the finish. When using a broom be certain that bristles are soft. You can also use a dry mop.
                          • Because of the myriad of cleaning products available and methods of each application, Lumber Liquidators cannot endorse or oversee the use of any Brand Name of floor cleaner. We do recommend cleaning products safe for urethane finishes such as our Bellawood floor cleaner.
                          • The use of a changeable terry cloth type system to clean the floor is highly recommended; apply cleaning solution to the terry cloth not the floor.
                          • NEVER use oil soaps, liquid, or paste wax products or other household cleaners that contain lemon oil, Tung oil, silicone, or ammonia on pre-finished flooring. The use of these products will harm the long-term performance and appearance of your floor and may affect future re-coating. (Damages caused by non-recommended cleaning products are not covered by warranties). NOTE: This also includes the use of vinegar and water solutions as water can damage wood. Vinegar is an acidic element that can have an oxidizing, caustic effect on the finish.
                          • In an effort to clean hardwood floors, many have experimented with a variety of cleaners on the market and end up with a new problem. “How to remove the build-up of cleaning products revealing the original surface"? If this is the case with you, we recommend consulting with a professional cleaner local to your area because they can best see the details involved and make the most accurate recommendations. If you choose to remove the layers of build-up yourself, use cotton rags instead of a mop to control the amount of liquid used.
                          • NEVER wet-mop, damp-mop, swab or flood your floor with water or any other product. Moisture can seep into the seams causing edge-cupping damage. Urethane floors do not require wet mopping. Natural floors are water resistant, not water proof. Remove all spills promptly using a soft, slightly damp cloth
                          • STEAM CLEANERS OR WET-JET swiffer; Lumber Liquidators does not recommend "Water brooms" "Wet-Jet Swiffers or steamer type cleaners on laminates, corks or hardwood floors. Although steamers may work well cleaning OTHER types of hard surface flooring, the 130° to 240° heated steam vapor can ruin wood or urethane finish resulting in warped or cupped flooring. Water and wood do not mix well, especially steam. Use these products at your own risk.
                          • Do place protective mats at entry doors to keep dirt, grit, sand and moisture from being track in from the outside.
                          • Do use area rugs in heavily traveled areas and pivot points (e.g., stair landings, room entries, etc.), especially if you have a large family or indoor pets.
                          • When using area rugs, use a rug pad with a felt, plant or PVC based backing. DO NOT use area rugs with a petroleum based rubber backing (typically black) as this can cause permanent chemical staining/etching of the floor finish.
                          • Take reasonable precautions; use a dolly and protective sheets of plywood when moving heavy objects such as furniture and appliances.
                          • Place protective pads beneath furniture legs and feet to reduce scratches and dents. Check and replace wore pads regularly.
                          • Keep pet’s nails trimmed, and paws clean and free of dirt, gravel, grease, oil, and stains.
                          • Scratches, dents and cupping are site related, not considered a manufactured defect.

                        Is this a laminate? Is this good for the heat of the southwest on a concrete floor?

                          Bamboo flooring is very much like hardwood flooring and performs well in climate controlled rooms with temperatures of 60°-80° F and indoor humidity levels of 30% - 50%.

                          Yes, bamboo is acceptable for installation in a powder room. It is recommend to put a throw rug by the sink because an excess water can damage wood. You will need to wipe up any water that sit on the floor as soon as possible. However a full bathroom that is showered in everyday may not be the best location for bamboo. Often there is too much water on the floor or humidity that can be absorbed into the flooring resulting in board edge cupping. Resilient and Tile floors are a better choice for these areas.

                          To restore the original shine of a bamboo floor a screen and re-coat may be needed or a complete refinishing. A professional sand and finish expert would have to make the determination on site on which sanding process will be needed or which can be done to restore the floors shine.

                        Can I screw this down instead of nail it down. I know the process is longer but it seems like it would be down better.

                          Strand Bamboo needs to fastened with 18 gauge cleat nails. Screws should not be utilized for nail down flooring installation.

                          For general cleaning a swiffer type system works best. Not one that sprays the floor however. Lightly damp is fine but never soak or flood mop your floor. Do not use steam mops. Have a no shoes policy as much as possible. Use felt pads on all furniture. Sweep often.

                          Bellawood Cleaner works well, find here - http://www.lumberliquidators.com/ll/s/flooring-molding-tools-accessories/floor-care-products

                          In addition, Bona Kemi makes a decent hardwood flooring cleaner.

                          Do not use oil-type cleaner of any kind.

                      • Q:

                        I would like to use Golden Zebra Strand Bamboo in a bathroom/spa, but for wall accenting (for 'warmth' of wood) and not on the floor. The room will be humid, and the product glued to the 'green' drywall board. I'm somewhat concerned about the expansion spacing as it would be nice to butt up against the tile floor. Does the product come pre-finished or will I do so with a polyurethane? Would this product be a practical application as planned?

                          Bamboo is acceptable for installation in a bathroom, but an excess of moisture can damage the flooring.  For a bathroom that is showered in everyday, especially by children, there is often just too much of a variance in the temperature and humidity for solid wood or bamboo floors. Good ventilation is a must and will need to be regulated. Expansion may be a problem as well as adhering to Greenboard. This being an experimental installation it is difficult to guaranty success. This flooring is pre-finished with water-based urethane. If you are using it in small areas or short spans, expansion may not be a problem.
