Q:how long does carbonized bamboo have to acclimate?
A:ACCLIMATION/CONDITIONING OF THE FLOORING After harvesting, bamboo flooring is kiln-dried for optimum service. Bamboo is hygroscopic, meaning its size and shape changes with the absorption or release of moisture. The amount of change varies with wood species, cut, and type of flooring. Therefore, controlling wood moisture content (mc) is important for success. First, acclimate the new flooring inside the home in consistent indoor temperatures of 60°-80° F and indoor humidity levels of 30% - 50%. Using a reliable species specific moisture meter, measure the moisture of the wood subfloor and flooring. The difference between the moisture of the wood subfloor and wood flooring should not exceed 4%, or 2% for planks 3” or wider (See moisture testing) Continue to acclimate the flooring until you meet these requirements. The length of acclimation time is not the determining factor. The goal of acclimation is to reach a balance between the core of the new flooring with its surroundings before assembly, fastening or installation. Depending on your local in-home conditions the use of humidification/dehumidification equipment to maintain proper in-home environment is strongly recommended. Never install bamboo flooring in rooms or homes that are not climate controlled. Acclimation is the responsibility of those overseeing the project. Not following the above recommendations can negatively impact board performance and can result in excessive movement, squeaks, board gapping, board-edge cupping, finish and other related issues.

Q:Hello, I am going to help my mom install a wood floor. We are thinking about using the horizontal carbonized bamboo. The room is small (about 9x9) and currently has tiles of linoleum that she cannot get off. Is it okay to install over these? If so, should we still lay a vapor barrier directly under the wood? Also, I believe there is plywood under the linoleum. Thank you
A:Unfortunately installing directly over; ASPHALT TILE, VCT VINYL TILES and CUSHION VYNYL is not recommended.

Q:I moved into a home with this flooring and was trying to clean it and polish it, now it looks like it has a film on it. The product I was using was Bona; I've used it on my oak flooring before. How can I get the shine back and not get a residue look?
A:To restore the original shine of a solid hardwood, bamboo, cork, and engineered 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. Not all engineered floors can be refinished because of having a thin veneer layer.
Q:What solution should I use when cleaning the Morning Star bamboo flooring?
A:Bellawood Cleaner. Thank you for your inquiry
Q:How would the Bamboo/Cork flooring hold up in a kitchen?
A:Yes bamboo or cork is a good choice for kitchens but we highly recommend you put a throw rug by the sink because an excess of water can damage any floor. Like hardwood flooring, spills should be toweled dry promptly. Strand type bamboo is a very hard and dent resistant flooring material and is a good consideration for kitchens because of high traffic. Bellawood and Morning Star Bamboo brand has a quality finish that would be necessary in a high traffic area like a kitchen.
