On new concrete floors, you shouldn’t lay bamboo flooring where the floor moisture reading exceeds 70%.
Use a hydrometer to determine the moisture in the floor if you are not sure. The subfloor must be clean, dry, and level.
We recommend the use of an approved underlay to act as a moisture barrier and as a leveling element.
Although Enspire Bamboo Flooring is easy to install, for best results we recommend the use of a qualified flooring professional to lay your floor.
Bamboo flooring is versatile as it can be cut to fit any floor plan. We recommend the flooring is installed parallel to how light enters the room to ensure the natural colour variations in the flooring look as nature intended.
Enspire Bamboo Flooring’s simple and unique Uniclic interlocking system once laid can be walked on immediately as there is no waiting for glues to cure or sanding to take place.
Bamboo flooring is easy to maintain, but we recommend cleaning with dry cloths and minimal liquid. If wet cleaning is the only option, wipe dry immediately.
To remove stubborn stains, we recommend the use of denatured alcohol.
