How to Clean Bamboo Rugs

Save

Bamboo rugs add an Asian-inspired accent to any room. Bamboo is a type of grass that has a strong, sturdy texture similar to wood. Bamboo rugs are also very strong, and do not easily absorb day-to-day residue that would otherwise damage other types of flooring. To properly clean and care for your bamboo rugs, learn how to safely remove buildup by using just a couple of household tools.

Things You'll Need

  • Dust cloth
  • Water
  • Vacuum cleaner
  • Wipe the rug with a dust cloth to get rid of light dust. Wipe with the grain of the bamboo.

  • Moisten the dust cloth slightly with warm water. Wipe the cloth across any residue or sticky areas on the rug.

  • Vacuum the rug with the vacuum's hose attachment to get between the weaving of the bamboo.

Tips & Warnings

  • Take small bamboo rugs outdoors and shake them to get rid of buildup.
