Solution for Scratched Bamboo Floors

Answered by Brendan ~ March 8, 2010 ~ No Comments

Like many Californians, we had done some green remodeling and put in bamboo kitchen flooring. Now it's brittle and scratched. I think we used the wrong finish. Is there a solution?

I think your floor is fine but I do think a refinishing is in order. If the finish is brittle and scratched a sand and refinish is your best solution. Trying to touch up what you have is only going to help briefly and then you are going to be right back where you started.

If you are planning to do this yourself, you can rent floor-sanding equipment at most rental yards. For a DIY floor finish that will yield great results and a lasting finish, an oil-modified urethane is what I would recommend. If you are going to hire someone to refinish your floors expect to pay about $1-2 per square foot for the sanding and $2-3 per square foot for the finish.
