Care and Maintenance

Proper care and maintenance are vital to ensuring a long life for your laminated engineered bamboo panels. For exterior applications, be sure to clean off any chemicals, such as lawn-care chemicals, insect repellent, or other chemicals that may come into contact with the wall cladding materials immediately to avoid any chemical reactions or discoloration with the stain or finish. When selecting cleaning materials, you can use typical cleaners found in the market for composite materials. Wall cladding materials can be easily cleaned with the use of a power washer set to the lowest setting (less than 1,200 psi), and the user must start at least 18 to 24 inches away from the wall. Before using any cleaner on the panels, it is recommended to test cleaners and power washing strength on scrap materials prior to using on finished products.
