Are you puzzling over the installation of bamboo flooring. Here I share some points with you.

1）Sub floor: surface shall be clean, dry, smooth, and free of dirt, wax, oil, paint that would interfere with adhesive bond.

3）Application: If the subfloor is wood, then bamboo floor can be either nailed down or glued down. But if the subfloor is concrete, bamboo floor can only be glued to it.
