CARE OF YOUR BAMBOO PRODUCTS

The sun will absorb the natural oils and bleach it to a whitish colour. After a period of time the sun and rain’s constant weathering will start turning the Bamboo to a silvery-grey colour, similar to timber when it is left outside.

Bamboo doesn’t rot – this only happens when it is planted in the ground. Cracking sometimes occurs especially during sudden hot spells when the air inside the culm heats up to equal the outside pressure. This is a natural characteristic and does not affect the strength or integrity of Bamboo.

Exposure to constant water encourages the growth of mould and fungus on the Bamboo culm, but these can be washed off with a stiff brush and hose if required. Weathered Bamboo becomes more porous, enabling oil, paint or stain to penetrate. This does not happen when the Bamboo is new. Regular maintenance by simply rubbing an oily cloth of 50% linseed oil and 50% turpentine extends the life of Bamboo indefinitely.
