Bamboo Cleaner is a cleaner for all your bamboo outdoor materials.
Bamboo is a natural material. Due to weathering, bamboo is susceptible to tarnish, mold and dirt. This is a natural process and often cannot be completely prevented.
With our Bamboo Cleaner you make bamboo products such as poles, fences and deck boards with a simple treatment well clean again. Suitable for both natural and dark bamboo species.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
Shake the bottle a few times well back and forth, press and then turn the nozzle at the front a quarter turn to the left or right.
Spray the surface to be cleaned and let the Bamboo Cleaner soak in for a while. Then you can remove all the loosened dirt using a brush or sponge, and plenty of water. This can also be done with a garden hose or watering can.
After use, turn the spray head again a quarter turn to the left or right until it is OFF. Store the bottle in a dark, cool place and out of reach of children.
With photosynthesis, bamboo extracts CO2 from the air and releases oxygen. Bamboo produces about 40% more oxygen than wood and absorbs up to 35% more CO2 than wood. That makes bamboo better for CO2 offsetting than wood.
More about Bamboo
Bamboo & Environment
The use of bamboo greatly reduces the greenhouse effect and climate change. Bamboo absorbs greenhouse gases and releases 35% more oxygen into the atmosphere than an equivalent species of hardwood. This is due to its high growth rate and photosynthesis. Climate change has been an issue for several years, which is why bamboo could be included as a certified hardwood. Bamboo is also suitable for biomass production because it gives the second highest biomass on earth.
Bamboo & Cracks
A natural characteristic of bamboo is that cracks may appear vertically, this cannot be prevented. These are caused by differences in climate and humidity.
If you treat the bamboo poles with an oil or lacquer, the number of cracks will be less than if you do not apply a protective layer. But unfortunately this cannot be prevented 100%. The cracks can expand and shrink depending on the climate.
Protect the forest: build with bamboo
Every year more than 13 million hectares of forest are cut down.That's 1140 soccer fields every hour. Of course forests are planted, but the annual net loss of forest is over 7 million hectares, which is more than twice the area of Belgium. If those forests were not cut down, up to a quarter less CO2 would be released into the air.
