Bamboo products can be used indoor and outdoor, when used outdoor it is very important to do regular maintenance just like any outdoor wood, metal products. Washing the bamboo furniture with detergence mixed with anti mildew additive is strongly encourage at least once every 6 months, more may be needed if you live in wet climate, also location of the bamboo pieces is very critical due the fact that mildew will occur easily when bamboo is under wet condition for a extended period of time. Cover or move the bamboo furniture indoor during off season is also one of the better way to prolong your life of your bamboo furniture outdoor.
Our bamboo products are made of natural bamboo with coats of outdoor varnish. In strong sunlight, the varnish will breakdown and the bamboo will begin to weather.
Many customers prefer the natural aged look of bamboo with weathers much like the cedar wood, first getting darker and ending up a silver grey color.
We recommend coating the bamboo with UV protected outdoor varnish once per year, preferably at the end of summer to maintain color.
Bamboo should last many years in outdoor. Avoid direct contact with the earth to prevent rot.
Please observe and following these steps to maintain your bamboo products
I hope you enjoy them as much as fun as we design and build them.
