If you’ve invested in bamboo screening for your patio or backyard, you probably want to make sure it stays looking good for as long as possible. That’s why it’s important to know how to properly care for and clean your bamboo screen. If you’re looking for tips on how to clean your bamboo screen, read on!
Bamboo screening is a great way to add privacy to your backyard or patio.
Bamboo screening is a great way to add privacy to your backyard or patio. It’s a natural material, so it’s easy to care for and will last for years. There are two main types of bamboo screening: classic and heavy duty.
Classic bamboo screening is best for indoor use because of its lighter weight; this type comes in different widths, including 6′, 9′ and 12′ wide rolls. Classic bamboo screens can be used as panels or woven together like traditional Venetian blinds; they’re also available with holes that let air flow through more freely than solid panels do (which makes them ideal for patios).
Heavy-duty bamboo screens are ideal for outdoor applications such as fences, pergolas and trellises. They’re available in 4′, 5′, 6′ 8′ 10′ 12′ 14″ 16′, 18′, 20″ or 24′.
It’s also easy to take care of and keep clean.
Bamboo screening is a natural material, which means it’s easy to care for. There are a lot of things you can do to keep your bamboo screen looking its best.
You may have heard that bamboo screen isn’t as durable as other types of screening because it’s more susceptible to scratches and dents. While this is true if you’re using your bamboo screen with heavy furniture or large items (e.g., couches), it’s important to remember that bamboo comes from the same plant family as grasses—it has natural flexibility and strength in addition to being resilient against moisture and insects. The key here is that you should use common sense when caring for your home furnishings so they don’t get damaged too easily over time!
The first step toward cleaning your dirty bamboo screens is dusting off any cobwebs or dust bunnies with an old rag before washing them with warm water mixed with soap suds and then dry them thoroughly afterwards by either hanging them outside on the porch railing during good weather days or leaving them out overnight so they’ll dry faster inside during rainy ones instead — just make sure there aren’t any bugs around first either way though since these pests like eating into wood fibers too much too quickly than anything else
In fact, most classic bamboo screening is made of natural materials that are already resistant to mildew and mold.

Bamboo can withstand a lot of abuse, so if you live in an area prone to insects like termites or ants, you may want to consider using an insecticide spray on the exterior of your windows. The good news is that because bamboo is such an effective material for keeping out pests when left untreated it will also work just fine if sprayed with an insecticide once or twice a year.
There are many different types of herbicides available today at big box stores like Home Depot or Lowe’s but they’re not all created equally! Some contain harmful chemicals which could potentially damage your home furnishings over time if not correctly applied; others may cause serious side effects after prolonged exposure such as feverishness or nausea (check out our article about “Natural Ways To Get Rid Of Mold”).

All you need to do is follow these simple steps.
- Brush off loose dirt from the surface. Using a soft brush, gently sweep away any dust that’s accumulated on your bamboo screen. You can use a soft wire brush if you have the heavy duty version of our bamboo and a soft brush if you have the classic bamboo screen roll. Don’t worry about getting it perfect; simply removing as much dust as possible will help keep your screen clean for longer!
You’ll want to start by giving your bamboo a good brush-down.
You’ll want to start by giving your bamboo a good brush-down. Use a soft brush or wire brush and gently sweep away any dust, dirt, or other debris that has accumulated on the surface of the screen. You can use a soft cloth for this step if you like, but make sure it’s clean before you do so that it doesn’t get caught in any holes or crevices in the bamboo itself.
You might also consider using a broom with soft bristles on its head to sweep up dust and crumbs from off of your screen frame; just make sure not to hit too hard lest you damage something! If possible, use one of those fancy floor brooms with plastic bristles instead (we’ve got some at home). Alternatively: another great option is having no problem sweeping up those pesky crumbs left behind by whatever delicious snacks were recently consumed—you know what we’re talking about!
After getting rid of all these tasty tidbits stuck in between its fibers (and possibly even inside them), then comes time for…
If you have the heavy duty version of our bamboo, you can use a soft wire brush and light pressure to remove stuck-on dirt and debris.
If you have the heavy duty version of our bamboo, you can use a soft wire brush and light pressure to remove stuck-on dirt and debris. Don’t push your broom too hard or you may damage the bamboo surface instead of just leaving marks on it for some time.
With classic bamboo screen rolls, use a soft brush and a little more pressure.
- Use a soft brush.
- Lightly brush your bamboo screen with the soft brush, moving in one direction. Don’t push hard! This can damage the screen and cause it to fall out of its frame. If you need to use more pressure, hold the blade of your hand against the top of the bamboo strip while you brush it with your other hand. This should help prevent any damage from over-brushing.
- Do not use wire brushes or hoses/pressure washers on classic bamboo screens as these cleaning products could cause splintering or tearing along with unsightly watermarks and streaks on your window treatments.
Either way, make sure not to push your broom too hard – it won’t damage the bamboo, but it will leave marks on the surface for quite some time!+You may be tempted to just hose down your bamboo screen with water.
You may be tempted to just hose down your bamboo screen with water. Don’t do that! While it will get the job done, hosing down bamboo screens can cause damage to the screen and leave marks on its surface.
Instead, use a soft-bristled brush or a cloth dampened with soapy water (preferably environmentally friendly) and gently wipe away dirt as it appears. You can also use a soft cloth and some mild detergent if you want to clean more thoroughly than just removing surface grime. When cleaning with soap, avoid harsh chemicals like bleach or ammonia because they could potentially damage your screen’s finish and cause discoloration over time – especially when exposed to sunlight!
After all, it’s a natural material – won’t water solve all its problems? Nope! Hosing down the screen will only rinse away loose, surface dirt.
While it may seem like a natural material, bamboo will react to water the same way any other wood would. Water can cause splitting and warping, mildew and mold growth (which is dangerous for anyone with allergies), rotting of the stalks, splintering and cracking. The best way to clean your bamboo screening is with an all-natural cleaner that does not contain chlorine or harsh chemicals.
Because of its porous design, water will simply be absorbed by the screen without removing any grime or stain-causing grime.

If you try to clean bamboo with just water, you will only rinse away loose dirt and debris. The best way to clean your bamboo screen is by using a cleaning agent that has been specially formulated for use with this type of material.
So, just give your screen a good hosing with water from time to time, and it will stay fresh for years to come! The bamboo screening is a great option for privacy in your backyard or patio. It’s easy to clean, durable enough to withstand the elements, and looks beautiful no matter what you do with it. And now that you know how simple it is—just remember these steps next time you need some water pressure on your bamboo!
