Maintenance:

Regarding maintenance is desirable:

The oil has not hardened when your furniture is delivered.

Assume that it takes about three weeks.

In those weeks you must be alert with moisture.

So immediately remove circles with a dry cloth.

What is undesirable:

Certainly, in the first weeks do not put any non-breathing

rugs or sail on the table.

Oil breathes for a long time.

If you close the material, sweat stains may occur,

especially if there are hot drinks on it.

You must always be alert with acids such as baby food, vinegar and wines.

This is not unique for oil-finished surfaces.

After three weeks you can start working more often with a wet cloth.

What we do recommend is to use Rubio Monocoat soap.

This keeps the oil layer intact and applies an extra protective layer.

In the past, Bloooms products were only finished with natural oil.

But innovations offer new possibilities.

So now we finish all our products with a combination of oil and protection based on nanotechnology.

This offers environmentally friendly and very strong protection against water.

It is also dirt resistant.

This combination makes our products suitable for indoors and outdoors.

Ideal for the bathroom.

Both products form a molecular connection with the material.

We supply maintenance products, naturally with expert advice.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Specifications for traditionally glued bamboo

 Finish:  Satin
 Transparency: 0.00%
 Structure: Closed
 Hardness: Warm         
 Acoustics: Hard
 Odour:    Medium
 Fire retardant: Unknown
 Scratch resistance: Good
 Chemical resistance: Good
 Fit for recycling:  Yes

Weight density:
1 layer bamboo 20 mm:  5.85
5 layer bamboo 20 mm:  6.75

Finish: Rubio monocoat oil
Water free and VOC-free
Rubio Monocoat Oil Plus does not contain water or organic solvents.
The product mainly consists of natural ingredients.
The technology: colours and protects through molecular bonding
Rubio Monocoat Oil Plus adheres with the uppermost microns of the wood, through molecular bonding with the fibres (no film forming, no saturation method).
Through the molecular bonding a long-lasting and durable protection is achieved.
The method word assessing the resistance against wear is based on the NEN 2072 Prefabricated laminated parquet - Methods of test and inspection.
The resistance to water is determined according NEN-EN 13442.
Pleasant work top
Since bamboo actually is a grass fibber, it has a much finer structure than most types of wood. Because of this, the surface is by nature already tough and smooth.  It is virtually scratch free. In short, an ideal work top for work desks and dining tables alike.

Virtually maintenance free
Bloooms finishes the bamboo with a natural oil. This forms a molecular bonding with the wood, resulting in an extremely dense and durable layer. This layer is not on the wood, as with paint or varnish, but becomes a part of it. Therefore it is extremely resistant to wear.
The treated bamboo is also excellently resistant against moisture. Stains on

Care:
Traditionally glued bamboo requires little to no care.
It absorbs in water circles in limited amounts.
Do not let acids (wine and vinegar) stain.

The technology: colours and protects through molecular bonding
This oil adheres to the uppermost microns of the wood, through molecular bonding with the fibres (no film forming, no saturation method).

Durable protection
Through the molecular bonding a sustainable and solid protection is achieved.
To achieve this molecular bonding, it is important to respect the processing time, several minutes. The better the fibres are bonded, the stronger the protection.

I gladly invite customers to share their experiences with my product.
I am happy with the positive reactions, the less positive ones are something for me to work on.

Hello Paul,

The table is doing really fine.
That oil truly is miracle stuff.
Whatever we spill on it: coffee, wine, grease, etc.: we'll wipe off the table with water and glassex or something like that.
Firs a stain/ dark spot will appear, but after a while it will disappear.
The table still looks brand new.
It's a good idea to sell the oil separately.
In due time our table will probably need another layer. I'll come visit you when that's the case.

Best wishes from Stieneke

For our products I have proprietary maintenance materials on sale, such as soap.
An advantage of this soap is that it will leave the oil intact.

Experiences:

Spontaneous reactions from customers!


I am happy with positive reactions, with the less positive reactions I go to work.

Hi Paul,

The table is still fine.

That oil is really a panacea.

Whatever we spill on: coffee, wine, grease, etc.: we take the table with water and glass or similar.

Then there is first a circle / dark spot, but after a while it disappears.

The table still looks like new.

Good idea to sell that oil separately.

Tzt will also have a layer left over here. I'll come by if it's that far.

greetings from S.

Good morning Paul

At the new table I think I had to get used to it.

Meanwhile he "stands" (half turn turned, the paintings on the wall hung different, etcetera)

And now, a few days after arrival, I think it's the most beautiful table ever. He will never leave,

I sit there a lot, am already attached to it, it is really my place. (with nice view of the garden).

Thank you for making such a beautiful piece for us and my sorry that I was not that enthusiastic at first.

Sincerely

I.

Dear Paul,

The little Desk is BEAUTIFUL! and is MOOOI in my house. Thank you for your work.

It took a while before I could respond, because -  the little desk was sent a day later than planned.                              

I was not home when the delivery driver rang.

The package was therefore delivered to a post office. I could pick it up later,

but: it was not possible to bring it to my house by bike or by hoisting (not because it was too heavy,

but because I could not include the package).

So I had to arrange someone with a car. That worked last Saturday. What turned out that car was too small                

(still a decent car though). So a larger car, where the package could.

But all we laugh.

It is now there and I am happy with it, I want to let you know - the maker -.

I also want to order a bottle of that cleaning stuff (for you never know).

How much does that cost?

With best regards,

L

Dear Paul,

The drawer arrived last Saturday and he is already hanging under my mirror. I'm very happy with it.
He looks really nice and fits well together! ( see picture)
Thank you! Continue your business with success.

With friendly greetings,

E
