Bamboo is a type of woody grass that grows extremely quickly. This naturally sustainable material is quickly regrown with few natural resources. Like other rugs made from natural fibers, bamboo rugs are durable, dirt resistant, and environmentally friendly. Grime and other dry dinge are easily removed with regular sweeping and vacuuming, but as with other fibers such as seagrass and chenille, bamboo is susceptible to mold and mildew if soaked or if kept in a space with high humidity. If the rug gets wet, hand-dry it as much as possible then hang it to air dry.
