How to clean bamboo flooring

How different is the process of cleaning bamboo floorboards? What different steps are required as compared with cleaning another type of flooring? Any tips and advice that I should take on board? Any help would be really appreciated.

"The boards will likely be pre finished in the factory using a clear laquer.

Just use warm water with a mild detergent sparingly on a mop.

Dont get the floor soaking wet as this may cause swelling.

Any badly worn areas can be rubbed down in the future with sandpaper, and re laquered to avoid the bamboo getting discoloured with dirt, and UV from sunlight."

"I installed bamboo flooring in a relatives house and all they use is the flash mops with changeable wipes.
A mob would get it far too wet if you weren’t being careful"
