I just had bamboo floors professionally installed. They were prefinished. Does this mean I can clean and mop them right away?

Dam mop, yes, as long as no adhesive was used and they were prefinished.

I’m surprised your installed didn’t tell you. If adhesive was used, don’t walk on it or mop it for 24 hours. Also, if the perimeter was sealed with a silicone sealant or something similar, you should wait adequate time for it to dry before mopping the floor.

 I agree with this tip. I was too looking for such tip for my friend as she also had hardwood floor installed.
