Bamboo Floor Prob
The fix is going to depend on the problem. If the white marks are actually scratches in the wood it's going to be a different fix than if it is just a residue from something on the matress or from raising a bit of the finish from the floor.
Try LIGHTLY rubbing your fingernail over the mark (along the mark, not across it). If this removes any of the mark, then you've an easy fix: get a Teflon scour pad and a very little bit of lemon or orange oil and, with the oil on the pad, not the floor, remove the mark. Then remove any oil residue.
If the mark is some of the finish removed, or actually IN the floor: Get a scrap piece of the floor and replicate the mark on it. Lightly clean the mark up with mineral spirits (not water, that will darken the wood where the finish has been scratched away). Let that dry completely. If the wood is "natural" then you should be able to use a clear poly in a matching finish (satin, gloss, etc.). If it is stained, then you can experiment on the scrap to match the color, then apply the poly. Use a 0000 steel wool LIGHTLY between at least 2 (3 is better) applications of the poly. You will end up living with the dent, but the color/finish should match up well.
