Hardwood floors are no small investment. So our commitment to making your floor last doesn’t stop when it’s finished. On the following pages, you’ll see how our exclusive maintenance system is specifically formulated to enhance the life of your newly finished wood floor.
For over 75 years, BonaKemi, the worldwide leader in wood floor finishing technology, has been protecting and maintaining the natural beauty of wood floors with premium quality finishes, polishes and cleaners used by flooring professionals the world over. You’ll find Bona® wood floor finishes and care products are as natural as your wood floor and carry the Environmental Choice Seal, giving you the assurance that you’re “Doing The Right Thing” for you, your family and your environment. By following these 3 easy steps, you can enjoy the beauty and warmth of your wood flooring for a lifetime. Proper care and maintenance will preserve the luster of the floor’s finish, plus help the topcoat finish protect the wood beneath.
These cleaning and maintenance tips apply to wood floors sealed and finished with a clear protective coating such as polyurethane or factory prefinished UV coatings. Bona® Swedish Formula Hardwood Floor Cleaner is not recommended for use on oiled or waxed floors.
General cleaning of your wood floors is recommended once every 1-2 weeks. Floors subjected to heavy traffic should be cleaned on a more frequent basis.
Bona® WoodFloorWipe® Hardwood Floor Cleaning Kit
For easy, safe maintenance of your wood floor, we recommend the Bona® WoodFloorWipe® Hardwood Floor Cleaning Kit, containing “All You Need” a specially designed Bona® Mop, a spray bottle of Bona® Swedish Formula® Hardwood Floor Cleaner, washable terry cloth mop cover, along with complete How-To Guide care instructions.
Vacuum or Sweep
Always vacuum or sweep to remove dirt and grit prior to cleaning your wood floors with the Bona® WoodFloorWipe® Hardwood Floor Cleaning Kit.
Lightly mist an 8’x8′ area of your wood floor, or directly mist the Bona® Mop terry cloth cover, with Bona® Swedish Formula® Hardwood Floor Cleaner.
Using a back and forth motion, clean the floor surface with your Bona® Mop or clean, soft cloth. Finish one area before moving on to the next. The Bona® Mop’s low profile and easy-to-maneuver swivel-head makes it the perfect cleaning tool for the hard-to-reach areas such as under furniture and cabinets, around doors or in tight corners. When your terry cloth cover or cloth becomes soiled, replace with clean ones. Continued use of excessively soiled covers or cloths may cause streaking. Your Bona® Mop terry cloth covers are reusable. Simply wash and dry them as you would any toweling.
When a spill occurs, soak up the bulk liquid promptly. Mist the affected area with Bona® Hardwood Floor Cleaner and clean with your Bona® Mop or a clean, soft cloth.
