Hardwood floors are all the rage these days. Everyone is putting them in or refinishing them. The question is, “How do you keep them looking good?” The answer, use Bona. At Hard to Find Items we carry a full line of Bonakemi products, so you can properly clean your hardwood floors.
Can bona be used on all hardwood floors?
No, Bona can’t be used on waxed floors. It can only be used on polyurethane or manufacture finished flooring. To test your floors, simply pour a little water out on top of your floor. Wait about 30 minutes to an hour. If the water is still beaded on top of the floor, you can use Bona. If the water has started to soak into your floor, then you have waxed floors. Only use Bona if your floors have a polyurethane or manufacture finished floor.
What Makes Bona better to use than other cleaners on hardwood floors?
Bona utilizes a water-based cleaner that is very mild on your hardwood floors, but still has the power to clean the dirt off your floors. It’s not good to use stronger cleaners like Mr. Clean, or Lysol on hardwood floors. The combination of the strength of the cleaner and the excessive amount of water used will ruin your hardwood floors. By using too much water, eventually some of that water will leach into your floors causing them to start to crack and turn blackish.
When you use bona you hardly use any water. To get started cleaning with Bona, we recommend you buy their starter package.
I use Bona and it cleans the dirt off my floor, but what can I do to restore the luster to my floors?
Eventually all hardwood floors need to be sanded and refinished, but in-between refinishing your Hardwood floors, Bona’s Hardwood Refresher or Bona’s Hardwood Floor Polish gives you the ability to restore the luster to your floors with one simple application.
Are there any tips to using Bona?
Yes, at Hard to Find Items we are experts on all the products we sell, because we have first hand experience using almost every one of our products we sell. Before you start to spray your floors with Bona’s Hardwood Floor Cleaner, take your applicator pad off the mop and rinse it under your sink and ring it out as dry as you can. This will leave you with a damp mop head, which will allow you to move your mop head across the top of your hardwood floors without it sticking to your floor because it’s too dry. Also it keeps you from using a lot of bona Hardwood Floor Cleaner just to get your mop head to slide around.
Many people have broken their mop head where it connects to the handle overtime partially due to the fact that they were putting excessive pressure on the connection because they didn’t dampen the mop head, so make sure to dampen your mop head!
