How To / Clean your wooden floor

Regular cleaning is the key to keeping your wooden floors at its best. With Bona’s Floor Care system, made especially for wooden floors, you just spray the floor and wipe it clean, easy and safe!
By following our step-by-step instructions on preventive care measures and daily floor care, your floor will retain its beauty for years to come.


General Floor Care Tips

  • Soak up liquid spills immediately as excessive use of water can cause permanent stains.
  • Avoid wax, vinegar and “all-purpose” cleaners, since they dull the floor’s finish.
  • Place mats or rugs near doorways and in high trafficked pathways to trap sand and grit.
  • Do not move furniture or heavy objects across the floor - carry them or use gliding furniture pads instead.
  • Use protective pads or caps on furniture
  • Trim your pet’s claws to help avoid scratches on the floor.
  • Avoid wearing high heels - they might dent the floor
