Spilled Liquids On Wood Floor

If you spill a liquid on your wood floor, it can cause permanent stains, no matter what you treated your floor with. You should always dry up spilled water, coffee, wine and other liquids immediately. If the finish is worn or damaged, you should get it treated as soon as possible. It only gets worse with time.

Have you spilled liquids on your wood floor?

On lacquered floors:

Thoroughly wipe up any spilled liquid.

Spray the surface with Wood Floor Cleaner, use a Microfiber Cleaning Pad or Spray Mop for Wood floor and see if it removes the stain.

If you can still see the stain, you’ll probably need to re-lacquer your floor. We recommend you contact a Bona Certified Craftsman for more advice and practical help.

On oiled floors:

Thoroughly wipe up any spilled liquid.

Spray the surface with Cleaner for Oiled Floors, use a Microfiber Cleaning Pad and allow to dry thoroughly. Good ventilation or a fan helps. It may take up to a few days for the wood to be completely dry.

If you can still see the stain, first sand surface with very fine sandpaper and vacuum the floor. Then add oil to where the stain was. Be sure to choose the same oil you used previously. If you’re not sure and need assistance, we recommend you contact a Bona Certified Craftsman for further advice and practical help.
