Maintenance for Lacquered Floors

Regular cleaning is the key to keeping your wooden floor looking attractive for years to come. Cleaning wooden floors used to be a chore. The traditional way is to use a mop and a bucket with the general household cleaner mixed with water. Not any more! With a new Bona Wood Floor Cleaner, you just spray the floor and wipe it clean.

Because wood is different from other flooring materials, it requires special cleaning and maintenance products to retain its beauty. Bona has the complete answer; the bona floor care range, based on 80 years' experience of taking care of wooden floors. Professional flooring contractors, cleaning companies and architects rely on our products because they are made especially for wooden floors.

Maintenance of Lacquered Floors:

An effective maintenance programme will keep the floor clean and looking as good as possible, the following information is designed to provide a starting point for such a programme and is appropriate for both commercial and domestic floors. However, all floors are unique and will require assessment because of the factors affecting them will vary. Changes in traffic levels and seasonal changes will also need to be taken into consideration, for example, additional matting may be required during periods of snow or heavy rain. The frequency of any maintenance should reflect the use of the floor, and should be altered accordingly.

An effective maintenance regime should consist of:

1.Dry Cleaning: Floors should be cleaned daily using dry cleaning methods, such as vacuum, scissor mop or soft broom. It is important to remove any abrasive particles of grit or dirt which may scratch the floor seal when trafficked under footwear, chair legs, and other items moved across the floor.

2.Damp Cleaning: Soluble dirt should be removed by cleaning using the Bona Care Spray System or mop and bucket using the Diluted Bona Cleaner System.

3.Additional Cleaning: Timber Floors in commercial areas may often become contaminated with grease from food, sweat, or residue from other sources, may require additional cleaning to remove these materials. Cleaning using the Bona Remover will remove these non-soluble materials and restore slip resistance of the floor seal.

4.Further Protection: Traditionally floors would be treated with wax-based polish to offer additional protection to the floor seal. However, once this has occurred the floor can not receive further coats of lacquer without sanding the floor back to bare wood. An alternative is Bona Freshen Up. This polyurethane maintainer should be applied, by mop or cloth, when the floor seal appears dull due to minor scratches. This should be used following regular cleaning. On a new or recently finished floor Bona Freshen Up would be applied when the first signs of wear become visible (i.e. a dulling of the surface)
