About wood floor varnish
Floor varnish is one of the most common wood surface treatments. Varnish is available in several gloss levels from completely matt to glossy. A varnished floor is highly resistant to abrasion and chemicals. It is important that you clean and maintain your varnished wood floors in the right way.
Things to think about when you clean your varnished wood floor:
Protecting your wood floors is simple. By routinely cleaning, you remove dust and dirt before they scratch and dull the finish, or wear the floor.
Always keep water to a minimum when cleaning your wood floors. If you spill (food or drinks), wipe up immediately to prevent any permanent damage or staining.
Sweep or vacuum your wood floors as often as needed. Use our Bona Microfiber Dusting Pad to remove dust and grit that act like sandpaper to damage the floor’s surface. Then use Bona’s mild, specially formulated Wood Floor Cleaner for best results.
Do not use ”all-purpose” cleaners on your wood floors as they tend to leave a dull residue and you end up using too much water, which is damaging to your wood floors.
Things to think about when you maintain your varnished wood floor:
If your wood floors are starting to look dull or have small scratches, you can use Bona Wood Floor polish or a refresher to revive them.
Polish and refresher add lustre to your dull wood floors and act as a layer of protection against wear and tear.
If you have laid a wood floor in an area where there is a high risk of spilling water, like in a kitchen or bathroom, apply a polish or refresher to add a layer of protection to your new wood floors.
Polish or refresher can be applied as needed but usually a few times a year. Always make sure the wood floor is cleaned before re-applying.
