How Do I Use Bona Polish?
Simply clean the floor thoroughly, then squirt and spread the polish, and allow it to dry. Depending on the amount of traffic your floors endure, Bona typically recommends polishing every 2-3 months.
Use Bona Polish to add a protective new layer, fill in micro scratches and even out the appearance of your floor.
Always test polish in an inconspicuous section of the floor before spreading it on the entire floor.
When applying polish to your floor, use the “feathering” technique to ensure a smooth finish without lines or “start and stop” marks.
How Often Should I Clean and Polish My Floor?
Cleaning as often as you can will help minimize the dirt and dust on your floors that can act like sandpaper and wear your floor. Bona’s line of specially-formulated polishes can be used multiple times per year. Frequency of use depends entirely on the amount of traffic your floor sees, but typical homeowner floor maintenance is every two to four months.
How Long Will Cleaning and Polishing Take?
The length of time to clean and polish depends on the size of your wood floors. It is a very quick and easy process when using Bona Cleaner and Bona Polish.
Bona Polish provides a protective layer and evens out the sheen. It is an incredibly simple DIY project. No special equipment is needed. Simply remove furniture and rugs, then sweep, vacuum or dust mop your floor, and give it a wet cleaning with Bona Hardwood Floor Cleaner. Then squirt Bona Polish onto the floor, spread it with an applicator and allow it to dry. Let it dry one hour before you walk on it, and 24 hours before subjecting it to heavy traffic.
