Wood floors add warmth and elegance to any space, but keeping them clean and shiny requires a little effort and the right techniques. Whether you’re looking to maintain the luster of your hardwood floors or restore their shine, here’s a clear step-by-step guide to help you achieve stunning results.

Establish Your Cleaning Routine

Before your hardwood floors can shine, they need to be thoroughly cleaned. Establishing a regular cleaning routine is essential for removing dust, dirt, and debris that can dull the surface over time. Follow these simple steps:

  1. Clear the Area: Remove furniture and any obstacles from the room to allow for easy access to the entire floor.
  2. Dust Removal: Use a microfiber dusting pad or mop to gently remove surface dust and dirt. Pay special attention to corners and hard-to-reach areas where dust tends to accumulate.
  3. Mop with Cleaner: Prepare a cleaning solution by mixing a recommended hardwood floor cleaner, such as Bona Hardwood Floor Cleaner, with water according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Use a microfiber spray mop to apply the solution evenly across the floor.
  4. Thorough Mopping: Work in small sections, ensuring thorough coverage of the entire floor surface. Avoid oversaturating the floor with cleaning solution, as excess moisture can damage hardwood.

Shine and Polish Wood Floors

With your hardwood floors thoroughly cleaned, it’s time to enhance their shine and protect them for the long term. Follow these steps for polishing:

  1. Measurement and Preparation: Calculate the square footage of the room to determine how much polish you’ll need. Before applying polish, ensure the floor is completely dry and free of any remaining cleaning solution.
  2. Recommended Bona Products:
    • Bona Hardwood Floor Polish: Specifically designed to enhance the natural beauty of hardwood floors, Bona Hardwood Floor Polish adds a durable protective layer while providing a brilliant shine.
    • Bona Microfiber Cleaning Pads: These reusable microfiber pads are designed to effectively trap dirt and debris while gently cleaning hardwood floors. They can be used with Bona floor cleaners for optimal results and are machine washable for easy maintenance.
  3. Application of Polish: Pour the Bona Hardwood Floor Polish directly onto the floor in an S pattern, starting from one corner of the room. Dampen a clean microfiber pad with polish and apply it evenly across the surface of the floor.
  4. Even Coverage: Work methodically, ensuring even coverage of the entire floor surface. Use gentle, overlapping strokes to prevent streaking and ensure a uniform shine.
  5. Drying Time: Allow the polish to fully cure for 24 hours before replacing furniture and resuming regular foot traffic on the floors.
