Cleaning Tips & Solutions
Are there dirty marks and scratches on your wood floor? Some floors are more easily damaged than others. It depends on the hardness of your wood floor and how the surface is treated. By keeping an eye on your wood floor and directly fixing any small damage, you’ll keep it looking tip top for a long time to come.

GREENGUARD certified products

UL Environment’s GREENGUARD Certification strives to help reduce chemical exposure by connecting people to healthier products they can trust. The GREENGUARD standards are among the most rigorous product emissions standards in the world, and they are based on available standards and guidelines from national and international public health agencies.

Take care of your indoor air – here are a few tips:

Keep your home ventilated. The more clean outdoor air you let in, the more pollutants it filters out.

Keep your home dry. Control relative humidity levels to less than 60 percent, using dehumidifiers if necessary. Clean humidifiers frequently.

Don’t smoke indoors. Obvious, but tobacco smoke contains high concentrations of thousands of pollutants.

Cut down on using harsh cleaners, solvent-based cleaners or cleaners with strong fragrances.

Activities like paint stripping, soldering or gluing, painting, sanding and rock polishing may create high levels of pollution. Why not do them outside?

Leaving cars, lawnmowers or other engines running in your garage or close to your home also emits chemicals. Switch them off when you aren’t using them.

Wash your bed linen every week to reduce allergens such as dust mites.

Leave your shoes by the door so you don’t drag in outdoor dust and dirt. Have a mat by the front door.

Use high efficiency vacuum cleaners and microfiber cloths to remove dust.

House plants filter carbon dioxide, but don’t over water them, otherwise they may develop mould.

Our concern for the environment
Bona have great concern for the ones working with our solutions, living and enjoying them, and the environment affected by our actions and products, today and tomorrow.

We strive to continuously launch better products with less environmental impact. This has led to breakthrough innovations from waterborne finishes in the 1970s to dust-free sanding in the 2000s. Today, we are proud to be able to offer a full range of environmentally sound products for sanding, finishing, fastening, maintaining and cleaning a wooden floor – throughout its lifetime.

Bona water-based finishes are very low on VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds). Levels of volatile organic compounds in the air have health and environmental effects. That means that Bona´s products are better for your family, your pets, and your indoor environment. Our Swedish water-based technologies are the key to bringing back the beauty and elegance of your wood floors, while making them truly strong and durable.

Dust from sanding machines gets everywhere. In your clothes, your kitchen cabinets, your children’s hair! Bona’s Dust Containment System gets rid of almost all dust. Actually it removes up to 99.8% of the dust in the air compared to traditional sanding processes. Our Bona Contractors offer dust-free floor sanding, and you won’t have to cover anything up. Or take anything down. Or clean everything from top to bottom after they’ve done their job. And the air coming out of the sanding machine is cleaner than when it went in, thanks to our HEPA air filters.

Take care of the great indoors
Did you know that indoor air can be more polluted than outdoor air? And that you spend more time indoors than outdoors. GREENGUARD Certifications serve to reduce your exposure to chemicals and to improve your indoor quality. That’s why Bona´s products are GREENGUARD certified.

Varnished Wood Floors
Regular cleaning and floor care is the best way to keep your varnished wood floors looking fresh and beautiful. Follow our recommendations to get a wood floor you can enjoy for a long time to come.

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.

Cleaning
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.

Maintaining
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.

Oiled Wood Floors
Regular cleaning and floor care is the best way to keep your oiled wood floors looking fresh and beautiful. Follow our recommendations to get a wood floor you can enjoy for a long time to come.

About wood oil

Treatment with wood oil is very popular as it brings out the same beautiful look that many exotic wood species have. Wood floors treated with oil bring out the wood’s natural character and warmth. Wood oil doesn’t give any direct protection against wear but helps to repel water. It’s a good idea to think about which rooms are suitable for oiled wood floors.

It can be difficult to see and feel the difference between an oiled wood floor and a waxed wood floor. A waxed wood floor is softer and a little more slippery than oiled wood floors.

Cleaning
Things to think about when you clean your oiled wood floor:
Protecting your oiled floors is simple. By routinely cleaning, you remove dust and dirt before they scratch and dull the surface, or wear away the floor.

Always keep water to a minimum when cleaning your oiled wood floors. If you spill (food or drinks), wipe up immediately to prevent any permanent damage or staining.

Sweep or vacuum your oiled 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 Cleaner For Oiled Floors. Just spray and wipe!

Maintaining
Things to think about when you maintain your oiled wood floor:
Use a special oil product for maintaining and protecting your oiled floors such as Bona’s specially formulated Refresher for Oiled floors to be sure you keep your floors looking great.

If you have laid an oiled floor in an area where there is a high risk of spilling water, like in a kitchen, apply Bona Oil Refresher to add a layer of protection and increase the life of your new floors.

Waxed Wood Floors

About floor wax

Treatment with floor wax protects against wear and tear and gives the same look and warmth provided by wood oil. The waxed surface makes the wood floor more resistant to chemicals and wear than an oiled floor. It can be difficult to see and feel the difference between a waxed and an oiled floor. Often a waxed wood feels softer and a little more slippery than an oiled wood floor.
