How to Clean Hardwood Floors

Bona Cleaner

I hear people talk about using vinegar to clean their hardwood floors. It is a great inexpensive, eco-friendly cleaner for tile floors or other surfaces but not for hardwood. Vinegar is acidic and can cause discoloration and/or break down the finish.  Stick to products that are recommended by the manufacturer such as Bona Hardwood Floor Cleaner, a Greenguard Certified Product. It is easy to use and will help protect the finish without leaving a dulling residue. For a light cleaning I just spray a little bit of the cleaner on a mop head, for more in depth cleaning just spray the floor and wipe up with a mop. It’s easy and painless. Just the way I like it!

Before you shop for flooring we would like to offer some suggestions to ease your shopping experience.

Put together a bag or folder and include all or some of the following items:

• Swatches of fabric (or a pillow) from your sofa, curtains or bed linens

• A sample of your desired or existing paint color

• A sample of your kitchen counter top and/or cabinets

• Colors and/or flooring from an ajoining room

• Pictures of flooring that you’ve seen in a magazine, online or friends or family member’s home

• Room dimensions, including closets, hallways, and stairs (incude width and number of stairs) to assist us in providing you with an estimate for the flooring you are considering

Keep the entire bag or folder in your car for your spur of the moment shopping opportunity!
