Regular cleaning is the key to keeping your wooden floor looking attractive for years to come. Cleaning wooden floors used to be a chore.

The traditional way is to use a mop and a bucket with a general household cleaner mixed with water, but this common practice increases the risk of water damage and is also a lot of hard work.

FloorworX partners with Bona – experts in wooden floor care since 1919 – to bring South Africa the best, yet affordable, solutions in hardwood floor care.

Both companies appreciate the fact that life today is fast-paced and busy – cleaning floors is definitely not the main focus of every day – yet we all enjoy clean, attractive floors in our homes and businesses.

With this in mind, the specialists at Bona developed the Bona Spray Mop, which optimises floor care efforts and cuts cleaning time considerably – simply spray the floor and wipe it clean in one easy motion.

Because wood is different from other flooring materials it requires special cleaning and maintenance products to retain its beauty. Bona has the complete answer: the Bona floor care range, based on Bona’s 90+ years’ experience in taking care of wooden floors.

Bona Wood Floor Cleaner can be used on laminate flooring as well. Although the Bona range of wood cleaners is gentle enough, it is always recommended that a cleaner that is specifically designed for the surface that needs to be cleaned is used. Bona Floor Cleaner is specifically designed for stone, tile and laminate surfaces.

Ergonomic and simple to use, the Spray Mop is quick to assemble and refill with the specially developed refillable cleaner cartridge. The rotating head enables you to clean difficult areas that traditional mops are not able to reach.

The Bona Spray Mop makes cleaning of wooden floors easy and fun. No longer is there a need to fill up a big bucket of water to clean your floors effectively.

Bona Wood Floor Cleaner protects and cares for your wooden floor. It removes stains, dirt and grime without leaving any streaks. The spray-and-wipe method ensures that excessive amounts of water, that could damage the floor, are avoided.

Using the Bona Spray Mop with the range of Bona Cleaners offers numerous advantages including being specially developed for wooden floors; of ergonomic design; and refillable with a handy cartridge.

It also allows for easy cleaning without residues or marks, using an environmentally sound, pH-neutral cleaner. Its rotating head is ideal for ultimate reach in difficult areas, and it is fitted with a washable microfibre cleaning pad.

If streaking appears on the floor, it means your cleaning pad is filled with dirt. Just rinse it out with water, wring it out well leaving it just damp, and put it back on your mop. If your floor is very dirty you may not be able to clean the entire room before the pad needs rinsing.

Apart from daily cleaning, hardwood floors can be sanded and re-sealed – usually after a number of years. If your hardwood floor requires this kind of maintenance, a Bona-Certified Craftsman is the answer.

Professional service and trained staff – with the international Bona stamp of approval – will ensure your hardwood floor is treated with the care it requires.

Some simple tips from Bona on how to keep your wood floor looking attractive for years to come:

  • Don’t clean wooden floors with a wet mop.
  • Too much water can cause the floor to swell, warp or turn grey.
  • Don’t use wax, soap or other household cleaners on wooden floors coated with finish. They can dull the floor’s finish.
  • Don’t let sand, dirt or grit build up. They can act like sandpaper: abrading and dulling your floor finish.
  • Vacuum or sweep your floors regularly. Once every week is recommended.
  • Remove spills promptly using your Bona Mop and Bona Wood Floor Cleaner.
  • Use entrance systems / exterior doormats to trap sand and grit.
  • Use rugs in high-traffic pathways, at the ends of stairs and near doorways. Avoid rubber-backed or non-ventilated rugs.
  • Use protective pads or caps on furniture.
  • Trim your pet’s claws. Proper claw trimming helps avoid scratches and gouges.
