Are Bona Polishes safe for my floor?

Question:

Are Bona Polishes safe for my floor?

Answer:

Bona Hardwood Floor Polish is safe for your floor, as long as your floor and/or grout is sealed or finished, and unwaxed or unoiled. Surfaces should be sealed including the grout lines, unsealed stone or grout lines may cause staining.

Bona Floor Polishes’ urethane-acrylic blend evens out the floor's appearance, restores the shine and provides a durable wear layer for protection. Bona Polishes may also be used to fill in minor scratches and to even out the sheen of a floor. It is not recoatable with polyurethane finishes or Bona Refresher. Use every 2-4 months to keep floors looking their best.

We offer two types of polishes for hardwood floors and one for stone, tile and laminate floors. The Bona Hardwood Floor Polish comes in a High Gloss and Low Gloss and the Bona Stone, Tile and Laminate Floor Polish comes in a High Gloss. The High Gloss Hardwood Floor Polish has a slightly lower sheen than the Stone, Tile and Laminate Floor Polish and the Low Gloss Hardwood Floor Polish will put a matte or satin sheen on your floor.

Always refer to the instructions before using the Polish and be sure to do a test area before coating the entire floor.  It is important to apply the polish with our Microfiber Applicator Pad; it looks like lamb’s wool.
