Question:

What is the difference between the Bona Hardwood Floor Refresher and the Bona Polishes?

Answer:

Bona Hardwood Floor Refresher is a 100% urethane coating designed to refresh older more worn floors with a durable gloss shine. The Refresher may also be used to fill in minor scratches and to even out the sheen of a floor. Refresher is recoatable with polyurethane finishes. Use every 4-6 months to keep floors looking their best. When using the Refresher, the entire floor must be coated with every application. The Refresher will put a semi-gloss on the floor.

Bona Floor Polishes are designed for any floor, old or new. Their urethane-acrylic blend evens out the floor's appearance and provides a durable wear layer. 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. The Bona Polishes come in both a High Gloss and Low Gloss. The High Gloss Polish is very similar to the sheen of the Refresher and the Low Gloss Polish will put a matte or satin sheen on your floor.
