Refresh, revitalize and protect your polyurethane-coated hardwood floors with this 32-ounce bottle of Bona Hardwood Floor Polish (High Gloss). The quick-drying, eco-friendly formula is designed to restore your floor's beauty and luster while adding a layer of protection to help it be more resistant to surface scratches, scuffs and nicks. The wood floor polish features a durable, urethane acrylic blend that fills in microscratches and immediately evens out the appearance of damaged flooring. This high-gloss floor polish may be reapplied as frequently as every two to three months, if needed, without any waxy buildup or damage to the surface of the floors. The wood floor polish is specifically formulated for wood floors, including factory prefinished floors. Coverage: 500 square feet per 32-ounce container.
Don't coat a floor with Bona Hardwood Floor Refresher or any polyurethane after applying the polish because it creates a hazy, streaky appearance.
Polishing Instructions: Clean the floor with Bona Hardwood Floor Cleaner according to the label directions, allow time to dry then dust the floor with the Bona Microfiber Dusting Pad affixed to the Bona mop. The Bona Dust Pad can be purchased separately or with the Bona Mop and Dust Kit and buy an additional mop cleaning pad for applying floor polish. Have all supplies on hand before work begins and calculate square footage of the floor being polished to ensure adequate amount of flooring finish is ready for use.
Mix the Bona Hardwood Floor Polish by gently turning the closed bottle back and forth for several minutes. Do NOT shake briskly.
With the mop ready, squeeze some Bona polish onto the floor in a small area. Begin to spread the polish with the prepared mop pad, always with the grain of the wood, being certain to keep the pad wet with polish. Continue using the wood floor polish until the entire area of hardwood flooring has been covered in an even, smooth coat of polish. Don't walk in the wet polish or footprints will be visible.
If streaks are noticeable during application, it's likely that the coat being applied is too thin. Work back over the area before it has time to dry. For a glossier floor, a second coat of polish may be applied after the first coat has a minimum of two hours of drying time as dictated by ambient conditions. When the job is complete, rinse pad with water and hang it to dry. The pad is reusable for future finish applications.
