How to Protect Wood Floors - Maintenance Tips

Achieve a lifetime of protection with Bona products

A Lifetime of Protection

A strong maintenance routine is the key to the longevity and durability of your floors. Staying active with a daily maintenance routine is the first line of defense, but daily cleaning alone will not protect your floor's finish forever. A floor's finish will go through normal wear and tear over the years and will need attention. Reviving, restoring and refinishing your floors are great ways to increase the longevity of your floors and protect your investment. Each method is an effective way to go beyond regular cleaning.
