Your varnished floor and staircase deserve special care. Caring for a varnished floor must be done according to a well-established method. Contrary to popular belief and grandma’s recipes, a vitrified hardwood floor should not be cleaned with products such as vinegar, wood oils, or household detergents. To keep your floor and steps in good condition, use a mild soap with a neutral pH. Ideally, you should use the same brand of cleaner as that of your varnish. If you’ve installed a prefinished floor, ask your retailer to provide you with the appropriate soap. For example, if your floors were varnished with a Bona water-based varnish, we recommend using the cleaner from the same brand to wash your wood floors.
The Bona cleaning kit for laminate floors is a necessary cleaning set that includes a Bona mop (four-piece handle with head), a machine-washable microfibre cleaning and dusting pad, and bottle of Bona cleaner. Ask L’Artisan du Plancher for more information about professional-grade hardwood maintenance. Bona products are available at Home Depot and several big box home renovation centres.
