  • Q:

    we just purchased flooring for our home. what is the best way to
    clean the hardwood flooring?

    Asked on 3/25/2016 by Elizabeth from New Hampshire

    1 answer



      For general cleaning a swiffer type system works best. Not one that sprays the floor however. Lightly damp is fine but never soak or flood mop your floor. Do not use steam mops. Have a no shoes policy as much as possible. Use felt pads on all furniture. Sweep often.

      Bellawood Cleaner works very well (use as directed) once a month or as needed.

      In addition, Bona Kemi makes a decent hardwood flooring cleaner.

      Do not use oil-type cleaner or wax of any kind.

      Due to the excessive moisture present in a full bath we cannot recommend any of our solid natural flooring or laminate products for this application, I would suggest one of our engineered or vinyl Tranquility products. We have a 2mm peel and stick and now a 4 and 5mm click together products that can go in full bath areas or where moisture is a concern. Thank you for your inquiry.

      Yes. The limited residential warranty is valid from the date of purchase of the flooring up to the number of years indicated on your invoice and five (5) years for commercial foot traffic. Proper care would be paramount to the longevity of the flooring.

      Unfortunately this stain is not available in a can for retail sale. I would recommend bringing a scrap piece of the flooring (and a piece of the wood transition you will be staining) to a paint store and they should be able to match the stain for you. Thank you for your inquiry.

    • Staff Reviewer


      1st) Measure the rooms Length x width
      (12’x10’)= 120’ sq ft area
      2nd) Add *waste percentage to allow for cutting and board selection
      (120’sqft area + *10% waste) or (120’x10%) = an additional 12 sq ft, for a total of 132sq ft.
      3rd) Next round up the total to nearest full box.

  • Q:

    1) Can this wood be buffed and recoated with polyurethane?
    2) Can this wood be sanded down completely and refinished or will it give refinishers trouble?
    Asked on 7/27/2013 by John Doe from PA

    1 answer



      Prefinished flooring can be refinished but not buffed.

      Typical Example of sanding/finishing method:
      You may only need to screen your finish for re-coat or use "Bona Prep" .

      Use these tips to sand aluminum-oxide-finished wood floors

      For the contractor, the beauty of prefinished hardwood flooring is in the simplicity of installation, with fewer steps on the job site. The hardship of prefinished hardwood is that it will eventually wear, and refinishing it can seem like an overwhelming challenge.

      Manufacturers of prefinished flooring continue to make aluminum-oxide finishes harder and harder in order to increase the floor's life. As a result, sanding an aluminum-oxide prefinished floor down the road is one of the hottest issues in our industry today.

      It is a puzzle that has contractors and distributors scratching their heads. Some contractors have lost money on jobs when they didn't realize before the job started that the floor was aluminum oxide. Others lose money by choosing to not take on jobs resanding aluminum-oxide-coated wood floors.

      Just as finish technology has advanced significantly over the past 10 years, so too has abrasive technology. It's critical for contractors and distributors to keep up. As with any puzzle, the more information you have, the easier it is to solve. You want to work smarter, not harder.
      Finish Facts

      First, you must understand the finish. It does have aluminum oxide in it; however, that additive alone is not what makes it so hard; it is the UV curing process used in the mills that really creates the hardness.

      When finish is applied to prefinished flooring during the manufacturing process, it is done in the most controlled setting possible—as opposed to the conditions on a job site. The contractor can never fully create the ideal curing conditions found in a mill, so there is a large difference in hardness.

      Know Your Abrasives

      First, be aware that aluminum oxide in powder form is very dangerous to breathe, so it is essential that crews use proper respirators when sanding an aluminum-oxide floor.

      When trying to sand that finish, you need to select the right abrasive grain type and grit size. Know what is in the abrasives, because not all abrasives are made the same.

      There are four types of abrasive grains commonly used in the wood flooring industry. Only two of them are useful in sanding aluminum-oxide finishes: silicon carbide and ceramic grain.

      With silicon carbide abrasives, the grain macro-fractures, meaning that before the grain can dull, it breaks into smaller pieces that essentially resharpen the abrasive.

      So, silicon carbide abrasives stay sharp until they die, but they die relatively quickly. That makes silicon carbide the least expensive option per belt price, but product life is shorter.

      With ceramic grain abrasives, the grain micro-fractures, meaning that it breaks down in much smaller razor-like pieces more times before the abrasive dulls. Although the cost per ceramic belt is in the neighborhood of 50 percent higher than that of most silicon carbide, it usually provides two to four times the performance. Performance level depends on the ratio of ceramic grain used, so be sure to ask your distributor or manufacturer what is in each product: 100 percent and 15 percent ceramic grain are not equal.

      When choosing the abrasive, it is important to separate price and cost. The "price" per belt will be higher on the ceramic, but the "cost" of the total job (product consumed and time/labor) will be significantly lower.

      Choose the Right Grit

      The final piece of the puzzle is grit selection. A common misconception when dealing with aluminum-oxide floors is to start with the roughest grit you can find. Believe it or not, just because an abrasive feels more aggressive does not mean it is.

      When trying to abrade very hard materials, the opposite approach is needed. Think of it this way: take a big block of ice and try to smash it with a large mallet. What happens? More often than not, the mallet bounces off and the ice remains relatively unaltered. Now take that same block of ice and chisel at it with an ice pick. The pick penetrates the ice, no problem.

      When sanding aluminum-oxide finishes, the same concept applies. Rather than start with the most aggressive grit you can find (the large mallet), start with something finer, like an 80 grit (the ice pick). The finer belt will break up the finish, and after that, you can move to the rougher grit to get the floor flat and take it from there.

      1. Load a drum sander with 80-grit sandpaper. Sand the floor by running the drum sander back and forth at a 45-degree angle from the direction of the floorboards, to grind the edges of the boards even with one another. Do the whole floor.

      2. Re-load the sander with 120-grit sandpaper, and sand it in the direction of the floorboards to smooth out the surface. Thoroughly clean up the dust.

      3. Starting at one corner, (if using stain) brush on your wood stain, covering four or five square feet. Let the stain sit on the wood for a minute, then wipe up the excess stain with your cotton rags. Repeat section by section until the floor is completely stained. Let it dry overnight.

      4. Pour a line of floor gloss across the floor boards near one wall, making the line about as long as your gloss applicator is wide. Use the applicator to slowly pull the gloss across the floor, avoiding the creation of bubbles. Repeat and continue pouring and pulling until the whole floor is glossed. Let it dry overnight.

      5. Use a 220-grit sandpaper to lightly sand the whole floor by hand. Sand it just enough to take the shine off of the gloss. Re-apply a second gloss layer in the same manner as the first. Let it dry, sand it, and apply a third layer. Let it dry completely before using the floor.
