Why would installer have Bona Prep handy?

wijodyFebruary 25, 2011

OK I'm paranoid I guess.

Installers are putting in Teragren floating floor (that has quite a bad odor - see my other thread below). I notice a lot of smudges along the edges where the boards touch. A bottle of Bona Prep sitting there ... they said this has been the hardest floor they've ever installed - a LOT of pounding going on and even slight 'cracking' noises I've heard and cringed over when they put it together.

They have used no tapping block - just rubber mallet. No installation wedges.

Also they tracked some polyurethane sealant around from their caulk gun that left a puddle on the subfloor and then got on someone's shoes.

Does all this sound normal? And why would they be using Bona Prep on my new floor?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I have no idea why they would be using Bona Prep, unless they have discovered that it is an effective cleaner.

You should be able to get a good result...if not, then complain.
