Dull hardwood

patty_cakesDecember 21, 2013

My 6 yo wood floors are starting to look dull. They'll probably need refinishing in a few more years, but right now i'm looking for a way to brighten them up for the holidays. I use the Bona floor cleaner and am wondering if anyone has ever used the Bona hardwood refresher. If so, it isn't a product which causes a build up, is it? is there another product anyone has tried and had good results?TIA

I've had great luck with Minwax hardwood floor restorer and my floors are 1937 oak done over 20 yrs ago. I prefer the low gloss but there is a high gloss product.

Here you to, this product is amazing. I use it once a year on my Douglas fir floors in my lake house and they look shiny and new for a whole year. Read the reviews.

Here is a link that might be useful: floor finish

yayagal, I have tried that product. It's just too shiny for me. Depends on the sheen the OP wants.

Patty - our floors are 15 years old and do not need refinishing. Are you sure it is not some kind of build-up?

Thank you jays mom, yayagal, and Tina. I haven't done anything yet, but don't think I want a shiny surface as it seems to attract dust much quicker. I may use the refresher product since I already have it.

Tina, no build up as I've only use Bona cleaner. I know build up since I used to use a clear product on wood floors years ago and ended up with a real mess. The dullness is everyday wear and tear from myself, grandchildren, and 3 pets. Too much of a good thing can still have it's drawbacks. ;o)
