Why would installer have Bona Prep handy?

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?

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.
