    Hello all.
    Was wondering if anyone else had floors like these and what is your method for cleaning/buffing them? I'm looking for an easier approach. They're extremely high gloss prefinished solid oak with beveled edges. I know what NOT to do no waxing no mopping no Bona crap ect. I don't trust any cleaners because most cleaners today are formulated for the type of flooring people are buying these days like, dullish satin finish engineered flooring. My floors are a vary different animal, they don't like cleaners. I was simply damping the microfiber mop and do a quick area then hurry and grab a dry mop and buff it real good. Problem is, that I'm busting my butt with this. Keeps them shining but still. If you have floors like mine what are you using and how?!? Thanks I appreciate any and all help

    Look for a product by Bona. A lot of flooring stores might have it in stock.

    Thanks but Bona is utter garbage. Cost me severe back and leg pain and 1000's of hrs getting my floors back to this level. Again, Bona is crap

    This is what "Bona" does to real hardwood gloss

    You should only need a dampened micro-fiber mop.

    So how do you really feel about Bona?
