What should you not put on a hardwood floor?

It is best to avoid putting any objects on a hardwood floor that can cause scratches and dents, such as: furniture (with sharp, metal legs or feet), stiletto heels, pet claws, sharp objects, and anything with wheels (such as a vacuum, chair, or cart).

Additionally, never use any product that contains wax, oil, or silicone, as these will damage the floor’s finish and make it susceptible to cracking. Avoid also using any ammonia-based cleaners; instead, opt for cleaner specifically formulated for hardwood floors.

One of the most important things to keep in mind is to never drag objects across the floor; always pick them up and carry them. Finally, do not use a wet mop on the hardwood, as the excess moisture can cause damage over time.

How do you get rid of Bona buildup?

To get rid of Bona buildup, you can clean the floor using a mixture of white distilled vinegar and water. Start by mixing ¼ cup of white distilled vinegar into one gallon of warm water. Then, use a microfiber mop or cloth to gently scrub the floor to remove the buildup.

Be sure to pay special attention to areas where the Bona buildup appears to be the thickest. Be careful not to use too much force as this may scratch the floor. Once you’ve finished scrubbing the floor, use a clean mop or cloth to rinse the floor with warm water.

For stubborn buildup, you may need to repeat the cleaning process several times or leave the cleaning solution on the floor for 10-15 minutes before scrubbing. Once you’ve finished the cleaning process, allow the floor to air dry before reapplying the Bona floor finish.

How often should you use Bona Hardwood Floor cleaner?

Additionally, it may be necessary to use Bona Hardwood Floor Cleaner more often in high traffic areas or in areas that are exposed to moisture.

To get the best results, always read and follow the instructions on the Bona Hardwood Floor Cleaner packaging.

Can I put floor cleaner in my robot mop?

No, you should not put floor cleaner in your robot mop. Robot mops are designed to be used with water and may not be adequately equipped to handle chemicals or liquid detergents. Additionally, using floor cleaner or other detergents in your robot mop could harm the moving parts, cause excess sudsing, or damage the electric motor.

It’s always best to read the instructions supplied with your robot mop before using any additional products. Furthermore, if the instructions do not explicitly support using floor cleaner, it’s best to avoid using any liquid cleaner entirely.

What do you fill Braava jets with?

Braava jets use a pre-filled, disposable cleaning pad that does not need to be filled with any additional solution. The Jet Dual-Mode Virtual Wall feature creates an invisible barrier that helps direct the robot to clean specific spaces with the cleaning pad.

The pads, which can be found in the Braava jet North Star Bundle, can be used with either wet or dry cleaning modes, making them ideal for a variety of cleaning tasks, including everyday dirt and grime, as well as sticky spots and stains.

When it is time to dispose of them, you can simply shake off the dirt and mess and toss in the trash.

How do you wash Braava jet m6 washable pads?

Washing Braava jet m6 washable pads is easy. First, remove the washable pad from the robot cleaner and shake off any excess dirt and debris. Next, place the pad in a washing machine with cold water and a mild detergent.

Do not use chlorine bleach or fabric softeners. Once the wash cycle is complete, dry the pad according to instructions. You may choose to lay it flat on a towel, or tumble dry on low heat. Do not iron or use high heat, as this damages the fibers.

If your pad is still damp, air-dry it until completely dry before using. Make sure there are no large clumps of debris on the pad before reattaching it to the robot cleaner.
