Hardwood Floor Cleaning for Pet Parents + Bona PowerPair Sweepstakes

I love, love, LOVE hardwood floors. When we were considering buying our current house, the one thing that really sealed the deal for me was seeing that there were hardwood floors under the disgusting carpet that was throughout the house. We were still a little hesitant at first because the previous owners obviously had a dog that wasn’t well house-trained and had left deposits on the carpets that in turn soaked through to damage the wood floors. It seriously looked bad. BUT, we found an amazing local floor refinisher who had those disgusting floors looking absolutely beautiful in just a few days.

Pets Hardwood Floor

Now that we have my beloved hardwood floors throughout the house, it’s time for ME to keep them clean. I’m lucky that all of our pets are well trained and don’t have “accidents” to damage the floors, but just the every day in and out of the house by the dog can lead to floors that get plenty dirty. It’s especially noticeable during these spring months when it is often wet outside and those dirty and damp wet paws sometimes make it in the house without being wiped off very well.

Bona Hardwood Floor Cleaner

That’s why I was particularly happy to learn about Bona PowerPlus Hardwood Floor Deep Cleaner and Deep Clean Pad. These two work together to make the ideal solution for fighting everyday grime and dirt on hardwood floors. This is Bona®’s most powerful cleaner yet and it has an oxygenated formula that loosens and removes heavy dirt build-up, providing a deep clean without the extra effort. I think the deep clean pad goes a long way in effectively cleaning too. It has both a PowerLoop technology (which feels like a soft version of a kitchen scrub sponge) combined with dual-zone microfiber, which is great for trapping dirt. Between the cleaner and the pad, things clean up easily and in a hurry. I’m all about the more clean/less effort cleaning methods!

  1. Bona products rock. They definitely work and I can personally attest to that.

  2. I used to have the most beautiful Sears catalog house. It was built in 1905 and had the most gorgeous oak floors. This would have been perfect to care for the floors.

  3. We have five cats and three of them are long haired. Between that and general things like muddy paw prints or spil water bowls, we need to try this to help take care of our floors.

  4. We could use something like this on our floors. We have a very dark wood in the second someone walks in with dust on their shoes it shows up. I need some kind of cleaner that will get it nice again.

  5. I need to get this for my floors and not because of pets, I have three filthy kids. I can where they make the most mess.

  6. There are 3 cats and 4 chinchillas i this house, so this could DEFINITELY make a huge difference to our floors. Thanks for introducing us to Bona!

  7. My parents could use this. They have pretty much taken guardianship of our 2 dogs and have wood floors in their bedroom. And of course, tour dogs think they own the place so they’ve taken over their bedroom, haha.

  8. Hardwood floors can be a pain to keep looking nice. This sounds like a great way to help keep them nice with pets in the house!

  9. We have hardwood floors and they can be difficult to keep clean, especially when it comes to collecting dust. I will be sure to check out this product line.

  10. I love hardwood floors! I think it’s easier to deal with pet hair on hardwood myself. Bona products sound perfect for keeping them gorgeous.

  11. I do not have indoor pets, but I can totally get that spring wet paw mark problem. I will pass this on to my sister. I am sure she will be happy to hear about it.

  12. We have wood floors in our house! This could really come in handy!

  13. My mom originally recommended Bona products to me. I love them! I can get them in huge quantities at my hardware store which is good with a family of five, plus a dog.

  14. Ann Bacciaglia says:

    I have wood floors but i find they need something different to clean them. They just do not shine like they used to. I will have to give Bona a try.

  15. gingermommyrants says:

    Bona products are amazing. This is a great sweepstakes. I will have to share this so my friends can enter.

  16. I haven’t tried the Bona products yet. I have wooden floors and 3 fur babies so I need something good to get things done. Will pick some up next time I’m at the market.

  17. We have tile floors, but my sister has hardwood and a ton of cats! Sharing this with her – I know she’s looking for tips to keep it cleaner!
