Q: I spilled a bottle of bathroom cleaner on our engineered floors and it seems to have dulled it a lot. The shine is gone and you can notice a big difference from the rest of the floor.
Is there anything that I can use that will make it shine again without having to refinish the whole floor?
A: First, you should be cleaning the finish on your floors with an appropriate product, which cannot be purchased at your local hardware store. Flooring retailers will sell a suitable product, such as Bona Pacific floor cleaner. www.bonakemi.com. If the product you spilled has merely left a residue that is dulling the finish, this polyurethane cleaner should remove it. If the finish itself has been damaged, I would contact the manufacturer to see if they have a product specific to their floor which can be used.
