Slippery spots on recently installed wood floor

Q: I recently installed engineered hardwood floors in my kitchen. The floor has several slippery spots and I’m not sure how to eliminate these slippery spots. I am not sure what is causing it. What is the best way to clean the floor and eliminate the slippery spots?

A: Something has probably gotten on to the surface of the slippery boards.  A lot of wood floor and floor finish manufacturers make cleaners for floors finished with a hard top coat such as polyurethane.  Perhaps the place where you bought the flooring has a product or can recommend where to get something.  I think Bona Kemi was even marketing their cleaner to Home Depot.
