Daily cleaning is best carried out dry with a broom or vacuum cleaner. If you mop your floor, use BOEN Cleaner (ration: 25 ml for every 5 l water) and clean with a damp mop. For more stubborn dirt, increase the dosage (50 ml for every 5 l water).
Heavier dirt that is difficult to shift such as grease spots or heel marks can be removed with thorough cleaning. The ideal product for this is BOEN Remover (polish remover). After using this, treat the floor with BOEN Refresher.


BOEN Polish Matt was especially developed for the regular cleaning of lacquered hardwood wooden floors. It refreshes old and matt paint, protects it and gives it a silky matt shiny and dirt repellent surface. Before using it, your floor should be clean and free of polish, wax and dirt. Apply a thin, even layer of BOEN Polish Matt with a sponge or cloth and leave it to dry. Only then should you put the furniture and rugs back in place. BOEN Polish Matt is also good for spot cleaning.

How often should you use this product?

  • For floors subject to low stress, e.g. in bedrooms and living rooms: approx. once a year
  • For floors subject to medium stress, e.g. in corridors or offices with people coming and going: approx. twice a year depending on frequency of use.

Intensive cleaning and spot removal

  • Stubborn stains (wine, fruit, berries, juice, cream, non-alcoholic drinks, beer, coffee, tea) are best removed with household cleaner
  • Dirt such as shoe polish, heel rubber, tar, tarmac, oil, fat and chocolate can be removed with white spirit
  • Ink, lipstick, biro, printer ink, ink ribbons can be removed using spirit
  • Spots of blood are easiest removed with cold water.

Important note

For lacquered hardwood floors: when you see clear signs of wear and tear on hardwood floors under heavy use, we recommend that they are sanded and resealed in order to preserve the intact surface over the long term. Our tip: arrange regular inspection with your hardwood floor installer.

Commercial and high frequented areas

When floors are used in highly frequented areas such as in restaurants, on stairs, in department stores, entrance areas of hotels, weekly cleaning is advisable. If the floor is extremely worn, sanding and resealing is recommended.
