How To Fix Dull Hardwood Floors
If your floors are only a few years old and you already see a definite dullness to them, the underlying issue may be how you are maintaining them. First, you need to think about a few things:
How do I clean my floors?
What am I cleaning with?
Addressing the first issue, how do you clean your floors? Do you dust or vacuum frequently? Do you use the same dusting pad throughout your home or do you switch them often? Pushing dust around will instantly make floors look dull. How about damp mopping? Do you rinse your mop frequently? Again, rinsing the pad often will release the dust/dirt from the pad and prevent streaking or hazing your floors.
Next, what are you cleaning with? Do you use concentrated cleaners, “smelly good” cleaners, vinegar or oil soaps? These cleaners are often loaded with surfactants that cling to the floor and leave dulling residue behind. Over the course of a few years, the floors never look clean.
So now you are wondering how to get back to that new floor look without sanding, refinishing or spending hours on your hands and knees scrubbing. Quick Shine has an entire line of floor care products dedicated to making cleaning easier. With a product for every need, Quick Shine can restore the color and beauty to your floors.
Start with a deep clean. Use Quick Shine Deep Cleaner to remove buildup, ground-in dirt and other residue as well as any previous waxes that may be on your floors.
Once your floors are clean and back to their original condition, simply maintain them on a weekly basis by dry dusting with this microfiber pad. Microfiber is positively charged acting like a magnet to attract negatively charged dust, so it doesn’t just pick up materials, it is able to effectively store them unlike disposable cloths that often just push dust around.
For heavier surface soil like paw prints or spills, simply dampen your microfiber mop and wipe clean using our Multi-Surface or Hardwood Cleaners. These cleaners are ready-to-use, are zero-residue and will not leave a dulling film behind as they are not loaded with surfactants. Not to mention, SAFER!
If your floors are less than new and have really taken a beating over the years, our Quick Shine Multi-Surface Floor Finish or Hardwood Floor Luster will provide a protective, rich shine filling in surface scratches and provide an even appearance for that new floor look. Simply Squirt. Spread. Done! Dull floors? No more!

I want to stain floor that is worn to bring color back and then use floor luster is that ok?
Once you stain the floors, allow the stain to fully cure 14+ days before applying our Hardwood Floor Luster to assure proper adhesion of our Finish.
Is Quick shine multi -surface floor finish safe to use on pergo flooring?
Yes, Quick Shine Floor Finish is pH neutral and safe to use on any sealed hard floor surface including Pergo.
When using the floor finish should I remove my kitchen table and chairs he m the room until the floor is dry or is it ok to move them out of the way and replace them once their bit of the floor is mopped?
You can move the table and chairs over. Once the Finish has been applied and completely dry, it is recommended to lift the furniture and place it in the proper location. Never scoot heavy furniture across the room to avoid any scuffing.
Having used this product for several years, I was extremely satisfied with this product. However I had to use a walker for 6 weeks and scratching occured. The actual floor is not scratched but the polish has scratched a lot. We tried just washing floor and reapplying. Scratches still show. How do I remove the product so I can start over?
We recommend removing the compromised shine with Quick Shine Deep Cleaner. Please reach out to customer service so we can further assist you at 800-255-1891.
