Fiddes Floor Wax can be applied over most pre-finished floors and finishes including water stains, solvent stains, oils, french polishes and varnishes. It can also be applied to untreated floors or bare wood.

Ensure that all surfaces to be treated are clean, dry before applying Fiddes Floor Wax.

Pre-finished wooden floors

  1. Clean wooden floors with Fiddes Floor Surface Cleaner
  2. Allow the floor to fully dry before applying Fiddes Floor Wax

Bare wood flooring

  1. Bare wood floors should be sanded with a 120-150 grit abrasive
  2. Remove all traces of sanding dust with a vacuum

Always do a test area before starting any project to check suitability and compatibility. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on the tin at all times.

  1. Apply Fiddes Floor Wax sparingly, working on one manageable area at a time. Large floor areas can be applied with a Bona Floor Mop. For smaller areas, a Stockinette Cloth may be used.
  2. The minimum recommendation on bare floors is 2-3 coats, or 1-2 coats for pre-finished floors, although any number of additional coats can be applied if necessary.
  3. To achieve a deep lustre, buff the freshly applied wood floor polish with a stockinette cloth or polishing machine once dried. There are also brushes available for buffing which can be attached to an electric drill to save time and make the process of polishing floors much easier.

Regular Cleaning

For day to day cleaning, surfaces treated with Fiddes Floor Wax can be dry wiped, swept or vacuumed.

Deep Cleaning

To clean surface scuffs, marks and stains, use Fiddes Floor Surface Cleaner and a slightly damp (not wet) microfibre cloth or mop.

Maintenance

It is normal to re-wax wooden floor surfaces every 12-18 months, although many people re-wax more often than this, especially in high traffic areas. Additional coats will offer an improved patina.

Repair

Patches of wear in high traffic areas can be easily patch repaired by simply re-applying some floor wax to the worn, tired looking area.

Kind of what I was looking for by Chris Doyle

I wanted to add a bit of waterproofing to a parquet floor that has been neglected for about 10 years. This product was easy to apply (albeit on hands and knees for a couple of hours) and I applied 3 coats. Doesn't seem to have made a huge visible difference, just hope it's added the protection I was looking for.

Quick, easy, value for money by Kate Hallett

I bought this after reading a review here. I also have an ancient parquet floor and having used a particular product for some 20 years, I was disappointed to find it has been withdrawn from the market. I needn't have worried. The Fiddes product was easier to apply, dried quicker and was easy to polish. I've used it on my previously bees waxed parquet floor, and on my oiled floors in other areas. I put it on with a mop and shone it with my electric polisher. All floors have come up beautifully and the product was much easier to use with less of it.

Does the job by John Metcalfe

Bought this product previously 2lt which came in a plastic bottle. Lasted ages so bought 1 litres this purchase. Same product but this time came in a round tin which is more difficult to handle. Please bring back the plastic pourable container

First time use by Nola O'Neill

Really difficult to buff up. I was left with white sheen over floor and had to use scrubbing brush with soft nylon brissels to rub it in - advise to use professional machine to buff.

Good finish, easy to apply by Will Davenport

Applied by machine and it finishes well, easy to get a good shine, restored a couple of patches where water damage and hard wear had damaged the floor. Pricey, but worth it.

A note from us...

Hello,

Thank you for your feedback, it is fair to say that the build up of this product in crevis's or in the grain can cause the appearance of white residue. A course brush such as the Manns Coarse Buffing Brush will help to prevent and remove this build up during application.

Definately not non slip by Stuart Hicks

Easy to apply and shine up. Bought as non slip however, is like an ice rink in a bottle. Floor looks better as product seems to bring out the grain. Maybe more layers will help only time will tell.

A note from us...

Hello Mr Hicks,

The Fiddes Floor Wax does give a really beautiful finish to wood, but on floors can be quite slippery. The more you wear socks on it the smoother it will get as the socks are effectively buffing the surface of the floor and the wax. Please let me know if you have any questions

Kind regards Sam.

Produced the result I was looking for by Terry Edgar

Its pleasant to work with and does not fill the house with fumes.On my ash floor which I had sanded to bare wood it took four coats and if I had the time and energy I would have given it a fifth.My intention is to do a regular top up every six months or so but I am full of good intentions.The coverage calculator said I would need 2.9 litres and by the time I had the fourth coat on I had used just under 3 litres so it was exactly right. I intend to buy an electric buff as used by car refinishers ( Lidls have them for modest money but unfortunately not just when I needed one). Finished result is a beautiful rich silky sheen which is so much nicer then the factory finish gloss that was on it. It looks much more suitable in a period house.The finish is not really slippy and seems to be standing up to usage fine but its only six weeks since it was done.

Great product brought up grain with a natural look by Geoff Schofield

Very easy to use and dry in a few minutes put on 3 coates and buffed up with a bonnet on my drill. Standing up to the dogs chaseing down the corridor up to now have 1/2 bottle left so will be able to recoat when needed. Far easier than waiting 8 hours for varish to dry.
