Liquid floor wax can be used on many floor types including hardwood and softwood flooring where it enhances the grain and natural colour of the wood. Will revive old or tired looking floors.
Our Liquid wax floor polish can be applied over most pre-finished floor and finishes including water stains, solvent stains, oils, french polishes and varnishes or it can be applied onto untreated floors or bare wood. Liquid floor polishes and are also suitable for awkward interior wood such as stair spindles, chairs, etc.
Prior to the application of the floor wax, it's important to ensure that all surfaces are dry, clean and free of dust and dirt.
Application of Floor Wax
Apply the liquid floor polish sparingly, working on a manageable area at a time. 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. 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.
Large floor areas can be applied with a Bona Floor Mop or use Stockinette Cloth for smaller areas.
Store Fiddes Floor Wax away from all sources of heat sparks and exposed flames. Keep in dry, cool, ventilated storage. Keep containers tightly closed.
A thick coat of floor waxing polish will dry within 30 minutes, a thin coat of wood floor polish will dry in around 15 mins. These times may vary slightly depending on the environmental conditions and the type of wood being waxed.
Finishing the Floor with buffing
To achieve a deep lustre, buff the freshly applied wood floor polish with a stockinette cloth or polishing machine once dried. For buffing, there are also brushes available which can be attached to an electric drill which save on elbow grease and makes the process of polishing the liquid wax floor polish much easier!
