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.
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.
For day to day cleaning, surfaces treated with Fiddes Floor Wax can be dry wiped, swept or vacuumed.
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.
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.
My favourite of the three floor waxes I have tried - better to apply than the thicker version Fiddes also improves and easier to shine than the other make I tried. Buffs well. Needs three coats, however. Also dries somewhat quicker than the other make but still not the 10 - 20 mins suggested and closer to an hour.
Economical and easy to use
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.
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an ancient parquet floor and having used a particular product for some 20 years, I was disappointed to find it has been withdrawn from the market.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.
Gives a beautiful hard wearing finish on old oak floorboards by far the best floor wax I've tried
Effective and leaves a nice, protective lustre.
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
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.
I love the wax for furniture i havent used the polish yet but im sure it will be great
Haven't actually had time to try it yet but reviews were good & it looked like a good traditional product
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.
Just be careful of the wax leaving white marks.
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.

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.
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.
Good value product, supplied quickly
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.
Easy to apply, gives a great finish. Also got good advice from Wood Finishes Direct
Do need to be careful not put it on to thick, more thin coats than less thick coats
First time I have used this product and I will be using it again. Nice finish and easy to apply and buff to a good finish.
