What is floor wax?

Floor wax is a great product if you are looking for your floors to be not only glossy but also resistant to water, scuffs and slippage. Floor wax contains ingredients like urethane, resins and polymer emulsions. When applied, floor wax will provide a thin but protective layer that hardens on the surface revealing a more durable finish but also a beautifully polished look that can stand up to most daily wear and tear. “Wax finish is an old-fashioned look for wood floors—the way contractors did it in the old days before the urethanes came out. Through the '40s, '50s and '60s, wax was very popular, and today, it's coming back. Many architects and designers have jumped on the bandwagon of waxed floors, especially because wax goes so well with the hand-scraped and distressed floors that are popular. About 30 percent of my jobs now are waxed floors. Another reason I like a waxed floor is that the homeowner can maintain it themselves. With a prefinished or job-site-finished urethane floor, the homeowner has to call a professional, but the waxed floor can be touched up with a white pad on one of those little rental buffers. And, while some people may disagree, I think a waxed floor is also a very durable floor,” says Daniel Boone of Wood Floor Business.

What is floor wax made of?

Floor wax is mostly made up of deionized water, polymer emulsions, modifiers, film formers and preservatives. The wax emulsions added to floor finishes are synthetic polyethylene or polypropylene waxes replacing natural waxes. Why replace the natural waxes? The synthetic waxes tend to offer an improved consistency in color, increased availability and greater overall performance.

Can you use floor wax on hardwood floors?

Yes. In fact, it is said to be easier to apply than paste wax. The one caveat: the finish may not last as long. If you do not own one, buy a brand new mop. Even if you have a mop and it looks clean, do not use it. Any dirt or debris from the mop will transfer to your floor hereby ruining the finish. If you prefer, you may instead use a soft, lint-free cloth or towel. If you have an electric floor polisher, use a clean pad. Dampen the item you are using in order to prevent the wax from soaking in. With a light hand, evenly apply the polish. Be sure to never use floor wax on no-wax floors. Never use floor wax on floors that were previously finished with urethane or on vinyl flooring. For best results, always follow the usage directions on the label.

How do you get wax build-up off laminate floors?

In order to remove wax buildup from laminate flooring you first need to soften the wax. Soft wax will be much easier to scrape. How can you soften wax? With heat. Use a hair dryer on the heat setting. Remove the remaining floor wax with a combination of two cups of white vinegar into one gallon of warm water in a bucket. Dip clean, white cloths or towels into the solution. Make sure the cloths are just damp and not sopping wet. Be sure to work in one direction and wipe the wax to remove it from the floor’s surface. Tip: Never use ammonia on laminate flooring.

Can you put floor wax on tile floors?

You can so long as the tile is unglazed otherwise the wax will not be absorbed. The result will be waxed grout lines that will be impossible to get clean. The reason homeowners would want to use wax on a tile floor is to give it a lasting shine. Your best bet for tile is to instead use a sealer rather than a wax. Always follow label instructions.

How do you apply wax to hardwood floors?

Start with a clean, unused mop. Dampen your brand new clean mop with water. Apply polish directly onto the mop and some directly onto the floor. Spread the polish evenly and try to avoid having any bubbles in the liquid. Allow it to fully dry. This may take several hours. After thoroughly dry, buff the floor with either a clean, dry towel, a terry cloth-covered sponge mop, or an electric polishing machine. Daniel Boone of Wood Floor Business says, “Whether you use paste wax or liquid wax is a matter of personal taste; there's a difference in the look of each. Paste wax goes on thicker and you get a faster build, but applying it takes longer. Liquid wax goes on quicker and smoother but also thinner. You can get a wide variety of colors depending on whether you use clear or amber shellac and natural or dark brown wax. You can also use universal tints that mix with denatured alcohol to affect the color. You can get dozens of sheens depending on the buffer technique and the material you use. For example, just a white pad will make the floor semi-gloss to shiny. A rougher steel wool like 1/0 will make the floor rougher, while the finer steel wool like 4/0 will make it shiny.” Since every product is not the same, be sure to always follow the usage instructions on the label.

How do you remove old floor wax?

You can either very simply and easily buy a product specifically made for that or you can play “chemist for the day” and try to make your own stripping solution. The solution to remove old floor wax is with white vinegar, cream of tartar and warm water along with some other tools. In a bucket of one gallon of warm water mix one cup of white vinegar with 1 cup of cream of tartar. Apply the solution to the floor with a mop and allow it to do its work. After a few minutes the wax should be a little soft. Grab a scrub brush and brush in a circular motion, rewetting the brush in the bucket of solution every so often. Use an ultra-fine steel wool pad to remove the wax before mopping the floor with another bucket of clean water to remove solution from the floor.

Will ammonia strip floor wax?

Yes, ammonia will remove wax from floors but before starting, open your windows and doors since the fumes will be strong and good ventilation is needed. Mix ¾ cup of ammonia with one cup of bleach-free laundry detergent in a one gallon bucket of warm water. Apply the solution with a mop to the floor and allow the solution to do its work. After a few minutes or so the wax should be a little softer. Brush with a scrub brush in a circular motion, rewetting the brush in the bucket of solution as needed. Remove the wax with an ultra-fine steel wool pad before mopping the floor with another bucket of clean water to remove the solution from the floor. Rinse the solution from floors with a bucket of clean water and a mop when finished stripping.
