Faber Wax Remover | How To Use It
You need to understand the way floor strippers work. A floor stripper is a slow reacting chemical that will emulsify old sealers and waxes. The product needs time to react and the surface has to be pre-soaked. The new Faber Wax Remover is a highly concentrated floor stripper so it requires dilution before use. The dilution rate can be increased or decreased accordingly with the job requirements. If the surface looks in poor condition, then you can also add some Faber Solvent Stripper or Faber Alkaline Cleaner to the mixture. Warm water is better than cold water. Apply the mixture to the floor area and do not touch it for 10-15 minutes. In this time the wax remover reacts and softens up the old sealer / wax. Scrub the whole floor with some kind of agitator (deck scrubber, floor pad, scourer, etc). Extract the waste and assess the floor. If the surface looks patchy and if it still has old sealers on it, repeat the operation. Some old terracotta floors might require 2-5 stripping operations before the surface is sealant free. You have not done anything wrong, but the wax stripper can only burn down / emulsify up to 3 coats of wax at once. Some old floors might have 20 layers of wax on them.
You are dealing with highly active chemicals so you need to pay attention to details. Do not apply the product to any areas that you don't want stripped and be careful of leaks and drips from mops & buckets. A drop of wax remover on a polished marble floor can create a patch on that floor. Wear gloves, wear eye protection and work in well ventilated areas. Work in small areas and do some sample testing before stripping the whole floor.
