Are the walls looking dull and forlorn? Have the floors lost their sheen? Is the gloss of the worktops deteriorating? Then it’s time to get rid of that old wax treatment and have it replaced with a new one, to keep the surfaces looking neat and glamorous. The fact is that no surface care product is 100% invincible. It will eventually wear down, as a result of the daily wear and tear that it handles. Over time, that waxed surface becomes a pale shadow of its former self, and despite one implementing tough cleaning measures, they don’t reverse the state of affairs. When the moment comes to revitalise your installation, use the Faber Wax Remover to get a fresh start. 

Greasy dirt can also be frustrating. The gunk that strongly adheres to the surface, even when you keep scrubbing the area, needs powerful cleaning agents to counteract it. The Faber Wax Remover comes in handy here as well, providing the chemical action needed to break down such kinds of grime. Here is a look at how the formulation performs.

Clearing Away Stubborn Grime And Old Wax

This alkaline-based formulation provides thorough cleaning action, getting rid of the organic dirt that is clinging to the surface, greasy stains that are covering the installation, to the old wax treatments that need to be removed for new ones to be applied. It breaks down the existing wax treatment and exposes the underlying surface, setting the stage for the fresh layers to be applied. That way, you get to restore a clean and shiny look to your surfaces. With the new treatment, you will be able to set a firm barrier protecting the surface from damage, and keep it in its optimal condition for longer. 

Note that the success of the new treatment will depend on how well that surface is prepared. Having sections of the old wax on the target area will be an impediment, preventing the new layers from bonding well with the surface. The high effectiveness of the Faber Wax Remover enables you to ensure that the area being worked on will be ready for the new finish. 

With the Faber Wax Remover also being effective against bio residues, such as those from mould and algae, it proves itself to be an asset to cleaning programs. This spruces up the space, dealing firmly with the grime that was taking away the beauty of the affected surfaces. The effectiveness of the Faber Wax Remover makes it ideal for handling undesired residues after installation projects as well. However, if there has been grouting that has been carried out, give the grout at least 2 days to fully cure before treating the target surface with the product. 

The Wax Remover is a versatile formulation as well, suitable for a wide range of surfaces. These are the likes of granite, marble, limestone and terracotta, ceramics, cotto and cementina installations, all through to concrete and porcelain stoneware. It will deliver the cleaning action without putting the installation at risk. You can use the wax stripper for both indoor and outdoor surfaces. Being from Faber, you can rest assured that you’re getting a quality product. This is a trusted brand, with buyers across the different continents depending on it for their products. Professional installers setting up new floors, walls, countertops and even outdoor projects, cleaning crews tasked with meeting the needs of residential and commercial clients, to homeowners tackling the day-to-day cleaning in their households, there are products for the different kinds of situations. For a company that has been in the surface care industry since 1986, surviving and thriving for the decades that followed shows its commitment to delivering quality products. 

How To Use The Faber Wax Remover

There are two approaches taken when working with this formulation:

  1. Using the product by itself
  2. Double wax stripping (product used in combination with the Faber Solvent Stripper)

In both scenarios, you will need to start by first washing the surface to clear the dust and coarse dirt that is on the area. This kind of grime simply gets muddy during the cleaning, yet a broom or vacuum is enough to get rid of it, instead of the substances becoming a nuisance and increasing your workload. After this initial round of cleaning, allow the cleaning surface to dry before proceeding with the application. Let’s look at the different steps to take for each approach mentioned above:

Using the Faber Wax Remover Alone

  1. Dilute with clean water, using a 1:4 ratio (1 part product with 4 parts water)
  2. Apply the Wax Remover onto the surface using your preferred tool e.g., a cloth for countertops, mop for floors, or single disc machine for expansive surfaces.
  3. Allow 5-10 minutes of dwelling time. During this period, the product will break down the dirt, oily residue, or wax that is on the target area. While it can achieve this without any additional input from yourself, you can still continue rubbing it onto the surface, providing the mechanical action that boosts the efficiency of the process. 
  4. Remove the residue from the surface and use lots of water to rinse the area

After this, inspect the results. If any residue remains, the process can be repeated, following the same steps – only this time use a slightly less dilution. Normal traffic can be allowed back onto the area after the process is completed – no additional waiting time is necessary. 


Double Wax Stripping

  1. Start by pouring the Faber Solvent Stripper onto the target area. This product is used undiluted. 
  2. Give the product 5-10 minutes to act on the surface. 
  3. Apply the Faber Wax Remover directly onto the surface with the steps shown in the previous section. 
  • Note that between steps 2 and 3 you should not remove any of the product or residue from the previous area. 
  • Use a broom or single disc machine to work the Wax Remover onto the surface. 
  1. Clear away all the contents from the surfaces, and rinse the area. 

Any tools used can be cleaned with water after the process is completed.
