Has your terracotta floor lost its original shine?
It's time for special maintenance! First of all, you must know whether your floor is treated, and if it is, with what kind of wax: liquid or solid? If the floor has been waxed, you must first wash it with a wax and grease remover.
Wax removing wash for terracotta floors
If your floor has been treated with solid wax, the right product is FILASOLV*, a wax removing solvent specially formulated to remove traditional solvent-based waxes from terracotta, marble and wood floors. It is also good for evening out floors which, due to incorrect or excessive application of solid wax, are dull or striated.
If, on the other hand, the floor has been treated with liquid wax, you should use FILAPS87, a stain remover and degreaser for terracotta, porcelain tiles, marble, unpolished stone and concrete.
Once you have taken the old wax off the floor, you can now restore the protective treatment with wax. Once again, you can choose whether to use a solid or liquid wax.
