FAQ

Q. What is Minwax® Hardwood Floor Reviver

Stronger and more durable than polish, Reviver is a topcoat that restores shine and provides a layer of protection to any unwaxed, polyurethane-finished floor. Reviver quickly and easily renews the beauty of hardwood floors that are dull, scratched, scuffed or showing signs of wear.

Q. How can I tell if my floor has wax on it?

Apply a few drops of water to the floor. Wait 10 minutes. If the wetted area turns white, the floor may have a wax coating. Do not proceed with the application of Reviver.

Q. Can Reviver be used on pre-finished hardwood floors?

No. Reviver will not adhere to pre-finished flooring. If you are unsure if your floor is pre-finished, test Reviver on an inconspicuous area.

Q. Can Reviver be used on floors that are in very poor condition?

No. Badly damaged floors or floors that have large areas where the finish is worn away will require a complete refinishing.

Q. How do I prepare the floor before I apply Reviver?

There is no sanding or special preparation required. Simply sweep or vacuum the floor to remove all loose dirt. Then, wash the floor with a mild oil-free cleaner such as Minwax® Hardwood Floor Cleaner and allow to dry.

Q. Does Reviver need to be mixed with water?

No. Reviver is premixed and ready to use.

Q. How do I apply Reviver?

Squirt Reviver lightly in an "S" pattern directly onto the floor working one area at a time. Then spread the Reviver with a painter's pad in the direction of the grain and let dry.

Q. Will Reviver change the colour of my floor?

No. Reviver is non-ambering. It dries quickly to a crystal clear finish.

Q. How often can I use Reviver?

Reviver can be reapplied every 3-6 months as needed.

Q. Is Reviver an oil- or water-based product?

Reviver is water-based. It is low odour, dries quickly and application tools can be cleaned with soap and water.

Directions

PREPARE THE FLOOR:

  • Sweep or vacuum the floor to remove all loose dirt
  • Wash the floor with a mild oil-free cleaner such as Minwax® Hardwood Floor Cleaner
  • Allow to dry completely
  • Test Minwax® Hardwood Floor Reviver on a small inconspicuous area of the floor such as inside a closet to ensure adhesion and compatibility. Wax and other ingredients in some floor polishes may cause Reviver to bead up or prevent it from adhering to the floor

Note: Minwax® Hardwood Floor Reviver is not recommended for use over unfinished, newly finished, waxed or oiled floors. To test for wax, apply a few drops of water to the floor. Wait 10 minutes. If the wetted area turns white, the floor may have a wax coating. Reviver is not designed for use on floors that are in very poor condition. Badly damaged floors or floors that have large areas where the finish is worn away will require a complete refinishing.

APPLY THE COATING:

  • Rock the bottle several times before opening the cap. Do not shake.
  • Squirt Minwax® Hardwood Floor Reviver lightly in an "S" pattern directly onto the floor in a 3 x 3 foot area using a damp painter's pad or synthetic applicator attached to a long handle, spread Reviver across the floor.
  • Work in the direction of the grain using a back-and-forth motion. Keep working in small sections until the entire floor is coated. For best results, apply a thin, even coat. Keep airborne dust to a minimum while the floor is wet.

ALLOW THE COATING TO DRY:

  • Let the finish dry at least two hours before walking lightly on the floor. Do not walk on the floor if the surface is wet or tacky. Avoid heavy traffic and do not replace furniture or rugs for 24 hours after application. When replacing furniture do not slide.

Hardwood Floor Reviver can be reapplied as needed (usually about every 6 months) to keep your floor looking beautiful.

CLEAN-UP: Application tools can be easily cleaned with soap and water.
