How to Use Our Quick Shine® Deep Cleaner

Deep Cleaner to the rescue!  Many of you have asked if there are any tips or tricks to the Deep Cleaner process so you can reapply the Quick Shine® Floor Finish to get your floors back to that WOW factor.

Today, we are happy to share with you the recommended steps below to give you confidence in conquering your floors like superman!  The Quick Shine® Deep Clean Kit comes with a microfiber scrubber pad and a 16 oz. bottle of the Deep Cleaner.  The microfiber scrubber pad is absolutely amazing and highly recommended to use during this process!

The Quick Shine® Deep Cleaner was specifically developed to not only deep clean, but also to safely remove our finish from your floors.  Quick Shine® Deep Cleaner/Wax Remover will also remove other waxes and finishes without harming hardwood floors or their polyurethane seal or any other type of hard floor surface.  Below are 6 quick tips on how to use our Deep Cleaner:

  1. In a bucket, dilute the Deep Cleaner in HOT water as HOT water is more effective.
  2. Using a sponge mop or our Hardwood Floor Mop, apply to the floor surface. Do small sections (5’x5’) of the floor at a time in order to maintain a more manageable removal and clean-up.
  3. Allow the Deep Cleaner solution to remain on the floor for a few minutes. CAUTION:  Do not allow the solution to dry and re-adhere to the surface.  If solution appears to be drying, add a little warm water to keep the surface wet.
  4. The Quick Shine Floor Finish that you are removing should start to turn to a milky white film indicating the finish is being removed.
  5. After a few minutes, agitate with our microfiber scrubber pad. Aggressive agitation and elbow grease are typically required to remove ground-in dirt and multiple layers of the finish.
  6. Once you have removed the floor finish, rinse the area with clear, warm water and allow to dry. Then you can proceed to the next 5’x5’ area and repeat steps 1-6.

NOTE:  For heavy build-up, you may need to use a second treatment and/or you can also increase the dilution from 1 cup per gallon to 2-3 cups per gallon.  Deep Cleaner is concentrated, therefore it makes 3.5 gallons (at 1 cup per gallon), which should be enough for 500 square feet.

After completing this process, once your floors have completely dried you can now reapply a coat of our Quick Shine® Floor Finish or Quick Shine® Hardwood Floor Luster to bring your floors back to life giving them the shine they deserve!

We hope these simple steps have helped you with using the Deep Cleaner correctly and efficiently.  Now you can proudly wear that S on your chest and have triumph for your floors!

    I used the Quick Shine floor finish on no-wax ceramic tile. It looked fine at first, but now I see scratch lines in the finish as well as areas where the finish has worn off. How can I remove the remaining floor finish to see only the original factory finish lustre of the tile?

      Hi,

      We recommend using Quick Shine Deep Cleaner to safely remove our Finish and start fresh again. Simply dilute our Deep Cleaner with hot water and apply to the affected area. Allow solution to sit for 3-4 minutes and wipe away. Once that area is clean and dry, reapply a fresh new coat of Quick Shine Floor Finish to even out the appearance of the floor again. Quick Shine Deep Cleaner is only available online at this time at http://www.quickshine.net or http://www.walmart.com. For more information, please contact customer service at 800-255-1891.

    I use the quick multicolor finish on my terrazzo floor and love it, but the build up needs to be removed and redone. Is the cleaner ok on terrazzo?

    Q 1: I have a heavily soiled wood floor and when trying to scrape of some resin damaged the wood, i.e. took a few slithers off. Is it still safe to use your Quick Shine Deep Cleaner?
    Q 2: A small part of the floor (ouside edge) is a mix of soft and hard wood. Is it safe to use on soft wood as well? There may also be some damage to the soft wood, i.e. it’s not sealed all the way?

    Thanks,
    S

      Hi Silett,

      We recommend testing a small section of those worn areas to assure proper adhesion. Our Finish is water based and may absorb if there is no seal on the wood. It could take several coats to get an even appearance with the rest of the sealed floor surface. Quick Shine Deep Cleaner is also a water based remover so we recommend working in very small areas of the worn floor at a time. Please contact customer service at 800-255-1891.

        I need to remove the quick shine from my tile floor. Where can I purchase it? I purchased the Quick Shine at Wal Mart but they do not have the Deep Clean. I am 85 years old and have a lot of tile. Wow! What a job. Thank you

    Can you use quickshine removal on bamboo floors? Is it safe to use if I have a cat? Should I wear a mask when using it?

      Hi Patti,

      Yes, Quick Shine Deep Cleaner can safely remove our Finish from your bamboo floors. This solution becomes neutral when diluted and does not contain harsh fumes that require wearing a mask. We do recommend placing pets in a separate room while removing our Finish to avoid Finish from adhering to their fur. For more information, please contact customer service at 800-255-1891. We are always happy to help!

          Hola Maria,

          Sí, recomendamos eliminar Quick Shine Finish con Quick Shine Deep Cleaner. Este producto fue desarrollado específicamente para eliminar los acabados de polímeros y ceras sin dañar los pisos de madera dura u otros tipos de pisos de superficie dura como baldosas, vinilo, piedra, mármol y laminado.

          Simplemente diluya el limpiador profundo en agua CALIENTE y aplique sobre la superficie del piso, deje reposar durante unos minutos y agite. Haga pequeñas secciones del piso a la vez. Luego quite los escombros y la acumulación del piso con un enjuague con agua limpia. Para una gran acumulación, es posible que deba aumentar la dilución de 1 taza por galón a 3 tazas por galón. Deep Cleaner se concentra, por lo tanto, un 27 oz. la botella producirá aproximadamente 2 galones, lo que cubre aproximadamente 500 pies cuadrados y no dañará el sellador en los pisos de madera dura. Para obtener más información, comuníquese con el servicio al cliente al 800-255-1891. ¡Siempre estamos felices de ayudar!

      We have stained concrete floors with an acrylic floor finish on them. We recently applied some quick shine polish and they look terrible. I would like to remove the polish but will the quick shine deep cleaner also remove the acrylic finish because I would not want that.

        Heather,

        Quick Shine Deep Cleaner can remove acrylic finishes as our floor finish is an acrylic based finish. We recommend spot treating an area first to see if it has an affect on your stained concrete.

    We have put Quick Shine on our Oak floors every week for about 14 years. We are trying to take off the hundreds of coats of Quick Shine so we can get it back to how it was and start putting quick shine on maybe for a few months and then removing it.

    Removing it is going very very slowly. After about 40 man-hours, we have about half of it stripped off. We’ve tried a stronger solution and that helps, but not much. It was recommended that we use ammonia to get it off faster. I don’t know what to do, but we’re running out of energy, time and patience. Is there anything you get suggest besides wall-wall carpet?

      Hi Marlene,

      You can safely remove our Finish from your floors with Quick Shine Deep Cleaner. Simply apply solution to the area, allow solution to sit for 3-4 minutes and mop away. Our remover has 3x the cleaning power as Ammonia so it will work more effectively to remove the layers. Once the floor is clean and dry, you can reapply our Finish to achieve the WOW Factor once again. For additional assistance, please contact customer service at 800-255-1891. We are always happy to help!

        I have found that a steamer in unison with the ammonia and laundry soap mix works good but still time consuming, I spray my hardwood floor with the mixture I put in an old spray bottle, then put the steamer on top and let it sit for about 30 sec. then I use a brand new putty knife or scraper to get the majority of the wax up, being cautious not to scratch the hardwood, it works but boy is it still extremely time consuming!
