How To Remedy Water Spots

Why do some floors show water spots after applying Quick Shine Finishes? Quick Shine Floor Finish and Hardwood Floor Luster are water-borne finishes designed to provide a protective shine to any sealed hard surface floor. However, water spots can occur during the curing process if moisture sits on the surface and absorbs into the finish. You see, water-based finishes need to cure although they dry within minutes. Curing can take up to a week, so it is crucial to prevent moisture on the floor during this time. Here are a few easy ways to maintain beautiful floors after applying Quick Shine:

  • Dry dust frequently to keep dust/debris/pet hair to a minimum
  • Wait at least one week after applying Quick Shine before damp mopping floors
  • Place rugs or towels in water environments to absorb moisture
  • Temporarily place pet water bowls in areas where spills won’t affect the recently applied finish
  • Wipe pet paws at the door and leave shoes there too!

So how can you treat those areas when spotting occurs?

Quick Shine Deep Cleaner was formulated specifically to remove our Finish safely from sealed hard floor surfaces. Simply apply 2-3 tbsp. of Deep Cleaner with 1 cup of HOT water to the compromised area and allow solution to sit for 3-4 minutes before wiping away. Once that area is clean and dry, simply reapply a fresh new coat of Finish to blend evenly with the rest of the floor. You can also remove the entire finish from your floors and start fresh with Deep Cleaner. So take a deep sigh of relief and restore the shine with Quick Shine!

      Hi Mary,
      We recommend using Quick Shine® Deep Cleaner to safely remove our Finish from your floors and provide a clean surface once again. This product was specifically developed to remove polymer and wax finishes without harming hardwood floors or other types of hard surface floors such as tile, vinyl, stone, marble, and laminate. It is also important to note that Quick Shine® Deep Cleaner can also be used to treat small imperfection areas of the floor without treating the entire floor.

      Simply dilute the Deep Cleaner in HOT water and apply to the floor surface in small 5’ x 5’ squares at a time, let stand for a few minutes and agitate. Remove debris and build-up from each 5’ x 5’ area of the floor with a clear water rinse. For heavy buildup, you may need to increase the dilution of 1 cup per gallon to 3 cups per gallon. Deep Cleaner is concentrated, therefore one 27 oz. bottle will make roughly 2 gallons, which covers about 500 square feet and will not damage the sealant on hardwood floors. It is also important to note that Quick Shine® Deep Cleaner can also be used to treat small imperfection areas of the floor without treating the entire floor. After treating the small problem area let dry after rinsing and simply wipe a coat of the Quick Shine® Floor Finish on the treated area. This area will then blend in with the rest of the finished floor due to the advanced leveling agents in the formula. The Quick Shine Deep Cleaner is only available online at,, or by calling our Customer Service Center.
