Why are there white spots after applying floor wax?

  • If the concrete surface is uneven with low spots, wax can pool in these areas when applied too heavily. This pooling can cause the wax to become milky or white, especially noticeable in rounded spots where the accumulation is significant.
  • Any remaining moisture on the surface or within the pores of the concrete that gets trapped under the wax layer can lead to a milky or hazy appearance. This moisture needs to evaporate completely; otherwise, as it tries to escape, it clouds the wax.
  • Applying wax to a concrete surface that is below 60°F can prevent the wax from curing properly, leaving it white and milky—similar to its appearance when first applied. The wax doesn't bond well with cold surfaces, resulting in an undesirable finish.

How can I prevent white spots after waxing concrete?

To prevent white spots on waxed concrete, it is crucial to ensure even application by avoiding overly heavy wax application on uneven surfaces to prevent pooling, thoroughly dry the surface to eliminate any moisture on the surface or within its pores before wax application, and apply the wax only when the concrete surface temperature is at or above 60°F. For optimal results, the wax should closely match the floor temperature, ideally within 5-7 degrees, to ensure proper adhesion and curing of the wax.

What should I do to remove white spots on my waxed concrete floor?

If you're already facing the issue of white spots on waxed concrete, there are several steps you can take to address it. First, remove excess wax in areas where it has pooled by carefully scraping off the surplus or using a wax stripper, then reapply a thinner layer of wax properly. Next, address any moisture issues by allowing the area to dry thoroughly, which may involve the use of dehumidifiers or fans to expedite the drying process. Once the area is dry, reapply the wax as recommended. Finally, if possible, increase the temperature of the area to above 60°F and allow the surface to reach this temperature before reapplying the wax to ensure proper adhesion and curing of the wax.

How-To Guide

Preliminary Testing

Before using the product for your entire project, try it out on a small, hidden area of the surface you'll be working on. This will let you see how it looks and if it's the right fit for your project.


  • Clean the Surface: Sweep the floor to remove loose dirt and debris. Proceed to mop thoroughly, ensuring all dirt is removed. If old wax is present, it must be removed. The floor must be completely clean before proceeding.
  • Dry the Surface: After cleaning, the floor must be fully dry before applying the polish. If the floor was wet during the cleaning process, allow it to dry for 24 hours to ensure no moisture remains.
  • Reapplication on Previously Waxed Floors: For floors that have been previously waxed and now display a cloudy or hazy appearance, it's necessary to strip the floor. Use ProWax Polish™ Remover to eliminate old wax and finish thoroughly before reapplying wax. Refer to the ProWax Polish™ Remover Technical Data Sheet for detailed instructions.


  • Always wear appropriate personal protective equipment as recommended in the Safety Data Sheet.
  • Protect surfaces not intended for polishing by covering surrounding areas to prevent accidental application.
  • Avoid using tape on concrete surfaces before or after waxing, as adhesives and plasticizers can interfere with ProWax Polish™'s effectiveness.

Tools for Application

  • Microfiber Push Mop: Efficient, thorough application on large surfaces.
  • Lamb’s Wool Mop: For large areas, smooth finish.
  • Trim Pad: Precise application in tight spaces.
  • Foam Mop with Wringer Attachment: Controlled application, easy excess removal.


  • Apply ProWax Polish™ at a rate of roughly 500 ft2 per gallon for efficient coverage.
  • Dampen your applicator in warm water and wring out excess moisture before use.
  • Start application at a far corner of the area to maintain a clear exit path.
  • Wet the applicator in ProWax Polish™ and apply the first coat in one direction only.
  • Angle the applicator toward the inside edge to manage excess wax runoff.
  • Ensure a thin and even application, re-dipping the applicator in ProWax Polish™ as needed. Overlap each pass slightly until the entire floor is coated.
  • Maintain wet edges to minimize overlap marks.
  • Note: The wax may appear milky when applied but will dry clear.
  • Allow 1-3 hours between coats, with two thin coats recommended for best results.
  • Test the coat hardness with your thumbnail; if dents or scratches are visible, allow more curing time before applying additional coats.
  • Apply the second coat in the opposite direction, following the same steps.
