Mary asked: How do I remove wax build up from vinyl flooring? My vinyl flooring is about 20 years old, and the wax is built up. The vinyl is looking yellow.
Linoleum and vinyl flooring is popular because it is affordable but also because it is so easy to care for. Unlike hardwood flooring or cork flooring, it stands up well to water, so you can use a mop with plenty of warm, soapy water for the cleaning. Just make sure you mop up excess water afterwards.

Waxed floors such as linoleum or vinyl can flake or become yellow due to age or too many layers of wax. Even freshly-washed and waxed floors can look dull or yellow if there are too many layers of wax underneath. You can strip the old wax from the floor without the need for harsh, commercial wax-stripping chemicals.
If your linoleum or vinyl floor remains dirty even after a thorough scrub then it's time to strip and wax. Head to a local janitorial supply company for a bottle of eco-friendly floor stripper, a jug of non-yellowing wax and a nylon scrub brush. Open the windows and turn on the fan. Follow bottle direction to remove all the old wax, buildup and dirt in a 4 x 4 section.
