Cleaning and Waxing Vinyl Floor Coverings Regular Cleaning
Use the mildest method you can to make the floor
look clean again. Vacuum or sweep regularly to remove dirt before it gets ground in. Wipe up spills at once. When soil won't come up with vacuum, mop with damp mop squeezed out of cool to lukewarm water. Rub only enough to remove dirt on surface.
Wash only when dirt will not come off by milder
methods listed above. Use solution of warm (not hot) water and detergent; apply small amount with mop or sponge, rubbing only enough to loosen dirt; take up with mop or sponge. Rinse off all solution thoroughly with clean, cool water; always rinse well no matter what the detergent or cleaner says about not rinsing.
In cleaning, try to remove soil without destroying the wax film on the floor so rewaxing does not have to be done too often.
Wax a thin coat of self-polishing wax on dry, clean
floor, when washing does not bring back shine. Wax
flooring when new, and always keep it protected with a coat of wax. Regular wax will give more protection and shine than one-step wax-and-clean products, but will build up over time.
Polishing wax (solvent based) to be buffed with
electric polisher, may also be used on vinyl if desired. It must be thoroughly buffed, following directions on wax label. It will not build up.
