General Rules of Cleaning No-Wax Vinyl Floors

When your no-wax vinyl floor needs cleaning, wash with a cleaner made specifically for no-wax vinyl floors. If you have older vinyl floors that requires waxing, clean it with a warm water and detergent. Dampen a mop or sponge with the mixture and rub the floor just enough to loosen the dirt. Try not to rub off the wax because you’ll just have to reapply it. Rinse with clean,cool water-no matter what the label says about not needing to rinse- otherwise you’ll leave a residue.

(Don’t use mop and wax products either) If your no-wax floor looses it’s shine restore it with a polish or sealant made for no-wax flooring. Make sure the floor is thoroughly clean and apply one to two thin layers as directed. It should keep your floor shining for at least a year with routine damp mopping. If you have an older floor that requires waxing, wax wax when it looses its sheen, but use only the amount called for on the container label.
