The previous maintenance crew at this school did an absolutely horrible job. They would "strip", not remove all of the wax, and then they would re-wax over a dirty floor. The wax yellows, and the VCT floor looks horrible.
Floors are part of the problem, but I think I can tackle them with previous experience.
The problem I'm coming across is corners--where doors meet walls, where two walls meet, etc. The area on the ground by the baseboards is filled with waxed in filth and dirt, and it gives the whole school a very ratty appearance.
I have tried baseboard stripper and other [harsh] chemicals, and although they may have helped slightly, the problem is still quite apparent. I even tried scraping the dirt off, and it will not come off of the floor without leaving stains.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
