profcleaning You will need to strip the old wax off.For that you need a floor stripper.If you are not familiar with strippers be SUPER careful.

Trouble with them is think you've rinsed really well, but the smallest amount of stripper will lift the wax after it's dried!!

To save yourself the trouble of this happening use ammonia.I know, I know it stinks! and bad, but it's cheap and you won't have to worry

about not getting it off the floor as much as those fancy pricey stripper concoctions.

So you are going to have to strip, rinse, and this is critical THE FLOOR MUST BE BONE DRY and not just on the surface but down in the tiny cracks and around the edges of the tile or again the wax will not be wax for long as it will turn to powder.

So the floor is stripped (it looks really dull, no shine) it's bone dry! YES?.Now you can apply the wax using a small wax applicator.

You can get wax at a janitorial supply house as well as a small wax applicator.

Cleaning VCT tiles in a server room


I've been asked to clean the floors of a few small utility buildings that contain sensitive electronic equipment and computers. The typical building is a 10' x 10' hut and the floor is made of vinyl composite tiles. I normally do only exterior maintenance but they asked me for a quote to do the indoor stuff.

Depending of the job requested, I'll have to do:

1- Cleaning only (vacuum, light cleaning)

2- Stripping and waxing

I can't use a buffer in there and I can't risk spilling anything on the equipment. There is no running water nearby so I'll need to bring a small quantity of water.

What would be the best way to accomplish these tasks?
