alphacleaning2009 if the above methods don't work, just scrape it off with a scraper, I've done that very often and it came out pretty good.

Rust Removal

There are ways you can get the rust out, at least most if not all of it. The first thing you have to do is apply stripper on the area at full strength to get off all the wax on the floor. Use the most aggressive pad on the area or use a piece of a floor pad for a small area. Rinse with water after you are done. Sometimes that is all you need to do.

If not,

Now the area is clean and down to the bare tile, apply a rust remover to the area, you can use "Rust Out" or "Whink" or any other rust removal product (you can find this at the grocery store- cleaning product isle) let the product eat the rust away, and wipe with a clean rag and rinse.

That should do the trick.

Rust stains in VCT

Hello All,

I have a problem with some floors in my plant. The old in house janitorial staff didnt care for them very well and they have a ton of rust stains all over the place from shelves and other metal objects sitting on them. In one office I stripped the floor two times and I also ran the scrubber over it with just clear water even though the rust faded there was still some discoloration present. We use spartan green solution stripper and seal products which arent the best either. I was wondering if you guys have had this problem before and if should what have you dont about it. thanks
