Cleaning Question


I'm getting ready to move out of my apartment and need some cleaning questions answered so I can get as much of my deposit back as I can.
1) What is the best way to clean our kitchen floors to get that shine wax look again?
2) Best way to clean dirty walls without have to repaint them? Maybe wash them?
3) Best way to clean carpet stains (Pet/spills)?

Baldie:
I own an apartment block, and I can advise you on these items:

1. Cleaning your floors depends on what kind of flooring you have. Please advise me of what the type of flooring is.

2. The very best thing I know of for cleaning dirty walls is with a Magic Eraser, maybe with some cleaning solution like Mr. Clean or Fantastic. It's the very fine structure of a Magic Eraser that gets into the tiny surface roughness of wall paint that makes it ideal for cleaning paint.

3. If you have a wet/dry vaccuum cleaner, apply a cleaning solution to the area of the carpet the stain is on, agitate the pile a bit to get the cleaner into the stain, and then lift the soiled cleaning solution out of the carpet by applying the nozzle of the wet/dry vaccuum cleaner directly to the carpet. Then apply clean rinse water to rinse the cleaning solution out of the carpet.
For the pet stain, open your yellow pages phone directory to "Janitorial Equipment & Supplies" and phone some of the places listed there. As them if they sell "carpet spotting solutions" individually. They should. A spotting solution is a cleaning solution that professionals use to clean stains out of carpets or furniture upholstery. You simply follow the directions on the spotting solution using your vaccuum cleaner as a carpet extractor.
