Dingy vinyl floor


Anyone have any suggestions how best to clean traffic dirt from white vinyl flooring? Hate to replace it since its not that old but it is stained brown from foot traffic.

I guess you won't be buying white vinyl flooring anymore? If it was dirt, it would easily wash off. I bet you have an asphalt driveway or street, and people do not remove their shoes.

I know what your saying...I had one like that as well with no asphalt in sight. My floor was a no wax and the only way to ge it clean was to pick up some flooring stripper/cleaner, and a bottle of wax/sealer. Test first and if it's successful, apply to the whole floor.

If you strip the floor seal it immediately....my ex didn't get around to sealing the floor after stripping...and it was an official PITA to get clean after it was left so long.
