I have no wax vinyl floors that have a small design and dirt gets embedded in the design, what could I use to clean it that would remove the trapped dirt.

    Amonia ( I think I spelled it wrong) and the hottest water you can stand, use a soft scrub brush and the dirt and grease will come right out

    Deep Cleaning No-Wax Floors

    The information I've provided in regards to cleaning no-wax floors will work; however, what if your floors look dirty and dingy? Or worse, what if you unknowingly had no-wax floors but have been waxing them all along?!

    No fear! There is an easy solution. :)

    First and foremost, open the windows to allow ventilation and put your cleaning gloves on. Then, in a bucket mix the following:

    • 1/4 cup white vinegar to one gallon of warm water

    OR

    • 2 to 4 tablespoons ammonia (depending on how much of a deep clean you need to do) to one gallon of warm water. You can also check the product label.

    You are not going to be damp-mopping, as you would with a regular weekly cleaning. You want the solution to sit on the floor. How long depends on the severity of the stain or issue. Start with just a few minutes.

    After sufficient time has passed, mop up any excess liquid from the floor and fill the bucket with plain water. Mop the floor to remove any leftover residue, then pat dry.

    It is always recommended to use minimal amounts of water when cleaning floors. Remember to always dry completely.

    You can get down on your hands and knees with a scrub brush and a bucket of soapy water. It's not the most fun job in the world but it does clean up all the grooves. You can also try using a carpet cleaning machine that will clean hard surfaces as well as carpet. You will have to go along the edges of your flooring by hand as the machine doesn't get close enough to the wall.
