Thursday's Ask the Experts: Hardwood wax on tile

October 29, 2009
Thursday''s Ask the Experts questions from a cleaning professionals on the International Custodial Advisors Network (ICAN) "Ask the Experts" page: I am cleaning behind a woman who cleaned tile floors with hardwood floor wax. How can I remove this from the tile floor without ruining the tile or the grout?
The answer:
You can safely use stripper on the tile floor. This will loosen the buildup of floor wax so it can be removed and the floor left clean. You may wish to leave it unfinished or apply a finish designed for this sort of tile. — Lynn E. Krafft, ICAN/ATEX editor, lekrafft@juno.com.
