How to Remove Wax Build Up on Laminate Flooring

Removing that layer of wax buildup from your laminated flooring can be a labor intensive process, but with a few easy solutions – as explained in this article – you can be well on your way to that beautiful floor you have always dreamed of.

Before fully committing to any of these methods, try them out on a small area of the floor to see what works best for your specific situation.

First you can try the soften and scrape method.

Use a hair dryer to warm the wax and then peel it off with an ice scraper. Remember to be gentle! If this method works, proceed to clean the remaining affected areas. This method is preferable to those requiring liquids to be in contact with the flooring for extended periods of time.

If the soften and scrape method does not work for you, you can try vinegar. Use a white microfiber cloth and spray a bottle filled with white vinegar and warm water onto the flooring. Quickly wipe away the vinegar/water mixture and see what happens.

If you are out of vinegar, you can move onto the baking soda. This method involves making a paste by mixing baking soda and water. Gently rub the solution on the floor in one direction and wipe with a clean cloth. This is also a great way to erase marks left on the flooring by rubber boots or shoes.

If the problem persists, it may be time to call in a professional.
