Cleaning Machine LLC
Answer: Cold water
Explanation: Alsways cold water and water only. Never use cleaner in your mop water or hot water to mop the floor. Cleaners eat at the wax and will not last as long. Never soak the floor either, this causes the floor to look dull and causes more dust. Use a damp mop with cold water!!

Answer: Cold water
Explanation: Mopping should be done with cold water and a neutral cleaner. If hot water is used on a waxed VCT floor, it can cause the wax to come up with the mop and also gives the wax a cloudy appearance. Also, do not use harsh cleaners to mop a VCT floor. Bleach or ammonia based products will strip wax off of the VCT floor.
