How do I remove wax or Mop-and-Glow from Pergo floors?
I won't suggest a brand in particular, but there are commercially available cleaners meant specifically for stripping hardwood/pergo/laminated flooring. A quick Amazon/Google search for 'Floor Polish Remover' brings up many options. It appears that this could be quite the project.
It appears as though some people also use a large rotary floor buffer/polisher to even out/remove any waxy buildup. This could also be a 'Pro Project' or something you could contract out.
(P.S. Whatever the outcome, I'd be interested. I also have hardwood floors that may need to be stripped)
Moved into a house with 50's linoleum; LOTS of wax buildup. Tryed one of those fancy 'Floor Polish Removers' at $20 a bottle. It had triethylamine or triethanolamine or some such in it; looked and smelled like 70's vintage floor cleaning chemistry. Bottom line, it didn't work very well on serious wax buildup.
Then tried a bottle of Formula 409, developed 1957, on the floor. It worked wonders. Took off all the old wax with just a good scrubbing. With a fresh coat of wax, my kitchen again shines like the early space age.
