How do you strip seal and wax Kentile flooring that is old and dull?
Best be careful -- up till 1986, Kentile tiles were full of asbestos. The company filed for Chapter 11 in the 90s because of all the lawsuits. Better have them checked by a professional.

I usually use the thickest wax ring I can find with the plasticfunnel thing embedded in it. If it's a little too thick, the extrawax will just squeeze out a bit underneath the… toilet. Sometimesits necessary to double up on the ring (use two - one with thefunnel one without) to make a good seal on a flange afterinstalling a thick (tile) floor in a bathroom which I kind ofassume is your issue. If the closet collar is even with the top of the finished floor, noamount of wax will stop the water from coming out. It may nothappen right away, but it sure will. One way to fix this problem isto attempt to raise the closet collar so that it will rest on topof the finished floor. Another way is to buy a closet collarextension. Either way the toilet will be held to the floor and thewax ring should then seal tight. It depends... The advice above is good however if you have one ofthe newer "Super Toilets" such as the Toto Drake or Am Std Championthe outlet hole on these are enlarged and you should not use thewax rings that come with the plastic horn. The plastic horn willactually get pinched by the larger outlet and be squeezed into anoval shape that will actually cause clogs. Another option is not to use wax seal at all. I have encounteredmany problems using wax seal ,it does not last long and it does notlook nice. My option would be to use white, Prattley Putty standardsetting. It seals water tight, goes very hard in 2 hours, easy toapply and it gives off a white, smooth very appealing finish.(ItsPlumbers Cement) *If you are attaching to a plastic Floor Flange, you would use aKant Leak(which has the plastic hub installed with the wax seal)and use a hacksaw to cut a regular wax seal in half,still leavingit like a round donut. You put the Kant Leak on the flange, thenmold the wax seal half on top of the Kant Leak. The 1/2 wax sealshould be formed so when you put the toilet down it does not pushinto the center and down the drain. If you are putting the toiletonto a Cast Iron or Lead flange with a brass ring, DO NOT use theKant Leak. Use one and 1/2 wax seals and do the same as I statedpreviously. If the toilet flange is flush with the floor you are probably fineand would not need to use an extension kit to raise the flange. Aslong as your flange is in good condition and firmly secured to thefloor below it you should be ok.
First, do NOT wax laminate floors in the first place! They are not supposed to be waxed. However, if you are in a situation like I am, namely the previous owners waxed your… laminate and now it looks awful, you can try scraping the wax up with a credit card or store "club" card, or hitting it with a hot blow-dryer and wiping with paper towels.\n. \n Answer \n. \nAmmonia water will help dissolve and remove the wax. We used to do this periodically on our old-style asbestos tile. Works well and then you can clean as usual. It may take several tries to get it right. I also used Mop and Glow, which yellowed like wax, so this works to remove that, too.\n. \n \n. \nI also used the solution provided by Eric and www.fixmyfloors.com he gave great advice and saved me a bundle.
waxing kentile . I have old (20 plus probably) Kentile flooring in my home that I would like to wax. They are very dull and only stay shiny for a short period of time when …I wax them with just a generic floor wax such as Johnsons or Armstrong.. Does anyone know the proper procedure for cleaning, sealing, waxing this type of floor?. Vinyl flooring is the easiest flooring to maintain. It cleans up easily with a myriad of products. I prefer "Armstrong" vinyl floor cleaner. It is available at most supermarkets. Follow the instructions on the label. For deeper cleaning- particularly on textured vinyl- get on your hands and knees and use a scrub brush. I'm sure you'll be pleased with the results.
27 cents a sq foot
First, it's easy to determine square footage with the 12 inch square linoleum floor tiles. Simply count them horizontally and vertically and multiply. To example a room that i…s ten tiles wide and 8 tiles long (10 X 8 = 80) has eighty tiles. The next question is more difficult - how much wax buildup is on the floor. If you can address those two questions, you are on the way of havin the answer for how long it will take to strip the floor. Before waxing, it's recommended that the floor be rinsed to clean, neutralize and remove excess stripper. Waxing will be much easier. It just needs to be applied smoothly and evenly. However, at least 2 coats should be applied

If you are talking about ceramic or porcelain tiles then yes. Granite tile and counters can also be cleaned using acetone. For softer stones like marble and travertine I would… recommend using petrochemicals.
the right amount is Â£70.90
It depends on the length and width of the floor
