Im in a rental with crappy linoleum stick on tiles. The floor is crazy sticky. Ive tried just water, cleaning solutions, and pinesol and it is still sticky. Any suggestions?
Ive also tried using a sponge mop and a rag (the one with all the strings) mop, both which dont seem to be working. Im just short of getting on my hands and knees with a sponge and a greenie.
Is it the mop or the cleaning solution, and how can I fix it?

  • use a wax finishing agent to seal it.

  • I think you can use Murphy's Oil Soap on linoleum flooring.

  • Call your landlord and tell them that your floor is always sticky and tell them what you have tried to clean it with. If they don't have any good suggestions, I would ask them to replace it.

    I lived in an apartment once where the previous renters' rug had left a big yellow stain on the kitchen floor. I pointed it out to the landlord when we moved in so I wouldn't be responsible for it when I moved out. The landlord was willing to replace the flooring.

  • Is it adhesive coming up between the cracks? Rubbing alcohol will get it.
