Cleaning a Painted Linoleum Floor

Category Floors

I have a painted linoleum floor in my bathroom that just won't get clean around the edges with regular mopping. I've tried one heavy-duty cleaner, with no luck. I'm almost ready to just paint it over, but I worry about painting over dirt. Any suggestions?

I would paint it with drywall primer/sealer before painting. I have been painting stuff for years. If you do paint over any dirt, it will seal it in. Or try scraping the dirt out from the edges first if it's thick. Then the primer, then paint. It will hold up longer also if you seal it first. Good luck!
