Hi Gina,
You can remove wax from your wood floors a couple different ways:
1. Apply ice to the wax to harden it, then gently scrape with a putty knife with a clean edge. (If it were me I would try this method on the walls too.)
2. Lay paper towels over the wax, iron the paper towels, and they should absorb most or all of the wax.
Good luck!

Having worked at a dry-cleaner for many years, I've learned that perchloroethyline dissolves not only candle wax, but also gum. The main product that contains this that I can think of is Carbona Spot Remover.

As an after-thought, please be very careful so you don't cause harm to your floor.
