Wax Buildup on Laminate Floors 

Laminate Floors
Laminate gives you the look of hardwood flooring.

Terri’s laminate flooring has a waxy buildup that she’s having a hard time getting rid of.

Terri should check with the manufacturer of any product she put on the floor prior to the waxy buildup.

Tammy is considering selling her home but says storage is definitely an issue.

Tammy tells us her laundry room has a stacked washer and dryer with very little room for anything else.

Tammy can look into adjustable shelving and wall cabinets that she can mount to get items off the floor.  Also, next to the washer and dryer is a good place for shelving. An experienced remodeling contractor may be able to help come up with a simple alternative for her laundry room.

Additionally, her local home builders association should have a list of contractors that can offer an inexpensive option for her house.
