5 gal. Heavy Duty Floor Stripper is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 40.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Zep floor stripper I tired two other strippers that did not work at all. Last resort I tired Zep and I'm so glad. Took two hours to three days. Love it.

This product was used on an old linoleum floor that had previously been painted and also exposed to a lot of automotive grease and grime. Best results were obtained by using at 100% strength and placing plastic over it to slow evaporation. The floor was very dirty and nasty, so it was quite surprising when the stains and paint actually lifted off the floor. Some of the residue had to be scraped off the floor, but it came off very easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Tremendous amount of manual labor will be involved, but it works. I made the mistake of applying Quick Shine and Mop 'n' Glo over a period of about 3 years to the laminate floors in our rental apartments. These products should be BANNED considering they trap dirt and scuff marks to the floor, leaving a shiny, yet dirty, surface. Working by myself, it took me 9 hours to strip the floor of one 800 ft^2 apartment and about 13 hours to strip a 750 ft^2 apartment. Here are my lessons learned: 1. Use a 50/50 mixture of the Zep Heavy Duty Floor Stripper with EXTREMELY HOT water - as hot as you can possibly stand. I cranked up the temperature setting on the hot water heater to the maximum. I also boiled water on the stove. Using the hottest temperature water is CRITICAL to saving you time and back-breaking labor. This is one of the reasons why one floor took 13 hours to strip and the other took only 9 hours. 2. Wearing thick, insulated gloves, saturate about 15-20 rags with your Floor Stripper/water solution. Spread these rags over the floor to saturate the floor with stripper. This will help keep the floor wet and spread the solution evenly. (See pictures.) Leave these rags on one portion of the floor for about 10 minutes, then re-soak them in the stripper solution and move them to a different section. 3. Use a machine if possible, but clean the residue left on the machine as soon as you are finished using it. I rented a carpet cleaner from a big box store and it helped immensely in picking up the water and residue as well as scrubbing the floor clean. The only disadvantage was that I spent over an hour cleaning the brushes, wheels, rollers, and nooks and crannies on the bottom of the machine. Do not let floor polish residue solidify on the machine - it will be next to impossible to remove. 4. If using a machine such as a Floor Mate or Carpet Cleaner, use EXTREMELY HOT water in the machine. This will make a HUGE difference in your results. 5. Rinse the residue with plenty of fresh, hot water to ensure you get all layers of floor polish off. 6. Be careful not to splash your solution or any residue on the walls - you will need to paint over them to cover it up, or use floor stripper on the wall to remove them. 7. Even with a machine this will be an arduous process - break it up over several days or get someone else to help you. Wear hearing protection if using a machine, take breaks, and don't get too frustrated. NOTE: I suggest buying the 5 gallon container of this product, since it is about the same price as buying three 1 gallon containers. I used about 8 gallons for about 1600 ft^2, so about 1 gallon for every 200 ft^2.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I will never ever recommend this product to anyone……… I will never ever recommend this product to anyone……… Went to home depot down the street and purchased today……. Applied per instructions and used a hard brush scrubber…… Then went over it with my carpet cleaner to rinse completely….. No results, so I applied full strength over the floor to remove the greasy grime….. Let sit for 15 minutes……. Rinsed – Zero results……. Your product is a fortified smelly cleaner and that is it………

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Thumbs down I have linoleum floors that have a few layers of wax on them. I mixed Zep as instruction said 16 oz per gal. No results. Then 32 oz per gallon. No results. Then I poured it full strength directly on the floor. With A LOT. Of scrubbing it lifted. I scrubbed a 4x4 area for about 30 mins. That's entirely too much work. I will be finding something else

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally a product that works! I bought my house just over a year ago. My kitchen has a light color linoleum flooring and I quickly discovered it has a faint texture that grabs dirt and grime. My brother recommended a certain product that creates a nice, glossy sheen and fills in the texture so the dirt doesn't become ground in. With three children and a dog, I am constantly mopping. The downside to said product is trying to strip it off every few months, as it builds up an unwanted grime itself. I tried everything I could think of to strip this off, even using full strength ammonia. It was a pain. I almost gave up. I picked up a gallon of Zep floor stripper as a last ditch effort and gave it a go. I used the 1:4 ratio and it worked like a charm!! I barely had to scrub!! I probably could have used a bit more stripper in the mix, as a few spots felt a bit tougher, but nothing compared to what I was straining with before. This product is amazing!! I will use this stripper from now on and make my life so much easier!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth the money I bought this product to remove floor sealer. I first tried applying the product per directions. It didn't work as well as the reviews suggested. I applied it again without mixing with water. Worked ten times better and didn't damage my tile.
