question on old floor Sign In/Join 
Another question the laundry has old vinyl squares (Tile) it appears to be in decent shape but very vintage. Is there a clear coat that could be painted or put ontop of this vinyl so it would shine and look a bit better???

A product like "Future", Acrylic floor coat may give you enough of a shine. Make sure the floor is really clean and rinsed clean prior to application, and two coats are often best, I think.

I have also purchased a commercially rated wax type coating from the hardware store to use on older linoleum. (not truly a wax, as it dries with a shine, without buffing) The gloss held up well, and is also a bit non slip.
