Keeping linoleum floors clean requires little more than regular damp-mopping (use very little water, which can make the surface brittle) or dry dust-mopping to rid the surface of grit and dust before it is ground in.
Each week, deep clean with a neutral pH cleaner, such as a little dishwashing detergent dissolved in lukewarm water.
As part of your cleaning routine, you'll also want to:
To keep linoleum shiny and lustrous, each year apply a polishing wax such as carnauba wax to seal and protect the surface.
Areas of your linoleum that get heavy use should be stripped and rewaxed as needed. For heavy wear areas, you may need to wax once a month.
