Can linoleum floors be stripped and waxed and if so, how?

They can be stripped and repolished. Use a linoleum floor stripper that is approved by the manufacturer and follow the directions.  This generally involves some soaking and scrubbing.  Once the floor is stripped, use the appropiate sealer.

It requires some skill and patience.  Leave yourself a full day to do it and you can probably get it done.
