VCT Cleaning and Sealing
VCT-Vinyl Composition Tile
Vinyl composition tile (VCT) is a strong and durable flooring material. It is also a popular choice for both residential and commercial buildings. Vinyl composition tile requires periodic recoating, routine stripping and resealing to maintain a fresh, clean finish and to ensure the floors last a long time. VCT flooring also needs regular cleaning between your periodic recoating, routine stripping and resealing appointments to ensure it maintains its durable properties.
Whether you are new construction or remodeling, your VCT flooring should be sealed within a few days after installation. Sealing will protect your new tile from scratching and from fading if exposed to direct sunlight.
At Commercial Cleaning & Restoration, we want the best for you and your vinyl composition tile and we will work to prove it to you.
VCT Cleaning and Sealing Tips
Vinyl Composition Tile Cleaning from Start to Finish
Floor Mats should be used
Floors stay cleaner longer when you utilize floor mats at all entryways. Mats also help keep floors dry, which can be a safety concern.
VCT flooring Should by cleaned daily
A dust mop, damp mop, and a clean water rinse should be used daily to clean VCT flooring. This helps maintain the floors between professional cleanings.
VCT Flooring Needs occasional waxing
Occasionally VCT flooring will require a wax coating be applied to maintain the clean, shiny appearance of the floors. The frequency will be determined by the amount of foot traffic on the floors.
VCT Flooring Should be stripped and resealed
Finally, it is necessary that the wax coatings left from repeated maintenance will need to be stripped, and the floors are resealed with a fresh finish. This should always be done by a professional.
A regular maintenance schedule for your VCT cleaning and sealing is very important. It extends the life of your floors and maintains a clean work and living environment. Flooring is a major investment. Through the use of highly effective cleaning products, we are able to increase labor efficiency and reduce your overall costs.
