VCT-Vinyl Composition Tile
Vinyl composition tile (VCT) is a strong and durable flooring material and is a popular choice for both residential and commercial buildings. VCT flooring requires regular maintenance to ensure it maintains its durable properties. VCT cleaning and sealing requires periodic re-coating, routine stripping and re-sealing to maintain a fresh, clean finish and to ensure the floors last a long time.
If you are building new 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.
VCT Cleaning and Sealing Tips:
- Utilize floor mats at all entryways so floors stay cleaner longer. Mats also help keep floors dry, which can be a safety concern.
- VCT flooring should be cleaned daily using a dust mop, damp mop, and a clean water rinse. This helps maintain the floors between professional cleanings.
- 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.
- 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.
