Vinyl Composition Tile or (VCT)

VCT Floor Cleaning

Why do you need VCT Floor Cleaning?  We can all agree that floors are one of the first areas people notice when they walk into a building. Most people will base the cleanliness of the entire building on the appearance of the floors, can you believe that! Sounds crazy, but when you think about it, if you were to walk into an office and notice the floors were not swept and had noticeable soil build-up, you would immediately think “this building is not very clean”. So is true for all types of flooring whether it is tile & grout, VCT, or stained concrete. The floors have a BIG impression on the cleanliness of the overall building. That is why we offer floor cleaning and refinishing for all types of floors.

Let’s focus on one type of floor cleaning -VCT. What is VCT Flooring? VCT which stands for Vinyl Composite Tile is flooring that’s commonly used in hospitals, schools, county offices, dorm rooms because it is very durable. These floors last for numerous years if properly cared for. The importance of having your VCT properly maintained will increase the appearance and longevity of the tiles.

Why should you professionally clean VCT Floors?

  • Professionally cleaned floors are easier to maintain with daily cleanings, such as sweeping or mopping.
  • Having it cleaned regularly helps protect your investment.
  • A fresh look and clean look is always a plus in any business.
  • Clean floors delight customers, employees, and clients!

Keep in mind that entryways, lobbies, and other high traffic areas especially on entrance levels may require more frequent cleaning than lower traffic areas of the building. These types of areas may require additional maintenance or extra coats of protection.

Between professional cleanings, VCT/Vinyl stripping, and waxing maintenance is key to a long, attractive life for commercial VCT flooring. Vinyl composite tile (VCT) is an excellent choice for commercial applications because of its durability, affordability, and ease of maintenance. However, you still need to care for them, otherwise, your floors can start to discolor and lose their non-slip quality. To restore VCT, a stripping and waxing treatment is necessary for routine maintenance.

Our technicians completely remove your old wax and soil using a mechanical buffer and stripping solution. Next, we mop clean your floors to remove any excess solution or debris. If there are any damaged tiles, we will notify you at this time as well. Finally, we apply various coats of premium wax to your floors for a shiny, glass-like finish. Our innovative equipment is fast and efficient so that you can have safe and high gloss VCT floors in no time!

VCT Floor Cleaning and Maintenance

Daily cleaning of the floors is important because dust breaks down the finish, it is best to sweep and mop the floor every night depending on traffic to ensure your floors stay in the best condition.

Keeping tile floors beautiful helpful tips: There are several steps your company or your cleaning contractor can take to preserve the cleanliness of your tile floors.

  • Vacuum or sweep floors before mopping to remove as much dirt as possible, especially dirt that has settled into the grout.
  • Mop tile regularly with a neutral cleaner. Rinse the mop in freshwater after mopping a small section. Then, remove excess water from the floors by mopping with a dry mop.
  • Clean spills quickly to avoid staining floors.
  • Avoid scratching and scraping your floors with actions like dragging chairs or furniture. Scratches and cracks on the floor easily capture dirt.
  • Don’t use finish wax, ammonia-based cleaners, or bleach that can damage floors.
