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.

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.
