Vinyl Composition Tile (VCT) is a great floor option for areas that endure high foot traffic due to its strength and durability. This type of flooring is common in commercial buildings, restrooms, supermarkets and other businesses that have a great deal of foot traffic. While this type of flooring is very durable, it still requires proper maintenance to retain its strength and endurance. Because VCT is common where there is heavy foot traffic, it takes a beating and often can be seen wearing black scuff marks and other dirty marks.
Preparing for Strip & Wax of VCT Floors
VCT is a great option because it comes in a variety of colors and can be made to resemble terrazzo, stone, wood or even concrete. VCT is made from chips of vinyl that are fused together with heat and pressure. Over time VCT will require proper cleaning and maintenance to retain its durability. This is done through the process of stripping and waxing the VCT. Before this process begins, you must thoroughly inspect your VCT flooring and look for any gum, mud or other foreign objects that may be stuck to its surface. Scrape up any of these using a knife or scraper.
Stripping of VCT Flooring
After you have inspected the VCT floor thoroughly, sweep it with a broom or dust mop to remove any and all dust and dirt particles. Removing all the loose dirt from the VCT flooring will guarantee a clean result when you are completely finished. If you fail to remove all of the dust and dirt, you will only make the VCT flooring dirtier through the remainder of the cleaning process. VCT flooring requires a stripping chemical to clean properly; this solution must be carefully mixed. Be sure to designate a specific bucket for this solution, if it is mixed with other cleaners or used for a surface that is not VCT, it will ruin that surface permanently.
