If you have a business that uses VCT floors you know what a benefit they are. VCT of vinyl composite tile is a great option for warehouses, convenience stores and retail space alike. Many businesses use them but will soon learn that there is some upkeep when dealing with them. As a general rule of thumb a business tends to have a lot of traffic. On top of the traffic you are less likely to be careful about what you track in a business or a commercial space. That makes the floors look dirty and dingy. The great part about using a VCT floor is that they can be cleaned and polished professionally. The dirt and grime that starts to accumulate on the floors can be cleaned off. Over time the VCT floors even after they are cleaned they are not looking as good as they used to. There is still hope for your VCT floors with a service that is called VCT Stripping & Waxing.
Baker Sandoval Cleaning Outlines the Steps to Have Your VCT Floors Stripped & Waxed
Clearing Floors of Furniture: When you start to notice that the floors are not getting as clean as you want you may be in need of stripping and waxing. The wax layer that is on floors currently can start to get dingy and hold the dirt and debris. This is the realization that you often need to have them stripped down. Before the floors can be worked on whether they are in a school, store or business you need to clear them off. That means removing all pieces of furniture that might be on the floors. The entire area will need to be worked on to get the outcome that you want. This may take some time but will need to be done before they can be serviced.
Stripping VCT Tile Floors: The VCT floors are a composite tile that is laid in a space such as a gym or store. It is them layered with wax that will actually create a barrier between the traffic and dirt which will make it easier to clean. The wax will need to be removed from the tile to start a fresh coat. The dirt can start to stain the wax which is why you cannot re-wax over the existing wax. The removal of the wax is called stripping. It is chemically removed from the tile so that it can be cleared and prepped for the next layer.
Waxing VCT Floors: The last level of the floors that need to be done is the waxing process. The waxing is done in layers and will require some drying time. The wax will smooth out the look of the floors and leave a nice clean surface. This will also make the cleaning after the fact easier and the floors can be polished nicely.
