Vinyl Composite Tile (VCT) Cleaning, Polishing, and Waxing

Without the proper maintenance, hard surface floors like vinyl composite tile (VCT) tend to lose their sheen and start to show wear. VCT is also prone to collecting dirt and grime. Dry particles on the flooring can eventually dig scratches and nicks into the VCT flooring, damaging it permanently. Damage of this nature tends to detract from the overall appearance of your commercial business. Keeping your commercial flooring in pristine condition requires the proper maintenance - cleaning, polishing and waxing.

When considering hiring a commercial floor maintenance service, be sure to look for a top-rated company that utilizes the latest equipment, knows the most specialized floor techniques and works with the best commercial floor finishes and waxes in order to revitalize and protect your VCT flooring.

Your commercial flooring service will most likely use a high speed polisher or burnishing machine. This type of floor cleaning equipment is the best way to clean, polish or wax commercial VCT flooring. Additionally, the color of the pad that the floor cleaning company will depend both on the condition of the floor and the hardness of finish still on the floor.

A professional, commercial VCT floor cleaner in the East Valley, Arizona area will be able to let you know, once they see the condition of your flooring, whether the VCT needs stripping, a scrub and recoat, spray buffing or polishing.

Often when customers ask to polish a floor, what they really need is a scrub and recoat. A scrub and recoat is done by sweeping the floor; mopping on a neutral cleaner to get the floor very wet and scrubbing with a medium aggressive pad, which are usually green or blue in color. After those steps are completed, the floor is rinsed, and left to dry. The finish is applied after the VCT has completely dried. However, if polishing is all that is required, the floor should first be dust mopped using a white, beige or hog's hair pad under the machine. Any spills should also be spot mopped. Then, the flooring contractor will just go to work with the pad until the desired level of shine is achieved.
