Vinyl Composition Tile (VCT) is commonly found in many offices and retail establishments. It has an easy-to-clean surface and can withstand high foot traffic. While VCT is both attractive and functional, it requires proper care from professionals who have experience working with it. Leaving the work to inexperienced people can quickly damage the material and adhesives. As a result, rather than having long-lasting, attractive and durable flooring, improper maintenance can lead to either expensive repairs or a new floor altogether.
Bonded Professionals Who Know Proper Protocol For Cleaning Your VCT Flooring: Over Aggressive Cleaning Can be Problematic
At TMG Cleaning Services, we understand the importance of both the initial and long-term care of VCT floors. Once a new VCT floor is set, time must be allowed for the glue that holds the tiles in place to set. This process takes between 24-48 hours. Rest assured, we won’t show up during that time! We also know not to wet wash, machine scrub, or strip the floor for at least four days after installation. This is to prevent excess moisture from interfering with the adhesive bond and/or seam treatments. Once the floor has set, usually after about two weeks, high-quality commercial floor polish should be applied to bring out the color of the floor and to serve as a protective coating, as well. A commercial floor sealer beneath the polish should be considered in areas of high traffic, high soil load and areas where staining is possible.
After sealing we recommend a periodic care program be created to ensure the longevity and quality of the tiles. Occasional stripping and polishing of the floor is necessary. This should only be done by professional technicians who are experienced in this area. Too much heat or too much water can separate the adhesives and permanently damage the tiles. The frequency of the maintenance program depends on the amount and type of traffic on the floor. TMG Cleaning Services has professionals who inspect the floors, measure the foot traffic in consultation with a building or office manager, and then establish a schedule for a maintenance program. The program includes stripping the old wax, cleaning, sealing and applying a new coating of polish.
