Vinyl Floor Cleaning Rockford IL
Vinyl Composition Tile (VCT) is a popular choice for commercial buildings because of its durability and relative ease of maintenance. In order to sustain its durability and reasonable scratch resistance, VCT needs to have protector applied, be cleaned regularly, and be maintained properly. Below are tips for maintaining VCT.
- Proper matting: Use walk-off mats at all entryways to help keep floors clean and dry longer; however, it is vital that these mats be cleaned regularly.
- Daily cleaning regimen: Dust mopping, damp mopping, and rinsing with clean water (with a thorough dry-out time) are the keys to maintenance in between professional cleanings.
- Recoating: Depending on VCT maintenance or the amount of foot traffic at a particular facility, it is good practice to periodically recoat VCT to maintain a clean, shiny finish.
- Routine maintenance: It is important to routinely strip off the build-up of wax from repeated maintenance to maintain a fresh finish. This should be done by a professional.
