VCT Stripping & Waxing 101


VCT Floor Stripping and Waxing

If you have VCT (Vinyl Composite Tile) flooring in your property, then you must know that it is best to strip and wax the floor during the warm weather. Doing this will keep your floors clean and make your facility smell better and look impressive. VCT floor stripping and waxing also offers economic and health benefits. VCT floor stripping and waxing will take off dirt, scuffs, stains, and grease. It will eliminate the likelihood of employees falling sick from getting exposed to dirt or slipping and hurting themselves. It also protects the flooring from water damage or moisture. Surfaces will last longer if they are properly cleaned. Having beautiful floors will impress your customers. Especially those who care about quality.


Benefits of VCT Stripping and Waxing

Prevents Scratches

Normally, every floor will experience a large amount of traffic. The same applies to VCT flooring. A large amount of traffic will leave any scratches behind. Having scratches on your floors will make them look older than they should be. But after VCT stripping and waxing, these scratches are removed, and the wax will help to form a layer that prevents future scratches. Stripping and waxing will restore your floors.


Prevents Staining and Discolouration

Since your VCT flooring will see lots of traffic, it will start to have discolouration and get stained. Although a strong stain remover will get rid of these stains, preventing discolouration on the hand will be difficult if you don't do VCT stripping and waxing regularly. Stripping the flooring will help gets rid of any discolouration and stains. Waxing it leaves a protective coating. This coating helps to prevent future stains and discolouration.

Prevents Tile Lifting

Your VCT floor will be in a place where that doesn't expose it to high traffic. However, it will likely experience water and debris spills. These spills can make your VCT floor lift. Water will get beneath the flooring which will, in turn, weaken the glue, and make your flooring loose. But, after waxing, these cracks will be sealed, and water will be blocked from getting into them. Waxing prevents VCT from lifting. Instead, it holds it in place.


Restores the Floor to Its Original State

Your VCT can add to the beauty of your home's interior. But as time passes, the floors will begin to lose their original beauty. When you do VCT stripping and waxing, it removes the little imperfections that exist and dirt as well. This will make the floors look better. After waxing and stripping, the floor will look shiny and new.


Final Words

When your VCT floor is stripped, and waxed, it will form a barrier against anything that can potentially damage or stain them. This means your floors will be protected from traffic and daily wear & tear. You must use the right chemicals and equipment to carry out waxing on this type of floor. Using the wrong chemicals can damage your floor. This is why you must work with professionals because they will know the right materials to use. They will also have the proper training.
