VCT Cleaning and Polishing

Vinyl tile restoration can make your floors look like new

VCT (Vinyl Composition Tile) flooring is durable, inexpensive and easy to install, but it is vulnerable to yellowing, staining, and surface erosion. Especially in facilities where various alkaline or acidic liquids are spilled, or where heavy traffic tracks in asphalt or dirt residue, your shiny VCT floor can look soiled and dull very quickly.

What is VCT?

Vinyl composition tile (VCT) is a finished flooring material used primarily in commercial and institutional applications. Vinyl tiles are composed of colored vinyl chips formed into solid sheets of varying thicknesses (1/8” is most common) by heat and pressure and cut into 12” squares. Tiles are applied to a smooth, leveled sub-floor using a specially formulated vinyl adhesive that remains tacky but does not completely dry. Tiles are typically waxed and buffed using special materials and equipment. Vinyl tile is favored over other kinds of flooring materials in high-traffic areas because of its low cost, durability, and ease of maintenance. Vinyl tiles have high resilience to abrasion and impact damage and can be repeatedly refinished with chemical strippers and mechanical buffing equipment. If properly installed, tiles can be easily removed and replaced when damaged. Tiles are available in a variety of colors from several major flooring manufacturers. Some manufacturers have created vinyl tiles that very closely resemble wood, stone, terrazzo, and concrete. Tiles can easily be cut and assembled into colorful and decorative patterns.

VCT Maintenance

Routine cleaning includes prompt removal of spills, daily dry soil removal and performing one of three wet cleaning options daily or as needed based upon usage, soil load and desired aesthetics. Periodic Scheduled Maintenance should be performed when routine maintenance no longer maintains the optimal appearance.
