Preserving Beautiful Vinyl Tile Floors

The Secret to Maintaining Vinyl & Luxury Tile Flooring

Vinyl floor sealing and coating are essential steps in maintaining the longevity and appearance of your floors. The best practices include ensuring that the porous tile is well sealed to prevent water and other liquids from seeping into the material and causing damage. Using a nano-polymer finish can provide an extra layer of protection against soil infiltration, making it easier to clean and maintain the floors. Additionally, implementing a good and regular restorative maintenance program, such as buffing and recoating the floors when needed, can help extend the life of the vinyl and keep it looking its best. By following these best practices, you can ensure that your vinyl floors remain in top condition for years to come.

The Components of a Good Floor Care Program

Floor care is a continuous life-cycle process that involves various stages such as cleaning, maintenance, and restoration. Over time, the protective coats of finish on floors may become damaged due to wear and tear, requiring them to be removed and replaced. In some cases, the finish may just need to be softened and reformed to restore its protective properties. Regular maintenance and care are essential to prolong the life of floors and keep them looking their best.

Controlled Destruction

A floor coating system is always formed in layers. A finish that may be applied in just a single coat would be too thick to spread. When damaged layers must be removed, we have many options: from complete removal to systematic removal of just the top few layers of damaged finish. The choice is yours.

Sealer & Finish Selection

Sealers and finishes are generally selected to accommodate the substrate. The tighter the material, the less the need for sealing off the porous material. VCT, for example, is 70% clay, very porous. LVT - Luxury Vinyl Tile is far more synthetic and only requires minimal sealing-coating to repair heavy traffic wear.

Choice of Cleaner & Maintainer

For at least a generation, 'Neutral Cleaners' ruled the floor care maintenance industry. They were sold on their blandness, their inability to damage cheap floor finishes. We believe that cleaners should always be dual-nature, with both superior cleaning ability and providing improved gloss or SCOF.
