VCT Floor Stripping and Waxing

Finishing New Floor Installations
Sealing New Flooring tiles may be coated with a thin layer of finish, wax to protect them during shipping and make handling easier during installation. This finish is not meant to be the final finish on the tile when put into use. It must be cleaned off after installation and then a more durable finish applied.
High Speed VCT Floor Polishing
Burnishing is similar to buffing in that the floor is smoothed and finishes with a higher gloss. However, rather than “sanding” or abrasion being the main process to smooth the floor is heat melting some of the finish allowing it to flow and level making the finish smoother.
Refinishing or Sealing
New finish should only be applied to a clean floor. Otherwise the finishes will trap or seal in any dirt on the floor as the finish dries. New finish will be applied to replace finish that has been worn away by traffic. Thus it will not be necessary to apply the finish edge to edge because little or no finish has been worn from the few inches close to the wall.
Floor Scrubbing and Waxing
If a floor is properly maintained and not permitted to get into bad condition, it will seldom be necessary to completely strip the finish down to bare tile. Rather a “mini” version of the process called scrub and recoat will suffice. Scrub and recoat is easier, often takes less time, requires less material and is less messy with less clean-up.
Rather than removing all layers of finish, the top layer or two of finish is removed. These top layers have been abraded and soil has been worked into through the weight of foot traffic. When they are removed, additional layers of clean finish in good condition remain below.
How should we clean a waxed floor in a commercial building?
The key is using cold water and a neutral floor cleaner or neutral disinfectant. Sometimes people will use hot water, this will melt and damage the floor finish. Try to avoid using bleach or other harsh detergents also, they can damage the floor finish or make it look cloudy.
