When it comes to large commercial spaces, you need an attractive flooring option that can stand up to foot traffic and remain easy to clean. Vinyl Composite Tile (VCT) checks these boxes, so it’s no wonder this popular product is used in a variety of spaces.
But vinyl flooring still requires thorough cleaning to maintain high-quality condition. That’s why when it comes to cleaning, your team needs to make sure they have the right floor cleaning equipment to keep the floors looking bright and new.
Consider the benefits of investing in a dedicated vinyl floor scrubber that can handle VCT and similar floor surfaces.
What is VCT, and Where Can it Be Used?
Vinyl flooring, like VCT, offers a number of benefits that make it a popular surface in a variety of spaces:
- Highly durable
- Resistant to wear and tear
- Comes in an array of finishes
- Holds up well in high-visibility, high-traffic areas
Plus, in wet environments like kitchens and bathrooms, VCT offers a water-resistant surface that is easy to clean and maintain.
VCT is also cost-effective, providing an affordable flooring solution without compromising on quality and creative design options. Its installation is relatively quick and straightforward, and its enhanced durability and versatility make it a practical choice for all kinds of commercial spaces.
The Challenges of Cleaning Vinyl
Cleaning VCT floors comes with its own set of challenges. Even though it handles day-to-day use very well, a continuous cleaning regimen is needed to maintain its appearance and durability.
Staining & Buildup
One of the primary issues spaces with vinyl flooring face is staining, especially if spills or dirt are not addressed promptly. Certain substances like oil or acidic liquids can cause permanent discoloration if not cleaned properly.
Additionally, VCT flooring can accumulate wax and polish buildup over time which requires stripping and resealing to maintain its durability and luster.
VCT floors can also be sensitive to certain cleaning agents. Harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners can damage the surface and lead to premature wear. It is crucial to use gentle cleaning products specifically designed for VCT floors to prevent damage.
Dirt & Grime
The intricate textures and seams in VCT floors can trap dirt and grime, making achieving a thorough clean with only a casual pass more challenging. That’s why a routine cleaning with the right product is necessary to prevent debris from scratching the surface or getting embedded in the tiles themselves.
