Why Would I Hire a Maryland VCT Cleaner?

Apr 4, 2018

Vinyl composition tile, or VCT for short, is a finished flooring material that is known for its durability, ease of installation, and affordable cost. Because of its benefits, it is an optimal flooring choice for commercial buildings and spaces.

Commercial spaces are usually a lot busier than residential homes and are considered “high-traffic” locations. This means more wear on your flooring, as well as frequent scuffs, scratches, dirt and stains. Unfortunately, a simple Swiffer duster or mop and bucket won’t do much when it comes to cleaning vinyl composition tile flooring.

VCT flooring is best cleaned using a method that involves stripping, waxing, and polishing. The equipment and cleaning products needed for this type of commercial cleaning are costly, and usually difficult or frustrating to use if you’re not a professional cleaner.

Why Would I Hire a Maryland VCT Cleaner?

What YOU Can Do

There are a few things you can do to be proactive in maintaining the quality and cleanliness of your vinyl composition tile flooring:

  • Clean up messes and spills as soon as they happen. If not cleaned up immediately, they can become a safety hazard and will be more difficult to clean the longer they are allowed to sit.
  • Use a vacuum cleaner for big, solid messes before using any liquid cleaner.
  • Use floor mats in areas with high traffic that are exposed to outdoor elements, like entryways and exits.


The stip/wax/polish method consists of the following steps:

  1. Our technicians will remove debris from the VCT floor’s surface, like trash, dirt, and gum.
  2. They will then apply a solution to the floor that helps to dissolve wax and oils.
  3. A buffing machine, operated by a professional cleaner, will aggressively scrub the floor with a pad at a low speed.
  4. Dissolved buildup is then removed by rinsing with an automated squeegee.
  5. Finally, coats of sealer or floor finish are applied.

Having your VCT floors professionally cleaned on a regular basis helps to ensure that the floors have a durable layer of wax that provides the protection your high-traffic commercial building needs.

"WOW, WOW, WOW. I don't know what else to say. With two dogs and a 2 year old running around the house, our carpets and furniture need cleaning on a regular basis. It's nice to know that all I need to do is pick up the phone and I have no more worries. In this day and age, it is a very pleasant surprise to come across a company who will do what they say they will do when they say they will do it and with very little supervision.
