Why do VCT floors need to be Stripped & Waxed?
Vinyl composite tile, or VCT, periodically needs a floor wax finish applied. Sometimes the old sealer needs to be removed or stripped off, and then 4 to 8 coats of new sealer are applied. VCT has a porous surface; if not properly sealed, it will develop stains reducing the floor's lifespan. VCT flooring in a busy commercial environment should last over 20 years if properly maintained.
Dirt and oils from foot traffic get trapped in the finish over time. It causes the floors to look less shiny and can even develop dark areas in high-traffic areas. To remedy this, Diamond Floor Solution offers two service levels: scrub & recoat and strip and wax.
Scrub & recoat involves deep scrubbing the floor with a heavy floor cleaning machine and applying one coat of sealer. Stripping and waxing consist of removing the old sealer and replacing it with 4 to 8 coats of new wax. In most high-traffic areas, we recommend having the floor stripped and waxed every 3 to 12 months and scrub & recoat every 1 to 3 months.
