VCT Floor Stripping and Waxing
Floors take a lot of abuse from us, and even if we aren’t intentionally abusing them, simply walking back and forth on them, especially in high-traffic areas, takes a toll. Floors will vary with age, regardless of what you do. However, by properly caring for them with VCT floor stripping and waxing, you may extend their functional life and preserve their look, allowing them to live longer and cost you less over time. Stone floors, vinyl flooring, hardwood floors, and urethane-finished floors require regular upkeep. But, how can you improve the efficiency of your floor maintenance? Depending on your needs, professional vct floor stripping and waxing once or twice a year may be the solution.
At Exclusive Cleaning Services, we believe that stripping and waxing floors are an important part of keeping your facility clean and presentable. High-traffic areas are prone to dirt and grit and this can give an otherwise beautiful floor an appearance that leaves a lot to be desired.
Why is Stripping and Waxing Floors Necessary?
The outcome of stripping and waxing floors is a lustrous surface that provides your building with a clean appearance. The less visible reasons are more practical; vct floor stripping and waxing remove dirt and grime. The procedure establishes a buffer between the floor and any potential damage. This protective layer also reduces the likelihood of moisture or water damage leading the floor to be damaged and deformed.
The procedure of stripping and waxing also aids in the maintenance of the floor. After waxing, the layer remains protects the floor from wear, dirt, and scratches. It is due to the finish’s polymers, which form an invisible layer on your floor’s surface that protects it by acting as a lubricant between two objects rubbing against one other, such as furniture or other heavy materials.
How Often Should a Floor be Stripped And Waxed?
The frequency with which you should strip and wax your floor is dependent on its level of wear; nonetheless, stripping and waxing your facility’s floors once or twice a year gets advised. Schools should consider Striping and waxing floors during the summer and winter recesses. Because school floors see a lot of foot traffic and get subjected to wear and tear, they should get cleaned regularly. If your facility’s floors are exposed to high wear and tear or receive as much foot traffic as a school, you should consider a regular VCT floor stripping and waxing program. Floors in high-traffic commercial spaces, such as restaurants and retail businesses, should be stripped and waxed annually or every six to twelve months.
What is the Time Framework for Stripping and Waxing?
Most floors can be stripped and waxed in a day depending on the size of the area being stripped and waxed; however, big projects, such as schools, can take weeks, which is why these projects get completed during the summer and winter recesses. Overall, the chemical stripping method takes around fifteen minutes to sit before applying agitation to the floors; once the wax is applied, it cures overnight and is ready to use the next day.
A low-odor stripping chemical should get utilized in more sensitive settings, such as a hospital or nursing home. Because the process is done by stripping and waxing one side of the floor at a time, hospitals and nursing homes often take longer to strip and wax their floors.
How do you strip and wax VCT flooring?
Stripping down old floor finishes is considered a very detailed skill. We first start by accessing the floor surfaces for wear and tear. Determining the condition of the floors to be stripped play a big role in how to service the floor correctly. Typically, when stripping a floor all the old finish needs to be removed by applying a concentrated floor stripper. Once this is done and the old finish is removed, we then apply a neutral floor cleaner to remove any residue that the stripper has left behind. After this step, we assure that the floor is completely dried and start prepping to apply a 25% solids floor finish. Floor finishes can range from 22%-33% solids, depending on the foot traffic and use of the floor that will be finished. When the floor is ready for finish, we apply anywhere from 5 to 6 coats of floor finish to provide a high gloss shine and protectant. The floor should be burnished after the 3rd coat of finish has been applied.
How much does it cost to strip and wax VCT?
The cost to strip and finish VCT can vary depending on the region. You can expect to pay anywhere from .35 -.75 sqft. For Example, if you have a 2500 sqft floor, you can expect to pay anywhere from $875.00-$1875.00
How often should you strip and wax VCT flooring?
This question tends to come up quite often, VCT floors should be stripped at least once a year, and get scrubbed and recoated in between stripping. Scrub and recoats should be done every 6 months depending on use and foot traffic.
How long does it take to strip and wax 1000 square feet?
Typically speaking a 1000 square foot can take as long as 4-6 hours to complete depending on the equipment that is being used.
