By far the most widely sold vinyl flooring is the low maintenance type that is pre sealed in manufacture.
It is called low maintenance not because it doesn’t need cleaning but because it does not require polish and the associated tasks such as stripping and resealing and constant buffing. Without going into the technical reasons, the floor can be damaged by too much buffing. There are many examples where the cleaning process can be reduced by developing a maintenance program suited to the flooring and conditions. An automatic floor scrubber works very quickly cleaning the floor with clean water and recovering the dirty water in the one process. It reduces the amount of chemical being used, leaves the floor dry reducing slip hazards and removes dirt and stains that deteriorate the flooring. Similarly, mopping with microfibre reduces the amount of chemical required and leaves the floor almost dry. Low maintenance floors are not designed to have a high gloss so scrubbing or mopping is all the maintenance required with the occasional buff to bond the surface. Neutral pH detergents are essential and the water can be warm but not hot and most important the floor must be swept regularly to remove sand and grit than can scour the surface.
We can design a maintenance program to suit your floor and environment - just give us a call.
