Following VCT installation
It’s important to note, VCT comes with a protective layer that is only for
shipping and installation purposes. The initial, protective layer of
VCT does not protect the floor once it is installed. Wait five days
for the tiles to settle and the glue to properly cure. After five days, you
should have a professional clean the VCT flooring to remove the factory’s
protective layer, and apply an appropriate amount of protective finish on the
floor. *It is important to have protective finish before contents are moved
back into the area.
VCT floor cleaning and maintenance
When cleaning the floors yourself, use a neutral cleaner (PH of 7)
for daily maintenance. However, it is still recommended to use a
professional cleaner 1-2 times/year.
Dust breaks down the finish, so it is best to sweep
and mop the floor every night (depending on traffic) to ensure your VCT
stays in the best condition.
Remember, having a professional floor cleaner is very different than
renting equipment for a do-it-yourself project. ServiceMaster uses
