Summertime Shine: Maintaining Your VCT, LVT and Gym Floors with HJS Supply
As summer rolls around, building managers and cleaning professionals face the challenge of keeping floors looking pristine amidst increased foot traffic and the general hustle and bustle of the season. At HJS Supply Company, we have the expert knowledge and the right products to help you maintain the look and longevity of your floors. In this post, we will share essential tips for summer floor maintenance, focusing on Vinyl Composition Tile (VCT), Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) and gym floors.
VCT and LCT Floor Care
First, let’s start with VCT and LVT. These types of flooring are popular due to their durability and aesthetic appeal. However, without proper maintenance, they can dull over time. One of our highly recommended solutions for maintaining these floors is Betco’s Hard As Nails floor finish.
Betco Hard As Nails is an exceptional product, uniquely formulated with internally cross-linked polymers. This creates a harder, high-gloss floor finish that cures faster and harder than any other metal-interlock finish. It’s a labor-saving advantage, especially for schools and retail facilities with little or no time for floor burnishing. This product can also be used on other types of resilient tiles and properly sealed hard surfaces such as marble and terrazzo.
Here’s how you can achieve restorative maintenance with Hard as Nails:
- Completely remove all old wax, finish, and soil from the floor surface following the strip procedure instructions on the stripper label.
- Ensure that the floor surface is clean, dry, and free of residue before applying the finish. Rinse with clean water if necessary.
- Apply the finish in uniform, thin to medium coats using a clean synthetic finish mop or applicator system.
- Allow each coat to dry thoroughly before applying additional coats, typically 20 – 30 minutes. Remember, elevated temperatures and humidity may extend the drying time.
Elevating Gym Floor Care
For gym floors and other low maintenance flooring, Betco’s Elevate Multiple Surface System is the go-to solution. This system is designed to clean, protect and extend the life of no- and low-maintenance flooring products, such as vinyl tile, linoleum, rubber and laminate. The advanced technology of Elevate keeps floors looking cleaner for longer, thereby extending the flooring life cycle and saving you money by protecting the low maintenance wear layer.
