VCT Stripping & Waxing
OUR 7 STEP PROCESS
Step #1 – Dry Mop All Areas
Sand, grit and dirt abrade the floor and finish on your VCT Tile. Before we apply our wet stripping agent we take the time to dry mop all areas to remove as much of that loose soil as possible.
Step #2 – Wax Stripper Applied
The high quality stripper we use penetrates deep to help loosen the old wax and soil. This prepares the VCT Tile for our next step.
Step #3 – Floor Machine Used To Agitate The Stripper
Our 175 RPM floor machine is used with an aggressive black stripping pad to loosen and suspend the old wax and soil for easy removable.
Step #4 – Commercial Wet-Dry Vacuum Used To Remove Most of the Stripping Solution
After suspending the old wax and soil we use our wet-dry vacuum to remove the majority of this solution.
Step #5 – High Pressure Turbo Tool Used To Thoroughly Clean Floor
One of the keys to a great finished look is getting the floor spotlessly clean before the application of the floor finish.
Most other companies will use a mop and bucket to try to get the floor thoroughly clean. Many times this just pushes the soil that remains around on the floor.
We use our high pressure Turbo Tool to accomplish this step. The Turbo Tool cleans the floor with high pressure water (1,000 PSI) while vacuuming the water and excess soil away at the same time.
We further take the time to detail the edges with a towel to ensure a spotlessly clean floor to receive the application of floor finish.
Step #6 – Application Of Celebrity Floor Finish
Celebrity Floor Finish is a high solids (35%) finish that gives a shiny wet-look finish. Three coats are required to give 100% coverage. We like to go the extra mile in all we do and will apply four to five coats of finish to give your floor that desired shine and extra durable finish.
Step #7 – High Speed Burnishing
The four to five coats of Celebrity Floor Finish will give your VCT Tile a very shiny, wet-look, durable finish. If you would like to take the floor to the next level of shine we recommend using the 1600 RPM High Speed Burnisher.
