Floor Maintenance

At AFC Cleaning & Restoration, we have built a solid reputation for excellent service for all of our clients’ needs. Your flooring is an integral part of your home or business, both practically and aesthetically, and as such it is important to keep them clean, attractive, ad well maintained. By offering regular cleaning and maintenance, we can help your property look great and continue making good first impressions. When it comes to Vinyl Composition Tile, or VCT flooring, we offer first-rate, top-quality stripping and waxing services.

VCT is a porous material that may become permanently discolored due to the presence of ground in dirt, dust, and other particulate matter. A premium floor finish should be applied to protect the VCT, and once done, some entry mats can be put down around interior doors. This will catch up to 75% of the dirt that gets tracked into your property every day! Dust mopping on a regular basis also prevents dirt from becoming embedded into the flooring finish. Change mop water often, since using dirty water can often have undesired effects.

AFC Cleaning & Restoration is the premiere restoration provider in Kansas, locally owned and operated for over a decade. We recognize the problems presented by damage to your flooring and tiles, and the long-term consequences of not dealing with the problem in a timely and efficient manner. We are committed to providing the highest level of customer service and satisfaction, and we treat every job with the care and attention to detail that it deserves.

Strip and wax is necessary when the old floor finish has been worn down from failure to properly maintain the finish through top scrubs or other improper floor maintenance. A stripper solution is used to emulsify the old finish from the tile, and a powered low rpm buffer brought to bear to remove the finish completely. The floor is then neutralized with cold water to seal the pores in the surface. The last step in the process is to lay down 3 or 4 coats of premium floor finish.

For proper care of VCT flooring and tiles, it is recommended that you sweep and mop the flooring daily, and buff them with a high speed buffer at least once a month. VCT flooring should be stripped and waxed every year, and scrubs and recoats can be performed in the absence of stripping and waxing about every six months.

Mopping should be performed with cold water and a neutral cleaner, since hot water on a VCT floor can cause the wax to start peeling up. In the best case scenario, it gives the wax a cloudy and unattractive appearance. Refrain from using harsh chemicals or cleaners on VCT, as bleach or ammonia products will strip wax off the floor in no time. If you are unable to obtain a neutral cleaner, plain cold water will suffice. For proper flooring maintenance, professional cleaning is recommended to keep the tiles and flooring looking clean and new.

    Craig and Patti, I want to thank you and your crew for doing a terrific job on sanding and refinishing the wood floors in our living room, dining room and stairs. They had gotten so dingy, and worn out; and after five dogs over the years, they were quite scratched. Now they look fantastic, they are smooth, the color is perfect and wood grain is so rich. I am not sure I even want to put any rugs down.
