Guide to Stripping and Refinishing Tiles

 

 

Stripping and refinishing floors in not like simple cleaning.  The appeal of your vinyl composite tile will be lost if your do not maintain it properly.

 

Restoring your tiles involves stripping the old finish and putting on fresh coatings that will match the type of tile that you are using.  A restored tile looks clean and clear.  When a tile is restored its coating emits a reflective light that makes it more beautiful and you floor becomes slip-resistant and safe.  Another benefit you get in properly coating your tile after stripping is that it gets the protection underneath and this will cost a lot more than the cost of regularly stripping and coating your tiles.

 

But, if you use the services of an outdated service provider it would also be costly and a waste of time since with them your tiles will only look good for a few months and then look dull and unsightly again instead of doing it properly which will make you tiles look great for a long time, even years.  There are proper methods of tile maintenance which would make your tiles look great longer.

Do not be in a hurry to hire janitorial services to wax your floors.  Waxing floors in the facility floor maintenance industry has not been commonly used since 1950.  The reasons for this is because tile floors of today are now protected by acrylic co-polymer metal-interlock formulations or its variant types.  This only goes to show that any floor waxing company advertising this kind of service is obviously either behind the times of modern terminology or worst, likely still utilizing that kind of approach and techniques with inferior results.  The expertise of professional tile waxing services that advertise their advancements are made obsolete by the paradigm shift which made them just that.

 

When one is resilient it is able to endure even when something lands of in.  When it comes to resilient flooring, it is not that it is tough or hard, but it means that it is capable of returning to its original shape or position after it has been compressed.  Therefore, compared to those truly hard floor surfaces like stone which are referred to as non-resilient, resilient flooring can seem somewhat "cushiony" when you walk on it.  And because resilient flooring is usually a mixture of fillers, binders, and color -applying acrylic coating can create a substantial damage when you infuse a chemical substance that is not compatible with the type of tile that you are using.

It is not only enough to choose any floor stripping company that does not wax, but pick a stripping company with extensive experience in coating acrylic type variants that match your floor type.
