We will make your vinyl floors look brand new and last longer
There is a reason why vinyl flooring is extremely popular in residential, commercial, medical, school, and even industrial spaces – they are relatively cheap and can handle a lot of abuse, even in high foot traffic areas. However, like other materials, they are not indestructible.
Vinyl floors need care and cleaning to keep them looking their best. And while anyone can easily clean vinyl floors, not a lot of people have access to special cleaning agents, equipment, and tools to do large-scale vinyl floor cleaning on a regular basis. This is where we come in.
Why get professional vinyl and flooring cleaning services
A well-maintained vinyl floor (meaning stripped and resealed) can last longer. This is always our goal – to get you the best bang-for-buck from your flooring.
Any cracks or signs of damage in vinyl can create a tripping hazard and become a breeding ground for harmful bacteria and other contaminants. This is why vinyl floors need to get routine cleaning and resealing for both cleanliness and safety.
However, the whole process of cleaning, stripping, and re-sealing is not only labor-intensive – it requires knowledge, as well as the right cleaning agents and equipment. Not to mention the patience, precision, and expertise required to do things right and avoid damage. Our expert cleaners are trained, experienced, and equipped to do just that. They can deliver amazing results fast and efficiently so you do not have to worry about your vinyl flooring ever again.
Stripping, re-sealing, and getting your vinyl floors fresh and ready
Cleanworks knows the value of high-quality service. With more than 20 years of experience in the professional commercial cleaning industry, our floor care specialists have the knowledge and technical know-how, along with the right equipment and tools to clean, restore, and protect vinyl flooring to help extend their lifespan.
Vinyl is an extremely popular choice of flooring for high-traffic environments, particularly those with an increased risk of liquid spills. With a little TLC, they can endure a lot of punishment and retain their looks for many years – the secret is to periodically replace the hard layer of polish which protects the relatively soft vinyl beneath.
With time this top coat absorbs all of the scuffs and scratches while also gradually wearing thin. The good news is that a well-executed vinyl strip and seal will leave most floors looking new.
How we do it
Vinyl is quite different from other flooring materials like tiles or wood. This means their maintenance and care are quite different compared to others.
The TLC for vinyl flooring starts by removing the layer of hardened sealer. This is where we use a combination of scrubbing to eliminate impurities, followed by a chemical solvent that completely erodes the old surface.
Next, we follow it up with scrubbing using a special machine scrubber to ensure the vinyl underneath is clean before several layers of sealer are then carefully applied and buffed so that your floors are not only well-protected by looking their best!
Stripping and resealing a floor may not be rocket science, however, there are all manner of problems which can arise if it is performed by an inexperienced or impatient technician. A rushed or careless application can result in an uneven surface or with hardened sealer splashed up the side of walls; too little sealant can result in a weak protective layer that exposes your underlying vinyl to permanent damage, and poorly managed solvents can easily damage surrounding carpets and create health hazards.
With more than two decades of professional commercial cleaning under our belt, we have seen everything. We have performed thousands of vinyl floor strips and seals for all manner of businesses, ranging from schools and childcare centres to doctor’s offices and supermarkets.
We guarantee every vinyl floor strip and seal we perform and will repeat the job if you are at all unsatisfied. Our seasoned professionals are adept at applying strips and seals with care and precision, which enables us to not only promise fantastic results but also makes us capable of doing so at extremely competitive prices.
This depends on a lot of factors, such as the size of the area that needs to be resealed, the condition of the vinyl floor, and more. While it is difficult to provide a firm quote upfront, you should know that we have a very flexible service, and we can work together based on your budget.
Stripping is the process of taking the existing sealant out to apply a new layer of coating. This is a way to make vinyl flooring look brand new.
This also depends on a lot of factors, such as the amount of foot traffic the flooring gets, its current condition, etc. For commercial vinyl floors, they should be resealed every year or two. Residential vinyl floors can get by with 4 to 10 years before needing to be resealed.
Vinyl floorings, though largely durable, are not invincible. They require daily maintenance of light sweeping and mopping to keep them clean. You can use a detergent and cold or warm water to mop this flooring. Some people also prefer to add vinegar to their cleaning solution.
When removing stains or stubborn grime, make sure to use a microfiber cloth when brushing the floor. Never use large, high-powered equipment as this can easily scratch and damage vinyl floors.
