VCT (Vinyl Composition Tile) in Poor Condition

A residential basement in Detroit, Michigan had resilient flooring that had seen better days. Even though it was relatively clean, it looked incredibly dirty because of scratching, dullness, and stains. It hadn't been refinished in years and the old coating had mostly worn away.

Our Vinyl Stripping, Cleaning, and Refinishing Process

This type of flooring is made of limestone, a thermoplastic binder, fillers and pigments. We applied a stripper to loosen and dissolve what was left of the old coating. We rinsed away the residue with cold water and a neutral cleaner. Then we used professional strength cleaning solutions and a floor machine mounted with heavy duty scrubbers to put pressure on the tile and ensure a deep and thorough cleaning. Once the floor was completely dry, we applied a new coat of finish, allowed it to dry, buffed the floor, and applied a second coat.

The homeowners were very pleased with the results.
