FLOOR CARE

Below you will find useful information regarding options and care we provide for your wooden, ceramic, vct, stone, concrete and tile floors

 

VCT Vinyl Tile & Sheet Vinyl

 

Resilient floors come in many textures, colors and styles. These products are manufactured in two styles: sheet and tile.

 

VCT Vinyl Composition Tile: VCT comes in 12” tiles, is a porous floor material that can hold up well to strong alkalines, acid, and solvent spills and spots if cleaned up right away. Manufacturers recommend waiting 5 days after installation before doing any maintenance to the flooring. 

 

Sheet Vinyl: Sheet vinyl comes in 6’ to 12’ widths, available in many colors and styles. It is installed in both commercial and residential locations. 

 

Services we perform on VCT & Sheet Vinyl flooring:

            1. Initial restorative and salvage cleaning.

            2. Preventative procedures

            3. Establish daily, routine, and periodic floor maintenance programs

            4. Restorative cleaning (floor stripping)

           

 

Stone Floors

 

Many commercial buildings are now installing stone floors such as ceramic tile, granite, marble and terrazzo. Although these floors may not need the frequent care that resilient tile floors need, they still need to be maintained regularly in order to keep the stone and grout looking good. If not maintained properly, the floor and grout will start to look dull and dirty.

 

We will recommend a floor care program that is safe for the type of flooring you have in your building. The program we recommend will depend on traffic levels and desired appearance.

 

Marble flooring: Marble is a metamorphic stone and is one of the most expensive floor coverings made. 

 

Services we perform on marble flooring:

1. Daily and routine cleaning

2. Periodic and restorative cleaning

3. Periodic and restorative cleaning on finished marble floor (floor stripping & refinish)

 

Granite flooring: Granite is an igneous stone and contains many different minerals such as quartz, feldspar and potassium. 

 

Services we perform on Granite flooring:

1. Daily and routine cleaning

2. Periodic and restorative cleaning

 

Travertine Flooring: Travertine is a sedimentary stone, which has a lot of holes in it and must be filled with a synthetic resin or cement based product. 

 

Services we perform on Travertine flooring:

1. Daily and routine cleaning

2. Periodic and restorative cleaning (polishing)

3. Periodic and restorative cleaning with floor coating (floor stripping & refinish)

 

Slate flooring: Slate is a metamorphic stone, which comes in common colors such as black, gray, and green. It will have many finishes such as sand, rubbed and honed. 

 

Services we perform on Slate flooring:

1. Daily and routine cleaning

2. Periodic and restorative cleaning

 

Terrazzo flooring: Terrazzo was very popular in the 1950’s and 1960’s and we saw a comeback in the 1990’s. Terrazzo is made of 30% Portland cement mixed with about 70% marble or granite chips.

 

Services we perform on Terrazzo flooring:

Wood Floors

 

Solid Wood Flooring: Solid wood flooring is one complete piece of wood from top to bottom. It comes in strip sizes of 2” to 3” wide at random lengths or plank sizes that are 3” or 8” wide in a fixed or random width and length. Both are 3/4” thick with a wear layer of 1/8”.

 

Parquet wood flooring: Parquet wood flooring is usually a 12” x 12” square with endless choices of geometric designs such as standard, herringbone or Fontainebleau.

 

Engineered wood flooring: Engineered wood flooring comes in 3 to 5 layers of wood, laminated together with a cross-grain lamination construction that makes it more dimensionally stable (it does not expand and contract like a solid wood floor). 

 

Services we perform on solid wood, engineered wood & parquet wood flooring:

1. Daily maintenance

2. Periodic maintenance

3. Restoration (refinishing)

 

Laminate wood flooring: Laminate wood flooring is made from several layers of wood by-products bonded together under pressure. There is a surface layer in which a picture can be applied to the top and sealed with an aluminum oxide finish. Laminate wood flooring is easy to clean, difficult to stain, durable and long lasting if given proper care. For laminate flooring we establish just daily maintenance and periodic maintenance program.

 

Concrete Floors

 

Concrete is one of the least expensive floor types, yet it can take on a designer style and made to resemble brick, marble, wood, slate and many other floor types. Concrete can be stained, stamped, stenciled, dyed, painted and polished.

 

Services we perform on concrete floors:

1. Daily and routine cleaning

2. Periodic and restorative cleaning (power wash/pressure wash)

3. Restorative cleaning (floor stripping, sealing & finishing).

 

 

Ceramic Tile

 

Ceramic tile floors are installed in residential and commercial buildings, indoors and out. They are very durable and after the initial cleaning and sealing with an impregnator or penetrating sealer they can be low maintenance floors. 

 

Services we perform on ceramic tile and grout flooring:

1. Daily and routine cleaning

2. Periodic and restorative cleaning (floor scrubbing & sealing)
