It is one thing to simply clean your floor, it is another to strip and refinish them. You must have seen those improperly maintained vinyl composite tile that are not appealing anymore.
Restoring efforts generally involve stripping old finish (not the tile) and laying down fresh coatings with the kind of finish that is compatible with the type of tile that you are using. A restored tile looks clean and clear. It is also attractive in a sense that the coating emits a reflective-light that make it more gorgeous, and switching your floor from being unsafe to a floor that is slip-resistant. Another advantage that one gets in properly coating your tile after stripping is that it protects the tile underneath – which cost a lot more than the cost it takes to strip and coat them regularly.
However, stripping finish every few months according to some outdated service providers would still spells waste of time and money because you could postpone this activity for years by keeping your floor in the same state instead of them becoming to look dull and unsightly after a few months. There are proper methods of tile maintenance which would make your tiles look great longer.
So whenever you are thinking of hiring a janitorial service offering floor waxing, think again. When maintaining floors for facilities waxing has not been commonly used since the 1950’s. Instead tile floors are now protected by acrylic co-polymer metal-interlock formulations or its variant types. This means that many floor waxing companies still advertising floor waxing is already behind the modern times and they are still using approaches and techniques which give inferior results. So don’t assume the company advertising their expertise in resilient tile “waxing” is really up-to-date, this progress is as good until this paradigm shift that made every advancement they make “obsolete”.
Also, resilient connotes tough and hard when one or something lands on it. When it comes to Office Cleaning Tampa, 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. It is very different from the truly hard floor surfaces like stone which are non-resilient, but when you have resilient flooring, you are like walking on a cushiony floor. A resilient flooring is made from a mixture of fillers, binders, and colors, and applying acrylic colors can get your tile flooring damaged since these are chemical substances that are not compatible to the tile you are using.
When you hire tile and grout cleaning Tampa company, it is just that they don’t wax but they should have experience in coating acrylic type variants that matches your floor type.
