Hard Floor Maintenance

Maintaining your hard surface flooring extends the life of the floor. The maintenance necessary depends on the type of flooring and the amount of foot traffic the floor encounters. KB employs hard floor experts that can create a floor maintenance program specific to your needs.

 

Strip and Wax

Stripping and waxing applies to Vinyl Composite Tile (VCT) and should be completed on either annual or every other year basis. For a strip and wax, all previous coats of wax are removed from the VCT flooring, the floor is scrubbed and then all new coats of wax are laid. The wax protects the flooring and also provides shine.

 

Scrub and Recoat

Scrubbing and recoating applies to Vinyl Composite Tile (VCT) and is completed on the opposite rotation of a strip and wax. For a scrub & recoat, the top two layers of wax are removed from the VCT flooring, the floor is scrubbed and then two new coats of wax are laid.

 

Burnish

Burnishing applies to Vinyl Composite Tile (VCT) and is meant to bring back the shine and “new-ness” of the flooring. Burnishing re-ignites the top layer of wax and makes the floor “pop” in between the strip & wax and scrub & recoat floor services.

 

Marble Polish

Marble polishing applies to marble flooring and should be completed on an annual or bi-annual basis. Marble polishing buffs the marble and brings back the luster of the natural marble.

 

Rotoscrub

Rotoscrubbing applies to all types of stone or ceramic tile. This type of tile is most common in restrooms and should be completed on a quarterly or bi-annual basis. Rotoscrubbing is the use of a low-speed floor machine with an intensifying chemical that allows a deep scrub of the tile and the grout.

 

Seal Grout

Sealing the grout applies to all types of stone or ceramic tile, or any tile that is grouted. Sealing the grout should be completed annually and in conjunction with a rotoscrub. Sealing the grout provides a barrier on the grout for potential stains, which in turn prevents discoloration in the grout.
