A friend of mine who owns a print shop in Castroville, CA recently expanded and bought a new building. I like eating at the Giant Artichoke restaurant and the city of Castroville is a nice town to pass through when going to my favorite beach in Moss Landing. With this in mind, I was thrilled when my friend called me to help him out. He needed emergency service and there was no problem scheduling a janitor to handle the job. The new building was actually an old print shop and my friend took over the building along with the existing book of business. The building was first constructed in 1932 and had a solid concrete foundation but the vinyl, tile or ceramic (VTC) floor had been removed and was now bare concrete. He asked if I could handle the floor the same day he called. I took a look at the area in question and told him the floor needed to be scrubbed, sealed and waxed. So then, the janitor scrubbed the floor with a low-speed auto scrubber and then used a water vacuum with a front squeegee to pick up the dirty water. After that, the janitor mopped up the remaining stripper with clean water. Once dry, two coats of floor sealer where applied and then five coats of wax.
I stopped by after church to check out the job. My friend was very pleased with how his shop floor turned out so shiny and bright. In summary, no matter what the flooring surface, it can be cleaned and made more presentable with proper techniques and professional processes. Everything factors into the final result of floor care and maintenance. From the speed of your scrubber, the appropriate scrubbing pad, chemical products and machinery, a good janitorial company will put together the right combination for your VCT floor resulting in superior levels of service and customer satisfaction.
