What is vinyl?….

Vinyl flooring is made of layers of special plastics, as it is softer than some other hard flooring it does have a tendency to scratch easily, therefore we would advise that an acrylic sealer is applied on top of a newly laid vinyl floor. This application is known as a sacrificial coating, and will withstand heavy through traffic for several months, after this time the coating will need to be stripped back again and a new fresh coast of sealer or polish will need to be applied to the vinyl flooring.

Regular maintenance to a vinyl floor is essential to keep it looking at its best.

Using the correct cleaning tools and solutions is important to ensure the longevity of your vinyl floor.  Before polishing can commence a complete cleaning and drying is necessary. Polishing is done using a rotary floor polisher, this will help to maintain the high sheen of the vinyl floor.  If you do not complete this process of burnishing the vinyl floor it will lose its high gloss sheen.

Here are some images to illustrate the difference that cleaning and polishing a vinyl floor can make:
