VCT Flooring – Are You Considering It? If So You Should Read This Post Before You Do.

VCT flooring might not be a wise choice for your flooring needs. Read why below to learn more.

VCT Flooring With Danger Symbol Over ItVCT Flooring With Caution Floor Wet Sign
VCT flooring is probably not your best bet for a quality floor for your business. There are a myriad of reasons why this is so, but here are a few of them:

First you should know what VCT flooring is. VCT stands for vinyl composite tile. You should be aware that your floor will need preparation prior to installation of VCT, as it is not a seamless product. Since it is not seamless, it will unfortunately allow all manner of bacteria to grow underneath it, causing dangerous growths, odors and eventually require costly removal of the product. You will also need to regularly strip and wax your flooring.

Because it is made of separate pieces of tile, often VCT flooring has been known to buckle. This in turn creates unsightly bulges in the tile, as well as presenting a trip hazard besides allowing bacteria to grow under it. VCT flooring is also very slippery when wet creating a hazard for your business.

You also need to be aware that many of the products utilized to glue down vinyl composite tile produce noxious fumes that may be dangerous to those laying down the product as well as anyone in the building. These fumes are called Volatile Organic Compounds usually referred to as VOCs when speaking of flooring fumes.

If instead of VCT flooring, you should examine Silikal, you will be happy to find that it is totally seamless, thus the introduction of anything being allowed to seep under it has been rendered impossible. Therefore a Silikal floor will never buckle due to growths beneath it. Best yet, Silikal is a totally VOC free product. Actually it is certified to be a non-VOC product!

Being seamless allows for the easiest cleaning possible, and you will never have to strip nor wax this floor. It stays beautiful as the day it was laid for you.
