What is VCT Flooring and How Is It Removed?
There are many different types of tile out there, each with its own composition and method of installation. VCT, or vinyl composition tile, is a type of man made sheet flooring that has been sold since the early 1980’s and is most popular in large commercial settings thanks to the affordable price. VCT is a form of vinyl flooring made out of colored polyvinyl chloride (PVC) chips that are pressed with heat and pressure to form solid sheets. the resulting tiles are large in size and have a cheaper price point than some other forms of flooring.
VCT flooring tiles come in many different colors and patterns, some of which mimic the look of other flooring materials, like marble tile or hardwood. VCT flooring is often a good choice for corporate or industrial settings as it is cost effective and durable. The biggest problem with VCT flooring is that it does not age well, and tends to break down over time, leaving worn looking spots, patches and peeling. After being in place for a long period, the flooring can become very brittle, and tiles can move around and become displaced, exposing the thinset underneath. This can be a hazard and liability in a commercial setting, so it is best to call a professional VCT flooring removal service as soon as you see tiles slipping out of place. With the VCT surface removed, you can have new flooring installed as soon as the next day.
Experienced VCT Flooring Removal
VCT removal can be particularly messy and difficult, so hiring a licensed and insured crew to work on your property is the best way to minimize the time needed and get the job done. Without the proper tools and equipment, getting rid of VCT flooring can be a time consuming process that creates lots of debris and dust. Hiring an amateur service or contractor to get rid of this type of flooring can result in many headaches for you as the property owner. Some of the issues that handle to help make things easy for you include:
- Damage Prevention: Amateur removal of VCT tiles can potentially cause damage to the rest of your home or property. Our crews come ready to protect themselves and your property, with protective gear, plastic sheets, aluminum ramps and dust containment units. Each of these items helps us to keep your property safe and clean as we work.
- Dust Protection: Removing VCT flooring can potentially create a lot of dust, and without the benefit of experience and planning, the dust can spread throughout your home or business. This can be hazardous to your family or employees and cause allergies to flare up. We prevent this by using dust containment units, plastic sheets and pulse vaccums to ensure the dust stays in one place and gets cleaned up before we leave.
- Waste Disposal: Once the VCT tiles are removed, they need to be disposed of properly. With a fleet of waste removal trucks at our disposal, we ensure no debris stays on your property. We have the ability to dispose of the VCT tile in a safe manner, and will ultimately ensure that it is recycled.
- Thinset Removal: Often, flooring is set in place with a layer of thinset, a type of mortar that keeps the flooring in place. This layer has to be properly removed in order for a new flooring surface to be laid. Our crews use grinders to ensure all of the thin set is gone and the concrete subfloor is left smooth
