Vinyl composition tile (VCT)
Vinyl composition tile (VCT) is a very durable choice if it is properly installed and maintained. The most important thing to do after installation is wax the floors. The concept behind this type of flooring is to never allow foot traffic to touch the floor. If the floor is properly waxed , foot traffic will only walk on the wax. A good coat of wax will also make for easier daily sweeping and mopping. It should also be noted that "wax" is an archaic term in this process as the product now used is an acrylic floor finish. It is often still referred to as wax among industry professionals.
