Ceramic and quarried tile floors. 9 times out of 10 ceramic and quarried tile does not require much in the way of cleaning, in fact a simple mop will be just as good. The problem with tiles arises when after a while they start to look dull. The reason that tiles start looking dull is down to scratches appearing on their surface as their protective layer over time starts breaking down. This break down in the protective layer allows dirt to start accumulating in these scratches. This is where you will need an industrial polisher, or buffer, as these types of floor cleaners will remove the scratches from the tile, and thus the dirt with them, returning your tiles back to looking as if they have just been laid. The other area that can make your tiled flooring look dull and uninviting is not the tiles themselves as the tiles are not naturally porous and therefore don`t stain easily without scratches in them, but the grout used to secure them. This grout on the other hand is extremely porous and can be easily stained.
Vinyl or PVC floors. Vinyl is a type of resistant flooring which is waterproof and heard wearing. This type of flooring can normally be cleaned easily enough with traditional techniques. The problems with cleaning vinyl floors arise when persistent stains, or other hard to remove materials, start to appear that cannot be so easily wiped off, for example gum. Cleaning this kind of persistent substance off vinyl and PVC flooring requires using the right type of tools to accomplish this without damaging the floor in the process. This is where a floor polishers and buffers come into their own. The floor polisher pads allow persistent substances to be removed with out leaving scratches on your flooring after cleaning. The floor pads extension to the floor polishers should be used for vinyl or PVC flooring.
