    How to Clean and Maintain Your Resilient Floor
    What is a resilient floor?   As defined by the Resilient Floors Institute (RFCI): Resilient flooring is defined as "a non-woven flooring that is resilient to the touch and has the property of recovering from repeated compression."   Unlike cement-based surfaces such as polished concrete, terrazzo, dry-shake concrete floor, ceramic tile, and stone floors, it appears to be elastic, but it's nothing to do with  "bounce" actually. It is very popular in education, healthcare, logistics warehousing and transportation industries since it can prevent deep slippery injuries when people fall compared to hard floor surfaces.   From the material point of view, the elastic floor is divided into homogeneous structure and heterogeneous structures. Homogeneous means that the resilient floor is a single layer of material from top to bottom, such as rubber floor, VCT (Vinyl Ceramic Tile), Cork and heterogeneous refers to a flooring structure with layers (multi-layers), typically each layer of products has a separate chemical reaction, such as LVT (Luxury Vinyl Tile with rich decorative patterns).   What types of resilient surfaces are there? For example: · PVC · Linoleum · Rubber floor · Vinyl floors such as VCT and LVT · Epoxy resin floor   What are the characteristics of resilient floors? Resilient floors such as PVC and epoxy resin floors have the characteristics of elasticity, safety, acid and alkali resistance, wear resistance, pressure resistance, impact resistance, mildew resistance, waterproof, dustproof, easy maintenance and cleaning, etc., so they are widely used in commercial scenarios Medical and health industries such as hospitals, nursing homes, educational institutions such as schools, property communities, transportation institutions such as airports, trains, and industrial scenes such as pharmaceutical factories, electronics factories, warehousing and logistics industries, etc.     What are common maintenance challenges and solutions for resilient floors?   The most popular resilient floor in Europe is PVC, Linoleum and Rubber floor but in North America, it should be VCT and LVT. Taking the PVC floor as an example, the main cleaning and maintenance challenges are:   1. The floor stripping works as usual rely too much on the floor stripper chemical agent, which is costly, has an terrible smell, is harmful to the human body, and requires high experience and skills of the operators. It relies too much on labor, and if the floor wax removal water is not completely removed then it will bring out the secondary damage, resulting in color spots and other problems. 2. The floor is severely worn due to the flow of people, there are many scratches on the ground, and the wax surface is seriously worn out. 3. The daily cleaning of the floor is difficult to continue, and there is a lack of scientific overall solutions and standards.     For the application of flo...
