4 Signs Your Need to Strip and Seal Your Vinyl Flooring


Workplaces are often high-traffic areas with people coming and going, which often means the floors begin to look dingy as dirt gets into the small grooves and ridges, leaving your lino vinyl floors looking dull and tired. To make your vinyl floors in your commercial space look new again, we recommend you begin with vinyl stripping, followed by a good seal.

What is Vinyl Floor Stripping? 

Vinyl floor stripping and sealing is the task of removing existing sealers and glue from some of the top layers of the floor depending on the condition. New coats are then applied and the new surface layer is resealed.

How long does the vinyl floor last?

While vinyl flooring last 3-10 years for residential properties, commercial ones usually benefit from resealing every 2 to 3 years.

Here are four signs to look out for that indicate you may need a professional team to strip and reseal your floors and get them looking good as new again!

  1. Worn out patches

Our shoes can be quite abrasive, especially when dirt and dust are transferred inside and this combination of factors in a high-traffic area can really make a mark on your floors. It almost erodes’ them away, creating worn-out patches that indicate your floors are in need of some TLC.

  1. A matte appearance

General wear and tear on vinyl flooring can make what once was a beautiful, shiny surface, look duller and ‘matte’ in appearance. Usually, this is due to the shiny sealant on the surface slowly being worn away. Resealing your floors is a great remedy for this!

  1. Chips, scratches, and dents

When vinyl floors are protected by a sealant, it prevents the vinyl below from becoming damaged however, it does not mean the sealant itself is immune to damage. Over time, (particularly in an office environment), you may notice some minor damage such as chips, scratches, and dents, indicating stripping and resealing is required.

  1. It looks dirty

Sometimes, no matter how much you clean your floors, they just don’t have that clean and shiny look they once did. The good news is that a simple strip and seal job can have them looking good as new in no time!
