    Default VCT - How do i clean it and seal it?

    I have researched this topic as I have unsealed VCT in my house. Newly installed. I am trying to learn how to clean it and seal it. Every "How-To" I have found is different. Any "professionals" have any answers they care to share? thanks in advance

    I'm no expert, but when I was a kid I worked in a Hospital, and the floors were stripped ( I believe a stripper chemical) and then waxed. I believe the stripping was done by putting down the stripper and then going over it with a machine (orbital). I believe the wax was put down with mop, and then buffed after some drying time.

    sorry, it's been a long time...my memory might be incorrect and who knows if this is still the way they do it today.

    You can use an acrylic "wax" like Future, which is still available almost anywhere. But I bet there's a commercial finish that's a lot better. On the bottle of future it says it's removed with ammonia cleaner.
