Luxury Vinyl Tiles (LVT)
Whether used in a home or business setting, LTV flooring combines durability with aesthetic quality. There are now a number of companies manufacturing LVT however two of the most well-known are Karndean and Amtico.
This incredibly realistic look also offers additional benefits such as:
• They are warmer underfoot
• They are more cost-effective to install
• They can be more durable and longer lasting
• They are straightforward to install
• They boast relatively low maintenance
These vinyl-based floors have been cleverly designed to offer the appearance of other floor products, such as stone tiles or wood floors.
LVT flooring is well-suited to both domestic and commercial properties. This is further testament to their versatility. There are many variations available including different shapes and styles which allows the opportunity to create a unique statement.
As with any other floor, over time vinyl floors can become worn and in need of deep cleaning. Gerrards offer a comprehensive service to clean and restore your LVT floors. We offer a professional and efficient service that leaves your flooring looking like new. We have varied knowledge about these floor types which allows us to tailor our services based on your individual requirements.
How to tell if your LTV floors need cleaning or restoration
Most vinyl and tile manufacturers recommend weekly sweeping and dusting of this floor type, along with semi-regular professional cleaning to extend the floor’s lifespan for as long as possible.
How frequently you should professionally clean your LTV floor depends on a number of factors, including the amount of foot traffic it receives, and it’s worth keeping in mind that commercial premises tend to need this kind of upkeep more often than floors in the home.
There are a number of things to look out for when deciding to book a professional restoration of your LTV floor. Your local hard floor professional can help diagnose and resolve the following LTV floor care problems:
- Has your LTV flooring become dull and lifeless?
- Has the dressing or sealer become worn and tired looking?
- Have the builders or tradesmen left the floor looking dusty and patchy?
- Are you fed up of mopping the floor for it to quickly lose its lustre after it dries?
- Has it become scratched and dirty, with no amount of mopping or products making a difference?
- Are you looking to bring back that wonderful, just laid finish?

Ceramic floor tiles offer a durable, wipe-clean option for your floor spaces! They are available in patterned designs for a vintage look, realistic wood effects for a warm approach, or faux stones and concretes for a cool, trendy scheme.
Ceramic tiles are industrially produced from sand, natural products, and clays and once moulded into shape are then fired in a kiln. This makes it possible to strictly control the production in terms of solidity, scratch resistance, ease of maintenance and dimensional accuracy. In addition, print can be applied to ceramic tiles, even creating perfect imitations of natural stone. They can be finished either glazed or unglazed and are available in large numbers of colours and sizes.
HOW DO WE CLEAN YOUR CERAMIC TILED FLOORS?
- Step 1 – We survey the floor and discuss finish and shine level.
- Step 2 – Protect surrounding areas and sensitive surfaces with specialist low tack masking and protection.
- Step 3 – Cleaning solution is applied to the floor using a mop and left to dwell.
- Step 4 – Using a rotary machine with a variety of abrasive pads and brushes the tiles and grout are deep cleaned. This process is repeated as many times as required until the floor is fully stripped/clean. Edges and corners are finished by hand along with any grout lines that require extra cleaning.
- Step 5 – Fresh water rinsing and high-power vacuum to bring dirt solution into our specialist on board vacuum tanks.
- Step 6 – Speed dry floor and buff to remove footprints and leave a perfect blemish free floor.
- Step 7 – Once dry the floor it is ready to be sealed. We typically apply 3 – 4 coats depending on customer requirements. The finish can either be natural or gloss.
- Step 8 – Once dry the seal gives a protective coating to the tiles and grout that will help to prevent spillages and dirt getting ground in. Not only will the floor look great but daily cleaning and maintenance will be much easier, keeping your floor looking like new for longer.
- Step 9 – Customer walk round and inspection process, with full advice given for daily and weekly maintenance.
The floor can normally be walked on within an hour of the last coat of sealant being applied and the whole process can usually be completed within a day.
