Types of Flooring We Care For
At Professional Building Maintenance Inc we specialize in all types of floor resurfacing and commercial floor care services including stone, marble, and granite. However, what really makes us stand above the rest is our ability to strip, seal, and refinish VCT and or vinyl composition tile. Throughout each step in the process, we work to preserve the durability of your flooring and the look while also extending its life.
VCT or vinyl composition tile is typically the flooring you will see in places like Target. It is a 12×12 vinyl square tile that requires maintenance services such as stripping and refinishing over time as well as regularly scheduled maintenance such as burnishing, top scrubbing, and refinishing. By scheduling these commercial floor care services regularly you will be able to extend the life of your flooring, saving you money over time. If you are taking the time to protect your vinyl composition tile by burnishing, top scrubbing, and refinishing then you are less likely to have to schedule stripping and refinishing services.
Having to strip and refinish your flooring requires harmful chemicals and can greatly affect the people who come in and out of your building. At PBM we specialize in floor maintenance programs that allow you to schedule a time that works for you
Stone and Marble Honing
When it comes to caring for your stone and marble surfaces, it is rare to find a company that offers these services in-house, and at PBM we offer these services on a very large scale. Hotel lobbies are a great example of where you can find this type of flooring and are oftentimes damaged by people who do not have the knowledge required to clean and maintain the stone, marble, and granite.
Stone is supposed to remain chemical free so that they can breathe. And when it comes to stone flooring it typically suffers from one of two things.
- Owners who put wax on it because they don’t want to pay for the correct maintenance services.
- Owners who are not versed in the proper process and use the same chemicals and processes used to strip VCT flooring which actually ends up staining the stone.
These are both huge problems because it creates a surface that now has to be burnished, top scrubbed, and refinished.
Achieving the luster and almost wet appearance on your stone flooring happens by honing the surface with diamond blades on a weighted machine. This helps to refract light off of the stone and gives you a surface that is sparkling and slip-resistant.

Tile and Grout
When it comes to commercial floor care for your tile and grout surfaces, it follows the same basic premise as stone and marble. Tile is either ceramic or conglomerate which means it is man-made through the utilization of different types of stone and materials. If the proper practices are not used for cleaning your tiled surfaces can quickly become a skating rink, posing a threat to you, your employees, clients, and customers.
Tile needs to be steam cleaned and sealed for proper maintenance and at PBM we use our truck-mounted steam cleaning system to achieve a clean and safe surface.
Oftentimes we find tile surfaces that are highly deteriorated and neglected which is why it is important to schedule regular tile and grout floor care services to keep your flooring looking fresh.

The PBM Commercial Floor Care Process
During the restoration process communication is key. This is why we make sure to keep you informed from the very beginning of you services up until the very end.
We will first begin your commercial floor care services by inspecting your floors. We do this in order to identify any pre-existing conditions or damage so we can determine the best cleaning method for your flooring.
After that, we will test a small area of your floor to make sure there are no adverse reactions to our EPA-approved cleaning products.
Step three is where we begin to deep clean your flooring to remove any dirt, stains, and grime with our specialized commercial floor care cleaning products.
Finally, we will apply the appropriate floor finish in order to protect and extend the life of your floors.
