A. Armstrong, for example, recommends cleaning the floor with a floor cleaner and then applying 3-5 coats of a finish containing 16%-22% solids such as Armstrong S-480 Commercial Floor Polish. Others are likely similar.
My experience has shown that a floor machine with a floor cleaner and green pad will remove additional scratches, black marks, and embedded soil much better than just mopping the floor. Always prep for finish by scrubbing.
On the East Coast, we usually see a range of 20 to 40 cents a square foot on new unoccupied VCT. The point spread is based on area, number of rooms, coats of finish, etc. 2K is considered small and 10K is considered large. We use an eight point scoring system in JanBid to zero in on the winning price.
