Vinyl composition tile is a popular choice for homeowners because it is durable, affordable and simple to install as a floor covering. VCT is produced by heating vinyl chips and applying pressure to form them into solid sheets which are cut into 12 inch squares. You can choose from different colors and styles to match your home décor. Regular cleaning keeps the tile shining and free of scuffs and scratches for long periods. When treatment is required to restore the shine to VCT, it is not a difficult project to clean and polish it.
