Here's what our members are saying...


"We started an air duct cleaning company in 2003 after the economy started to slow we needed additional services to offer. A banker friend of mine suggested I look into the janitorial industry. I found the The Janitorial Store, and shortly thereafter was fortunate enough to meet Steve. And the rest is history. I consider Steve Hanson not only a business mentor but a great friend. 4 years later our janitorial division is nearly 10 times larger then our air duct cleaning division and still growing. Thanks so much to Steve and The Janitorial Store!"

"Steve - I just wanted to let you know that I got the 5 times a week account. Thanks so much for returning my call so quickly and being willing to offer advice, answer my questions and be a sounding board for strategy. You are a storehouse of information! I really appreciate your willingness to help. Thanks so much."

"There's something to say about having the ability to pick up the phone & contact the Janitorial Store with a problem, or simply to talk through a proposal that's on your desk. For the past 4+ years, I've happily paid my membership investment into TJS and have gotten an ROI that makes me want to ask Steve & Jean "WHAT ARE YOU GUYS DOING!?!?!" They have truly been a blessing to the growth of our company & have consistently shared their wealth of knowledge in a family-oriented style manner. I really dig that about them! I really do!! And I appreciate you guys simply being here. I've learned a lot! Blessings to your businesses."

VIDEO: How to Buff a VCT Tile Floor

Printer-Friendly Format

Have you ever wondered how to get a dull-looking VCT tile floor shiny again? This short video takes you step-by-step through the process of spray buffing a VCT tile floor using a high-speed floor machine.

Video Recap:

Before buffing a VCT floor, clear items such as boxes, files, chairs, trashcans, and mats. Sweep or vacuum the floor and then mop it with a neutral PH floor cleaner. Use cool or cold water, not hot. Be sure the floor is dry.

Prepare the machine by putting on the right pad. Spray a small amount of solution in front of the machine and be sure not to let it dry out. Use a front-to-back motion instead of a side-to-side one and make at least two passes. If there is not enough shine, either go over the area again or slow down. Don't spray the baseboards or furniture.

After finishing the entire floor, remove the pad and clean it. There will be extra dust on the floor, so vacuum it one more time.
