Most people worry about how long carpets will last, especially when it comes to installing it for your business. The type of commercial carpeting you choose, needs to be suitable for your business in terms of its footfall, the atmosphere (especially if it’s an office) as well as the safety. If you’re wondering which is best for you, or how to suitably choose the correct carpet then we’ve got all the information you need.
Footfall is something we mention regularly on our blog because in our opinion, it is one of the most important factors to consider when installing commercial flooring. Carpet tiles are able to withstand a high amount of traffic as they can be installed over timber and concrete, which is why they are a popular choice in places like airports, libraries and other public places. Another reason for their popularity is their easy maintenance, if a spillage occurs or the carpet becomes damaged in anyway, the individual tiles can be replaced as opposed to the whole carpet. Offices tend to use carpet tiles as they can achieve creative patterned designs.
Contract carpet is extremely durable but also has an attractive finish making it suitable for the healthcare industry and education too. It’s also incredibly easy to maintain as it only needs a quick hoover as opposed to constant thorough cleaning. It’s non-slippery surface and soft cushioning also prevents any accidents occurring which is why it is great for use in schools.
Traditional carpet is not only practical, but it is designed to offer superb comfort as well as durability and aesthetics. These carpets are much thicker than other contract carpets and therefore provide extra layer of comfort and support, which is essential if your employees are stood on their feet often like in the retail sector. You’re likely to find traditional carpets in hotels as it provides a ‘home’ environment that is comforting for guests.
