Choosing Commerical Carpet
How many visitors does your office get in one day? The answer will affect what type of commercial carpet you buy. For example, foot traffic is less of a concern for a small office with a dozen employees than a large corporation with hundreds.
Commercial carpet is more durable than what you’d install in your home because it has to withstand high foot traffic. For this reason, most office carpet is low pile so it traps less dirt while being easier to clean.
The type of backing you choose will determine how the carpet wears over time. If you anticipate high foot traffic, we recommend choosing cushion-backed commercial carpet. As people walk over your new carpet, the cushion underneath compresses so carpet fibers aren’t crushed. An alternative to cushioned backing would be low pile carpet. If you choose hardback carpet, the pressure of foot traffic bends carpet fibers so they wear faster.
Accidents happen, which is why it’s easier to buy extra commercial carpet tiles than what you need, you’ll be grateful you have extra if someone spills on your carpet the day before a big meeting.in case of a spill. While it may not make sense to buy more
It’s much easier (and less expensive) to replace one square than your entire carpet flooring. Most wall-to-wall carpet is installed in sections that are 12 feet wide. Carpet tiles, on the other hand, are installed one square at a time. Need an estimate for carpet installation? Have a contractor measure the dimensions of the floor you want replaced so you know how much commercial carpet you need to buy.
We offer a range of carpet styles for your company’s industry and brand. For example, a law firm may demand a more traditional style carpet than an advertising agency. What words would you use to describe your company’s brand? You should be able to use these same adjectives when describing the style carpet you want for your organization.
Do your employees spend a lot of time on their feet? If so, you may want to invest in cushion-backed carpet flooring. Cushion-backed carpet gives feet more support than hardback carpet, which can help reduce muscle strain in the long run. Commercial carpet is also able to absorb more sound than other flooring options, which can help reduce stress.
Choose the highest quality carpet for what your budget allows. We understand that commercial carpet is an investment, which is why you’ll want to choose flooring options that’ll last for years to come. It’s important to understand that the type of commercial carpet you choose will affect how people perceive your business.
