Fortunately, flooring is not what it used to be in a commercial or heavily-traffic job. Manufacturers acknowledged that durability and high performance doesn’t have to exclude warmth, comfort, and style. That is why the commercial product lines have expanded to include soft, yet durable broadloam carpet and carpet tile and beautiful resilient plank. Don’t worry though, we can still obtain and install the tried-and-true vinyl composite tile! However, one may think a little differently when considering a commercial product once they learn about all the options. Commercial products are most often installed in office spaces, hospitals, schools, churches, classrooms and hallways, senior living facilities, apartment buildings, retail spaces, and residential spaces, like basements, patios, and sunrooms.
FAQs of Commercial Flooring
What is the benefit of commercial grade flooring?
Commercial flooring is manufactured with durability and ease of maintenance in mind. Although residential flooring will stand up to everyday wear and tear, commercial flooring goes one step or more further to withstand continuous heavy traffic, the use of heavy equipment, and intense wear and tear. Installing commercial grade flooring will last an extended period of time without having to continually maintain it.
Can I use commercial flooring in my residential area?
Yes, you can! There are circumstances where commercial flooring actually makes more sense than residential. Carpet tile is a great option for basements because it is low maintenance, provides warmth, and can be changed out easily in case of tile damage. Resilient plank works well for a home that needs to be handicapped accessible as it can take the wear and tear of a wheelchair or scooter and is a breeze to clean and maintain.
What type of prep work needs to be done before installing?
Preparation of any floor is usually dependent on several factors, like past water issues, the type of flooring that is being removed and how it was installed, or if the space is temperature controlled. With that in mind, Brandt Carpet & Tile will come to your space and review all the factors prior to providing a proposal so we both know ahead of time what needs to be done to prep for new flooring.
What are the benefits from choosing carpet tile over broadloam?
Carpet tile is durable, easy to maintain, offers installation versatility, and has endless design options. Manufacturers offer an array of colors and patterns that can change per style just depending on the direction the tile is installed. Also, if one tile is damaged beyond repair, it can be easily removed and be replaced without disturbing the remaining flooring. This is definitely a benefit when it comes to hallways, classrooms, retail, and offices.
