Carpet might be a good choice for your business or home if you need commercial flooring. If you’re looking for a low-pile, durable flooring option that won’t stain easily, then high traffic carpet may be for you.
Carpets designed for commercial use are extremely durable, stain-resistant, and easy to maintain. Berber carpets have looped fibers that are looped through the carpet backing, making them less soft, but more durable.
A commercially-rated carpet has a lower pile, meaning it is thinner. This allows the carpet to withstand wear and tear without matting or crushing.

Padding isn’t always necessary for commercial carpet. You can sometimes glue it directly to the subfloor. Choosing the right carpet padding option, however, can still benefit you. Underlayments made of rubber roll provide the best padding, since they are durable, not too soft, and offer some give underfoot.
