You can’t just settle for any carpet as a business owner. Commercial carpeting must be durable. Hauglie’s Flooring’s experienced team explains the differences between residential and commercial carpeting.
Commercial carpet is stronger than residential carpet, so it can be used in any industry. Commercial carpeting is essential for businesses because of the high foot traffic and dirt. There are also more pets, children, and moving furniture. The carpet should not be replaced every two years because of wear and tear. You don’t want your employees, clients, or potential clients walking on a tattered and worn carpet. Your carpet represents the character and quality of your business.
Commercial carpet reduces noise, which is one of its greatest advantages. Carpet can reduce the noise in your office. The employees can concentrate better when they don’t hear the echo of the people in the building talking and walking. Carpet allows staff to listen to conferences and conduct client meetings without being interrupted. In short, carpet encourages productivity.
Installing commercial carpeting in your office, or any other type of business for that matter, will increase safety. Employees in high heels and hard-bottomed footwear are more likely to slip when walking on vinyl or tile floors. This can lead to accidents. Carpeting high-traffic areas in your business can reduce the risk of accidents and soften the impact if an employee does stumble.
Commercial carpeting is a low-maintenance option that can be used in your business. While vinyl or tile may appear to be easier, it’s not. Commercial carpeting does not require constant maintenance, unlike other surfaces. Commercial carpeting is also stain-resistant, making it easy to clean if you do spill something.
Commercial carpeting can reduce energy costs in most businesses. Commercial carpeting retains and absorbs heat from the floor, while tile, vinyl and hardwoods reflect and reject it. This keeps the building warm during the winter and fall months. Your energy costs will decrease because the thermostat is not used as much.
Commercial carpeting will also improve the look of your company. The first room a client enters will determine their impression of your business. The decor, professionalism and appearance of this room will affect the first impression that a client has of your business. The right commercial carpet will excite your client and reflect positively on your business.
