When you own a business, you will have some type of foot traffic throughout your store. Depending on the type of commercial business you have, some brands get more traffic than others. As a business ourselves, we want to help others by explaining the best types of flooring for a commercial business. Keep scrolling to learn more.
Within the past decade, luxury vinyl has taken not only homes by storm but businesses as well. These floors are durable and long-lasting to the point of withstanding heavy foot traffic in hospital common areas. And since they come in a wide variety of colors and styles, they are attractive enough for upscale restaurants and schools. While luxury vinyl cannot handle industrial or commercial kitchens’ spills and messes, it does work well in commercial businesses, hospitals, schools and seating areas of restaurants.
If you are looking for a flooring option that curbs loud noises, then carpet tile is your best option. Carpet tiles have a cushion on the back, so it absorbs loud noises and adds additional comfort. This back cushion also helps the carpet keep its shape over time, even after many years of heavy traffic. The main concern most business owners have with carpet tile is carpet cleaning. You will need to stay on top of cleaning and maintaining these floors. And for hard to remove stains, call a carpet cleaning team to come to help you out.
Laminate flooring is one of the most popular choices for commercial businesses. Compared to many of the other flooring options, it is affordable and easy to install and maintain. This type of flooring is hygienic and durable, so it is great for a lot of foot traffic. However, it is one of the most difficult to repair, so if your laminate floors ever have any damage or need replacing, please contact a professional home service company before doing it on your own.
If you want floors that are easy to maintain and are water-resistant, then you need ceramic tile in your commercial store. Ceramic tile can handle water or grease spills, heavy foot traffic, grease buildups and more. Typically, industrial and commercial kitchens use ceramic tile, but other businesses can use it as well.
