Whether you’re building out a new office space, or it’s time to replace worn-out floors, our team at Floor Coverings International® of Middletown has a lot of experience when it comes to commercial flooring projects. The carpet in your office is not the same as the plush material found in your living room, and there is a good reason for that. Commercial carpet is specifically designed with the capacity to withstand the wear and tear of a busy commercial space. Here is everything you need to know about commercial carpet for your Middletown business.
What is a Commercial Carpet?
Commercial carpet is a material that can better withstand foot traffic and frequent cleanings than its residential counterpart, while still meeting aesthetic and comfort needs. Its specialized design makes it ideal for business settings.
What Are the Differences Between Commercial and Residential Carpet?
One of the biggest differences between commercial and residential carpets is pile length and design. Most commercial carpets have short loops. This keeps the carpet tighter, which allows it to resist fraying or showing signs of wear. Whereas residential carpet often has a longer pile design and typically features cut-loops to make the carpet soft and plush.
Another difference is the padding used under the carpet. Most residential carpet has soft padding, while commercial carpets tend to use a high-density performance cushion. This adds cushion below the carpet but ensures that it isn’t so soft that it breaks apart with heavy use.
What Are the Other Benefits of Commercial Carpet?
Commercial carpet should be cleaned quarterly to ensure its longevity. Unlike other materials, frequent cleaning has been factored into the design of the carpet, and there’s no need to worry that carpet cleaning will further wear it out.
No matter what interior design look you’re going for, commercial carpet is available in a wide range of versatile and attractive colors and patterns to seamlessly enhance any décor.
