The difference between the requirements of commercial flooring and domestic flooring is the number of people who walk on the floor each day. In busy workplaces, hundreds of people may walk on a floor every day. This means that commercial flooring must be durable and easy to maintain. In rainy Chester and North Wales, wet feet spread mud and other dirt on floors, so it helps to have floors that can be quickly cleaned.
There are several types of flooring that meet the criteria of being long-lasting and easy to maintain. Luxury vinyl tile (LVT) flooring is a popular choice for high-traffic areas. It is water resistant, hardwearing and easy to clean. Furthermore, it is quick to install and is available in a variety of colours and textures.
Tiles are a favourite floor covering for commercial kitchens as they withstand spills and the buildup of grease. Porcelain tiles are good for heavy duty installations, but quarry tiles are a cheaper alternative.
Floor coverings containing rubber have cushion properties that reduce the fatigue of people who walk on them. They dampen noise and are good for care facilities to prevent fall injuries.
Many businesses like carpet tiles. They are good for areas where particular regions have more footfall. Instead of replacing a whole carpet, only selected worn tiles need changing Industrial strength carpet tiles are very durable and resist moisture.
Durability and easy maintenance are not the only concerns when choosing new commercial flooring; the look of the floor is important too. Hardwood and engineered wood may not be as hardwearing as other materials, but they look great and are suitable for areas with less footfall. Laminate flooring that looks like real wood but is less expensive is available too.
