When you’re looking to replace the commercial floor in your facility, you’re going to be faced with a number of options. The first, and arguably the most important option is the type of commercial floor you want. There are numerous options available to you, and below are the top five you may want to consider.
Vinyl flooring is arguably the least expensive type of commercial flooring you’re going to find, but it also is the least durable. If you have a commercial facility that sees a lot of traffic, including people, carts, and other items, you might not want to consider vinyl flooring. However, certain vinyl planks can be designed to look like hardwood, mosaic tile, and more.
This is one of the best looking and most durable options you’re going to find for any commercial space. It is more costly to install because it takes a lot longer, but when it is maintained properly it can last for many, many years.
If you have an office environment, carpeting may be a better option because it helps to reduce echo and sound. Carpeting acts as an absorbent for sound and that may be a more practical option within a close knit office environment. Carpeting can be much more difficult to keep clean and require regular, thorough professional cleaning.
For any commercial industry that’s looking for a classic look that will last a long time, hardwood is a great option. While it’s important to make sure the hardwood floor is protected from scratches and other damage, over time it can be sanded down, re-stained, and resealed. That could be a more practical option for some commercial businesses.
Today, polished concrete is a great option for many commercial industries because they can be designed to look like almost any other type of floor surface, including hardwood, tile, and more. Concrete is strong, durable, and will last for many, many years.
Once you decide on the commercial floor surface that’s right for your company, you’ll want to ensure that you have them properly maintained using experienced maintenance personnel and the right floor cleaning equipment.
