Many myths are false about carpet installation and commercial carpeting. These myths can deter business owners from installing commercial carpeting in their offices. However, commercial carpeting is an affordable and easy way to enhance the look of your building. These five myths about commercial flooring are important to know if you’re thinking of installing commercial carpeting in your office.
Myth #1 – Carpet installation is more expensive than other flooring options
Carpeting is the best commercial flooring option. Carpeting is far more affordable than hardwood flooring and can last for decades if it is properly maintained. Flooring solutions that are cheaper in the short-term will end up costing more long-term because they are less durable and will wear faster. The cost of cheaper options will be more expensive and require constant replacement. This makes them more costly over the long term. Commercial carpet installation is the best option for long-term flooring.
Myth #2: Carpet requires exhaustive maintenance
Carpeting can be misunderstood as more difficult to maintain than hardwood flooring. It is not true. Commercial carpeting is very easy to maintain and look after. All you have to do is arrange for a weekly vacuuming and a yearly hot-water extraction. Scheduled maintenance is an easy and affordable way to prolong the life of your carpet without constantly having to maintain it. You can also choose from a variety of carpeting materials and durability options that will suit your needs. Carpeting is easy to maintain, unlike other flooring options that may need sweeping, waxing or buffing, as well as full replacements.
Myth #3 – Installation will disrupt work hours and office operations
The myth of carpet installation in commercial spaces originated from a fact. Some companies require that you move out of your office during installation, sometimes for several weeks. Business carpet installation can be completed over the weekend or overnight by certain flooring installation companies so your work will not be interrupted. This ensures that your office is always running smoothly and efficiency is maintained.
Myth #4 – Carpet aggravates allergies and asthma
Many people believe that allergens can live in commercial carpeting, which can cause asthma and allergies. Studies show that carpeting acts as a filter and traps allergens, so they don’t get airborne. The results of a study that compared carpeted and uncarpeted rooms showed that carpeted rooms had better results and didn’t suffer as severe symptoms. Carpeting can prevent allergy in commercial spaces as long as it is kept clean and well maintained.
Myth #5 – Before installing, you need to unplug all cables and move your furniture.
This myth, like myth number three, can be true if it isn’t proven otherwise. Some companies offer to raise furniture. Their unique method of installing furniture is to raise it instead of moving it.
