Installing Commercial Carpet in Your Home
Most business offices, public buildings such as libraries, and department stores install commercial carpets as opposed to other flooring alternatives to create a cozy ambiance. If you are a homeowner, you might have noticed that commercial carpets are often more durable than your traditional home carpeting options. Although not extremely common, there are some instances when commercial carpets may be the ideal option for your home. Here are a few situations where commercial carpeting is recommended:
- Mobility Needs – At Unique Flooring, the San Diego carpet specialists, we’ve found that commercial carpeting is often the best option for individuals with mobility needs. Whether you or a family member uses a wheelchair or walking aid such as a cane or a walker, commercial carpeting offers the durability and support needed without sacrificing comfort.
- Multiple Pets – Many times homeowners with multiple pets have difficulty cleaning pet hair out of regular carpet and have to deal with scuff marks and stains in other flooring alternatives. Commercial carpet is great for covering areas of the home where pets are often running or playing and they are easy to clean and maintain.
- Basement Flooring – Basements are often multi-purpose rooms acting as an office, play area and second family room all in one. Commercial carpet is a durable flooring material that can withstand high traffic and has a fairly long lifespan making it perfect for multi-use basements. Also, because commercial carpet was designed for large areas, the cost is often much lower than many homeowners expect.
- Areas with Underground Moisture Problems – Certain flooring materials are often ruined by moisture coming up from under the home. Commercial flooring is the ideal option for these areas because it is directly glued to the concrete subfloor and therefore it typically has no problem withstanding light moisture. If excess water is a problem that you haven’t had checked out, the professionals at Unique Flooring recommend getting a flooring expert to determine if commercial flooring is appropriate before making a final purchase.
Advantages of Commercial Carpets in a Home
In addition to the above situations that may call for commercial flooring in a home, we’ve found that commercial carpets offer a variety of benefits. First, they are tough on wear and tear as they are designed to withstand additional abuse and high traffic. As a result, purchasing commercial carpet will be an investment you will be able to enjoy for many years to come. In addition, they are relatively stain resistant and can be easily cleaned. They are a low maintenance flooring option that only needs routine vacuuming. A final benefit of commercial carpets is the new design options available. Although most come in darker, more neutral shades because of their first purpose as a commercial flooring option, there are still a variety of patterns and a few lighter shades available from top flooring manufacturers such as Shaw carpeting.
