Carpet tiles are a contemporary approach to standard broadloom carpeting. Commercial carpet tiles provide many benefits to any area. Carpet tiles are typically squares of carpeting that are made to lay down like regular carpeting. Some tiles attach to the floor using glue. Carpet tiles are designed to lay down easily, and they can be laid in patterns and blends of colors to create a unique look.
Different sized carpet tiles are available. Smaller carpet tiles create patterns with more variation, while larger tiles minimize the variation in patterns. This is where a carpet company can provide you with options and advice on what will work well for your commercial space. They will come out to your space with samples for you to view so that you can see the colors and patterns in your office environment.
Why Commercial Carpet Tiles?
Commercial carpet tiles are built to last and can handle heavy foot traffic. In a commercial building you can have a lot of other issues besides heavy foot traffic. Stains and spills are going to happen. Perhaps grease or tears to the carpet tiles as well. That is the beauty of the tiles. If one or several are damaged or worn they can be replaced without having to tear up all of the carpet. All you have to do is remove the damaged tiles and replace with new ones. Commercial tiles are made with low pile fibers which are not easily damaged by traffic and are very long lasting.
Carpet tiles can be used in a variety of locations throughout any commercial setting. They can be placed over subfloors because they are resilient to water and moisture.
The tiles backing material is breathable allowing the moisture to rise up through the fibers. The backing material is very strong and will hold extremely well for years.
Easy to maintain and clean. Easier installation then standard carpet. The tiles can be trimmed to fit virtually any area.

Businesses experience a higher volume of foot traffic, so the flooring needs to be able to take the traffic without having to be replaced too soon. Commercial space with heavy traffic should select a commercial carpet to withstand the heavier foot traffic.
Durability and economy are the goals of commercial carpet .
Residential carpet is designed with comfort in mind and it typically uses a thicker padding.
Residential carpeting usually has bigger pile and a looser loop design.
Advantages of Commercial Carpet
Commercial carpet is designed to be sturdier so the material generally has a shorter pile and tight looping which provides the density needed to spring back into its original shape.
Most commercial carpets are stain-resistant, which cuts down on how often they need to be cleaned.
Disadvantages of Commercial Carpet
Less comfortable to stand on because less padding
Commercial Carpet Materials
Nylon is the most used option because it is durable, stain resistant and attractive.
Olefin is a little less durable but is much cheaper than nylon. For this reason it is often used in commercial spaces without a lot of foot traffic or if the tenant is moving within a few years.
Commercial Carpet Construction
There are three major types of commercial carpet construction.
Cut pile is usually the most expensive and the nicest. This type of carpet is plusher and is often used in high-end office space.
Loop is the most common type used in commercial spaces. The fibers are looped not cut, which minimizes fraying and gives the carpet Big areas with a lot of foot traffic usually use this style of carpet.
Carpet tile is used in all types of commercial applications for high traffic areas. The reason for the installation of carpet tile in high traffic areas is that the tiles in these areas can be replaced with tiles from lower traffic areas and the look of the building is easier to maintain. Tiles that have been damaged can be replaced with new ones. This movement of carpet tiles helps maintain the look of the carpet and it lasts longer because of it.
