When you are installing carpeting in a business you need durability. Commercial carpet is designed specifically for the traffic that businesses get. Commercial carpet comes in a variety of choices in style, fiber, and color. Carpeting can add personality to the work environment from formal to laid back. In hotels it can provide directional cues. In healthcare carpet can be calming. It can provide sound dampening in a cubicle setting or a computer lab.
Commercial carpet should be easy to maintain. Most are made flat and dense so they vacuum easily and be easy to clean. You have lots of options to choose from so you will want to consult with a professional once you have made the initial considerations.
To match your carpeting to the proper end-use, you should consider:
Carpet construction and durability
Quality and performance requirements
Insulation and sound absorption
Amount of cushion
Define the specific requirements of the facility.
Type of facility and the area receiving carpet.
How long you would like the carpet to last.
Whether access to subfloor is needed.
Whether there is modular furniture in the space.
On an average day, will there be spills or dirt tracked into the building?
What about moisture? If so how much as this will definitely affect a lot of things?
Is there exposure to chemicals or sun?
What type of traffic and how much? Wheelchairs? Supply carts?
These are the main concerns. You will also have other concerns about the installation and how it may disrupt your work environment. Professional carpet stores and installers will work with you to minimize any disruptions.

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.
