If your place of business is in need of new carpeting, there are plenty of options on the market. How can you determine the most suitable carpet for your building? Some of the most important issues to consider are the amount of traffic in the area, maintenance, color selection, durability, etc. Keep these topics in mind as you look for the right commercial carpet. Here are some questions you should consider during your search.

Is There A Heavy Traffic Flow?

Some commercial carpet will go behind counters or under desks and it won’t necessarily see a lot of traffic. Other commercial carpet may be installed in corridors or entryways where a lot of people will be coming and going. Keep in mind that carpet for higher traffic areas should have more durability and higher wearability ratings in order to look great for many years.

How Much Maintenance Is Necessary?

Carpet always requires some maintenance as you will want to vacuum and keep it clean. Stains should be removed immediately and according to the manufacturer’s instructions. If necessary, have the carpet professionally cleaned. When choosing a commercial carpet make sure to ask about any stain protection. Some carpets are naturally stain resistant and others are treated while in the manufacturing process.

What Colors Highlight The Décor?

The building may already have a certain color scheme going and there might already be decor in place. Or maybe the carpet will be chosen first and the color scheme will follow. Sometimes a designer may be working with you to make color selections. Other times it may work best to choose a color that is neutral and complements the other colors that are dominant in the building.
