What is the difference between
commercial flooring and residential flooring?
There are several differences when it comes to commercial flooring and residential flooring. For one, the material often differs. You probably won’t walk into a business and see the same carpet styles that you find in homes. This is because commercial flooring needs to be able to withstand the heaviest foot traffic without the constant need for maintenance. Materials need to be sturdy and durable. Secondly, commercial floor installation is usually a much larger job. Stores, museums, hospitals, and schools require more equipment, materials, and labor to get the job done. Many residential flooring companies simply aren’t well equipped enough to get the job done in a timely manner.
Commercial kitchen flooring, to use one example, needs to be able to withstand heavy daily use. A typical residence would not be subjected to the high traffic, drops, spills and stains common to a commercial kitchen. That’s why we’ve carefully sourced top-quality commercial flooring solutions to meet the unique needs of these kinds of spaces — while keeping the people working in them safe and comfortable.Schedule Appointment
