Are you looking for a way to increase your property value while also improving the overall look of your building? This blog is for you! Omni Facility Maintenance Services is the best company for helping you choose and install the best flooring for your facility. Improving the flooring in your facility could give your business and building the refresher it needs. Below are some of our top flooring choices for businesses.
Omni Facility Maintenance Services offers some of the best options for commercial carpeting. If you’re trying to give your office space a warm, new feel, commercial carpeting is the option for you. Did you know that carpet actually doubles as an insulator for heat? This makes it great for cold Chicago weather! There is no doubt that our commercial carpeting will bring a comforting presence to your office.
This said, carpet is much harder to clean than other flooring. It traps dust, dirt, germs, spills, and everything in between in its fibers. Carpet Restorations Plus states, “Ideally, you should schedule a professional carpet cleaner every six to 12 months for light to normal traffic, every three to six months for heavy traffic and every two to three months for carpets exposed to extreme foot traffic.” This is something to consider when selecting the best floor for your facility.
Luxury Vinyl Planks or Tiles
Luxury vinyl planks and tiles have become increasingly popular. They have several advantages over traditional hardwood or tile floors. First, maintenance is much easier. With a protective, smooth outside layer it is easy to clean and has stronger defenses against scratches and chips. Vinyl also comes with extreme design flexibility. It allows you to get the look of wood or natural stone at a significantly lower price than real hardwood or stone. One disadvantage of luxury vinyl is that is can be slippery and cold. Be sure to keep the health and wellbeing of your employees and customers/clients in mind when considering this flooring.
Vinyl Composite Tile
If you’re looking for a reflection in your flooring, this is the one for you! This particular flooring is similar to what you would find in a school or hospital. This flooring is extremely flexible in design and has a high resistance to damage and noise. Vinyl composite tile has the same disadvantages as luxury vinyl planks or tiles. Remember to keep this in mind when choosing your flooring. With a lifespan of around 15-20 years, this could be a great investment for your facility long term.
Ceramic & Porcelain Tile
This beautiful flooring will turn any room into a complete luxury. Ceramic and porcelain tile have amazing stain resisting qualities, durability, and a long lifespan. While this may sound great, it might not be your best option. This type of flooring is pricier than most other flooring options. It also has considerably more weight than other flooring. This is something you must keep in mind to keep your facility healthy.
Commercial Laminate Flooring
Commercial laminate flooring is one of the easiest and cheapest options on this list and a great one to keep in mind. Laminate is damage-resistant and easy to clean for a great cost. Unfortunately, laminate flooring does come with its disadvantages, as all floorings do. One of the most notable disadvantages is laminate lacks in water resistance. If your facility were to have a light flood, it could affect the flooring. Plus, with Chicago winters, it might not be the best fit if you have high foot traffic.
