Carpet Cleaning Experts Weigh In: Carpet Or Tile For Your Business?
At Zerorez, we aren't just carpet cleaning experts. We are flooring experts and we know that owning and managing a business requires making decisions every day that affect the way your business works and your bottom line. We think that choosing the right flooring for your business is one of the most important decisions you can make because it can make a big difference in how much money and time you spend on maintenance. For most businesses, the two most popular options are carpeting and tile. Here are some things you need to know about both so that you can choose wisely:
For office settings, carpeting is a great choice. Carpeting comes in a variety of color and pile choices and they are soft and warm and are great for reducing noise in a busy office environment. In fact, according to The Carpet And Rug Institute, "No other . . . material performs the dual role of a floor covering and a versatile acoustical aid." Carpeting doesn't just absorb the sound of footsteps, it also absorbs airborne noises like the noises made by computers, copiers and other office machinery. Depending on the type of carpeting you choose, carpeting can be a more expensive option, especially when durability is a factor; but that is offset by the fact that carpeting is safer for the office environment because it cushions slips and falls better than hard flooring. Carpeting is relatively easy to care for with the help of employee vigilance for tackling spills, a professional janitorial service for daily vacuuming and professional carpet cleaning in Las Vegas, NV for twice-yearly hot water extraction-type cleanings.
Porcelain and ceramic tile are durable and hard-wearing. Like carpeting, they are available in a variety of colors and styles; but unlike carpeting, they do not offer any kind of sound absorption or added safety for an office environment. What tile does offer is easy maintenance - spills and dirt can be quickly wiped or swept up. Additionally, tile does not absorb illness-causing allergens and germs the way carpeting does. Carpeting can trap bacteria, pollen and more and then release it every time it's walked on. Tile isn't warm in the winter time but it also doesn't show wear spots and doesn't need to be replaced as often as carpeting. A professional janitorial service can keep tile clean on a daily basis and a professional carpet cleaning company can do periodic grout cleaning that will restore the grout color and keep it fresh and clean-looking.
No matter which type of flooring you choose for your business, Zerorez carpet cleaning in Las Vegas, NV can help you to keep it clean and new-looking with twice-yearly carpet cleaning using our patented deep-cleaning technology or periodic grout cleaning.
