Alternatives To Carpet For The Office

by Thomas Jones

Your small business might well have carpet in its offices simply because that is what you are used to seeing in office spaces. But actually, carpets might not be the best flooring solution for your workplace. Even when carpets are regularly cleaned via a commercial cleaning service, it is all too easy for fibrous carpets to house dirt and dust mites. This is bad news for people with allergens and asthmatics who work for you – and if it is bad for the health of your employees, then it is bad for the health of your company. But what other options are there?

Concrete. Concrete is an extremely durable material, and once installed, it will last for the lifetime of your company. Because it is so strong, you don't have to worry about cracks appearing, and it's also very resistant to staining when treated in the right way. Concrete running throughout the office will also give your workspace a slick, contemporary feel that carpet just doesn't have. Because of its hard, non-porous surface, concrete is very easy to clean. You won't have to deal with the regular carpet deep cleans from a commercial cleaning service, and instead your cleaners will be able to mop the floor to ensure that it is totally germ free.

Hardwood. Like concrete, hardwood flooring provides no nooks and crannies for dust, dirt, and germs to linger, making it easy to clean each morning, ensuring that your employees won't be exposed to nasty allergens in the workplace. Unlike concrete, this material is less clinical and cold in its style, and if you are trying to create a warm work environment, this can be a good option. The natural wood grain can bring a touch of the outdoors into your office, creating a soft work environment that is conducive to productivity.

Vinyl. Vinyl flooring is an inexpensive flooring option that is designed specifically to withstand significant amounts of wear and tear. With chairs and desks being scraped across the office floor, and significant footfall, this is a very good quality for an office floor. Unlike carpet, it can be wiped clean very easily to promote a healthy, clean working space. And another advantage is that unlike concrete or hardwood, the look of vinyl flooring is very versatile. You can purchase vinyl tiles that have been created to look like marble, bamboo, glass, and a host of other materials.
