When designing a commercial space, there are several flooring types to consider. While many go for laminate or carpet based flooring, for some, hardwood may be the smarter choice. There are a lot of reasons to choose hardwood flooring for your next commercial property, one of the chief among them being that hardwood is excellent for creating a long-lasting, durable, and impressive appearance that customers will find impressive. Natural wood has an immediate welcoming effect that few things can replicate, if you’re looking to impress, hardwood is the way to go.
Easy To Clean And Maintain
One of the most significant benefits to hardwood versus laminate and carpet is that it is easier to maintain and will continue to look great for far longer. Carpet and laminate can both become stained and grimy, while hardwood tends to stay nicer longer. When it does lose much of its beauty, hardwood can be sanded down and refinished to appear good as new while carpet and laminate will just need to be replaced. Hardwood also requires less overall maintenance, weekly sweeping, mopping, and a layer of polish now and again are really all you need.
Better Indoor Air Quality
One of the most significant problems with carpeting and some laminate flooring options is the effect they have on air quality. Carpets trap pollen, dander, odors, chemicals and any bacteria or pollutants in the air and hold on to them. This can create a severe indoor air quality problem, especially if you are not performing routine maintenance. Meanwhile, some laminates have chemical components that can create their own air quality issues. Using hardwood removes all of the problems quickly and easily.
Hardwood increases your property value significantly when compared to other types of flooring. This is because it has a reputation for quality and is seen as an investment rather than just an aesthetic decision.
There is no way to discount the preferred look of natural hardwood, there’s a reason so many other flooring types are made in an attempt to recreate it. Hardwood has a natural glow that will make your commercial building stand out in a positive, welcoming way that customers will not forget.
