One of the major considerations is the flooring you choose and how long that flooring will last for. Over time, even the highest quality contract flooring will need to be replaced - and by noticing indicators that your flooring is reaching the end of its life, you can replace it quickly and stop it from creating a bad image or safety issues for your business.
Stains On Flooring
One of the most noticeable ways you can tell your flooring needs replacing is when you see visible staining. Perhaps this is down to a flood causing water damage, spilt food or drink, or office supplies leaking fluid. Whatever the reason, this kind of staining can create a negative impression on both staff and clients.
Have you been smelling something unusual around your building lately? Unpleasant odours might not be due to improper cleaning or faulty pipework - sometimes a bad smell can be down to your carpets degrading. Leaving this unattended can cause low morale and potential health issues, so replacing is essential.
Peeling With Certain Types Of Flooring
If you have linoleum flooring, then you may notice peeling. As the floor ages, you may notice that the flooring peels back and then can become damp. This is because air can enter under the peeled area, and cause dampness and even mould to grow.
Changes To The Feel Of The Floor
The way that your flooring feels underfoot can be a clear sign of whether it is still in good condition or in need of replacement. As your flooring is walked on, the padding in the underlays reduces until the carpet or vinyl no longer feels as comfortable. Not only that, but this kind of wear and tear can present a health and safety hazard, as you may find it causes trips and slips to occur. This can be especially prevalent if you notice fraying in the carpet or splitting with vinyl, and finding a contract carpet fitter to replace this flooring should be done quickly.
