No matter your business, the company carpet is going to see quite a bit of traction over the years. The lifespan of commercial carpeting, on average, is about three to ten years. Of course, there are a number of factors to consider when it comes to a carpet’s existence.
Nylon carpet fibers, for example, increase a carpet’s life because they are durable and their dying process makes them stain-resistant. Another factor the density of the carpet; denser ones last longer than others. The list goes on and on, but what should you be looking for when thinking about replacing your office carpeting?
1. Your Commercial Carpeting Doesn’t Smell Nice
Odors accumulate in all fabrics and materials. Usually, a good cleaning will eliminate any lingering scents and smells without too much hassle. Unfortunately, the remains of consistent foot traffic, dirty footwear, and spilled coffee can only be washed away so many times before it really starts to stick.
What’s really going to affect the odor is when dirt and messes penetrate into the padding itself. When it comes to liquids, mold can also become a problem quicker than you think and it’s not cheap or easy to clean away.
2. Your Commercial Carpeting’s Style is Outdated
Every part of your business says something. If you have old shag carpet or bright green carpet in a modern, black and white office space, you’re sending the message that your company is out of touch. Different styles and trends come and go, be it fashion or flooring.
3. Your Commercial Carpeting is Noticeably Stained
When you start to consider hiding stains with potted plants or filing cabinets, it’s time for a change. You can only clean away messes so many times before some of it just can’t be removed. Plus, the stain-resistant finish most commercial carpeting is treated with has a finite lifespan. Better to replace it before it starts looking grungy and unprofessional.
4. It May be Setting Off Allergies
Older carpets have a nasty habit of retaining allergens. If you notice an increase in allergy symptoms in yourself or your staff, it could be time to replace the out carpet.
5. Your Commercial Carpeting is Worn Out
You are going to see wear and tear in high traffic areas. Bald spots show up, fraying and rips come next, then there’s matting that remains unaffected by professional cleaning. Don’t let it get to the point where glue and tape are holding your carpet together.
6. It Has Deteriorated Padding
The padding is what gives carpeting its support. Without it, it becomes fabric that is uncomfortable to walk on. Over time, that’s exactly what can happen. After enough traffic, the carpet offers little to no support, lacks insulation, and decreases in sound dampening ability.
Check that the carpeting is wrinkling and seem uneven. Those are key indications it’s time for an upgrade.
