Three Advantages of Having Carpet in Office Buildings Home Improvement by Kathleen Debra - October 23, 2017November 9, 20170 While carpet isn’t the preferred floor covering in private residences, it is common in most office buildings. It is often found in: Hallways Boardrooms Reception Areas Private Offices Conference Rooms Reduces Noise One of the main advantages to having carpeted floors in an office environment is that it helps reduce noise. The sound of shoes walking across the floor is virtually eliminated and other common sounds, such as ringing telephones, can be dampened as well. When people are meeting privately, such as in boardrooms, carpet can prevent sound from carrying, making it harder to overhear sensitive information. Easy to Clean Carpeting takes less time and is easier to clean than timber or tiled floors. Most carpets only require weekly vacuuming, although they may need daily vacuuming in high-traffic areas. Vacuuming also helps eliminate allergens that can make personnel sick and reduce productivity. Enhances Appearance The right type of West Yorkshire carpets in the right colours can enhance the appearance of your offices. Also, the right pile can last a long time, making carpets more cost-effective than other types of flooring, especially stone or timber, that can be damaged by high-heeled shoes, delivery carts, or dirt and debris tracked in on the soles of shoes. By choosing carpet tiles, your company can save on the cost of needing to repair or replace carpet that has been stained or damaged. Only the tiles with damage or stains need to be removed or replaced instead of an entire section or floor.
