4 Ways Your Commercial Flooring Installers Can Help With Your Vinyl Flooring

  1. Go For Quality For Longer Lasting Flooring – This may seem like a no-brainer, but many businesses just like yours may sacrifice quality for the short-term focus on the bottom line. But if you don’t aim for a good quality flooring that is the right thickness and measurements to match your foot traffic, then the quality and life of the flooring will suffer over time. But don’t worry! We at Floor Coverings International Cherry Hill have experienced commercial flooring specialists who will assist you with selection from beginning to end to ensure you pick the right option!

  1. Communicate Amount of Foot Traffic to Your Flooring Installer – This is very important from a selection perspective like the previous point, but if you fully describe to your commercial flooring installer the amount of foot traffic your building or even specific areas will have, they can help cater a warranty and a long-term maintenance plan for you.
  1. Maintain the Surface Finish and ColorHow can you do this? Simple. The easiest way is to regularly and fully clean your floors, as this will help get up the tiny particles and oils that will break down the flooring finish and color over time. You can also use floor sealers and even floor mats in certain areas as added protection.
  1. Repair Dents and Scratches With Liquid Seam Filler – A downside (although not really) to commercial vinyl is that the surface can dent or scratch if heavy furniture is carelessly scraped across the surface. Take care to lift furniture or use furniture pads, but you can also use liquid seam filler to help with light dents and scratches.
