Top Reasons For Offices To Install Carpet

Are you thinking about moving your business to a new office? Are you currently considering how you'll furnish your new space? Here are some reasons for carpet installation to be part of your plans:

Safety: Short pile carpet provides a secure and non-slip surface for your employees to walk on. If someone spills a few drops of coffee or water while on the way back to their desk, you won't have to worry about having someone immediately rush over with a mop. The carpet's surface will prevent people from slipping on the liquid and injuring themselves or their coworkers.

Easy to install: Your carpet installation by a company like JLG Flooring doesn't have to be a complicated affair. If you have carpet tiles installed, instead of rolls of carpet, nearly anyone will be able to do it. All you need to install carpet tiles is a yardstick or tape measure and a utility knife. If your tiles don't have an adhesive backing, you'll need carpet tape as well. If any large pieces of office furniture have already been moved in, you can simply work around them, instead of needing to move everything out again.

Environmentally friendly: Many types of carpeting are either made from recycled materials or can be recycled into something else. If your company prides itself on being environmentally conscious, look for carpet with a high percentage of post-consumer recycled materials. You should also find out ahead of time who recycles carpet in your area and where to take it for recycling when it's removed.

No need for chair rolling pads: If your carpet installation plans include carpet tiles in the main office area, you'll be able to eliminate using pads underneath your office's chairs. These pads make the area easier to roll across, as well as help prevent carpet wear. But carpet tiles have pile that is short enough to not need a pad between them and any office chairs. In addition, instead of needing to replace the whole carpet if an area becomes worn, you'll be able to remove just a few carpet tiles and replace them with new ones. 

Adds color: Hardwood, tile and concrete are often relatively dull in color. They may only come in shades of white, brown or black. But a carpet installation can be in a wide variety of colors. If your company logo is a particular color, you may even be able to find a carpet that will match, allowing you to brighten up an otherwise boring and ordinary office.
