    REASON 2) Ease of Installation

    Carpet tiles are popular in commercial and institutional buildings due to the easy installation.  An office room flooring could be converted to carpet tiles within 2 hours without any wet renovation works and cleaning. Broadloom (wall-to-wall) carpets are notorious for being bulky and cumbersome whereas carpet tiles, due to their small size are easy to transport and install. The installation of carpet tiles is easy which does not require skillful labor or any specialized equipment. Furthermore, underlay is required for broadloom carpets but not in carpet tiles which also make it easy to install and reduce the installation time. In addition, they are also easy to install in places that are not accessible to broadloom carpets. Carpet tiles are in modular sizes and packed in carton boxes thus it is easy to handle and store them at warehouses and job sites.

    Broadloom carpet comes in large rolls, usually 12 feet wide along with an underlay. To fit into a room, some portion of the carpet and the underlay needs to be cut which causes wastage. Carpet tiles have almost none or minimum material wastage. If you are planning for a new interior for your space or renovating an old one, and wondering how to choose the right carpet tile. Need not worry! Goodrich carpet tile has all the qualities of a good carpet. Modular carpets are made from either nylon or polypropylene yard. And they can be incredibly durable and long-lasting.

    There is no delamination of backing material. They have sufficient self-weight so that the carpet tile sits flat on the substrate and does not wear out easily. They have straight edges, good dimensional stability to avoid undue shrinkage or expansion which may cause the joints to open loose or pop up. There will be no unravelling of carpet yarn at edges even when the tile is cut. With so many advantages, Goodrich carpet tiles make for an ideal choice for projects on a tight budget; tight timeline or which need good design options.

     

    REASON 3) Easy Replacement & Maintenance

    Using carpet tiles for homes are more popular now due to the trend of home offices. Furthermore, should there be any spills on the carpet tiles, they are easily replaceable. Carpet tiles are not only easy to install, but also easy to remove or replace. Should one spot get damaged? No problem! The soiled or stained individual pieces can be replaced very easily with new ones. Most carpet tiles are low pile so they trap less dirt and are easy to clean.

    They can also be removed and reused if they are still in good conditions. Carpet tiles are really good for institutions or homes because if you stain one small area, you do not need to remove the entire carpet.

    REASON 5: Acoustic Benefits

    Carpet tiles with backing can offer acoustic benefits versus vinyl or laminate floorings which are essential for the growing number of open concept offices and co-working spaces. With no walls to buffer sounds, ambient noise levels can quickly reach unmanageable levels and disturbance.
