Considering Carpet For Your New Commercial Property? Why It's Smart To Choose Concrete Instead

If you are building a commercial property and you want to create a space with long lasting and ecological materials, consider concrete flooring for the building. There are many advantages to using this material in your space, and you'll want to look at the different decorative stained concrete possibilities.

You can a get floor that is stained and stamped to look like hardwood or tile along with other colors or patterns. Here are a few reasons why you want to choose concrete over carpeting for the property.

Avoid Bacteria and Carpet Cleaning

Carpeting is a common source for bacteria, especially when you have a lot of people coming in and out of your commercial space. It gets worn, stained, discolored, faded and dirty over time, and it has to be cleaned. With concrete flooring for the building you don't have to worry about these nuisances, and instead you can just a few rugs where needed to prevent slips and falls. This is especially ideal during cold and flu seasons, and around bathroom areas.

Have a Long Lasting Material

The concrete flooring can last five times longer than carpeting, or more, if it's properly maintained. This means you are likely making one investment as long as you are the business owner by choosing concrete, instead of having to replace carpeting several times. The concrete is so durable it will increase the property value of the building.

Minimal Maintenance

Concrete is an incredibly robust material. With stained or sealed concrete you don't have to worry about scratches, and the concrete isn't going to chip or flake. It will have to be sealed occasionally, but you don't have to worry about warping, fading, rotting, or breaking. 

If the property has a basement you have to make sure that you are able to support the concrete flooring properly, since this type of flooring is going to be very heavy. You can have the flooring stamped with an emblem or with a logo if you want when you have it installed, and you may want to ask the professionals to give you examples when they provide you with an estimate. If you are looking for a great flooring option for your commercial space, choose concrete over carpeting. 

Talk with the concrete experts (like those at Burns Brothers Concrete Construction Corp) to see how you should care for the flooring after it's installed, and how often they should come to seal the concrete for you.
