How commercial flooring works can benefit your business

Commercial premises such as offices, retail buildings and warehouses are essential to day-to-day business operations, with floorspace being one of the most important considerations. The quality and condition of floored surfaces can have a significant influence on how well a business can perform, especially in busy work environments and areas of heavy daily footfall.

Here we look at just a few of the benefits offered by upgrading the flooring at a commercial premises by re-carpeting or applying new coatings and screeds to existing surfaces.


Replacing or re-laying flooring surfaces in a commercial environment generally acts to improve the appearance of the area. This makes the workplace a more pleasant and comfortable environment for customers, guests and employees, leaving a far better impression of the business.


Uneven surfaces and trip hazards can become commonplace when flooring in commercial premises becomes old and worn out. This can lead to an unwanted rise in accidents and injuries on site and compromises the safety of employees and other visitors to the premises.


When new surfaces are laid this allows businesses to consider the requirements of the flooring in each area of the premises. This offers the opportunity to assess the suitability of flooring in strategic areas such as warehouses, loading bays, shop floors and offices and make beneficial changes.


Aged and worn-out flooring surfaces are more difficult to clean and often require patching and refitting, so laying new surfaces can save considerable time and money on maintenance. Choosing a better suited, more durable flooring option often provides the best long-term solution.
