Jan. 22: Why Modular Carpet Tile?

Posted on January 22, 2015 at 11:55 AM

One of the best features of Building 9, is our selection of commercial-grade, indoor modular carpet tiles, or carpet "squares" as they're called. Carpet tiles are a popular flooring choice for the do-it-yourself homeowner, as well as land lords and business owners, too! They're easy to install, easy to maintain, and they come in a wide variety of sizes, colors, and patterns for unlimited design possibilities. (pricing info >)

Why Carpet Tile?

Carpet tile, or modular carpet, offers many advantages. It’s easy to install and easy to clean. If you get a tough stain, just pop out the tile and clean it in a sink. Or, you can replace one tile, not the whole room. And carpet tile is engineered to be tough, that means a long performance life. Plus, it offers infinite design flexibility. In short, carpet tile could be the perfect fit for your installation.

Unlimited Design Flexibility

Because it’s modular, you can mix and match carpet tile colors and patterns to create your own unique look. Or, combine it with other floor coverings for a performance engineered work environment that has visual appeal and fits your long-term flooring budget. Tile can be installed in a variety of ways from monolithic, to complementary, to mix-and-match. The good news is, if you want to change the look, you can simply change out tiles strategically for a fresh appeal. That sure beats scrapping all the flooring and starting over!

Whether it’s cushioned-backed or hard-backed, carpet tile holds up. For high-traffic retail spaces, corporate offices, stain-prone restaurants and everything in between, tile fits the bill. In fact, performance is the reason modular carpet is the floor covering of choice among Fortune 1000 companies. It lasts and looks better longer because it’s built to perform, now and down the road.

Staying Power

For most floor coverings, life cycle is measured in years on the floor. However, modular carpet can be measured by the number of different rooms it has adorned over the years. It’s a long-term flooring solution that can be re-purposed in other work environments with minimal cost. That keeps a lot of carpet out of landfills.

Easy to Install

Modular carpet is easy to install over almost any smooth surface. And because each piece is dimensionally identical to the next, you get a perfectly “square” job every time. Plus, the variety of installation methods allows each space to have its own look and feel. Adhesion techniques also vary, but the bottom line is - tile is glued or free laid - not nailed. That makes it repositionable, even after years on the floor. Because it’s easy to install, you can avoid the downtime usually associated with remodeling.

Easy to Maintain

Modular carpet is typically easy to clean. If you get a tough stain, clean it on the floor or simply pop out the tile and clean it in a sink. Or, in the unlikely event that simple cleaning doesn’t work, you can replace just one tile, not the whole space. That means tenant evacuations for maintenance are a thing of the past and it’s business as usual for everyone. (source:
