And of course, we've been doing a lot of work in the hospitality sector as the industry gears back up to re-open after almost a year of lockdown due to the virus.

What is the best flooring for retail space?
The best flooring for retail space depends on the type of business. A food retailer will require a hygienic floor that is easily cleaned and resists spillages and bacterial growth, whereas a furniture retailer may prefer the more luxurious appearance of fitted carpet or carpet tiles. Usually, a floor finish should be unobtrusive and not detract from the goods that the retailer is selling, but some outlets such as pubs and restaurants will want to create comfortable surroundings and the floor finish can contribute to this. For example, a warm oak floor in a country pub will create a far nicer ambiance than a more practical vinyl.
Is vinyl flooring good for commercial use?
Vinyl flooring is excellent for commercial use. It is tough and resilient, resistant to spilled liquids, and is easy to mop. Vinyl flooring is available as a sheet product or LVT (Luxury Vinyl Tile) and is offered in many different designs and colours. Sheet vinyl can be specified as a safety flooring with improved slip resistance, with different grades manufactured for specific end uses. For example, more robust products may be specified for safety for both bare and shod feet in sports changing rooms or where excess grease could be a factor, such as commercial kitchens.

What is commercial vinyl flooring?

Commercial vinyl flooring is designed specifically to withstand the rigours of commercial use. It needs to be tougher and more hard wearing than the domestic equivalent and withstand aggressive chemical cleaning with industrial strength cleaning products. Frequent cleaning in a commercial environment calls for a floor that will not fade or become worn during the maintenance process. Commercial vinyl offers protection to the sub floor against moisture ingress. Domestic products tend to be purely decorative.

What is the best flooring for a business?

There are many different factors to consider when selecting a floor finish for a business. These include durability, appearance, ease of maintenance and cost effectiveness. Specific requirements must be taken into consideration such as whether slipping is a potential hazard, or if an element of sound proofing is required. The demands put upon the floor finish will guide your choice - some floors will be more suitable for your requirements than others. Once you have established the most practical solution you can then assess whether to choose a sheet or modular product. Carpet tiles and Luxury Vinyl Tiles can minimise wastage over the equivalent broadloom carpet or sheet vinyl.

How long does commercial flooring last?

The lifespan of a commercial floor depends upon the type of usage it will sustain. The correct product, properly installed and maintained, should last for at least ten years. It is not unusual for commercial floors to last for double this amount of time providing the correct specification floor covering has been selected for the work it has to do, and the floor covering has been maintained in line with the manufacturer’s recommendations.

Is vinyl better than laminate?

Vinyl is 100% synthetic whereas laminate is manufactured from wood products. Consequently, vinyl is more stable in high temperatures and is completely waterproof. The wood core of a laminate board will swell if it gets wet. Modern laminates can feel more comfortable underfoot, but vinyl is more versatile and can be installed anywhere, it withstands aggressive cleaning and can be completely soaked. Laminate should just be swept or mopped with a mop that is virtually dry. The final choice comes down to personal preference based upon the demands that will be made of the floor.
