Carpet tiles, also known as carpet squares, have been popular in the commercial market over the past several years. They cover the floors of many office buildings, airports, and businesses.
There are some benefits to carpet tiles, such as the ability to swap out a tile if it has a large stain, but cleaning carpet tiles can be a trick process though. Here are some tips for caring for carpet squares.
Preventative Maintenance And Cleaning
You should be caring for you carpet tiles just like you would for your regular carpeted area. This includes regular vacuuming, as well as spot cleaning when needed. Leaving behind dirt, debris, and stains damages the fibers and shortens the length of the carpet squares. Remember, high traffic areas might even need to be vacuumed every day. If a spill occurs, be sure to react quickly and gently blot any surface liquid immediately.
Remember The Pros And Cons Of Installing Carpet Squares
One of the pros of carpet tiles is that they are simple to maintain, only requiring regular vacuuming and the occasional deep clean. Carpet squares tend to catch and keep any spills on the surface, without it getting down into the fibers, making it easier to clean. However, when a liquid spill does occur, it can spread and cover the floor tile further than it would be able to on a carpet with longer fibers.
You Can Replace A Worn Or Stained Carpet Tile With A New Square
Damaged or stained tiles can be removed and then replaced easily with a new square. However, keep in mind that sometimes the new tile won’t blend with the other squares seamlessly since the others around it have been used. Sometimes it’s better to replace a damaged and very visible tile with a used tile from somewhere else that isn’t as well seen. This makes the visible tile blend in better with the tiles around, while the new tile gets put out of sight.
