Low-Maintenance Commercial Flooring

by | Sep 30, 2022 | Commercial Flooring

When considering commercial flooring in Edmonton, the main criteria you need to consider before proceeding is durability and ease of maintenance. Edmonton’s winters can be brutal with employees or customers dragging in the mud or snow into your newly renovated space. Rather than spending time and money renovating your flooring every other year due to wear and tear, consider installing low-maintenance commercial flooring. Read on to learn more about Ashley Fine Flooring’s wide range of low-maintenance commercial flooring.


Carpets are generally known for their wide variety of textures and colours, but they’re also popular for being low maintenance. As most commercial carpets are made with short loop pile fibres, they are highly durable and easy to maintain. The short pile height won’t be easily matted or crushed, making it perfect for areas with high foot traffic. You won’t have to worry about installing carpeting in your office space as it doesn’t take as much time as other flooring options, and can be installed in as little as a few hours.

Not only is carpet flooring easy to install, but it is also easily cleaned. It is extra durable against footprints, vacuum trains and dirt, which can be seamlessly vacuumed in a matter of seconds. Whether you decide to install nylon, polypropylene or polyester carpet, you will have a commercial space that is durable, looks trendy and feels comfortable while still being low-maintenance.

Laminate Flooring

While carpet is an excellent option for low-maintenance flooring, it can lack a feeling of luxury and elegance. If you’re looking for a flooring option that is low-maintenance and easy to clean yet mimics the style and texture of wood and stone flooring, then laminate flooring is the right choice for you.

Laminate flooring is manufactured from synthetic materials that allow for beautiful flooring that is stylish, elegant and easy to maintain. Since laminate flooring is coated with a scratch and stain-resistant coating layer, it’s very easy to maintain. You can install it in the kitchen, bathroom or entrance without worrying about moisture or scratches. Most laminate flooring can handle a certain extent of moisture levels and is effortlessly cleaned using a damp mop and a microfibre towel.

Tile Flooring

Tile flooring would be best for entryways and lobbies in your office space or commercial building as they can withstand high foot traffic areas. They’re also a fabulous choice for any luxury space as the variety of options provides you with a visual impact that elevates your space.

Tile flooring is quite popular in commercial spaces as it is 100% waterproof when glazed. From ceramic to porcelain tiles, you’ll find a large selection of options to choose from that are both durable and stylish. Given the thickness and sturdiness of tile flooring, they are an excellent choice for high foot traffic areas. They can last for over 10 to 20 years with minimal maintenance and regular cleaning. A quick mop or sweep will keep your floors looking as good as new!
