Carpet Tiles

Carpet Tiles, which are also referred to as a modular tile or carpet squares. These have traditionally been used as a commercial flooring installation. Residential tile companies have begun to market products aimed specifically at the residential consumer.

They are square cuts of carpet that can be laid on your floor like tiles. There's no glue to worry about. Depending on where you install your tiles will depend on what thickness you choose to install. Rooms such as the kitchen or bathroom, for example, will require a more even, flat tread.  Bedrooms and living areas can be plusher and have real softness.

The tiles are usually made of nylon materials. The back of the tile is typically comprised of a durable water-repellent material.

The market share of carpet tiles have grown significantly in recent times. They are a popular installation in airports, schools, and other heavy foot traffic areas, because of the ease of installation. There is a main idea behind the installation of carpet tiles in high traffic areas. This is so that they can be easily replaced with tiles from the lower foot traffic areas.

Soiled or damaged tiles can be easily replaced with fresh tiles. This continuous movement of carpet tiles will help maintain a higher appearance level over a longer time period.

Maintaining your floors

They are also easy to maintain. If you do spill something on a tile, you can simply treat the spot whilst the tile is still on the floor. Alternatively, simply remove the tile and treat the spot remotely. 

Then, once you've removed the tile, you can then spot-treat the carpet tile with a mild detergent. A sponge or soft brush may be necessary to remove extra stains. Once the stain is gone, allow the tile to air dry. If the stain is stubborn and requires additional work, you can always replace the offending tile with a different one. Purchasing and storing a few extra carpet tiles is also a good idea.

There are many uses of carpet tiles in everyday use. Here are just some:

Children's bedrooms

Children's bedrooms are ideal for tiles. Why not create your own patterns with different coloured tiles? But the main benefit is because the tiles are durable. They'll last much longer than standard carpeting and they'll be more able to withstand the abuse of little feet and hands.

Ideal for rented accommodation 

If you lease an apartment, chances are that some of the flooring has a lot to be desired. Or, alternatively, you may be a landlord who's renting out a property. Either way, modular tiles are a great, budget-wise solution that fit into practically any room.

Vinyl backed tiles

Vinyl backed tiles will last longer than a normal carpet. As mentioned already, they can save on costly replacement. When a carpet tile gets soiled, worn or permanently damaged, you can simply change it or rather replace it with one from a less noticeable area.

They are also easier to handle, with much greater mobility & efficiency. Carpet tiles are also more convenient than a large roll. Add to that the greater design flexibility; you can create a customised-look with carpet tile with or without the custom price.

Finally, you will benefit from low replacement cost. This also saves on next installation because tile replacement requires less work than traditional carpet installation. You'll basically have a movable floor system! Take advantage of the mobility of carpet tiles when you or your firm relocates. Move with your investment!
