From Shabby to Chic: How Simple Flooring Touches Can Transform Your Commercial SpaceAugust 24, 2023
The sun is a welcome friend after a rainy start to the summer this year; however, sunshine is no ally of commercial flooring. Over time, sun damage can fade certain flooring types making them appear dingy and patchy. The good news is that not all floors are affected by sunlight, and you can also take preventative measures to ensure your floors last. Keep reading to learn all about sunshine and commercial flooring.
What Flooring Types Are Affected by Sunlight?
Laminate, vinyl, and carpet are the three flooring types most commonly affected by sunlight. Hardwood that is darker is also not immune to sun damage; however, it’s important to note that all kinds of flooring damage caused by UV can take years to show on your floors.
Another essential factor to consider is that commercial flooring in the tri-state area is less susceptible to sun damage than flooring in a sunnier region. Therefore, while sunlight is still a concern for these types of flooring regardless of location, odds are your business in the New Jersey area doesn’t see the type of sunlight that can dramatically alter your floors in just a few short years.
What Are Some Preventative Measures?
Some basic preventative measures you can take are ensuring that your curtains, blinds, or shades stay closed on very sunny days or investing in UV protectant film for your windows. Yet, the most productive way of protecting your investment is ensuring that you’ve selected a quality product shown to increase the lifespan of your floors.
Quality floors won’t fade or sustain UV damage as quickly as lesser-quality flooring; therefore, enlisting the help of our team at Commercial Flooring & Interior Concepts to select high-quality products will keep your floors looking new for longer.
