Low Maintenance Flooring For Commercial Locations 


It can be a little difficult to choose the right flooring for commercial properties. You want something that looks good, is resilient enough to withstand how foot traffic and heavy loads, and doesn’t require a lot of maintenance. This limits your options to a few flooring materials in the market. At Custom Concrete Floors, we recommend the options mentioned below:

Concrete has just broken into the residential sphere but has been a favourite with commercial property owners for several years now. This flooring material is very resilient and can easy bear heavy traffic and loads. It’s also sturdy and can’t be damaged easily, which can save money on repairs. If the concrete floor is damaged and develops cracks or dents, it can be easily repaired at a low cost.

Concrete is also relatively affordable in comparison to materials like wood, brick, or linoleum. Freshly poured concrete can cost anywhere between $1 and $3 per square foot, which makes it a great choice for commercial properties. Different types of concrete require different levels of maintenance.

  • Polished Concrete – You need to apply a good coating on top of the polished concrete to ensure it is protected against scratches and dents. You’ll just need to sweep and mop the surface to keep it clean and glossy and apply seals or coats once every few years. This will ensure the polished concrete floors last for a long time.
  • Stained Concrete – Acid stains tend to penetrate the concrete surface and bind with the material so they’ll last for a long time. Just dust and mop the surface to preserve its looks. You’ll need to use a pH neutral cleaner to ensure you don’t damage the stained finish.

Other Materials

There are other low-maintenance commercial floors available in the market. While these aren’t as resilient as concrete, they can be a good alternative:

  • Linoleum
  • Ceramic Tile
  • Vinyl
  • Laminate

These flooring options are popular with commercial property owners because they look good, are easy and affordable to install, and are low maintenance. Linoleum, vinyl, and laminate floors don’t take too much time to install, which reduces business downtime as well.
