Flooring pertains to the permanent coating or covering of a floor and can consist of carpet, hardwood, rubber, tile, stone, linoleum, vinyl, terrazzo, and other various types. Noted as a finish trade, commercial flooring is installed over the base foundation in construction known as the subfloor. The selection of the type of flooring used in construction projects is based upon several factors, such as use, endurance, cost, noise insulation, ease of cleaning, and comfort.
There are generally 2 types of subflooring, either earthen made of clay or solid ground made of cement or similar compound. Wood flooring also has 2 general forms known as parquet and plank. Eco-friendly or green products used in flooring can include cork flooring because the tree it is cut from is not damaged when cut for material. They are also very durable thus the need for replacement is delayed.
Resilient flooring contains elastic material and produced into sheet vinyl, vinyl composition tile, linoleum, rubber, eco-friendly cork, and other types.
Carpet consists of continuous sheets of manmade fibers known as polypropylene and attached to a backing. A more common type of quick flooring is the use of carpet tiles especially in commercial projects and or office and industrial space. Carpet can be woven, needlefelt, knotted, tufted, flatweaved, or hooked. One disadvantage to the use of carpet in flooring is its need for quicker replacement and limited ease of cleaning.
