How Long do Carpet Tiles Last?

How Long do Carpet Tiles Last?

Posted by Caitlin Davis on 8th May 2024

Here at Floormart, we stock and supply a wide range of carpet tiles available to buy online. Carpet Tiles are an incredibly popular product with domestic and commercial customers. A common question we receive is ‘how long do carpet tiles last?’ This is mostly because customers want to know how long their investment is going to last for.

Are carpet tiles worth it?

Carpet tiles that are fitted in high-traffic environments such as schools or an office will not last as long as carpet tiles that are fitted in relatively low traffic, domestic settings. The high-quality carpet tiles we supply should last between 10 and 20 years. Carpet tiles are ideal if the flooring is prone to stains and are made from hard-wearing materials - meaning they maintain their appearance for longer than many other floor coverings.

What are the benefits of carpet tiles?

The biggest benefit of choosing carpet tiles for a space, is how simple it is to replace tiles in accident and damage-prone areas. If a carpet tile or two becomes worn or damaged, you can easily replace the affected tiles - instead of the whole floor covering. Considering this, we recommend purchasing some extra tiles when purchasing your floor covering.

How do you protect carpet tiles?

The best way to protect carpet tiles that are subject to excessive wear in high-traffic areas, is to install entrance matting in doorways and at entrances to the building. This is an effective way to combat dirt and damp being walked through the building and it also helps keep carpet tiles clean, with debris and muck being transferred to the matting, not the tiles. This will maintain the appearance of your carpet tiles for longer, leading to less overall maintenance.

How to maintain carpet tiles?

Carpet tile maintenance is incredibly simple. Follow this short guide to maintain your carpet tiles appearance and overall quality.

  1. Firstly, hoover the tiles thoroughly to remove any loose dirt and debris.
  2. If a stain occurs, simply remove the tile for cleaning.
  3. Clean using a gentle carpet cleaner and rinse.
  4. Ensure carpet tiles are fully dry before fitting again.
