Commercial carpet is typically used in commercial properties and is better adapted to these settings for a number of reasons. There are differences between this type of flooring and the material used in residential properties.

Durability and economy are the most important priorities when producing commercial flooring. Businesses experience a much higher degree of foot traffic, so its flooring needs to be able to take the punishment. Residential flooring installed in these areas would deteriorate quickly and be flattened right away, taking away its plush feel. Commercial material generally has a short pile and tight looping, providing it with the density needed to spring back under pressure.
