Allwood Flooring Commercial Maintenance Program — Guide to maximize life of wood flooring in commercial applications
Wood flooring: Is it durable enough for commercial use?
The short answer is, “Yes absolutely”. In fact, when maintained
properly, not only can wood floors last longer than most other
options in commercial settings, real hardwood has numerous
additional advantages as well—making it a more sustainable
and economic choice.
Hardwood flooring is an excellent solution for both residential
and commercial, moderate-to-heavy use areas. They feel elegant
and inviting, are easy to install, simple to clean, and can actually
improve indoor air quality. Compared to vinyl or tile, wood flooring
is more environmentally-friendly to produce and is also biodegradable; where vinyl is not.
Hardwood is extremely durable and able to withstand a large amount of foot traffic. As an example, the Copenhagen Airport in Denmark has had wood flooring since the 1960s. Over fifty years on, with nearly 23 million passengers annually, they still look amazing.
Even in the most demanding locations, given adequate care wood floors can last for generations.
