The main advantage of carpet tile is that you can replace a damaged or worn area without having to replace the whole carpet. Modular carpet tiles located underneath furniture. It can be replaced with those in the high-traffic areas to even outwear. They also allow easy access to under-floor wiring or plumbing. Extra replacement tiles should be purchased with the main batch, as those bought at a later date will almost certainly be a slightly different color.
Modular carpet tile simplifies the awkward job of carpet tile installation. Placement requires less time and few special tools. This type of flooring can be chosen for any room. Using carpet tile saves time when installing and replacing. For example, all the furniture does not have to be removed from a room to install or replace carpet tiles; you simply move the furniture from one end to the other. If you’re installing traditional broadloom carpeting, you have to clear the room and do a lot of prep work.
Carpet Tile Styles
For ease of use, Carpet tile can be purchased either dry-backed or self-sticking. The dry-backed version needs a special adhesive or, for less permanent jobs, double-faced tape. These can go over almost any surface, as long as it is clean and dry. However, it is not highly recommended for use in below-ground areas, such as a basement, because it could mildew.
If an area of the carpet becomes stained, burned, or worn looking, all you have to do is pull up those squares and replace them, as opposed to replacing the entire area. Most recently, with the larger-scale patterns that are available, you can install one dye lot and, two years later, you can put another dye lot right beside it. That’s a big advantage because it means you don’t have to keep attic stock on hand.
Modular carpet’s ease of maintenance and ease of installation and replacement add up to low life-cycle costs. But other factors contribute to this benefit, too. Carpet tile installations are generally very rugged and handle high-traffic areas well. This style of carpet tile is produced with a heavy backing, which serves as a cushion that absorbs the wear of the face fibers and prevents their premature loss. Yet another factor is less waste. If you have an 8-ft, corridor, and you’re installing 12-ft. broadloom, you have four feet of waste. With carpet tile, you may only have to cut a small portion off a small percentage of tiles to fit the same area.
Carpet tiles are a little more expensive than broadloom upfront because of the backing and the cutting process. But because of the heaviness of the backing and the type of construction, you get a longer wear cycle out of the carpet tile.
