Well-being & Carpet Tiles

A carpet tile’s backing is critical to its performance, durability and appearance retention. It is also an important contributor to the well-being of a workplace’s occupants.  

The right backing will not only ensure the carpet tile remains dimensionally stable and flat on the floor, it can also provide acoustic insulation and sustainability benefits. Different environments call for different backing solutions and making the right backing choice is an important part of the carpet specification process. Milliken offers a range of innovative, practical and sustainable options.

Milliken’s cushion backing with 90% recycled content ensures our commercial carpet tiles offer very tangible health and well-being benefits. By providing a more comfortable carpet tile to stand or walk on, it reduces fatigue and through its acoustic properties, it reduces noise levels which can in turn positively impact stress levels. 

Cushion back carpet tiles will also last 40 to 50% longer than hardback carpet tiles as the cushion backing absorbs the effects of wear and protects the face of the carpet. Cushion backing also offers installation, ergonomic, safety and environmental benefits.




Why choose carpet for office space?

When choosing modular carpet for your office space, you have the advantage of choosing a design and colour composition that reflects your office environment and culture. 

Carpet tiles also have the ability to absorb sound in an open space and are made with durable, high-quality materials that are made for longevity in office environments which also reduce the rate of slips and falls. Opting for carpet also provides insulation for colder working environments and actually improves indoor air quality. Consider cushion backed options for better acoustics and insulation.


What type of carpet is suitable for the workplace?

Finding a carpet that is suitable for your workplace depends on the space, lighting and room composition. If you first define your environment profile you can then determine expectations for your carpet. Firstly, consider thinking about the type of facility you have and how long the carpet will be used for. Also think about the following: What type of dirt might be tracked into the facility? Is there modular furniture in the space? Are there likely to be spills - how often? Make sure to consider the amount of foot traffic going in and out of your workplace, in this case, an entrance flooring system might be the best option.


How thick is a commercial carpet?

Commercial-grade carpet tiles normally have a thickness of 0.25” with a maximum density of 10Ibs./cu ft. Milliken offers cushion-backed carpet tiles that are thick, durable and have a ‘Class 33 Heavy Commercial Use’ for Wear Performance.



How long does commercial carpet last in an office?


If commercial carpet is properly maintained it should last between 10-30 years. This depends on initial carpet quality, foot traffic, as well as how well it is maintained, cleaned and any damage that occurs over the period. Regular cleaning and maintenance are crucial to prolonging the life expectancy of the carpet.



How often should office carpet tiles be cleaned?


Carpet tiles should be vacuumed daily to ensure longevity. Professional deep cleaning should also be carried out on a yearly basis to reduce the build-up of moisture in carpet fibres. For more information see how to clean your office carpet tiles
