Frequently Asked Questions

Your Questions Answered

Q: Why choose wood flooring for commercial environments?

A: Commercial wood flooring offers numerous benefits, including durability, timeless aesthetic appeal, improved indoor air quality, and the potential for long-term cost savings. It creates a warm, inviting atmosphere that can enhance brand image and leave a lasting impression on clients and employees alike.

Q: How does wood flooring compare to other commercial flooring options?

A: Compared to options like vinyl or carpet, wood flooring offers superior longevity, easier maintenance, and a higher-end appearance. While initial costs may be higher, the long-term value and durability of wood flooring often result in a better return on investment for commercial spaces.

Q: Can wood flooring contribute to LEED or BREEM certification for commercial buildings?

A: Yes, certain wood flooring options can contribute to LEED or BREEM certification. Using FSC-certified or reclaimed wood, you can earn points in the Materials and Resources category. Additionally, wood flooring’s potential to improve indoor air quality can contribute to Indoor Environmental Quality credits.

Q: Can wood flooring withstand heavy foot traffic in commercial settings?

A: Yes, properly installed and finished commercial wood flooring is highly durable and can withstand heavy foot traffic when maintained correctly. Hardwood species like oak, maple, and walnut are particularly well-suited for high-traffic commercial environments.

Q: What finishes are best for commercial wood floors to enhance durability?

A: Commercial-grade polyurethane finishes, particularly aluminium oxide ones, offer excellent durability for high-traffic areas. UV-cured finishes and oil-based finishes can also provide robust protection. The choice depends on the specific needs of your commercial space.

Q: How often does commercial wood flooring need to be refinished?

A: With proper maintenance, commercial wood flooring typically needs refinishing every 3-7 years, depending on foot traffic and wear patterns. Regular maintenance can extend the time between refinishing, saving on long-term costs.

Q: What daily maintenance is needed for commercial wood floors?

A: Daily maintenance includes regular sweeping or dust mopping to remove dirt and debris. Use walk-off mats at entrances to minimise dirt tracked onto the floor. Promptly clean up spills to prevent staining or damage.

Q: How should commercial wood floors be cleaned?

A: Use a damp mop with a pH-neutral wood floor cleaner weekly or as needed. Avoid excess water and harsh chemicals. For deeper cleaning, consider professional cleaning services specialising in commercial wood flooring.

Q: Are there any special considerations for maintaining wood floors in retail or restaurant settings?

A: In retail or restaurant environments, consider using felt pads under the furniture legs to prevent scratches. Implement a regular schedule for moving rugs or display fixtures to ensure even wear. Areas prone to spills, like near cash registers or dining areas, use protective mats to guard against water damage.

Q: How long does commercial wood flooring installation typically take?

A: Installation times vary based on project size and complexity, typically ranging from 3 to 10 days for most commercial spaces. Factors like subfloor preparation, material acclimation, and specific installation methods can affect the timeline.

Q: Can wood flooring be installed over existing commercial flooring?

A: Depending on the condition and type of the existing floor, wood flooring can often be installed over it. This can save time and reduce costs. However, a professional assessment is necessary to determine feasibility and ensure proper installation.

Q: What subfloor preparations are necessary for commercial wood flooring installation?

A: Proper subfloor preparation is crucial for a successful installation. This may include levelling, moisture testing, and installing appropriate underlayment. Our team at Martin Allen Flooring conducts thorough subfloor assessments to ensure optimal conditions for installation.

Q: What sustainable wood flooring options are available for commercial spaces?

A: We offer several eco-friendly options, including FSC-certified wood, which ensures responsible forest management, and reclaimed wood, which repurposes existing materials. These options appeal to environmentally conscious businesses and can contribute to green building certifications.

Q: How does eco-friendly wood flooring impact a business’s sustainability goals?

A: Choosing sustainable wood flooring can significantly contribute to a business’s environmental initiatives. It demonstrates a commitment to responsible sourcing, can reduce the carbon footprint of your commercial space, and may help in achieving green building certifications like LEED or BREEAM.

Q: Are there any performance differences between eco-friendly and traditional wood flooring options?

A: Eco-friendly wood flooring options can perform just as well as traditional options in terms of durability and aesthetics. In some cases, reclaimed wood may even offer superior hardness and unique character due to its age and previous use.

Q: Can wood flooring help reduce energy costs in commercial buildings?

A: Yes, wood flooring can contribute to energy efficiency. It provides natural insulation, potentially reducing heating and cooling costs in your commercial space. The thermal properties of wood can help maintain a more consistent indoor temperature, leading to lower HVAC demands.

Q: How does the insulation value of wood flooring compare to other commercial flooring options?

A: Wood flooring generally offers better insulation than materials like tile or concrete. While it may not match the insulation properties of carpet, it provides a good balance of thermal efficiency and ease of maintenance, making it an excellent choice for commercial spaces.

Q: Are there specific wood flooring options that offer better energy efficiency?

A: Engineered wood flooring often provides better insulation than solid hardwood due to its layered construction. Additionally, thicker wood flooring generally offers improved insulation properties. Our team can help you select the best option for your energy efficiency goals. Contact us today.
