We always suggest choosing a commercial rated carpet for rental properties. Whilst is it seems logical to choose a domestic rated option for a residential rental property, a commercial carpet is the better option for these situations. Rental properties tend to be at a higher risk of damage due to careless tenants and guests and therefore require a more heavy duty option for their flooring.
Commercial carpets will provide the extra protection and durability, while still looking and feeling excellent in the room. With new styles and plush underlays, commercial carpets can feel as comfortable as any domestic option and sometimes look even better. In comparison to a domestic rated option, commercial rated carpets are:
- Easy to clean
- Made to withstand wear and tear
- Coloured to hide stains
- Fire rated
- Made to higher quality standards
- Longer lasting
These are excellent benefits and will make sure that your investment in new carpet is solid and long lasting. The price for a commercial carpet is usually only $5-$10/metre more expensive than a domestic rated option, but is well worth the extra cost. These carpets will last years longer.
So, next time you?re looking to purchase new flooring for a rental property, think twice about your options and make the right choice, it will make a big difference! Check out our most popular commercial carpets for rental properties: Oxford and Harvard.
