Consider Flooring Maintenance in Cost Comparisons

floorcovering, maintenance, life-cycle cost

June 16, 2010 - Flooring

If you're trying to decide what flooring is best for your facility, don't forget to factor in maintenance costs.

No flooring is maintenance free. Depending on the manufacturer's recommendations and your organization's expectations of appearance, all floorcoverings will require some sort of maintenance.

Floorcoverings that have an appealing low initial cost may have high maintenance costs in the long-term. Floorcoverings that have higher initial costs may have lower overall maintenance costs. It's important to calculate these costs into the life-cycle cost of the flooring in order to compare apples to apples and make the best decision for your facility and your budget.
