Over time, even the best-maintained and well-cared-for floors will begin to show signs of ageing and wear. However, how do you know when it is the right time to get a new floor? Would it perhaps be easier to have your existing floor repaired or recovered?

All businesses need to make sure they keep a close watch on the bottom line, and replacing flooring can have a significant impact on your profit and loss sheet. For this reason, it pays to be properly informed about why and when you should replace your commercial or industrial flooring.

Here are three of the main reasons why and when you should consider having your flooring replaced

When your old floor is damaged

Cracks, holes, scratches, stains and tears in your flooring are not only unsightly they can also pose a real threat to the health and safety of your employees and your customers. Broken floors can absorb chemicals, result in tripping hazards and can impair the movement of goods, customers and employees throughout your place of work. Damaged floors can also result in your business failing to live up to its obligations under health and safety rules, which could result in hefty fines or worse! Simply put, a floor that is beyond repair must be replaced as soon as possible. If you are unsure if your floor is beyond saving or not, consult reliable and reputable flooring experts like the team from Clifford Flooring.

When your business requirements change

When it comes to the nature of the type of business you are running, all floors are certainly not created equally! If you have recently changed the scope of your business, you may also need to replace your flooring. The hospitality and food industries, as well as the health sector in particular, have very stringent guidelines which must be adhered to by law. Appropriate flooring is an absolute must if you are to comply with the likes of Food Standards Australia’s OH/S Food Premises and Equipment 3.2.3 Standard, Slip Resistance Standard, and HACCP Standard. If you are unsure if your floor meets your new business needs, speak to Clifford Flooring for the right advice.

When you relocate, remodel or renovate

If you have recently moved premises, renovated or remodelled your place of work, then you may need to have a new floor installed. Depending on the type of business you operate, the right floor will help you to comply with all rules and regulations, increase productivity and enhance the aesthetics of your working areas.
