One of the most important things to consider is durability. Commercial floors typically need to withstand heavy foot traffic, so they need to be strong, stable, and wear resistant. The floors should be durable enough to withstand everything life has to offer, such as unexpected drops and falls. Commercial-grade vinyl flooring provides enough durability for commercial settings, and it also remains stylish as well.
Given the volume of foot traffic in most commercial settings, slip resistance is particularly important. For obvious reasons, floors with textured surfaces are more slip resistant than those with smooth surfaces. Porcelain tile, for example, has a rugged surface that remains slip resistant and can even resist water.
General floor maintenance is also something that needs to be considered. Floors that require only basic maintenance (sweeping, mopping, etc.) are favorable in commercial settings, mainly because commercial areas are more spacious than residential areas. Commercial carpet, although it is strong enough for heavy foot traffic, is not always recommended since it needs to be cleaned more often than vinyl or porcelain.
