If you are considering installing carpet tiles, there are many reasons why carpet tiles offer a better solution over broadloom carpet. Here are the top 5 reasons why you should opt for carpet tile for your floors.

Easy to Clean and Replace

Carpet tiles are a lot easier to clean that broadloom carpet. Broadloom carpet costs more because it roughly once a month, you’ll need to do a deep clean on the carpet, which can be costly. Carpet tiles are also easier to replace if they become damaged. For example, if there is a spill, you can just replace the affected tiles rather than having the replace the entire carpet.

Easy to Install

Carpet tiles are easier and faster to install than broadloom carpet. In comparison to broadloom carpet, carpet tiles take about 20 percent less time to install. The reason is that carpet tiles come in boxes so that they can be easily transported to and from the installation site.




In contrast, a roll of carpet needs to fit through door openings which can create unnecessary hassle. Carpet tile is also easier to install in rooms that aren’t a standard size because you can cut them to fit the shape of the room with less risk of major errors as compared to cutting a roll of carpet.

Recycled carpet tiles can be turned into plastic car parts, medical equipment, and even brand new carpet.

In addition, you can also stop carpet from ending up in landfills where so much of it already does each year.
