Carpet tiles can be easily removed for replacement or cleaned like any other carpet. Spill something and now there’s an impossible-to-remove stain? No problem! Just replace that tile, and your whole floor will look like new! Compare that to something like a broadloom carpet roll, where you would have to pull up the whole floor just to replace one section. Avoid that nightmare with carpet tile.

Superior Durability

Carpet tiles have been engineered to withstand high traffic and lots of use because they were originally designed for commercial spaces like offices. Really heavy-duty carpet tiles have low-pile fibers that resist crushing and matting, so they’ll last longer and look great for years to come.
