A Brief History of Carpet Tiles

History of Carpet Tiles

The concept of flooring tile goes back thousands of years when hard surfaces of various rock forms, baked clay, and ceramic were being used. The early users of these initial tile flooring types needed something to cover their dirt floors that were of a size that could be easily carried to where the floor was located. These hard surface types of flooring preceded woven grasses and fabrics that were used to cover the ground; such as, mats and rugs. As civilization progressed, wood tiles and certain forms of metal, glass, and rubber tiles were used. Also, finely finished rocks; such as, limestone and granite, were being improved for the “now” classic look of stone tiles.

Flash forward to the mid-nineteenth century and you find the first carpet tiles being used. It was then that a small Dutch company outside of Amsterdam, Holland, made the first “true” carpet tile. The name of this company was Heuga and their initial business was making bicycle seat covers with animal hides. They purchased a needle punch machine which enabled them to use the horse and hog hair yarn to manufacture wider width fabric ideal for carpet tiles. Heuga strived, at this relatively early date, to make sure that they were using a waste by-product from local slaughter houses. Not only did they continue to cut their bicycle seats from this new fabric, but they also began to sell rugs and broadloom carpet. However, they were still concerned with using as much of the product as they could to eliminate waste. They began experimenting with putting an asphalt (bitumen) backing on their fabric to give it stiffness and further durability plus dimensional stability. They cut the fabric into 10 inch squares so the homes and commercial buildings using their product didn’t create the waste they did when cutting in a wall-to-wall carpet installation.

Carpet Tile Ideal For Rental Properties

Carpet Tile Perfect for Rental Property

More and more I receive calls from customers that own rental property that are looking for away to lower cost to fix up units to rent for the first time or in between tenants. Here is the question I get a lot. Do you think carpet tiles would be a good solution for me? It is not just a good solution, but it is a wonderful no-nonsense solution. The best part about carpet tile is it can be a cheaper cost than Broadloom (wall to wall carpet). It is a DIY job so you do not have to hire an installer and pay out a lot of cash for labor and materials. We know that contractors and installers most of the time mark up the material they use. With carpet tiles that money can stay in your pocket and that is a good feeling.

How easy are carpet tiles to replace? Well, say your tenants move out and as you inspect the place you notice that in the living area that there is a big grape juice stain on the floor (everyone’s worst nightmare). All you have to do is pull it up and put another one down in its place. That simple, thanks to the releasable adhesive. No need to replace the whole thing or stretch it again like with wall to wall carpet. That keeps money in your wallet for a longer period of time and that is what we all need. Carpet tiles are very durable and long lasting and have moisture and vapor barrier as well. This keeps your rental property safer from damage to the subfloor due to spilled liquids penetrating down to it. Less money you have to spend on floor repairs.

Over all carpet tile is perfect in most situations, like in the rental property business. They are cheap in price, easy to install, durable, long lasting, and a great DIY money saving project for most everybody including home owners, and small business owners. So if you are one of those people who like to save money and do it yourself then carpet tile is for you. Good luck and we will see you on the job.

Home Theater Carpet Solutions

Home Theater CarpetA home theater system is an investment in entertainment, and to some it is an obsession. We spend billions on electronics each year in this country. Our big screen television sets, amplifiers, speakers, Blu-Ray players, subwoofers, and every other component of our theater system are chosen with the utmost thought and care. Some of us go as far as to tune our systems and measure our speaker placement. But even if you are an aficionado and have done everything imaginable you may be missing out on perfection.  “What’s left?” you may ask. What is missing is the perfect sound absorbing floor covering – home theater carpet. The best carpet for the home theater is carpet tile.

I know you’re thinking what carpet tile could have to do with your home theater system. Just imagine having your system set up inside a cathedral: a large open room with surfaces that don’t absorb a single sound wave. Can you imagine what the quality of the sound might be? Think of the amount of reverb that would be coming back at you. You wouldn’t even be able to understand the dialogue in a movie. Now think about what materials are in a cathedral: stone, wood, glass, brick, etc. Look around your living room and what do you see? More than likely you are seeing the same types of building materials. Unfortunately, most homes aren’t constructed with the home theater system in mind.
