Interlocking floor tiles can also be treated exactly as any other flooring when cleaned. There are no special products required for cleaning interlocking tile floors, unless the materials making up those tiles require special care. Standard floor cleaners will work just fine on interlocking floor tiles and no special care is needed.
Carpet is probably the most common floor covering that is used in residential homes. It comes in a wide variety of colors and textures. Carpet consists of woven fibers, which protrude upwards, glued or woven into a foam or jute backing. Often an underpad of pressed foam is installed below it or the backing can be integral with the carpet, adding to the softness and providing a much more comfortable surface for walking on. Carpet is installed by either gluing the carpet to the sub-floor, or the use of carpet tack around the perimeter. A good carpet will has a close weave, which will not show the backing material when separated. To reduce project costs, some contractors will opt to install a high quality underlay, with a low or medium quality carpet. This provides the soft surface, with equal durability, giving the homeowner the benefits of high quality carpet, at a reduced cost.
In the case of long span truss work, bearing lengths of at least 3" are quite common. Trusses span greater distances than framed floor assemblies and can be designed to span the entire building, eliminating center load bearing supports. They are moderately more expensive than framed floor assemblies, but provide a remarkably strong floor with little deflection or "bounce" to it. Another advantage to this type of structural system, is that utility installations can be run between the webwork components. Never allow trades to cut or drill into the members of a truss, for they are manufactured precisely for the loading conditions they will undergo during the life of the building.
They are more durable and easy to clean than carpet or wood floors. They can also increase a property`s value. There are more design options available with tile floors than with carpeting or wood. Tile floors can be customized to match any decor. Unfortunately, the cost of installing tile floors can be high. In addition, the installation can be a lengthy and inconvenient process. For those seeking to avoid the expense and time involved in installation, interlocking floor tiles can be an attractive alternative.
