It’s officially back-to-school time as the little ones make their way back into the classroom. It also means teachers will begin to break out the classroom decorations and assemble their classroom into the best learning environment possible.
One aspect of a classroom, especially in elementary schools, that shouldn’t be overlooked is flooring. The school flooring is important for many things, such as safety and noise reduction.
Our recommendation is carpeting, and here are some reasons why.
Children are constantly playing on the ground, and carpet can add a level of comfort. Imagine sitting and sliding around on a hard surface every day. Carpet can keep those elbows and knees safe and sound as little ones indulge in some activities on the floor.
Carpet also provides great traction, which means less slip-and-fall accidents. During those wet months, slip-and-fall accidents happen often, but carpet can help limit such accidents.
During those cold winter months, carpet is actually a great insulator, trapping the heat in your room.
Schools are already noisy enough, and the constant sound of students, staff and visitors walking up and down the halls or in the classroom can be distracting. Carpet will help reduce the noise you hear in your school.
Every school is different and has different needs. Carpet isn’t always the best choice, but it checks off many important advantages in most schools. If your school or a certain classroom is in need of some new flooring, give us a call as we do commercial installations.
