What is in a Commercial Flooring Warranty?

If youโ€™re like most people, you have no desire to read the warranties for the floors in your facility. This isnโ€™t a problem if your floor care provider is well acquainted with whatโ€™s in them, but if they arenโ€™t, this will likely become a costly issue for you down the road. Commercial flooring warranties tend to be short, rarely more than two pages, but no matter their size and no matter their brand, they all specify that to keep them fully intact, their floors must be installed and maintained per their recommendations. Put another way, if you fail to follow the manufacturerโ€™s recommendations for the installation and maintenance of your commercial floors, you will void your floorsโ€™ warranties.


Your floorsโ€™ warranties specify how long your floors will last and what you need to do if your floors have an issue during this time. Warranties are specific and not one-size-fits-all, and your floor care provider should understand this. The same type of carpet from different manufacturers may have very different maintenance recommendations. If your floor care professional cleans every carpet the same way, they will probably void your carpetโ€™s warranty.


Commercial flooring warranties vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, but nearly all of them have the following sections (and may have additional sections):


๐…๐ข๐ง๐ข๐ฌ๐ก ๐–๐š๐ซ๐ซ๐š๐ง๐ญ๐ฒ: The manufacturer states that the finish on their flooring wonโ€™t wear down from normal use.

This section of the warranty can be voided, for example, by failing to clean and maintain the flooring properly.

If your professional floor care provider is familiar with your flooring warranties, they will know how to maintain your floors properlyโ€”keeping them looking their best for as long as possibleโ€”while also ensuring that your flooring warranties remain intact.
