Commercial carpets are manufactured specifically to withstand the rigor of the environment where they are installed, whether that is in a restaurant, bank, school or government building. Developed to better resist wear and stains in high traffic areas, most commercial carpets are tightly looped, multi-patterned and durable.



The vinyl used in commercial installations is durable, attractive and, most importantly, conforms to the health codes at restaurants, hospitals, schools and veterinary clinics.


Our sales team can help find you the right solution for your site and, because of our years of experience, our installers can use the right application on every job.



Linoleum is one of the greenest floors manufactured today, made of natural materials like linseed oil, limestone and cork dust and then mounted on jute backing.


Many businesses install linoleum to add an attractive color or pattern. Linoleum needs to be maintained so that it retains its beauty and durability.



Luxury Vinyl Tile is a great choice for businesses looking to install a floor that looks and sounds like real wood, stone or tile, but is easier to maintain. Typically made in either planks or large squares, LVTs can be installed either with an adhesive or in a tongue and groove fashion.


All LVTs come with cushioned backs, which eliminates the hollow sound other laminate floors give off.



Many schools use Vinyl Composition Tile (VCT) in hallways, because it’s strong and durable. VCT comes in random pattern 12-inch squares that are glued down.


These floors need to be professionally maintained — meaning buffed and waxed periodically — in order to look their best.



Business owners and property managers use Carpet Tile in situations where access to the floor (when electrical conduit is running underneath, for instance) is critical, where office reconfiguration happens often or if there is increased risk of spill or stain.


Each carpet tile is self-contained and guaranteed not to run. Each mill provides a pattern repeat map, so the floor looks consistent.



A popular pick these days, hardwood and laminate floors offer simple elegance and utility. There are a number of options to consider, including an interesting array of styles, materials, cuts and coatings. Straus Carpets professionals can show you what’s available to best fit your room and lifestyle.
