Your flooring experience with us typically begins with one of our commercial sales team members.

We consider this to be a unique attribute of our company in contrast to many of our peers in the flooring industry. We consider the handling of your project after the point of sale to be as important as the initial selection process.

LIFT SYSTEMS

Replacing carpet in an large space can be daunting – with Cherry Carpet, it doesn’t have to be

Moving furniture & office equipment is time consuming & typically ends up resulting in a virtual office shutdown.

It doesn’t have to be this way. Cherry Carpet has the lift systems required to make your facility flooring renovation fast & efficient while keeping your employee downtime to a minimum.

Our furniture lift technology is the efficient & economical alternative to dismantling & moving office furniture during installation. Our trained technicians simply lift the furniture off the floor with a hand-controlled jacking system without disconnecting existing electronics or breaking down furniture systems.

We can then easily remove & reclaim the existing floor covering & install your new flooring, all of which can be done while your business is closed. This minimizes interruption & saving you up to 40% of the cost of a conventional commercial flooring installation.

New floors will incrementally replace the old to create a refurbished work area or office with no down time in between. Additionally, we work with a local furniture company that supplies boxes & assists with logistics.

Floor Demolition

At Cherry Carpet & Flooring, we pride ourselves on being the best choice for all your commercial demolition services. Our skilled and professional workers have extensive experience in every aspect of commercial demolition, whether your project requires a selective or total commercial demolition.  We understand that commercial demolition clients often have different needs than those requiring total building demolition, and our expertise includes commercial buildings, factories, churches, laboratories and hospitals. 

Whether you’re demolishing existing carpet, carpet tile, resilient floor coverings, tile, thin sets, or adhesives, we have the expertise, machines, and techniques to get them removed for you.

With our floor strippers and grinding machines, we can get the job done correctly and efficiently for you.

Subfloor Preparation

Just like an artist’s canvas, subfloor preparation contributes to 70% of a product’s finished look and aesthetics. At Cherry Carpet & Flooring, we follow manufacturer specifications and ASTM specifications to make sure your floor will not only look the best it can look but meet all manufacturer requirements to carry their full warranty through the life of your floor. From grinding, to self-leveling to floor patching compounds, we have the best products, knowledge, and staff to create the perfect canvas for the perfect floor.

Moisture Mitigation

North American commercial property owners spend an estimated $2.4 billion dollars on remediation of structures and floor coverings as a result of moisture-related flooring failures yearly. An additional $2.2 billion dollars is spent on topical moisture treatments, of varying effectiveness, in an effort to address moisture issues prior to the first flooring ever being installed. Moisture vapor emission (MVE) has become more of an issue with fast track construction schedules, changes in adhesives, and sea-level rise over the past decade. Excessive MVE can be caused by lack of cure time under controlled conditions, curing compound, and improper water to cement ratios creating an excessive “water of convenience” used during the placement of a new slab. It can be caused in existing or renovated concrete as well due to lack of vapor retarders, improper or damaged vapor retarders, high ground water, irrigation, poor drainage and high water to cement ratio pours creating interconnected pores.

There are mechanically bonded and roll out sheet options to remediate MVE as well as finishes that are not sensitive to moisture vapor emissions (some resinous systems, ceramic tile and polished concrete.) At Cherry Carpet & Flooring, we have spent many years on education to know how to test, inspect, and ultimately know the best course to remedy these issues.
