Customer Questions

Ask a Question
Can you explain to me the difference between the Eco soft carpet tiles and the premium soft carpet tiles.
The difference between the 5/8" Eco-Soft Carpet Tiles and the Premium Soft Carpet Tiles is the quality. The Premium Soft Carpet Tiles are made with a nylon fiber with a stain defender blended into the fiber. Nylon is a very strong fiber, so the carpet will stand up to more abuse and with the stain fighter blended in will look great for a long time to come. The Premium Soft Carpet Tiles do have a rougher texture to them, so they are not always the best for areas where children will be on the floor constantly. The 5/8" Eco-Soft Carpet Tiles are made with a polyester fiber which is softer but doesn't last as long. This softer fiber is great for areas where children will be on the floor constantly, but will not stand up to the constant abuse for very long.
Will these interlock with the soft foam tiles? I would like to use carpet tiles in an area for rolling chairs, and then transition them to soft foam tiles.
Our Eco-Soft Carpet will interlock with our Premium Soft Tiles.
Do these tiles do well in outside patio and in hot/cold weather.
Lorraine Powers
These tiles are recommended for indoor use only.
Do I have to glue them to the basement concrete self-stick isn't going to work?
michael c dunleavy
You do not have to glue our 5/8" Eco-Soft Carpet Tiles. These tiles are interlocking tiles and once installed will stay in place due to the weight of the collective group.
How does your flooring hold up to basement floods? Is it mold resistance?
Our Eco-Soft Carpet tiles are water resistant, but are not waterproof. These tiles can handle a great deal of water, but may not hold up as well as our other foam tiles. This is due to the tiles having a carpet top. If your basement were to become flooded, we would recommend removing the flooring as soon as possible. The tiles are very light, so they will float in the water. Once you have the flooring removed, we recommend placing the tiles outdoors to air dry. There you can assess the amount of damage that has occurred to your flooring. These tiles are mold and mildew resistant, so any staining that occurs on the tiles is usually due to alkali coming up from the concrete.
Does it hold up well with dogs?
Our Eco-Soft Carpet Tiles can be punctured by dog nails, but are still a great choice for any room in your home. For floors that hold up better to dogs, we do offer a wide range of carpet tiles that will still give you the soft feel with the durability that you need. Please feel free to check out our carpet tiles page.
I'm building a golf simulator room and was planning to use carpet and padding attached to OSB covering the walls and ceiling. Is it possible to use the interlocking rubber tiles or carpet tiles instead? Thanks!
Our Eco-Soft Carpet Tiles would be the same as using the carpet and padding on the OSB board. You would just glue the carpet tiles to the OSB and install on your walls and ceiling like you were going to with the standard carpet.
Can these be used outdoors to cover a cement patio?
Our Eco-Soft Carpet Tiles are not made to be used outdoors. If they were to be used outdoors, the carpet may fade and the foam made degrade due to the elements.
Would this carpet help to reduce noise? I have a quite heavy dog, and i live in the second floor. i have already received complains from my downstairs neighbors.
Our 5/8" Eco-Soft Carpet Tiles will help to reduce the noise cause by your dog. This may not eliminate all the noise that is created, but it will greatly reduce it. These tiles feature a very thick, high density EVA foam that helps to insulate both sound and warmth. If you still have issues with noise after installing these tiles, we would recommend placing another layer of underlayment underneath the tiles.
I'm looking for an outdoor carpet for my Sunroom. What do you guys recommend? Thanks.
We don't recommend installing our 5/8" Eco-Soft Carpet Tiles outdoors, but they can and have been used outdoors successfully. These tiles are easy to clean and maintain, and if a tile does become damaged, just simply replace it with a new one.
How exactly are they waterproof? What happens when they get wet from basement moisture? Like after a heavy rain?
Our 5/8" Eco-Soft Carpet Tiles are not waterproof, but they are water resistant. If there is a minor flooding event, all you have to do is remove the tiles and place them outside so that they can air dry. If there is a major flooring event with sitting water over several days, the tiles may get damaged beyond repair. These tiles are made of foam, so they will float and could be salvaged by allowing the tiles to air dry and cleaning them properly. These tiles are mold and mildew resistant.
How stain resistant are these? Can they be vacuumed or steam-cleaned like regular carpet?
The recommended cleaning instructions typically include vacuuming the tiles on a medium setting to remove any loose or dry crumbs, dust, or debris. To clean harder set in stains or liquids off the low cost carpet tile, the tiles can be wiped off with a damp rag or can be temporarily lifted and cleaned under warm running water in a sink or tub. Do not steam clean the tiles.
Do these tiles come with finishing edges? Most I see, say they come with 2 finishing edges, but I can't find that remark on your site.
Our Eco-Soft Carpet Tiles come with two removable edge pieces that will allow you to create a corner, border, or center tile. You will be able to create a finished floor with these edges.
I am trying to calculate how many tiles I will need for my project. The size of Eco-soft carpet tiles is specified as 24x24; however, each tile includes border pieces which will be discarded in the field area. Does the measurement include the border or is it taken from peak to opposite valley? What is the tile size without border pieces? Thank you.
The Eco-Soft Carpet Tiles are 2' x 2' with the border pieces attached. When measured from peak to valley without the border pieces, the size of a tile is 23.12" x 23.12".
Can you use these as a type of rug or do you have to run from wall to wall. I have dogs that I want to give a walk way to but don't want to do the entire floor. Will they move under your feet when you walk or do they grip to the floor?
You can install our 5/8" Eco-Soft Carpet Tiles as a custom rug or as full room flooring. As a rug, the tiles will not move under foot under normal walking conditions.
Does this flooring have a rubber backing to provide grip to a concrete floor? I am looking for a material that could be used in place of a rubber backed turf rug for softball/baseball?
Our 5/8" Eco-Soft Carpet Tiles have a foam backing and would provide ample grip on a concrete floor.
The Eco Soft Carpet tiles do not indicate they are non-toxic but the Premium Soft Carpet tiles do state that in the highlights. Are the Eco Soft Carpet tiles also non-toxic?
Our 5/8" Eco-Soft Carpet Tiles are non-toxic and are tested on a regular basis to ensure this. These tiles are phthalate free and are free of formamide and other allergens and hazardous materials.
I am renting with carpet in the apartment. Is it fit to install this over the old carpet? Thanks.
You can install our 5/8" Eco-Soft Carpet Tiles over existing carpet. Since this is a temporary floor, you can pick them up and install them in your new space.
Would your product work by a bedside in case of falling out of bed to prevent some impact from a wood floor?
Our 5/8" Eco-Soft Carpet Tiles can be installed around a bed to help deaden a fall from the bed. These tiles feature a thick and impact resistant foam that is perfect for this type of installation.
Will the Eco-Soft Carpet Tiles placed over wood floorboards in a cold 3-season room make it warmer? The room is fully enclosed with vinyl windows and uses a split air/heater but is still cold in the winter. I need flooring that will make the room warmer for sure.
Our Eco-Soft Carpet Tiles will help to keep your room warmer. If the room itself is drafty, you still will have that, but at least the cold won't come up from the subfloor below. Our foam carpet tiles are constructed with closed-cell EVA foam that helps to prevent the temperature transference.
Is there a beveled edge available? I am in need of a smooth transition from current flooring to this soft tile?
William Krah
Currently, we do not have a beveled edge for our 5/8" Eco-Soft Carpet Tiles. We recommend using standard transition pieces for flooring when going from one room to the other.
Can standard double-sided carpet tape be used with these tiles without damaging the foam backing? They will be used in a trade show and will need to be taped down in the configuration we have planned and reused repeatedly.
If you use our double-sided tape under our 5/8" Eco-Soft Carpet Tiles, it can damage the foam backing. We do offer a less aggressive tape in our Mat Tape, that you could use under the tiles that will not damage the tiles. You would just fold it over as you would do with Scotch tape.
I need the tiles to be in an L shaped area. Do you have edge pieces for inside corners?
Jim Kiernan
Since the border pieces on our 5/8" Eco-Soft Carpet Tiles are removable, you could place the borders where needed to create an inside or outside corner.
What glue do I use to glue to plywood walls and ceiling for golf simulators?
robert walsh
To put our 5/8" Eco-Soft Carpet Tiles on a wall or any of our foam tiles, we would recommend using our SprayTac Adhesive. This spray adhesive has a very strong and quick bond.
For the eco or premium carpet tiles: Would we have to fill cracks in our concrete garage floor? Does the floor need to be completely level?
Your concrete doesn't have to be totally level or flat to install our 5/8" Eco-Soft Carpet Tiles. If the cracks are pretty small width wise and height wise, the tiles will install just fine without being damaged. If the cracks are large and are large height-wise, then we would recommend purchasing a leveling compound for your concrete.
Can the tiles be cut to size?
Our 5/8" Eco-Soft Carpet Tiles can be easily cut with a sharp utility knife and straight edge.
