Carpet Cleaning Essentials for Your Commercial Property.
Dirt and germs that accumulate in carpeting will accelerate wear and reduce office cleanliness. Let’s look at a few simple ways you can protect your carpeting investment through regular carpet care.
Install Floor Mats
More than 80% of the dirt in your building is walked in via foot traffic. Floor mats at entry points capture and contain that dirt, protecting flooring throughout
Avoid Chemical Overload
Carpet cleaning chemicals can leave behind sticky residues that actually collect more dirt, leaving carpets dingy over time. Generally, only properly diluted chemicals that break down oily, sticky dirt stains and rinse clean from the carpet should be used for spotting.
Deep Clean Regularly
Over time, dirt and skin particles sift down deep into carpeting, out of reach of vacuums. Regular hot water extraction cleaning lifts dirt and germs from the carpet base, improving appearance and cleanliness.
Having your carpet professionally cleaned every 12 months is a requirement for most carpet warranties; a receipt from a certified carpet cleaner is required to file a claim.
Replace As Needed
Even the best-tended carpet will need to be replaced eventually. Make sure your building maintenance plan and budget accommodate the full lifecycle of your carpets to keep your building looking its best year-round.
