Are You Sticking To Your Commercial Carpet Cleaning Schedule?

Creating a cleaning schedule for your commercial carpet is the best way to ensure its longevity. And once you’ve created a comprehensive cleaning schedule, sticking to it must be a priority.


Carpets in Commercial Buildings

Carpets are a popular choice for use in commercial buildings for a number of reasons. Not only do carpets exude elegance and beauty within a commercial space, they’re great noise reducers which is not only beneficial to those working in the environment, but to visitors and customers if applicable. A benefit that not many people take into consideration is the fact that carpets actually act as a sort of air filter; attracting dust, pollutants and allergens, taking them from the air and collecting them on the floor. With this in mind, it’s obviously important to regularly remove this collection of dust, pollutants, allergens and other particles to get them out of your commercial space.


Waiting For Carpets to Look Soiled

The common mistake to make is waiting for your carpets to become visibly soiled before you set to work on your cleaning. Most commercial carpets see a lot of traffic on a regular basis which means each day there’s going to be soiling – even if it’s not visible. However this build up that is invisible to the naked eye can do damage to your carpet, causing wear and tear that can decrease the lifespan of your carpet. Additionally, regular foot traffic can cause this soiling to really become ingrained making it even more difficult to remove at a later date.


Paying Attention to Problem Areas

Different parts of your carpet are going to age more quickly than others. But by identifying the problem areas you can prolong this process. For example, areas that see the highest percentage of foot traffic are always going to be doorways. Why not place a rug or mat over this area to preserve your carpet? Highlighting the natural flow of movement throughout your building will also help you identify where your carpet is going to deteriorate more quickly.


Increasing the Longevity of Your Carpet

When commercial carpets become quickly worn down, it can be attributed to poor carpet maintenance and the absence of a cleaning schedule. Properly treated, carpets can be a great long-term investment. And carpet maintenance isn’t as costly as other types of flooring which need specialist treatments, such as hardwood floors, so there isn’t really an excuse for neglecting this. With regular basic cleaning such as vacuuming and cleaning of spillages, followed by occasional, more intensive cleaning with professional equipment, your carpet can look as good as new for years to come.


Using Professional Carpet Cleaners

As mentioned above, combining daily vacuuming and basic cleaning with professional carpet cleaning is the best way to keep your carpets looking and feeling great. Hiring a professional carpet cleaner, such as opting for the Kärcher BRC 45/45 C Carpet Cleaner hire, can be an extremely cost-effective way to maintain your carpet – especially if you have a large carpeted area to clean.
