Keeping a clean commercial carpet helps you maintain and improve your reputation, indoor air quality, and workplace safety. However, proper carpet care is more involved than you might realize, especially if your facility experiences a lot of activity. Here are some ways to ensure that your commercial carpeting stays in great shape and gets completely cleaned every time.
How to Ensure You Have a Clean Commercial Carpet
Invest in the Proper Equipment for Commercial Carpet Care
Maintaining pristine carpeting is only possible with the right equipment. Even if you outsource some of your floor cleaning duties, daily and weekly carpet cleaning duties will likely be your responsibility. As such, you’ll want to have a high-powered vacuum on hand, as well as a quality spot cleaning spray. More intensive equipment such as rotary extractors, steamers, and truck mounts, and more, should be provided and used by professional carpet cleaners.
Vacuum Your Carpets Regularly
While deep cleaning your carpets is essential for lasting durability and cleanliness, basic tasks such as vacuuming (which should occur either daily, weekly, or somewhere in between depending on your situation) will reduce the amount of deep cleaning that needs to be done over the long run by keeping dust, dirt, and debris at bay. Staying on top of regular vacuuming will also improve your indoor air quality (IAQ) and keep your carpets looking fresh and bright.
Establish a Plan for Spot Cleaning
When certain liquids land on your carpet, they can leave a stubborn stain -- waiting too long to clean it up or taking the wrong approach can make it difficult to remove the stain. So, the sooner you can properly clean the affected areas of carpeting, the better. The best way to ensure that your carpets remain stain-free is to train relevant employees in proper spot cleaning methods for your commercial carpeting. Those tasked with spot cleaning should understand the importance of blotting vs. wiping/rubbing, as well as which supplies to use to help dissolve the spot before it turns into a stain.
Prevent Dirt and Stains in the First Place
The best way to ensure that your carpets stay clean is to keep dirt, dust, and staining materials away from them to the best of your ability. Keeping your outdoor areas and entryways clean will mitigate the number of harmful materials that eventually make their way onto your carpets. It’s also a good idea to place waterproof mats at strategic locations (i.e., those prone to liquid spills) to soak up any moisture before it can go too far. Taking these preventative measures will facilitate office carpet cleaning across the board.
Partner with Commercial Carpet Cleaning Services
While regular vacuuming and dutiful spot cleaning will keep your commercial carpeting in good shape, these measures alone will not ensure the complete cleanliness of your carpets. For this, you must hire a competent commercial carpet cleaner to periodically perform deep cleaning tasks such as shampooing, steam cleaning, drying, and more.
