Let’s face it; it is not cheap to replace an old carpet with a new one! Often times, carpet cleaning is neglected due to a lack of time, lack of knowledge, and other various reasons.
A dirty carpet leads to many negative effects that will directly impact your business. Many customers believe that the cleanliness of your establishment is a reflection of the quality and products that your particular industry offers.
Dirty carpets also harbor a significant amount of dirt, dust, mold, mildew and allergens that contaminate the air and put your employees in a harmful environment.
Here are some simple and important tips that will preserve the appearance of your company, maintain a healthy environment, and protect your initial carpet investment.
1. Provide Door Mats
Many people underestimate the benefit of having door mats within your establishment. When a person walks through your door, they track in excess dirt, dust and moisture. Especially with the winter season coming right around the corner, sand, snow and salt will damage your carpet. Providing door mats at the entrance of every door will considerably reduce the amount of excess dirt that enters our building.
2. Apply Spot Cleaning
If something is accidentally dropped or spilled onto the carpet, clean the area immediately! The longer you delay this process, the more likely a stain will result.
Use a plain white and absorbent cloth or paper towel to blot the area. Start from the outside of the stain and blot your way to the inside until the area is barely damp. Do not scrub or brush the area as it will likely damage your carpet.
The next step is to apply a carpet cleaning solution. Make sure that you carefully follow the directions that are labeled on the product. It is a good idea to test the product on an excess or hidden piece of carpet to make sure that a negative reaction does not occur.
3. Have Your Carpets Professionally Cleaned
In a high foot-traffic area, carpets should be vacuumed daily. However, in low foot -traffic areas, carpets should be vacuumed one to two times per a week. It is important to note that usually only up to 80% of carpet dirt is loose and removable with regular vacuuming.
Business owners often assume that their carpets do not need to be professionally cleaned simply because they look clean. Do not wait to have your carpets professionally cleaned! Carpets should be professionally cleaned by a reputable company once to twice a year.
Dust, dirt, soil, mildew and mold will collect below the surface. If you wait until your carpet shows visible signs of being dirty, it is possible that you will experience irreversible damage.
