“I want my business to look its best, obviously,” Glenda said. The Dorchester area retailer opened her doors as soon as COVID restrictions allowed, but “we took quite a hit, being closed,” she said. “So I’m being somewhat cautious when it comes to spending money. The carpets in here are – well, they’re not ratty, of course, but they’re not super attractive either.”
Pricing new carpeting was an eye-opening experience for Glenda. “To say it was more than I expected is an understatement!” she laughed. “But my business mentor had a surprising suggestion. She said ‘before you spend that money, why don’t you try having the carpets professionally cleaned?’ I told her that I vacuumed all the time, and she said ‘not the same thing. Have the commercial carpet cleaners come in, you’ll see.'”
How Often Should Commercial Carpets Be Cleaned?
Many small business owners don’t know that commercial carpeting needs deep cleaning to look its best. When customers are walking around in your facility, they bring in a lot of dirt, dust, and grime from the world outside. In wintertime, snow and salt get tracked everywhere. Even the most diligent person using a vacuum just isn’t going to be able to get all of that material out of the carpet. That’s why here in the Dorcester area, commercial carpet cleaning is recommended at least once every four months.
When Your Carpet Looks Funky, It Smells Funky: A Case for Commercial Carpet Cleaning
As a Dorchester janitorial service, we know our job isn’t done until the facility looks good and smells good. One source of lingering bad odor can be the carpet. The dirt and debris people track in on their shoes can contain organic matter that gets lodged in the carpet fibers. As this organic matter breaks down, it can create a bad lingering odor. Commercial carpet cleaning removes these odors and leaves your facility smelling fresh.
“After the Dorchester janitorial service cleaned my carpets, they looked amazing, frankly!” Glenda said. “I even had customers remark on them being new. And yes, my mentor was right – it is much, much cheaper than carpet replacement. Before you spend the money for new carpeting, try having them deep cleaned first.”
