Taking Care of the Commercial Carpet in Your Office

The commercial carpet installed in your office is designed for heavy use, high traffic areas. However, you still need to maintain it if you want it to stay fresh, clean, and looking good for years.

You made a significant investment purchasing the carpeting for your office. Your staff and your clients see it and walk on it every day. There’s a ton of traffic that comes through your office space on a daily basis and your carpeting plays a large part of the first impression you give your customers when they visit.

Regular cleaning helps remove soil & stains that build up in your carpet and create damage and wear over time. You should have a commercial carpet cleaning service professionally clean your carpet every 6 months. If you’re office is super busy, you should consider having your carpet cleaned more frequently. The key is to not let too much time pass between each professional carpet cleaning because built up soils can be damage your carpet.

When stains & soil build up in carpeting, over time the traffic and movement of the carpeting starts to wear away the integrity of the carpet. This will cause worn spots, rips, and break-down of the carpeting. Regular cleanings prolong the life of the carpeting in your office because they remove the soils that damage your carpet.

Another way your professional carpet cleaner can prolong the life of your commercial carpets is to apply a post-cleaning carpet protector. This added protection prevents some of that damaging buildup.

Between cleanings, it is crucial that your office carpeting is vacuumed regularly. Vacuuming removes many of the dry soils, which can eventually become embedded in the carpet over time and lead to further damage. It is best to remove these soils before they become a problem. This can be done with vacuuming. Whether you do it yourself or you hire a cleaning service, vacuuming is essential to prolonging the life, good looks and fresh feel of your commercial carpets.

The high traffic areas should be vacuumed daily. These are generally the hallways, areas near doorways and entrances. Don’t forget about under the desks. These areas should also be vacuumed regularly because shoes and rolling chairs can deposit soil and then rub it in as the chairs move around during the workday.
