Hire Commercial Carpet Cleaning Services For Your Business
Businesses spend lots of money on their décor, from the upholstery to the carpets and area rugs in order to boost their overall image. The goal is to have a setting that impresses customers and enables the employees feel comfortable and well taken care of. Poorly maintaining the carpets will have adverse effects on the desired professional image of the company, and also lead to loads of cash being lost in unwarranted repair costs, reduce the productivity of the workforce, and require the carpet to be replaced much sooner than had been anticipated. Let’s look at some of the reasons why routine carpet maintenance is key.
- For potential customers, first impressions are everything
From malls and restaurants, to hotel lobbies and office buildings, when clients walk in and find the carpets looking all dirty and dingy, it will be off-putting. It portrays the business premises as one that is not mindful of the environment in which it offers the products and services which is not how you want things playing out. That initial impression will set the tone of future engagements, so you want to make it positive. A well-maintained carpet will showcase the level of care you put in the different facets of your operations, which will be key in winning their confidence.
- Protect the health and well-being of your clientele
That soiled carpet is loaded with substances that put the health of your clients and employees at risk. For starters, it is the largest air filter in the room that it has been placed in. At the onset, this is actually a good thing. The nature of the carpet – with all its fibres, enables it to lock in the dust particles and allergens that are floating around the indoor air space. So, unlike the smooth floor surfaces which simply allow the dust and allergens to recirculate within the room, the carpet improves the indoor air quality by trapping these substances. However, as this accumulation continues, these particles are easily dislodged and released back into the airspace. Deep cleaning is needed to enable the carpet to continue performing optimally as an air filter.
The dust settling onto the carpet from the airspace is just the tip of the iceberg. Potential health issues that come with a soiled carpet include bacteria from the decaying organic material, contaminants that have been tracked into the building on shoes, all through to pet accidents for those commercial spaces that allow cats and dogs into the facility. Even dust mites are walking around boldly in the carpet, with all they need to survive within that lush pile. With the average person shedding around 1.5 million dead skin cells every hour, there’s plenty of food to sustain the dust mites that are residing in the carpet. Has there been a recent remodelling project in the facility? Then there could be dust from drywall, wood and other kinds of construction dust particles that have accumulated within the carpet. Add this to the biological messes like faecal residue from insects coming to feed on the food crumbs in the carpet, saliva be it from the roaches or rodents, vomit and blood from both humans and pets, to viruses coughed or sneezed into the interior space. From office buildings, daycares, nursing homes, schools and churches, the necessity of these services cannot be overestimated.
Fungi like mould is an issue as well, especially for those carpet cleaning jobs that weren’t appropriately done, leaving behind the material too wet. This allows the fungi to grow, and the last thing you want to deal with is a mould infestation in your business premises. These will release spores and mycotoxins into the interior space, which put the health of your staff and the customers who have come seeking your products and services at risk. This is why professional carpet cleaning companies incorporate drying systems into their processes, to extract the bulk of the moisture from the carpet, and cut down the drying time, preventing the fungi from growing in the unit.
- Giving your carpet a longer life
As the dirt is trampled on and crushed into the carpet fibres, it causes them to wear out. In commercial facilities, this happens at a much faster rate due to the high levels of foot traffic that are handled. The first step in ensuring that the carpet lasts for long is definitely getting one which has been designed for the high traffic areas, with a highly durable material. Next is ensuring that the carpet cleaning is routinely done, to remove the abrasive gunk and ward off the wear and tear effects of everyday use. The frequency of the commercial carpet cleaning sessions will depend on the rate of dirt build up and how busy the premises is. For establishments that are highly prone to spills and accidents, like restaurants, kid- and pet-friendly businesses where the little ones are up and about all day, it’s also recommended that you have spot treatments that are safe for your carpet, to deal with the stains and spills the moment they are formed. This will enable them to be completely removed.
