As professional carpet cleaners, we provide services for a number of commercial settings. From restaurants to office buildings, we deal with a range of commercial facilities.
Office buildings are different because of the type of traffic. These are spaces where people spend at least 8 hours of their day.
Just like working is linked to coffee, coffee is linked to moisture. Moisture gets trapped in carpets and facilitates growth of mold and dust mites.
Professional carpet cleaning
Most of our clients who own or manage an office, ask us how often they should get their carpets cleaned. There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this.
In fact, most of the times, we factor in the number of carpeted floors, the size of areas to be cleaned, and other factors before recommending a cleaning schedule. We may need other data as well. Our experts often ask you the following questions:
How many people usually walk on different office carpets?
Usually, the entrance and corridor will experience higher traffic. Similarly, main office areas, including cubicles will have more people walking around, several times a day. In contrast, meeting rooms and conference areas see less foot traffic.
What carpet color do you have?
Color plays an important role; even a slight smudge will show up on lighter ones. White, cream, light blue and other soft shades are bound to appear dirty within a day.
On the other hand, red, maroon, brown and darker blue carpets are more resistant to stains and dirt. So, they hardly ever show any signs of dirt.
What carpet styles have you laid in the office?
Certain fabrics and designs are more prone to getting dirty. Others, not so much.
For example, carpets made of softer fibers will provide a feasible environment for mold and bacteria to grow, resulting in foul odor. However, those with brittle fibers will not let them settle easily and prove it hard for these microbes to grow.
What’s the purpose of cleaning?
While most offices require regular cleaning, some need services for particular events. For instance, if a company expects investors’ visits every month, they’d want all the carpets in top condition. In such a case, we recommend frequent cleaning to ensure carpets remain tidy and fresh.
