Carpeted floors are essential for several office buildings. They cover unsightly areas and add an attractive element to the interiors.
However, these are just as likely to be stained and harbor germs as are residential carpets. This is why several professional cleaning services offer carpet cleaning and maintenance services.
Fabric, designs, colors and styles of carpets vary between residential and commercial facilities. You choose more practical options which add to the professional look of your facility. Similarly, when choosing a professional carpet cleaning service, you must understand that commercial cleaning is different.
Goals of carpet cleaning
Most homeowners only hire a carpet cleaning service when the fabric is stained. They do this to solve a problem that has already occurred. In this case, carpet cleaning services are used as a solution to carpet woes.
In contrast, commercial carpets are usually more expensive, so the focus is on maintenance. Furthermore, regular cleaning is often not possible by staff, especially in larger facilities.
Thus, in commercial facilities, the goal of hiring a professional service is to keep the carpet clean and tidy. This is more of a preventive maintenance to avoid any harm to the fabric. Most often, regular services are hired for cleaning once a week or every few days.
Type and amount of traffic
The regularity of cleaning depends on the type and amount of traffic. Commercial spaces expect more traffic compared to homes and other residential properties.
In addition, the location of a carpet can dictate the amount of traffic too. Rugs and small carpets in the entrance or corridors get a lot more traffic than, let’s say, conference rooms.
The amount of foot traffic also varies with the type of commercial facility. For example, restaurants typically see a lot less traffic than airports. Carpets in industrial spaces, such as manufacturing plants, experience lot more grime than an office building or a doctor’s clinic.
Frequency and quality expectations
The location, both in terms of the facility and geographical region, dictates the frequency and quality of commercial carpet cleaning. For instance, restaurants and other eateries see a lot less traffic but have to be clean with no speck of dust in sight. These facilities often hire regular carpet cleaning services.
Because of the huge traffic, airports choose to hire all day services to have someone cleaning up some part of the facility. There are just too many carpets and too many people coming in from everywhere to keep it tidy with once a day cleaning.
If you own or manage a commercial property which is carpeted, we recommend getting in touch with our cleaning service. We can help you determine the type and frequency of cleaning required by your facility.
