Most of us probably know that feeling you get when you install brand new carpeting in your office space. It could be a result of office restoration or simply an upgrade to your current office look. Still, brand new carpets really make a big difference, both aesthetically and health-wise. And, when choosing your new office carpets the process can prove to be a bit overwhelming, with all the possible colors, materials, fabrics, and shapes. But, once everything is done and set, you are left with brand new carpets giving your office a new and improved look. So, what could ever go wrong here?
We will deal with our first issue regarding professional carpet cleaning. Or, maybe it’s better we call it a potential misconception. Ok, so there is a long-standing misconception stating that cleaning your new office carpets will cause them to wear out sooner. Is it true or not? First of all, let’s start by saying that a lot of today’s carpets can actually be much dirtier than they seem to be since they are designed to conceal dirt and stains. In this way, it may seem at first like your carpet is pretty clean and there is no need to call your cleaners when that actually isn’t the case. It may even sound mind-blowing, but some carpet weave designs are so good at hiding dirt and stains that even as much as a full pound can be extracted from just one square foot during the cleaning process. What isn’t a misconception is the fact that if you let dirt linger in your office carpets it will wear them out sooner rather than later. Bear in mind that dirt, soil, and other substances will act as abrasives and will eventually cause damage to your carpet fibers. To avoid any of this, even with your new office carpets, make sure to keep in touch with your cleaning company; they will advise you and tell you when the time is right to have your beautiful carpets professionally cleaned.
We will stay on the topic of your carpets (not) looking dirty with our next carpet cleaning issue. So, if your office carpets don’t appear dirty, can you put off the cleaning? As we’ve said, nowadays carpets may seem clean when in reality they are not. That is why it is essential to work closely with experienced cleaners who will know to assess the situation and clean the carpets when they should be cleaned. Your office carpets can hide more than just dirt and stains which is why regular and professional cleaning is a must. They can actually conceal germs, various pathogens, chemicals as well as other pollutants, trapping and then releasing them into the air as people walk across your carpets. This is why it is crucial to plan carpet cleaning in order to keep your employees, clients and/or customers healthy. With commercial carpet cleaning comes the expertise and the equipment to remove all the dirt, germs, and toxins potentially lurking in your carpets.
Final carpet cleaning issue to discuss today is the necessary cleaning process time. Business owners sometimes feel that cleaning their office carpets will interfere with the daily activities at the office and that the drying process will be so long their business will have to close until the process is done. So, is this fear justified? Well, not so much, to be perfectly honest. Today’s professional cleaning companies can use a low-moisture method to clean your office carpets. The idea behind this process is that it traps and lifts dirt from carpet fibers using a soap-free product, leaving the carpet looking and smelling clean and fresh without long dry times. Of course, this isn’t the only method that can be used and experienced technicians will know how to choose the right one, as well as the right equipment for properly cleaning your office carpets. In any case, they will do their best not to interrupt or disturb your regular office activities.
