GET STARTED TODAY

My name is Pete Alfieris, I am the facilities manager at the College of Engineering and Computer Science, here at UCF. We recently had two office suites recarpeted by your company and I had the pleasure to work with both Devon and Scott. I wanted to express my appreciation for the excellent service and work that was done in our office suite.

They showed up on time and worked until the job was completed with such professionalism. The installers were unbelievable with the care with any of the furniture and both installs. I have received such great praise from staff and faculty members whose offices were done.

Truly an incredible experience! Thank you again Scott & Devon!

Ongoing Best Practices for Facilities Managers

Your carpets at home get cleaned only every now and then, but that’s because there are not that many people who step on them daily. How about a commercial building with hundreds, if not thousands, of people walking across and bringing dirt through every single day though?

How Often Should Commercial Carpets Be Cleaned?

Is the Myth True?

When it comes to carpet cleaning, there is a myth that carpets that get cleaned more often tend to have shorter lifespans. There is some truth behind this myth – but it’s for the wrong reason. 

Carpet cleaning is a difficult job and one that has to be done right. Hence, carpets that have been cleaned more often can have shorter lifespans but only because they were improperly cleaned. 

On the other hand, the truth is that carpets that are cleaned properly will last longer and look great. 

Factors to Consider

Deciding how often commercial carpets should be cleaned depends on many factors. 

Firstly, the carpet color and style play a major role in the decision. For example, a lighter-colored carpet would get dirtier faster than a darker-colored carpet. In this regard, a lighter carpet would probably need cleaning more often than a darker one. 

Another factor to consider is how much foot traffic the carpets experience. Foot traffic revolves around how many people walk on the carpets every day. Understandably, the more foot traffic a carpet takes, the faster it gets dirty. Thus, carpets that take more foot traffic would also probably require more cleaning. 

The type of commercial space also dictates how often carpets should be cleaned. For example, a hospital, nursing home, or other medical space would probably have to abide by some guidelines for cleanliness and sanitation that would require them to have carpets cleaned more often than a different type of commercial space. 

Restaurants and eating establishments might also get their carpets cleaned more often than an office space due to sanitation protocols. 

Best Practices in Cleaning Commercial Carpets

When it comes to carpet cleaning, you’d most definitely want the job done right. Here are some of the best practices when it comes to cleaning commercial carpets in between professional cleanings.

Vacuum Regularly

Professional carpet cleaning might be scheduled months apart but there’s no reason why your carpets can’t be vacuumed regularly. A good vacuum will be able to remove the loose dirt that has found its way onto the carpets. 

Vacuuming the carpets on a regular basis will be able to easily remove the dirt and help prolong the longevity and the beauty of the carpets. If those dirt particles are left over time, they can become harder to remove and become embedded into the carpet itself. 

Spot Clean Right Away

There are some things that vacuums just can’t handle such as spilled coffee or tea. When these accidents occur, the best way to protect and clean the carpets is to spot clean the area right away. 

For tinier spills, the best course of action is to get a paper towel or rag to absorb the excess liquids right away. A carpet cleaning solution can then help remove the stain. However, more serious spills such as glue and other residues often require a professional carpet cleaning service.

Conclusion

Some commercial places get their carpets cleaned once a year while a restaurant might have to get their carpets cleaned every quarter. When it comes to commercial carpets, there are different factors to consider when deciding how often they should be cleaned.
