Does carpet cleaning reduce the life of my carpet?
This common urban myth, is not true. In fact, the more often you have your carpet professionally cleaned, the longer it will last and the more attractive it will be. However, there is no smoke without fire, and in this case there is a grain of truth in the myth. If your carpet is not professionally cleaned, residue will be left behind. This can leave your carpet looking dirtier than when you started. Consequently, you should always make use of a professional cleaning service when it comes to your commercial carpets.
Regular vacuuming is actually one of the most important steps to maintaining a clean office carpet. But how often should you vacuum? The answer to this question depends on the level of use that area receives. This can range from daily for high traffic zones to weekly for areas with little footfall.
Stains need to be cleaned as soon as they appear. This will make them easier to deal with and less likely to have a lasting affect. You should use a professional for this job, as stain removers and techniques, if applied incorrectly, can actually damage your carpet.
This is a method of fully deep cleaning your office to prevent any lasting carpet damage and to keep it looking, and smelling, fresh. The frequency of preventative cleaning will depend on the particular area you are cleaning, and the amount of traffic in that area. For example, your reception and entrance may need this treatment once a month, while your offices may only need this to be implemented 4 times a year.
