Commercial Carpet Cleaning: How Often Should it Be Done?
Updated: Jul 20, 2020
When it comes to your flooring, routine cleaning is always important, but a thorough commercial carpet cleaning for your business goes a long way. In this month’s NH Cleaning Service’s blog, we discuss how often you should have your commercial carpet cleaned.
Benefits of Commercial Carpet Cleaning
In addition to increasing the longevity of your flooring and protecting your investment, routine commercial carpet cleaning:
improves the look of your office
removes dirt from heavily-trafficked areas
improves overall indoor air quality
reduces employee health problems related to allergies and bacteria
How Often Should You Clean Your Commercial Carpet?
Most commercial carpet is designed to hide traces of dirt, but if you’re noticing that yours looks a bit duller than it usually does, it’s probably time to schedule a commercial cleaning. Obviously, every business environment is different and each space within experiences different amounts of foot traffic.
According to the IICRC, a non-profit certification and standards-developing organization for the inspection, cleaning, and restoration industries, the right way to think about carpet cleaning is “periodic”—something done on a regular basis that can vary according to your environment and conditions. As detailed in IICRC’s recent infographic, areas of high humidity—including hospitals, restaurants, schools—require more frequent cleanings, as do those areas where dirt and dust regularly filter in.
New Hampshire Cleaning Services will help you create a commercial carpet cleaning schedule that works with your specific needs and budget—whether it’s monthly, quarterly, or annually—to protect your investment for years to come.
Commercial Carpet Cleaning Process
With a commercial carpet cleaning, stains, dirt, bacteria, and allergens are extracted through several methods, the most common of which is a hot water extraction (HWE) process. The carpet cleaning professionals at New Hampshire Cleaning Services use self-neutralizing chemicals that flush out dirt and pollutants hiding deep within carpet fibers. All of the chemicals we use are non-toxic, hypoallergenic, biodegradable, and fast drying, resulting in a quick, and easy commercial cleaning process that won’t cause harm to your employees or the environment.
