Maintaining and Protecting Your Commercial Carpet this Winter
We’ve just had our major first snowfall in New Hampshire and it’s a only small preview of what’s to come over the next several months. The snow, slush, and salt your employees and customers track into your business all season long can wreak havoc on your commercial carpet. But, by following these tips, you can do a lot to maintain and protect your commercial carpet this winter.
1. Use Doormats at Every Entrance
If you don’t stop snow, slush, and salt at the door, these elements will make their way into your carpet. Place a heavy-duty outdoor scraper mat at your entrance so your employees and customers can scrape their shoes upon entering your business. Leave a high-quality extraction mat inside your doorway to absorb any remaining moisture or salt the scraper didn’t catch.
2. Remind People to Wipe Their Feet
Believe it or not, a “Wipe Your Feet” sign can go a long way in reminding people to clean off their shoes and boots before entering. It also shows that you care about keeping your facility clean.
3. Use a Boot Tray
Consider placing a boot tray inside your entrance way to encourage employees to leave their boots at the door. If space allows, place a chair or bench so people can easily change their shoes.
4. Invest in Routine Commercial Carpet Cleaning
Your carpet is one of the first things people notice when they come through your doors. And when it comes to running a business, cleanliness matters. Routine commercial carpet cleaning will help remove any ground in salt and sand and eliminate stains, odors, and bacteria. A commercial cleaning also helps protect your carpet so it will last longer.
