With every industry and every business being different it’s understandable that when it comes to the frequency with which you should have your carpets cleaned, there isn’t a ‘one size fits all’ answer. In fact as individual businesses require different needs the decision often rests on a variety of factors.
If you’re after a short answer then it’s this……
Try to schedule carpet cleans often enough in order to avoid a build up of dirt, dust, and bacteria. More often than not the nature of your business should dictate how often this is. For example, if you’re a large business with multiple employees and visitors all trampling on your carpet, then you might want to opt for a quarterly or even monthly clean. That said there are some other underlying factors you might want to take into consideration too. These include,
- The style, colour, and quality of your carpet
- The type of business you conduct (Are you in the construction industry and continually have workers with muddy boots walking over your carpet?)
- The type of image you’re looking to convey (Is a pristine carpet really important to the image of your business? Think hotels, etc)
What you might not know is that apart from looking unsightly, a dirty carpet can be a health hazard as it becomes a filter for bacteria, germs, and mould spores. Therefore, in theory, not having your carpet professionally cleaned might mean that you lose productivity as your staff go sick. The other point is that a clean and inviting carpet portrays to potential customers that you operate an efficient business with high standards, so that’s definitely something worth considering!
So what methods of carpet cleaning are best?
At Carpet Cleaning Kings, we use the hot water extraction method. This is where portable or truck-mounted systems inject hot water together with eco-friendly cleaning compound at speed deep into your carpet fibres. This loosens off all the dirt, debris, oils and greases that normal vacuuming won’t or can’t remove. Powerful vacuums then suck up the water quickly leaving your carpet not only deep down clean, but almost dry too. This is important because it gives as little disruption to you and your business as possible.
All things considered, commercial carpet cleaning should be carried out somewhere between monthly and yearly. If carpet traffic is heavy then a more frequent approach to maintain cleanliness might be a better option. Alternatively if traffic is light then an annual carpet clean should suffice.
