Commercial Carpet Cleaning Myths

Whether you run a retail store or work within an office building, your space more than likely has some kind of carpet within it. A commercial carpet can bring several benefits to your office or retail space, but only if it remains clean. A dirty carpet can drive away clients and customers because it shows your establishment in a negative light. If they feel as though your space is unclean and unhealthy, they will most likely not return. However, there are three big commercial carpet myths that could be preventing you from keeping your establishment as clean as possible.

I can simply rent a machine and clean myself

While there are steam machines available for rent to clean commercial carpets, it could cause more damage to your carpet. This is because the machines tend to release a large amount of water onto the carpets without being as successful when removing the water. If you do not successfully remove all of the moisture from your carpets, mold and mildew can begin to grow, causing serious health hazards.

I just bought this carpet a year ago, it doesn’t need cleaning

Even though your carpet may still appear new, it doesn’t mean it is clean. By the time your commercial carpet begins to show signs of dirt, the damage has already been done. Constant activity over your carpet will cause dirt, dust, and other stains to become compacted into your carpet, causing the fibers to breakdown before any sign of damage is visible.

A sprinkle-on deodorizer is enough for my commercial carpet

While this may seem like an easy fix to odors, it can cause serious and irreversible damage to your carpet. Most deodorizers use talcum powder as a base, which doesn’t dissolve in water. As the talcum powder residue builds in between the fibers of your carpet, you have a greater chance of causing white stains when you go to use a steamer.
