When to Clean your Commercial Carpet

For many businesses, whether it is a retail store space or an office building, commercial carpet is the best option for their flooring. Carpet provides an extra layer of cushion for individuals who have to stand all day as well as decrease the risk of injury should a customer or client trip or fall in your establishment. However, like most things in your space, your commercial carpet needs to be cleaned.

For most businesses, commercial carpet cleaning occurs when they believe their carpet is beginning to show signs of dirt or debris. This means that over a long period of time, owners will notice dark areas in the carpet and believe that is the sign of needing cleaning. However, once your carpet starts showing signs of dirt, it typically means the dirt is already too compounded into the fibers to clean successfully.

While it is always best to look to cleaning services when a major spill has occurred on your carpet, your commercial carpet should also be cleaned on a regular basis to help keep it functional and healthy. Dirt that is left on your carpet not only makes your space unhealthy, but it can also begin to break down your carpet, which will then lead to the need to replace the carpet. Particles and allergens that are trapped within your carpet can find their way back into the air, which can decrease your air quality indoors and cause upper respiratory problems in some staff or clients.

Some spaces that tend to require carpet cleaning more frequently include:

  • Retail stores
  • Nursing homes and assisted livings
  • Daycare Centers
  • Medical Offices

Debris that can begin to cause damage to your commercial carpet if left to sit includes:

  • Oils from vehicles
  • Lawn care chemicals
  • Salt from deicing
  • Sand and dirt from parking lots

If you experience this kind of debris, a proper cleaning should occur every 4 months. Offices that don’t see as much foot traffic can wait to have cleaning occur every 6 to 8 months.
