Take Care to Protect Your Commercial Carpet

Commercial carpeting is made for high traffic, and it’s a good thing it is, because it typically undergoes a great deal of wear and tear. Fortunately for business owners, there are steps you can take to keep your carpet looking great, and prolong your carpet’s lifespan.

While commercial carpets are made to withstand more traffic, they also require more maintenance. Commercial carpets should be vacuumed daily – but not just for aesthetics. Vacuuming daily removes both seen (and unseen) dirt and debris from carpet’s pile and prevents it from wearing down fibers.

It is also important to use the right kind of vacuum to clean your carpets. Commercial cleaning services use commercial vacuums to clean your business’ carpet, as they are built to handle heavier dirt loads than residential vacuums. Commercial vacuums are also more durable than residential vacuums.

Just like vacuuming regularly, it is also important to have your carpets regularly deep cleaned. Many businesses do not have their carpets cleaned on a regular schedule simply because they don’t appear dirty. However, commercial carpets are made to hide stains and dirt – and thus do not look dirty to the eye. As a result, carpet pile may be degraded by unseen (and untreated) dirt and stains.

Another way to prolong the life of your carpet is to ensure office chairs have protective mats underneath them. Chair rollers can damage carpet but trapping dirt and pushing it further into the pile – even more than normal foot traffic!

Maintaining your commercial carpet is not difficult, but the basic maintenance steps described above should be done consistently and frequently to protect your investment and extend the life of your carpet. Replacing your business carpeting can be expensive, but a consistent cleaning schedule or regular service by a professional carpet cleaning company will protect your investment.
