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.

Tip Number Two: Backpacks Rule!

No, not the kind your children use to go to school, we are talking about low-noise, energy efficient, easy to use, dirt and pollutant sucking, four-level filter HEPA backpacks.

These powerful vacuum backpacks are easy to carry so you can quickly get to the dirt which saves you time and money. These backpacks pick up at least 99.9% of indoor pollutants and are earth friendly. This means less employees calling in sick due to indoor air pollutants and allergens.

Compared to the old conventional upright vacuum, these new, light weight and efficient vacuum backpacks produce less body stress as they minimize the "hunching over" and fatigue often associated with upright vacuum cleaners. Due to the natural walking motion associated with the backpack vacuum, more carpet is cleaned in a shorter amount of time; in fact, most workers are able to vacuum more than twice the area with the help of backpack vacuums.
