Why it is important to have your carpet cleaned in your office.
Did you know that for the average household, regular vacuuming is the best way to keep your carpets clean? Regularly vacuuming means 2x per week, with SLOW repetitive back and forth strokes. And by slow, we mean it should take you approximately 15-20 minutes to vacuum a 300sq ft room. This should help remove about 80% of the dry soil in your carpet. Even with regular vacuuming, it is recommended that your have your carpets deep cleaned once per year. And this is on carpet where most folks remove their shoes before walking on.
Now, how about the carpets in your business or office? We do not normally ask people to remove their shoes before entering...and we have a LOT of soil to track indoors here in Oregon! It is recommended that offices and places of business have their carpets Professionally cleaned anywhere from every 3 months to a year. It depends on the type of business and amount of traffic - school and healthcare environments should be deep cleaning more often than, say, a Real Estate Office.
Soil is not only unsightly on carpeting, surprisingly, it can actively wear down your carpet faster. Soil particles work their way down into the carpets backing, and act as a grinding compound. As the carpet is walked on, the particles can cut the fibers. This will eventually lead to fiber loss, and potentially, bare spots in the carpeting.
Soiled carpet can also become a breeding ground for mold and other microbes. Regular Professional Cleaning can help reduce the risk of repeated illness in your workplace, as well as reduce symptoms of allergies or asthma.
