Why You Should Have Your Carpets Cleaned Professionally

Let’s be honest. When you walk into a hotel or business…a dirty carpet can really give you the heebie jeebies. In fact---the last time I stayed in a hotel I specifically kept my shoes on the whole time because I could feel the filth in the carpet. This leaves a complete distaste in a customer’s mind and will ensure you won’t have returning customers.

Dirty carpets hold particles that will damage carpet over time, increasing wear and tear, making it almost impossible not to change the carpets sooner than you thought. Commercial carpet cleaning on a regular basis can be the deciding factor, you make as a business owner, to keep your carpets for the long-haul.

The fibers in your carpet can also trap a variety of airborne pollutants, including chemicals, dust, and dirt. These germs can have your guests feeling allergy ridden. By keeping your carpets clean with professional services, you can rest assured that your indoor air is free of toxins. And your business smelling like a business should.

The Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification states that 79% of soil in carpet is dry soil. Vacuuming is a key component to proper care and maintenance of carpet.

Preventative maintenance actions also include: 

  • Regular vacuuming
  • Spot removal
  • Moving furniture to change traffic patterns
  • Using walk-off mats to limit the amount of soil tracked onto the carpet

Our professional cleaning can address moderate and heavy soil conditions in your carpets. How often you will need professional cleaning depends on soil build-up, traffic, type and color of carpeting. A good rule of thumb would be to professionally clean your carpet every 12 months. The best advice is to clean carpets before they become totally saturated with soil. If you wait until carpets look really dirty, the carpets may never be restored to their former appearance. Dirt builds up in layers, and when a carpet looks dirty you are only seeing the dirt at the tips of the fibers. More dirt is hiding below the surface down near the base of the pile, causing damage to the carpet. When a carpet is saturated with dirt, the soil has penetrated crevices and has become firmly lodged.
