For many commercial offices and establishments, the idea of cleaning carpets often gets set aside. To some extent, they may even be disregarded. And who can blame them? Skipping carpet cleaning is a way to avoid extra expenses and troubles. These offices and establishments have used this motivation to come up with different reasons to skip carpet cleaning.
With our years-long experience in commercial carpet cleaning services, we have encountered a lot of these reasons. The more business owners hold on to these reasons, the more inconvenience it would take them over time. That is why we need to enumerate, discuss, and debunk these common misconceptions.
“The carpet was already cleaned last year.”
Some carpets in well-maintained rooms can indeed last for more than a year without cleaning. However, this is not always the case. As a general rule for most commercial carpets, we recommend having a six-month carpet cleaning schedule. And if the carpet is within a busy and dusty area, carpet cleaning should be done more often.
Let’s say you still want to argue this reason to avoid the cost of cleaning services. If so, then you will need to do a lot of maintenance. One thing you need to consider is to keep all entry and exit points matted. This way, you will keep all dirt, dust, and soil from entering your carpet. Also, you must clean them often even before the dirt accumulates and starts to get visible. Instead of cleaning them with soap, you wash them by having them vacuumed with a roller brush.
“The carpet will be replaced soon.”
Perhaps the easiest way to fix your problems with commercial carpets is to just buy a new one. After all, why should you stick to a dirty and worn out carpet? You know that it is more convenient to replace them with a new one. Alright, some old and worn out carpets belong to the garbage can. But if your dirty carpet is less than five years in use, replacing them immediately is a waste.
For these dirty yet relatively new carpets, they can be revived through restorative cleaning. Through a series of cleaning methods, your carpet will be clean and good as new. Not only will you save money from buying a new rug. You will also reduce the waste you would have put on your nearest landfill.
“The carpet is not on our budget.”
The fact that you have a carpet in your office shows that you are capable of maintaining them. As a commercial space owner, keeping your space clean for your workers and clients is a must. Instead of doing this on your own, you must hire a commercial janitorial and cleaning services. These cleaning services will then take care of all maintenance and cleaning services you need, including your carpets.
However, many janitorial services do their job in a general sense. They may mop up a few stains and vacuum a dusty cabinet here and there. But most of the time, they are not specialized in carpet cleaning. They often do not have the right tools to do the task of making the carpet 100% clean. To achieve maximum carpet cleaning, you must hire expert carpet cleaners specialized for the job.
“The carpet still looks clean enough.”
If it still looks clean, then why bother cleaning it up? Well, all the dirt you can visually see is an accumulation of minute dirt, dust, and microbes. Even if it looks clean, there will inevitably be microscopic dust and dirt on your carpet. And if you let them untouched because they still look clean, you are just allowing them to accumulate.
“The carpet salesperson told us to avoid cleaning.”
Years ago, many carpet sellers would tell their clients to avoid cleaning their carpets. That was before innovative carpet cleaning businesses become popular. It was the time where soap and water are the most common tools used in cleaning carpets. But as you might now, these soaps often leave residues that attract more dirt and dust. It makes the carpet dirtier than it was before.
Nowadays, with the advent of high-technology and power cleaning services, this is no longer an issue. And as the quality of carpet cleaning increases, the quality of your carpet will be maintained for years.
