Are you a business owner who has commercial carpet throughout your business? If so, properly caring for your commercial carpet can not only keep your business looking clean, but will also prevent the need to replace carpet before it really needs it!
The type of business you own, as well as the amount of foot traffic you get throughout your store can affect the type of cleaning or how often you will want to clean your commercial carpet. Here are some tips we would like to share with you on maintaining commercial carpet:
Retail Store- If your store has a lot of business, and people constantly are coming in and out of your store, you will want to consider professionally cleaning your commercial carpet every 3-6 months. As well as having it cleaned, you will want to have it protected to help the cleanliness last longer. A large factor that causes commercial carpet in retail store to get dirty quickly is the parking lot. Try to keep your parking lot swept as well as keeping entry ways swept and clean. This will prevent excess dirt from being carried in by customers.
Bar or Restaurant- As a restaurant or bar owner, you will need to clean your commercial carpet a little more often that that of a retail store. When you deal with people eating and drinking, you deal with spills and grease being tracked on the carpet from the kitchen. We recommend that you have your commercial carpet professionally cleaned no more than every 3 months. This will ensure that your customers are coming into a clean looking restaurant!
Offices- Depending on the amount of people working within your office, and whether or not you have a lot of visitors will help determine how often an office’s commercial carpet should be cleaned. We recommend that office carpet be cleaned every 6 months to a year depending on foot traffic volume.
Churches- One professional carpet cleaning and protection each year should be sufficient for a church. As foot traffic is limited throughout the week, a simple vacuum after service tied with an annual cleaning will keep church carpet looking great!
Industrial- Many industrial companies do not even consider cleaning their carpet as they tend to believe it needs to be replaced frequently anyway. Believe it or not having a professional commercial carpet cleaning/protectant each quarter can prevent permanent damage from metal shavings, grease, and other rough elements.
Automotive- The longer an automotive company goes without cleaning their commercial carpet, the faster permanent damage will occur. Because of grease and oil elements constantly being tracked across the carpet, it is important to have carpet cleaned at least 4 times a year. Oil can break down into the carpet causing permanent and irreversible damage.
