How often do I need to Commercial Carpet Cleaning?

Carpeting a Commercial Facility in Dublin can cost hundreds of euros.  Flooring is a huge investment that facility managers naturally want to protect.  So, what’s the best way to give your carpet a longer, healthier life? Regular professional carpet cleaning!

Too often we’re asked to clean carpets that are visibly soiled. We’re always happy to offer our help with your carpet cleaning requirements.  But, as with most things in Life, Prevention is better than the cure.

The time to clean is before it looks like it really needs it.  A regular schedule of carpet cleaning – once every 6 months, for instance – can remove the visible dirt and the “hidden” dirt that can quickly erode the carpet.

Getting rid of these culprits with regular carpet cleaning will greatly improve the look of your floor and, more importantly, will make it more durable and extend its life of your flooring.  Not only does carpet cleaning freshen up the appearance of your carpet, but it also keeps the fibres from matting and crushing. This is the natural consequence of foot traffic, but a professional carpet cleaning will lift those fibres back where they’re supposed to be, and get all that dirt and grime that’s been matted down with it.

How often should you clean your carpet? Everything that finds its way onto your carpet contributes to dulling its appearance, giving it a stale odour, and eroding the strength of its fibres. If you have any of the following being tracked in and through your commercial facility, you may need to have it cleaned every 4 to 6 months:

– Residual oils from car exhaust, factories, etc.
– Fine dirt and grit that’s present on most outdoor surfaces
– Sand from parking lots and certain types of production facilities
– Chemicals used on grass and in manufacturing plants

What types of facilities need more frequent carpet cleaning?  Facilities with high foot traffic, or where food is prepared/served .  Areas that are regularly inhabited very young or elderly people (Creches and Nursing Homes Etc.,).

One final tip: You can reduce the frequency of your commercial carpet cleaning somewhat by putting out protective floor mats around high-traffic locations and where food is prepared or eaten, like break rooms, water coolers, elevators and doorways.
