Carpets are an important part of any workspace. They not only add aesthetics, but also provide comfort for your staff and visitors They are a necessary part of any office layout for a variety of reasons, ranging from insulation to ambience.
As necessary and important as they are, they can also be a hotbed of bacteria, dust, and mould, leading to trapped odours, wear & tear, an unpleasant office aesthetic, and more. Read on to find out why your workspace needs professional carpet cleaning.
How should carpets in offices be cleaned?
The carpets you find in businesses are different than the ones you find at home. Not only are the carpets usually tiled, but they’re also usually a lot thinner.
Vacuuming is a simple but effective way to clean the carpets. It takes care a lot of the surface dust and dirt, while also improving how it looks. However, just vacuuming is not quite enough, dirt, and moisture can become trapped below the outermost layer of the carpet. They require regular deep cleaning to keep their condition up to a high standard. This requires a much stronger piece of equipment.
Deep cleaning and the handling of the equipment involved is something that should be done by professionals. It removes the hardest to reach dirt, dust, and debris that might be stuck in the carpet fibres, and professional cleaning services will maintain a high standard that saves you the headache of planning and organisation.
It's important to consider when a deep cleaning for carpets may be important. Consider at what times of year dirt is most likely to be dragged into the office, or if any kind of construction project or refurbishment is happenign in or around the building.
