How to Maintain Carpet in Commercial Cleaning

Updated: Mar 15

Vacuum Regularly

Vacuuming in a commercial facility is very important to the overall cleanliness of a workplace. If commercial space is not vacuumed regularly, dirt can become embedded in the carpet fiber causing the carpet to appear dirty. Carpet that is not properly maintained by commercial janitorial contractors show dark wear patterns, spots, and matted fibers. By vacuuming the carpet daily, janitorial services can remove dirt from the carpet given it a fresh appearance. When carpet is properly maintained from a vacuum program, spills on the carpet are much easier to remove.

Treat Spots as Soon as Possible

Creating a program of surveying a commercial facility for spots on the carpet is very important. By treating a spot within 24-48 hours, the success rate of removing it increases by 72%. Also, by regularly treating spot areas, when a spill is new you can sometimes receive information from tenants or customers on what was spilled. It is essential in carpet cleaning to have a spotting kit that can remove a myriad of different carpet spots. It could be a coffee stain, ink stain, mustard stain, etc. Treating it early gives you the best chance at removal.

Carpet Extraction

A carpet extraction is a cleaning method that uses a machine equipped with a wand that sprays heated water at a PSI range of 300-1000 on to the carpet. Simultaneously, the water is vacuumed up, along with any dislodged and dissolved dirt from the PSI. Most carpet manufacturers recommend carpet extraction for a frequency of either every 6 months for high traffic areas or every 12 months for low traffic areas. Extracting carpet too often can causing the fibers in the carpet to thin and or discolor because the backing materials is too wet.
