Although a lot of businesses believe their cleaning crew or owner can manage carpet cleaning alone, this isn’t always the case. Consider a commercial space where customers frequent. Possibly they walk down the same aisles over and over. Or, they may congregate in one area in the showroom. This consistent use can create lingering tracks and dirt that prove difficult to get out.
Some business owners try to keep tracks down with a standard vacuum care plan as done by their owner or even a maid crew. This may work the first few times, but if that carpet is put through a brutal rain or snow, things could change drastically.
The bottom line is, even if a business owner is diligent about cleaning, the equipment they use may not be efficient or powerful enough to handle the job. This is where a professional commercial carpet cleaner can step in and help.
If you’re considering a professional carpet cleaner, consider the following:
1) Assess your foot traffic for what areas are most used. This is going to help the cleaner understand what areas to focus on. They also may be able to suggest some solutions to mitigate dirt. Mats or runners are a huge bonus for lots of dirt and grime. A professional carpet cleaning company can find solutions to issues that you may not have thought of.
2) Assess what type of dirt you have. Some people say “dirt is dirt” and “why do we need to know what kind of dirt it is?” The truth is that all dirt is not created alike. Mud and the way to remove it is vastly different from oil. Oil is vastly different from dust. Letting your professional carpet cleaner know what he or she is up against can help them to effectively do the job.
3) Ask for referrals from friends and family. Sometimes friends and family have a great solution that they have used. This can help to cut out some of the searching a good professional cleaning company.
A professional service will ask you for information, assess the space first-hand and then understand what they need to do to achieve the desired results. When you do hire a professional company, they likely are going to have some type of trained workers using special equipment. This is what sets them apart from using residential tools. Many of the equipment is truck-mounted, which gives it the power to get the job done quicker and more efficiently.
A benefit of allowing a professional service take on your commercial carpet needs is they can easily remove stains, dirt and mud that has built up deep in the fibers. Many times they have steam treatments available that can easily extract dirt from carpets. They also can protect the carpet from additional stains by applying other treatments. These treatments are not always available to residential users. Professional companies know when to turn up the strength when it is needed.
