Carpet Cleaning as Winter Ends and Spring Begins for Your Crofton Office
Winter is almost over, so it is time to schedule carpet cleaning for the office. After a season of dragging in dirt, mud and salt, your carpets need a deep clean. Beside extending the life of your carpet, there are other benefits to a good end-of-winter/beginning of spring carpet cleaning.
Benefits of Winter/Early Spring Carpet Cleaning
1. Easy Scheduling
Before the masses begin their spring cleaning, get on the schedule of a professional carpet cleaner. In the transition from winter to spring, appointment times are much more flexible.
2. Refresh and Restore Your Carpet
Dust, mold, pollen and allergens can build up in your carpet. When your team walks on the carpet, the debris is disturbed and released into the air. Vacuuming will not eliminate all the pollutants. Rejuvenate your carpets with a deep clean.
3. Morale of the Office
Did you know clean floors are among the most frequently cited metrics in customer satisfaction surveys? Clean carpet can make a great impression on your customers and staff. When you care for your work environment, a place most employees consider a second home, you may even see a boost in productivity.
There are a variety of methods for cleaning, so meet with a carpet cleaning professional, like Office Pride of Washington, D.C.-Crofton, for an assessment of what would be most suitable for your workplace. While typical vacuuming or deodorizing may help on a daily or weekly basis, you might want to consider these techniques at this time of year.
Carpet Cleaning Methods
1. Spot Cleaning and Spot Removal
Spots on carpet are inevitable. No matter the quality of your carpet, accidental spots will happen. Never rub or scrub a spot on your carpet. That will only push the spot deeper into the carpet, making it even tougher to remove. When a spill occurs, try to absorb as much of the liquid as possible. If you use an over-the-counter spot remover, test it on a small, hidden area first and wait for it to dry to ensure it does not damage the color of your carpet. Professional carpet cleaners can eliminate unwanted spots without compromising the quality and look of the carpet.
2. Bonnet Cleaning
Bonnet cleaning, also known as encapsulation cleaning, is a low-moisture deep cleaning that uses a rotating floor machine with a cleaning pad. As it moves over the carpet, the agitation causes dirt to rise and be absorbed by the cleaning pad. This method can extend the life of your carpet. Bonnet cleaning can be performed three or four times between more extensive extraction cleanings.
3. Extraction Cleaning
Hot-water extraction is a safe and effective way of cleaning carpets. Other methods do not penetrate as deeply into the fabric of the carpet. This cleaning is non-toxic and environmentally friendly. The high temperature of the water disinfects the carpets and sets it free from dust, allergens and germs. This kind of specialized carpet cleaning completely depends on the type of foot traffic, carpet color and style, and type of commercial space you have. Carpets can be cleaned quarterly, every six months or annually.
Of course, you will want your entire office to be cleaned in anticipation of spring. For a thorough spring cleaning, your professional cleaner will focus on high traffic areas like lobbies and restrooms, as well as places germs hide in plain sight like elevator buttons and door handles.
