Having your office cleaned on a regular basis is important to maintain the positive image of your company and to keep your staff members happy. Of course, there are several areas of the modern office that demand special attention, and the floor is one of them, especially if you have carpets.
Here are just three reasons to ensure that your office's carpet is professionally cleaned on a regular basis.
1. Uses Proper Equipment and Expertise
Some companies prefer to have employees clean up themselves, while others rely on the basic cleaning services provided by the building itself. However, going down either route means sacrificing the most effective clean possible. The fact is that commercial cleaning companies will possess far superior equipment plus the expertise necessary to choose and use it.
A commercial service will be able to inspect your carpets, decide on the right treatment method and then make sure the carpet is cleaned to perfection. That might mean using anything from a commercial steam cleaner to a special product or chemical. In any case, you'll end up with a superior final result.
2. Extends the Life of Your Carpet
Most people do not fully understand how easy it can be to damage carpeting while they are cleaning it. You might, for example, decide to use a vacuum cleaner on a shag carpet without first setting the right height. If this is done, you can damage the fibres. On the other hand, you might use a chemical that is too strong on a carpet made from wool, which can react poorly to certain chemicals.
In either case, and in many more besides, treating your carpets improperly is going to mean that they don't last nearly as long. In contrast, a deep cleaning conducted by a professional can extend the life of the carpet by getting to trapped dirt that would have been missed by a vacuum cleaner. Since carpets represent a significant expensive, it's best to keep them looking their finest for as long as you possibly can.
3. Works Around Your Schedule
One of the reasons why it can be hard to keep office carpeting clean is that it will need to be used throughout the day. Quickly going over a carpet with a vacuum cleaner is often all that can be done at the end of a long day. However, an office cleaning company will understand how precious time can be, so they will almost always be able to come in on the weekend, especially if a deep clean is required. By the time you and your team return on Monday, everything will be spick and span.
