Carpet Cleaning Tips for Your Business
If you are a business owner and have carpeted floors, it’s important to be diligent about getting them professionally cleaned. Businesses typically have high foot traffic which means they often need to be cleaned more regularly than residential carpets. Not only will regular cleaning keep your carpets looking great, but they will also extend their life, saving your business money in the long run.
When it comes to creating a cleaning schedule, the cleaning frequency depends on your type of carpet and business. Lighter colored carpets tend to show more dirt and will need more frequent cleanings than darker carpets. Short pile carpets are more common in commercial properties and usually hold less dirt than a higher pile carpet. When it comes to traffic, a higher traffic business needs to be cleaned more frequently. A restaurant business has significant food traffic from customers and employees and should be cleaned at least weekly with a professional cleaning about once a month. Lower traffic businesses, like an office building, should be professionally cleaned between 6-12 months depending on the amount of foot traffic.
